2 And you, O Bethlehem of Ephrath, least among the clans of Judah. From you shall come forth to rule Israel for Me - One whose origin is from old, from ancient times.

 2b Truly, He will leave them [helpless] until she who is to bear has borne; then the rest of the countrymen shall return to the children of Israel. 3 He shall stand and shepard by the might of the LORD, by the power of the name of the LORD his God and they shall dwell [secure]. For lo, he shall wax great to the ends of the earth;

2 But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah are only a small village in Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel will come from you, ones whose origins are from the distant past.

3 The people of Israel will be abandoned to their enemies until the time when the woman in labor gives birth to her son. Then the last fellow countrymen will return from exile to their own land.

4 And he will stand to lead his flock with the Lord's strength, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. Then the people will live there undisturbed, for he will be highly honored all around the world and he will be the source of our peace.
