From you shall come forth for me
    one who is to be ruler in Israel;
Whose origin is from of old,
    from ancient times.

Footnotes

  1. 5:1–6 Salvation will come through a “messiah,” an anointed ruler. The Book of Micah shares with Isaiah the expectation that God will deliver Israel through a king in the line of David. Bethlehem-Ephrathah is the home of the Davidic line.
