MICAH 5
1: Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops: he hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek.
2: But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
3: Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
4: And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.
5: And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.
6: And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders.
7: And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the LORD, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men.
8: And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver.
9: Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.
10: And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots:
11: And I will cut off the cities of thy land, and throw down all thy strong holds:
12: And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers:
13: Thy graven images also will I cut off, and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands.
14: And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities.
15: And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.


MICAH 6
1: Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice.
2: Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD's controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the LORD hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel.
3: O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? testify against me.
4: For I brought thee up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of servants; and I sent before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
5: O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim unto Gilgal; that ye may know the righteousness of the LORD.
6: Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?
7: Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8: He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
9: The LORD's voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.
10: Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is abominable?
11: Shall I count them pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of deceitful weights?
12: For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
13: Therefore also will I make thee sick in smiting thee, in making thee desolate because of thy sins.
14: Thou shalt eat, but not be satisfied; and thy casting down shall be in the midst of thee; and thou shalt take hold, but shalt not deliver; and that which thou deliverest will I give up to the sword.
15: Thou shalt sow, but thou shalt not reap; thou shalt tread the olives, but thou shalt not anoint thee with oil; and sweet wine, but shalt not drink wine.
16: For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I should make thee a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing: therefore ye shall bear the reproach of my people.


PSALM 120
1: In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
2: Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
3: What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
4: Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
5: Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
6: My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
7: I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.


PSALM 121
1: I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2: My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
3: He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4: Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5: The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6: The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7: The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8: The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.


PSALM 122
1: I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2: Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3: Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
4: Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
5: For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
7: Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
8: For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
9: Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.


PSALM 123
1: Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
2: Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
3: Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4: Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
