Micah 5:7-15 New International Version

7  The remnant of Jacob will be in the midst of many peoples like dew from the Lord, like showers on the grass, which do not wait for anyone or depend on man. 8  The remnant of Jacob will be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples, like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among flocks of sheep, which mauls and mangles as it goes, and no one can rescue. 9  Your hand will be lifted up in triumph over your enemies, and all your foes will be destroyed. 10  "In that day," declares the Lord, "I will destroy your horses from among you and demolish your chariots. 11  I will destroy the cities of your land and tear down all your strongholds. 12  I will destroy your witchcraft and you will no longer cast spells. 13  I will destroy your idols and your sacred stones from among you; you will no longer bow down to the work of your hands. 14  I will uproot from among you your Asherah poles[1]when I demolish your cities. 15  I will take vengeance in anger and wrath on the nations that have not obeyed me."
