A Ruler From Bethlehem

5 So shall this one be Prosperity. As for Assyria - when he shall enter our land, and when he shall tread down in our palaces, then will we raise up against him, seven shepherds, and eight princes of mankind. 6 Then shall they shepherd the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof, - So shall he deliver from Assyria, when he shall enter our land, and when he shall tread down within our bounds. 7 And, the remnant of Jacob, shall be, in the midst of many peoples, as dew from Yahweh, as myriad drops on plants, - which tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of Adam.
