Micah 5:6

Context

5:6 They will rule 1  the land of Assyria with the sword,

the land of Nimrod 2  with a drawn sword. 3 

Our king 4  will rescue us from the Assyrians

should they attempt to invade our land

and try to set foot in our territory.

1 tn Or perhaps “break”; or “defeat.”

2 sn According to Gen 10:8-12, Nimrod, who was famous as a warrior and hunter, founded Assyria.

3 tc The MT reads “in her gates,” but the text should be emended to בַּפְּתִיחָה (baptikhah, “with a drawn sword”).

4 tn Heb “he”; the referent (the coming king) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
