Micah 2 (Third Millennium Bible)

View In My Bible
1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! When the morning is light they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. 2 They covet fields and take them by violence, and houses, and take them away. So they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage. 3 Therefore thus saith the LORD: "Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks, neither shall ye go haughtily; for this time is evil. 4 In that day shall one take up a parable against you, and lament with a doleful lamentation and say, `We are utterly despoiled; He hath changed the portion of my people. How hath He removed it from me! Turning away, He hath divided our fields.'" 5 Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot in the congregation of the LORD. 6 "Prophesy ye not," say they to them that prophesy: "They shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not suffer shame." 7 Oh thou that art named the house of Jacob: Is the Spirit of the LORD straitened? Are these His doings? Do not My words do good to him that walketh uprightly? 8 "Even of late My people have risen up as an enemy; ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by trustingly as men returning from war. 9 The women of My people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away My glory for ever. 10 Arise ye and depart, for this is not your rest; because it is polluted it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction. 11 If a man walking in the spirit of falsehood lieth, saying, `I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink,' he shall even be the prophet of this people! 12 "I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel. I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold; and they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. 13 The Breaker has come up before them; they have broken forth and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it; and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD at the head of them."
