Micah 7:11–17

11 The day for building your wallsf will come,

the day for extending your boundaries.

12 In that day people will come to you

from Assyriag and the cities of Egypt,

even from Egypt to the Euphrates

and from sea to sea

and from mountain to mountain.h

13 The earth will become desolate because of its inhabitants,

as the result of their deeds.i

Prayer and Praise

14 Shepherdj your people with your staff,k

the flock of your inheritance,

which lives by itself in a forest,

in fertile pasturelands.a l

Let them feed in Bashanm and Gileadn

as in days long ago.o

15 “As in the days when you came out of Egypt,

I will show them my wonders.p

16 Nations will see and be ashamed,q

deprived of all their power.

They will put their hands over their mouthsr

and their ears will become deaf.

17 They will lick dusts like a snake,

like creatures that crawl on the ground.

They will come tremblingt out of their dens;

they will turn in fearu to the Lord our God

and will be afraid of you.
