Micah 4:8

Context

4:8 As for you, watchtower for the flock, 1 

fortress of Daughter Zion 2 

your former dominion will be restored, 3 

the sovereignty that belongs to Daughter Jerusalem.

1 tn Heb “Migdal-eder.” Some English versions transliterate this phrase, apparently because they view it as a place name (cf. NAB).

2 sn The city of David, located within Jerusalem, is addressed as Daughter Zion. As the home of the Davidic king, who was Israel’s shepherd (Ps 78:70-72), the royal citadel could be viewed metaphorically as the watchtower of the flock.

3 tn Heb “to you it will come, the former dominion will arrive.”
