    Default Micah

    Micah 5:2 (KJV)

    But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

    * What does the underlined phrase mean
