[a] Now you are walled about with a wall;[b]
    siege is laid against us;
with a rod they strike upon the cheek
    the ruler of Israel.

The Ruler from Bethlehem

[c] But you, O Bethlehem Eph′rathah,
    who are little to be among the clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
    one who is to be ruler in Israel,
whose origin is from of old,
    from ancient days.
Therefore he shall give them up until the time
    when she who is in travail has brought forth;
then the rest of his brethren shall return
    to the people of Israel.
