♖ BOZRAH, JORDAN, is an OPEN, RUINOUS CITY of DISTRESS—NOT SAFETY. The ANCIENT HEBREW MEANING of BOZRAH is IN CRY-OF-DISTRESS. The Phrase BOZRAH (Strong's H1223) in Micah 2:12 means IN CRY-OF-DISTRESS - Not SHEEP FOLD. The CITY of BOZRAH (BUSAYRA, in Jordan) means DISTRESS-CRY and is a CITY of DISTRESS - NOT SAFETY (Isa 34:6 & 63:1, Jer 48:24, 49:13 & 49:22, & Amo 1:12).
MICAH 2:12 STATES "FLOCK IN DISTRESS-CRY"—NOT "FLOCK SHEEPFOLD"
The Concordant Literal Version has almost got the translation correct—unlike most other Bible versions—
"Verily I will gather Jacob--all of you together. Verily I will convene the remnant of Israel. Together will I place them as a flock IN DISTRESS [H1223]…" Micah 2:12 (Concordant Literal Version)

♖ PETRA is KADESHBARNEA of the WILDERNESS - according to Josephus, Eusebius & Jerome. This is where moses struck the rock. The siq is the rock crack (Messiah = spiritual rock).
