Micah 3

CEB 1 But I said: Hear, leaders of Jacob, rulers of the house of Israel! Isn't it your job to know justice?— NIV 1 Then I said, “Listen, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel. Should you not embrace justice, CEB 2 you who hate good and love evil, who tear the skin off them, and the flesh off their bones, NIV 2 you who hate good and love evil; who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones; CEB 3 who devour the flesh of my people, tear off their skin, break their bones in pieces, and spread them out as if in a pot, like meat in a kettle. NIV 3 who eat my people’s flesh, strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces; who chop them up like meat for the pan, like flesh for the pot?” CEB 4 Then they will cry out to the LORD, but he won't answer them. He will hide his face from them at that time, because of their evil deeds. NIV 4 Then they will cry out to the LORD, but he will not answer them. At that time he will hide his face from them because of the evil they have done. CEB 5 The LORD proclaims concerning the prophets, those who lead my people astray, those who chew with their teeth and then proclaim "Peace!" but stir up war against the one who puts nothing in their mouths: NIV 5 This is what the LORD says: “As for the prophets who lead my people astray, they proclaim ‘peace’ if they have something to eat, but prepare to wage war against anyone who refuses to feed them. CEB 6 Therefore, it will become night for you, without vision, only darkness without divination! The sun will set on the prophets; the day will be dark upon them. NIV 6 Therefore night will come over you, without visions, and darkness, without divination. The sun will set for the prophets, and the day will go dark for them. CEB 7 Those seeing visions will be ashamed, and the diviners disgraced; they will all cover their upper lips, for there will be no answer from God. NIV 7 The seers will be ashamed and the diviners disgraced. They will all cover their faces because there is no answer from God.” CEB 8 But me! I am filled with power, with the spirit of the LORD, with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his wrongdoing and to Israel his sin! NIV 8 But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the LORD, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression, to Israel his sin. CEB 9 Hear this, leaders of the house of Jacob, rulers of the house of Israel, you who reject justice and make crooked all that is straight, NIV 9 Hear this, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right; CEB 10 who build Zion with bloodshed and Jerusalem with injustice! NIV 10 who build Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with wickedness. CEB 11 Her officials give justice for a bribe, and her priests teach for hire. Her prophets offer divination for silver, yet they rely on the LORD, saying, "Isn't the LORD in our midst? Evil won't come upon us!" NIV 11 Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they look for the LORD’s support and say, “Is not the LORD among us? No disaster will come upon us.” CEB 12 Therefore, because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become piles of rubble, and the temple mount will become an overgrown mound. NIV 12 Therefore because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets.
