The word of the LORD which came to Micah of Moresheth in the days of Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.
Therefore thus says the LORD , "Behold, I am planning against this family a calamity From which you cannot remove your necks; And you will not walk haughtily, For it will be an evil time.
Who eat the flesh of my people, Strip off their skin from them, Break their bones And chop them up as for the pot And as meat in a kettle."
Then they will cry out to the LORD , But He will not answer them. Instead, He will hide His face from them at that time Because they have practiced evil deeds.
Thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who lead my people astray; When they have something to bite with their teeth, They cry, "Peace," But against him who puts nothing in their mouths They declare holy war.
"In that day," declares the LORD , "I will assemble the lame And gather the outcasts, Even those whom I have afflicted.
Then the remnant of Jacob Will be among many peoples Like dew from the LORD , Like showers on vegetation Which do not wait for man Or delay for the sons of men.
The remnant of Jacob Will be among the nations, Among many peoples Like a lion among the beasts of the forest, Like a young lion among flocks of sheep, Which, if he passes through, Tramples down and tears, And there is none to rescue.
"And I will execute vengeance in anger and wrath On the nations which have not obeyed."
Hear now what the LORD is saying, "Arise, plead your case before the mountains, And let the hills hear your voice.
"You will eat, but you will not be satisfied, And your vileness will be in your midst. You will try to remove for safekeeping, But you will not preserve anything, And what you do preserve I will give to the sword.
I will bear the indignation of the LORD Because I have sinned against Him, Until He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me out to the light, And I will see His righteousness.
You will give truth to Jacob And unchanging love to Abraham, Which You swore to our forefathers From the days of old.
