A Promised Ruler Will Come From Bethlehem

Jerusalem, you are being attacked.
    So bring your troops together.
Our enemies have surrounded us.
    They want to slap the face of Israel’s ruler.

The Lord says,

“Bethlehem Ephrathah, you might not be
    an important town in the nation of Judah.
But out of you will come for me
    a ruler over Israel.
His family line goes back
    to the early years of your nation.
It goes all the way back
    to days of long ago.”
