Micah 4:8-10 Modern English Version (MEV)

As for you, watchtower of the flock,
    citadel of the daughter of Zion,
to you it will come, the former dominion will come,
    kingship for the daughter of Jerusalem.

Now why do you cry loudly?
    Have you no king?
Has your counselor perished,
    that agony has seized you like the woman in labor?
10 Writhe and bring forth, daughter of Zion,
    like the woman in labor,
because now you will go forth from the city
    and reside in the field,
and you will come to Babylon.
    There you will be rescued;
there the Lord will redeem you
    from the hand of your enemies.

Micah 4:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

As for you, watchtower of the flock,
    stronghold[a] of Daughter Zion,
the former dominion will be restored to you;
    kingship will come to Daughter Jerusalem.

Why do you now cry aloud—
    have you no king[b]?
Has your ruler[c] perished,
    that pain seizes you like that of a woman in labor?
10 Writhe in agony, Daughter Zion,
    like a woman in labor,
for now you must leave the city
    to camp in the open field.
You will go to Babylon;
    there you will be rescued.
There the Lord will redeem you
    out of the hand of your enemies.
