\\INTRODUCTION TO MICAH 5\\

This chapter begins with a prophecy of the siege of Jerusalem,
\\#Mic 5:1\\; and then follows another concerning the place of the
Messiah's birth, \\#Mic 5:2\\; and of the case of the Jews, either before
or after it, \\#Mic 5:3\\; and of Christ's office as a shepherd, and of
his grandeur in the world, \\#Mic 5:4\\; and of his being a peacemaker,
and protector of his people from their enemies, \\#Mic 5:5,6\\; and of
his people, the great increase of them, and their usefulness, and also
of their courage, strength, and prowess, \\#Mic 5:7-9\\; likewise that
the Lord will remove from them their vain confidence, and all occasion
of it, and whatsoever illicit arts and practices were found among them;
and all idolatry, and the instruments of it, \\#Mic 5:10-14\\; and the
chapter is concluded with a threatening of vengeance to the Heathens,
\\#Mic 5:15\\.
