Why is Jesus described as having come into existence BEFORE being born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2)?

"O Bethlehem ..., from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose ORIGIN is from of old, from ancient days" - RSV, cf. JB, NEB, REB, NAB, NIV, AT, Mo, NRSV, NJB, Byington, and Young's.) (Origin: "a coming into existence" - Webster's New World Dictionary, 1973.) show more "O Bethlehem ..., from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose ORIGIN is from of old, from ancient days" - RSV, cf. JB, NEB, REB, NAB, NIV, AT, Mo, NRSV, NJB, Byington, and Young's.)

(Origin: "a coming into existence" - Webster's New World Dictionary, 1973.)
