Micah 5:8-9

8-9Yes, the purged and select company of Jacob will be

like an island in the sea of peoples,

Like the king of beasts among wild beasts,

like a young lion loose in a flock of sheep,

Killing and devouring the lambs

and no one able to stop him.

With your arms raised in triumph over your foes,

your enemies will be no more!

10-15"The day is coming"

—God's Decree—

"When there will be no more war. None.

I'll slaughter your war horses and demolish your chariots.

I'll dismantle military posts

and level your fortifications.

I'll abolish your religious black markets,

your underworld traffic in black magic.

I will smash your carved and cast gods

and chop down your phallic posts.

No more taking control of the world,

worshiping what you do or make.

I'll root out your sacred sex-and-power centers

and destroy the God-defiant.

In raging anger, I'll make a clean sweep

of godless nations who haven't listened."
