as slaves in a foreign land for 400 years. 14 But I will punish the nation
that enslaves them, and at the end they will come away with great wealth.

to it. 3 Many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain
of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways,
so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word
of the LORD from Jerusalem. NIV (Isa 2:3 For in
those days the world will be ruled from Jerusalem.
Mic 4:1 But in the last days Mount Zion will be the

the Temple of the God of Israel; he will tell us what to do, and we will
do it." For in those days the whole world will be ruled by the Lord from
Jerusalem! He will issue his laws and announce his decrees from there.
