Micah 2:1-5

RSV 1 Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil upon their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand. NIV 1 Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning's light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it. RSV 2 They covet fields, and seize them; and houses, and take them away; they oppress a man and his house, a man and his inheritance. NIV 2 They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them. They defraud a man of his home, a fellowman of his inheritance. RSV 3 Therefore thus says the LORD: Behold, against this family I am devising evil, from which you cannot remove your necks; and you shall not walk haughtily, for it will be an evil time. NIV 3 Therefore, the LORD says: "I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity. RSV 4 In that day they shall take up a taunt song against you, and wail with bitter lamentation, and say, "We are utterly ruined; he changes the portion of my people; how he removes it from me! Among our captors he divides our fields." NIV 4 In that day men will ridicule you; they will taunt you with this mournful song: 'We are utterly ruined; my people's possession is divided up. He takes it from me! He assigns our fields to traitors.' " RSV 5 Therefore you will have none to cast the line by lot in the assembly of the LORD. NIV 5 Therefore you will have no one in the assembly of the LORD to divide the land by lot.
