Micah 2

NIRV 1 How terrible it will be for those who plan to harm others! How terrible for those who make evil plans before they even get out of bed! As soon as daylight comes, they carry them out. That's because they have the power to do it. 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. NIRV 2 If they want fields or houses, they take them. They cheat men out of their homes and property. 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. NIRV 3 So the LORD says to them, "I am planning to send trouble on you. You will not be able to save yourselves from it. You will not live so proudly anymore. It will be a time of trouble. 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. NIRV 4 At that time people will make fun of you. They will tease you by singing a song of sadness. They will pretend to be you and say, 'We are totally destroyed. Our enemies have divided up our land. The LORD has taken it away from us! He has given our fields to those who turned against us.' " 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.’ ” NIRV 5 So you won't even have anyone left in the LORD's community who can divide up the land for you. NIV 5 Therefore you will have no one in the assembly of the LORDto divide the land by lot. NIRV 6 "Don't prophesy," the people's prophets say. "Don't prophesy about bad things. Nothing shameful is going to happen to us." NIV 6 “Do not prophesy,” their prophets say. “Do not prophesy about these things; disgrace will not overtake us.” NIRV 7 People of Jacob, should others say, "The LORD isn't angry with us. He doesn't do things like that"? The LORD replies, "What I promise brings good things to those who lead honest lives. 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? NIRV 8 But lately my people have attacked one another as if they were enemies. You strip the rich robes off those who happen to pass by. They thought they were as safe as men returning from a battle they had won. 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. NIRV 9 You drive the women among my people out of their pleasant homes. You take my blessing away from their children forever. NIV 9 You drive the women of my people from their pleasant homes. You take away my blessing from their children forever. NIRV 10 Get up! Leave this land! It is no longer your resting place. You have made it 'unclean.' You have completely destroyed it. NIV 10 Get up, go away! For this is not your resting place, because it is defiled, it is ruined, beyond all remedy. NIRV 11 Suppose a prophet goes around telling lies. And he prophesies that you will have plenty of wine and beer. Then that kind of prophet would be just right for this nation! 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! NIRV 12 "People of Jacob, I will gather all of you. I will bring together you who are still left alive in Israel. I will gather you together like sheep in a pen. You will be like a flock in its grasslands. Your country will be filled with 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. NIRV 13 I will open the way for you to return. I will march in front of you. You will break through the city gates and go free. I am your King. I will pass through the gates in front of you. I will lead the way." 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.”
