[a] (A)But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
    who are too little to be among the clans of (B)Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
    one who is to be (C)ruler in Israel,
(D)whose coming forth is (E)from of old,
    from ancient days.
Therefore he shall give them up (F)until the time
    when she who is in labor has given birth;
then (G)the rest of his brothers shall return
    to the people of Israel.
And he shall stand (H)and shepherd his flock (I)in the strength of the Lord,
    in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
And they shall dwell secure, for now (J)he shall be great
    to the ends of the earth.
