Micah 4:8-10 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

And you, Tower of Flocks,[a]
    your time will come.
Ophel, hill of Zion,
    you will again have the right to rule.
Yes, the kingdom will be in Jerusalem
    as it was in the past.

Why Must the Israelites Go to Babylon?

Now, why are you crying so loudly?
    Is your king gone?
Have you lost your wise leader?
    Is that why you are suffering like a woman in labor?
10 Cry out, you people of Jerusalem,[b] and feel the pain,
    as if you were giving birth.
You must go out of the city
    and live in the fields.
You will go away to Babylon,
    but you will also be saved from that place.
The Lord will come and rescue you there.
    He will take you away from your enemies.
