Everyone shall sit under his vine and no one shall make them afraid

 1 But in the end of days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established as the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow unto it.
 א  וְהָיָה בְּאַחֲרִית הַיָּמִים, יִהְיֶה הַר בֵּית-יְהוָה נָכוֹן בְּרֹאשׁ הֶהָרִים, וְנִשָּׂא הוּא, מִגְּבָעוֹת; וְנָהֲרוּ עָלָיו, עַמִּים.

 2 And many nations shall go and say: 'Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths'; for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
 ב  וְהָלְכוּ גּוֹיִם רַבִּים, וְאָמְרוּ לְכוּ וְנַעֲלֶה אֶל-הַר-יְהוָה וְאֶל-בֵּית אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב, וְיוֹרֵנוּ מִדְּרָכָיו, וְנֵלְכָה בְּאֹרְחֹתָיו:  כִּי מִצִּיּוֹן תֵּצֵא תוֹרָה, וּדְבַר-יְהוָה מִירוּשָׁלִָם.

 3 And He shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide concerning mighty nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
 ג  וְשָׁפַט, בֵּין עַמִּים רַבִּים, וְהוֹכִיחַ לְגוֹיִם עֲצֻמִים, עַד-רָחוֹק; וְכִתְּתוּ חַרְבֹתֵיהֶם לְאִתִּים, וַחֲנִיתֹתֵיהֶם לְמַזְמֵרוֹת--לֹא-יִשְׂאוּ גּוֹי אֶל-גּוֹי חֶרֶב, וְלֹא-יִלְמְדוּן עוֹד מִלְחָמָה.

 4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig-tree;

and none shall make them afraid;   for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken.
 ד  וְיָשְׁבוּ, אִישׁ תַּחַת גַּפְנוֹ וְתַחַת תְּאֵנָתוֹ--וְאֵין מַחֲרִיד:  כִּי-פִי יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת, דִּבֵּר.
Micah 4:1-4

The new kitten, only survivor of the mom's litter, chose to be born and to live in the little space under my little house.
Mother and kitty are for Camera Critters.
Enlarge the second picture to see the baby's expression!

Beautiful prophesy of the prophet Micah!
The kitten is adorable!
I have a question!We have almost reached the end of round 12 of ABC Wednesday. I found a subject for A of round 13.I mention in my post the bloggers I met and you are one of them. I show the photos of the bloggers and myself. I hope you don't mind. I'll remove them when you don't like the idea of being in my post. I hope however that's okay.

Such a sweet little kitten. I hope this one survives.

Oh Kitty! Safe under his vine.

VP said...

It wasn't easy to get the expression of the baby in all that black, but it is really funny!

Sara said...

It makes me sad he's the only survivor, but now he's got all his mother's attention. Sweet little face.

Sweet kitty... Sweet story.... Lovely Scripture.... The kitty knew which house to take refuge under! How are the other sweet kitties in the Moshav?? Miss them; miss you.
