Micah 4:13

Context

4:13 “Get up and thresh, Daughter Zion!

For I will give you iron horns; 1 

I will give you bronze hooves,

and you will crush many nations.” 2 

You will devote to the Lord the spoils you take from them,

and dedicate their wealth to the sovereign Ruler 3  of the whole earth. 4 

1 tn Heb “I will make your horn iron.”

2 sn Jerusalem (Daughter Zion at the beginning of the verse; cf. 4:8) is here compared to a powerful ox which crushes the grain on the threshing floor with its hooves.

3 tn Or “the Lord” (so many English versions); Heb “the master.”

4 tn Heb “and their wealth to the master of all the earth.” The verb “devote” does double duty in the parallelism and is supplied in the second line for clarification.

sn In vv. 11-13 the prophet jumps from the present crisis (which will result in exile, v. 10) to a time beyond the restoration of the exiles when God will protect his city from invaders. The Lord’s victory over the Assyrian armies in 701 b.c. foreshadowed this.
