Micah 4:1-5 (NRSV)
A promise of peace
In days to come
the mountain of the Lord's
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and shall be
raised up above the hills.
Peoples shall stream to it,
nations shall come and say:
"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the house of the God of Jacob;
that he may teach us his ways
that we may walk in his paths."
For out of Zion shall go forth instruction,
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
He shall judge between many
and shall arbitrate between strong nations far away;
beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn
war any more;
but they shall all sit under their own vines
their own fig trees, and no one shall make them afraid;
for the mouth of the
Lord of hosts has spoken.
For all the peoples walk,
each in the name
of its god,
but we will walk in the name of the Lord our God
