Micah 5-7 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Messiah Will Be Born at Bethlehem
5 Now gather yourself in troops,
The Coming Messiah
2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
3 Therefore He shall give them up,
Judgment on Israel’s Enemies
When the Assyrian comes into our land,
7 Then the remnant of Jacob
10 “And it shall be in that day,” says the Lord,
God Pleads with Israel
6 Hear now what the Lord says:
“Arise, plead your case before the mountains,
3 “O My people, what have I done to you?
6 With what shall I come before the Lord,
8 He has shown you, O man, what is good;
Punishment of Israel’s Injustice
9 The Lord’s voice cries to the city—
“Hear the rod!
13 “Therefore I will also make you sick by striking you,
15 “You shall sow, but not reap;
Sorrow for Israel’s Sins
7 Woe is me!
3 That they may successfully do evil with both hands—
5 Do not trust in a friend;
Israel’s Confession and Comfort
8 Do not rejoice over me, my enemy;
11 In the day when your walls are to be built,
God Will Forgive Israel
14 Shepherd Your people with Your staff,
15 “As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt,
16 The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might;
He does not retain His anger forever,
Revelation 7 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Sealed of Israel
7 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3 saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” 4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
5 of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed;
A Multitude from the Great Tribulation
9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 10 and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” 11 All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying:
“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom,
13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
14 And I said to him, [b]“Sir, you know.”
So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to [c]living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
Psalm 135 New King James Version (NKJV)
Praise to God in Creation and Redemption
135 Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord;
5 For I know that the Lord is great,
8 He [c]destroyed the firstborn of Egypt,
13 Your name, O Lord, endures forever,
15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
19 Bless the Lord, O house of Israel!
Praise the Lord!
Proverbs 30:5-6 New King James Version (NKJV)
