Now strong city,[a] gather your soldiers!
    They are surrounding us for the attack!
They will hit the Judge of Israel
    on the cheek with a stick.

The Messiah to Be Born in Bethlehem

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
    are the smallest town in Judah.
Your family is almost too small to count,
    but the “Ruler of Israel” will come from you to rule for me.
His beginnings[b] are from ancient times,
    from long, long ago.
