Bible: Micah 5:2-3

A King Will Come and a Remnant Will Prosper

5:2 As for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, 1 

seemingly insignificant 2  among the clans of Judah

from you a king will emerge who will rule over Israel on my behalf, 3 

one whose origins 4  are in the distant past. 5 

5:3 So the Lord 6  will hand the people of Israel 7  over to their enemies 8 

until the time when the woman in labor 9  gives birth. 10 

Then the rest of the king’s 11  countrymen will return

to be reunited with the people of Israel. 12
