 with a rod upon the cheek.
5:2 But thou, Beth-lehem Ephratah, [though] thou art little
 among the thousands of Judah, [yet] out of thee shall he come
 forth to me [that is] to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth
 [have been] from of old, from everlasting.
5:3 Therefore will he give them up, until the time [that] she
 who travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his
 brethren shall return to the children of Israel.
5:4 And he will 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 will he be great to the ends of the earth.

 come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces,
 then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight
 principal men.

 the land of Nimrod in its entrances: thus will he deliver [us]
 from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he
 treadeth within our borders.

 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.
5:8 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 goeth
 through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none
 can deliver.
5:9 Thy hand shall be lifted up upon thy adversaries, and all
 thy enemies shall be cut off.

 I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will
 destroy thy chariots:

 all thy strong holds:
5:12 And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thy hand; and thou
 shalt have no [more] sooth-sayers:

 images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship
 the work of thy hands.
5:14 And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so
 will I destroy thy cities.
