Old Testament

Micah 5:2

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
Yet out of you shall come forth to Me
The One to be Ruler in Israel,
Whose goings forth are from of old,
From everlasting.”



“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for Me One who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

“But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah; from you One shall come forth for Me who is to be Ruler in Israel, His goings forth, appearances are from long ago, from ancient days.”

2 Chronicles 31:20-21

20 Thus Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and true before the Lord his God. 21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart. So he prospered.



In everything that King Hezekiah undertook in the service of God’s temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly.
And so he prospered.

Every work which King Hezekiah began in the service of the house of God in keeping with the law and the commandment, seeking and inquiring of his God and longing for Him, he did with all his heart and prospered.
