Micah 4:1-13
1. In days to come the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised up above the hills. Peoples shall stream to it,
2. and many nations shall come and say: "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths." For out of Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
3. He shall judge between many peoples, and shall arbitrate between strong nations far away; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more;
4. but they shall all sit under their own vines and under their own fig trees, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.
5. For all the peoples walk, each in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.
6. In that day, says the LORD, I will assemble the lame and gather those who have been driven away, and those whom I have afflicted.
7. The lame I will make the remnant, and those who were cast off, a strong nation; and the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion now and forevermore.
8. And you, O tower of the flock, hill of daughter Zion, to you it shall come, the former dominion shall come, the sovereignty of daughter Jerusalem.
9. Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counselor perished, that pangs have seized you like a woman in labor?
10. Writhe and groan, O daughter Zion, like a woman in labor; for now you shall go forth from the city and camp in the open country; you shall go to Babylon. There you shall be rescued, there the LORD will redeem you from the hands of your enemies.
11. Now many nations are assembled against you, saying, "Let her be profaned, and let our eyes gaze upon Zion."
12. But they do not know the thoughts of the LORD; they do not understand his plan, that he has gathered them as sheaves to the threshing floor.
13. Arise and thresh, O daughter Zion, for I will make your horn iron and your hoofs bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples, and shall devote their gain to the LORD, their wealth to the Lord of the whole earth.

Micah 5:1-14
1. Now you are walled around with a wall; siege is laid against us; with a rod they strike the ruler of Israel upon the cheek.
2. But you, O Bethlehem of Ephrathah, who are one of the little clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to rule in Israel, whose origin is from of old, from ancient days.
3. Therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has brought forth; then the rest of his kindred shall return to the people of Israel.
4. And he shall stand and feed his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God. And they shall live secure, for now he shall be great to the ends of the earth;
5. and he shall be the one of peace. If the Assyrians come into our land and tread upon our soil, we will raise against them seven shepherds and eight installed as rulers.
6. They shall rule the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod with the drawn sword; they shall rescue us from the Assyrians if they come into our land or tread within our border.
7. Then the remnant of Jacob, surrounded by many peoples, shall be like dew from the LORD, like showers on the grass, which do not depend upon people or wait for any mortal.
8. And among the nations the remnant of Jacob, surrounded by many peoples, shall be like a lion among the animals of the forest, like a young lion among the flocks of sheep, which, when it goes through, treads down and tears in pieces, with no one to deliver.
9. Your hand shall be lifted up over your adversaries, and all your enemies shall be cut off.
10. In that day, says the LORD, I will cut off your horses from among you and will destroy your chariots;
11. and I will cut off the cities of your land and throw down all your strongholds;
12. and I will cut off sorceries from your hand, and you shall have no more soothsayers;
13. and I will cut off your images and your pillars from among you, and you shall bow down no more to the work of your hands;
14. and I will uproot your sacred poles from among you and destroy your towns.

Psalms 145:1-9
1. I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever.
2. Every day I will bless you, and praise your name forever and ever.
3. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; his greatness is unsearchable.
4. One generation shall laud your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.
5. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
6. The might of your awesome deeds shall be proclaimed, and I will declare your greatness.
7. They shall celebrate the fame of your abundant goodness, and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
8. The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9. The LORD is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made.

Proverbs 30:11-14
11. There are those who curse their fathers and do not bless their mothers.
12. There are those who are pure in their own eyes yet are not cleansed of their filthiness.
13. There are those-- how lofty are their eyes, how high their eyelids lift!
14. There are those whose teeth are swords, whose teeth are knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, the needy from among mortals.

Revelation 10:1-11
1. And I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire.
2. He held a little scroll open in his hand. Setting his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,
3. he gave a great shout, like a lion roaring. And when he shouted, the seven thunders sounded.
4. And when the seven thunders had sounded, I was about to write, but I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and do not write it down."
5. Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and the land raised his right hand to heaven
6. and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and what is in it, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it: "There will be no more delay,
7. but in the days when the seventh angel is to blow his trumpet, the mystery of God will be fulfilled, as he announced to his servants the prophets."
8. Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me again, saying, "Go, take the scroll that is open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land."
9. So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll; and he said to me, "Take it, and eat; it will be bitter to your stomach, but sweet as honey in your mouth."
10. So I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it; it was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter.
11. Then they said to me, "You must prophesy again about many peoples and nations and languages and kings."
