The great place of Mount Zion (Mic 4:8-4:8)

“You!

O tower of the flock!

Hill of daughter Zion!

It shall come to you.

The former dominion

Shall come,

The kingdom

Of daughter Jerusalem.”

Yahweh, via Micah, praised the tower of the flock of Israel, the hill of daughter Zion.  Jerusalem had power before and will have it again.  The idea of a tower on a hill gathering all the flock of sheep of Israel indicated the importance of Jerusalem.
