Micah 2:11-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 If one possessed of a lying spirit
    speaks deceitfully, saying,
“I will preach to you wine and strong drink,”
    that one would be the preacher for this people.

12 [a]I will gather you, Jacob, each and every one,
    I will assemble all the remnant of Israel;
I will group them like a flock in the fold,
    like a herd in its pasture;
    the noise of the people will resound.

13 The one who makes a breach goes up before them;
    they make a breach and pass through the gate;
Their king shall go through before them,
    the Lord at their head.


  1. 2:12–13 This announcement of salvation to the “remnant of Israel” stands out dramatically in the context, and is probably a later addition to the words of Micah, coming from the time of the Babylonian exile. The content of the promise and the images are similar to those found in Second Isaiah, the great poet of Israel’s salvation and restoration (see Is 40:11; 43:5).
