Micah 6 (Hebrew Names Version)

View In My Bible
1 Listen now to what the LORD says: "Arise, plead your case before the mountains, And let the hills hear what you have to say. 2 Hear, you mountains, the LORD's controversy, And you enduring foundations of the eretz; For the LORD has a controversy with his people, And he will contend with Yisra'el. 3 My people, what have I done to you? How have I burdened you? Answer me! 4 For I brought you up out of the land of Mitzrayim, And redeemed you out of the house of bondage. I sent before you Moshe, Aharon, and Miryam. 5 My people, remember now what Balak king of Mo'av devised, And what Bil`am the son of Be'or answered him from Shittim to Gilgal, That you may know the righteous acts of the LORD." 6 How shall I come before the LORD, And bow myself before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, With calves a year old? 7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams? With tens of thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my disobedience? The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? 8 He has shown you, O man, what is good. What does the LORD require of you, but to act justly, To love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? 9 The LORD's voice calls to the city, And wisdom sees your name: "Listen to the rod, And he who appointed it. 10 Are there yet treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, And a short efah that is accursed? 11 Shall I be pure with dishonest scales, And with a bag of deceitful weights? 12 Her rich men are full of violence, Her inhabitants speak lies, And their tongue is deceitful in their speech. 13 Therefore I also have struck you with a grievous wound. I have made you desolate because of your sins. 14 You shall eat, but not be satisfied. Your humiliation will be in your midst. You will store up, but not save; And that which you save I will give up to the sword. 15 You will sow, but won't reap. You will tread the olives, but won't anoint yourself with oil; And crush grapes, but won't drink the wine. 16 For the statutes of `Omri are kept, And all the works of the house of Ach'av. You walk in their counsels, That I may make you a ruin, And her inhabitants a hissing; And you will bear the reproach of my people."
