Biblical Law and Prophets

Today's Scriptures:
Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5-6 (The Ten Commandments)
Micah 4 (a prophecy)

Today I particularly liked Micah 4: 11-13.


English-Micah 4: 11-13
11 Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.
12 But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the LORD, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.

French-Michée 4: 11-13
11 Maintenant plusieurs nations se sont rassemblées contre toi: Qu'elle soit profanée, disent-elles, Et que nos yeux se rassasient dans Sion!
12 Mais elles ne connaissent pas les pensées de l'Éternel, Elles ne comprennent pas ses desseins, Elles ignorent qu'il les a rassemblées comme des gerbes dans l'aire.
13 Fille de Sion, lève-toi et foule! Je te ferai une corne de fer et des ongles d'airain, Et tu broieras des peuples nombreux; Tu consacreras leurs biens à l'Éternel, Leurs richesses au Seigneur de toute la terre.

Spanish- Míqueas 4: 11-13
11 Ahora empero se han juntado muchas gentes contra ti, y dicen: Sea profanada, y vean nuestros ojos su deseo sobre Sión.
12 Mas ellos no conocieron los pensamientos de Jehová, ni entendieron su consejo: por lo cual los juntó como gavillas en la era.
13 Levántate y trilla, hija de Sión, porque tu cuerno tornaré de hierro, y tus uñas de metal, y desmenuzarás muchos pueblos; y consagrarás á Jehová sus robos, y sus riquezas al Señor de toda la tierra.

I liked these verses because they once again showed how God has got our back. Even when the world seems against you, God will protect you. Even when the world thinks it has the upper hand, they are only unknowing pawns in His plan. And in the end all the evil they do will end up right and all gains will be used to exalt Him!

We just have to have faith that that which others mean for evil are a part of His plan and His plan is for good! Work your faith!
