Oh Little Town of Bethlehem

Scripture 3 of 12:

About 700 years before Jesus’ birth:

1 But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
    are the smallest town in Judah.
Your family is almost too small to count,
    but the “Ruler of Israel” will come from you to rule for me.
His beginnings are from ancient times,
    from long, long ago.
The Lord will let his people be defeated
    until the woman gives birth to her child, the promised king.
Then the rest of his brothers will come back
    to join the people of Israel. Hebrew Scriptures Book of the Prophet Micah chapter 5 Easy to Read Version
