Micah 2

GNTA 1 How terrible it will be for those who lie awake and plan evil! When morning comes, as soon as they have the chance, they do the evil they planned. 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. GNTA 2 When they want fields, they seize them; when they want houses, they take them. No one's family or property is safe. NIV 2 They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them. They defraud people of their homes, they rob them of their inheritance. GNTA 3 And so the Lord says, "I am planning to bring disaster on you, and you will not be able to escape it. You are going to find yourselves in trouble, and then you will not walk so proudly any more. 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. GNTA 4 When that time comes, people will use the story about you as an example of disaster, and they will sing this song of despair about your experience: We are completely ruined! The Lord has taken our land away And given it to those who took us captive." NIV 4 In that day people 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.’ ” GNTA 5 So then, when the time comes for the land to be given back to the Lord's people, there will be no share for any of you. NIV 5 Therefore you will have no one in the assembly of the LORDto divide the land by lot. GNTA 6 The people preach at me and say, "Don't preach at us. Don't preach about all that. God is not going to disgrace us. NIV 6 “Do not prophesy,” their prophets say. “Do not prophesy about these things; disgrace will not overtake us.” GNTA 7 Do you think the people of Israel are under a curse? Has the Lord lost his patience? Would he really do such things? Doesn't he speak kindly to those who do right?" NIV 7 You descendants of Jacob, should it be said, “Does the LORD become impatient? Does he do such things?” “Do not my words do good to the one whose ways are upright? GNTA 8 The Lord replies, "You attack my people like enemies. Men return from battle, thinking they are safe at home, but there you are, waiting to steal the coats off their backs. NIV 8 Lately my people have risen up like an enemy. You strip off the rich robe from those who pass by without a care, like men returning from battle. GNTA 9 You drive the women of my people out of the homes they love, and you have robbed their children of my blessings forever. NIV 9 You drive the women of my people from their pleasant homes. You take away my blessing from their children forever. GNTA 10 Get up and go; there is no safety here any more. Your sins have doomed this place to destruction. NIV 10 Get up, go away! For this is not your resting place, because it is defiled, it is ruined, beyond all remedy. GNTA 11 "These people want the kind of prophet who goes around full of lies and deceit and says, "I prophesy that wine and liquor will flow for you.' NIV 11 If a liar and deceiver comes and says, ‘I will prophesy for you plenty of wine and beer,’ that would be just the prophet for this people! GNTA 12 "But I will gather you together, all you people of Israel that are left. I will bring you together like sheep returning to the fold. Like a pasture full of sheep, your land will once again be filled with many people." NIV 12 “I will surely gather all of you, Jacob; I will surely bring together the remnant of Israel. I will bring them together like sheep in a pen, like a flock in its pasture; the place will throng with people. GNTA 13 God will open the way for them and lead them out of exile. They will break out of the city gates and go free. Their king, the Lord himself, will lead them out. NIV 13 The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the LORD at their head.”
