4th Sunday of Advent
But you, Bethlehem, David’s country,
the runt of the litter—
From you will come the leader
who will shepherd-rule Israel.
He’ll be no upstart, no pretender.
His family tree is ancient and distinguished.
Meanwhile, Israel will be in foster homes
until the birth pangs are over and the child is born,
And the scattered brothers come back
home to the family of Israel.
He will stand tall in his shepherd-rule by
centered in the majesty of
And the people will have a good and safe home,
for the whole world will hold him in respect—
Peacemaker of the world!
-Micah 5:2-4 (The Message)
