Michah Four: Torah

This chapter contains several well-known, iconic sayings. It’s where we have the source for swords being turned into plowshares, nations not lifting up sword against nations, and one verse that brings up many memories for me. “And many nations shall go, and they shall say, ‘Come, let us go up to the Lord’s mount and to the house of the God of Jacob, and let Him teach us of His ways, and we will go in His paths,’ for out of Zion shall the Torah come forth, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem (Micah 4:2).” The ending part of this verse is one that is sung in every Shabbat service I’ve ever attended. It’s one of my mom’s favorite verses, and seeing it in its context is lovely. It’s always great to see the original home of the pieces of Torah that I know so well, and feel so personally connected to.
