The Book of Micah

Chapter 2

1

Woe to them that devise6 iniquity, and work6 evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise4 it, because it is in the power of their hand.

2

And they covet1 fields, and take [them] by violence;1 and houses, and take [them] away:1 so they oppress1 a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

3

Therefore thus saith1 the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise6 an evil, from which ye shall not remove55 your necks; neither shall ye go4 haughtily: for this time [is] evil.

4

In that day shall [one] take up4 a parable against you, and lament1 with a doleful lamentation, [and] say,1 We be utterly2 spoiled:8 he hath changed55 the portion of my people: how hath he removed55 [it] from me! turning away32 he hath divided17 our fields.

5

Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast56 a cord by lot in the congregation of the LORD.

6

Prophesy55 ye not, [say they to them that] prophesy:55 they shall not prophesy55 to them, [that] they shall not take4 shame.

7

O [thou that art] named7 the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened?1 [are] these his doings? do not my words do good55 to him that walketh6 uprightly?

8

Even of late my people is risen up34 as an enemy:6 ye pull off55 the robe with the garment from them that pass by6 securely as men averse7 from war.

9

The women of my people have ye cast out17 from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away4 my glory for ever.

10

Arise3 ye, and depart;3 for this [is] not [your] rest: because it is polluted,2 it shall destroy17 [you], even with a sore12 destruction.

11

If a man walking6 in the spirit and falsehood do lie,14 [saying], I will prophesy55 unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet56 of this people.

12

I will surely2 assemble,4 O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely15 gather17 the remnant of Israel; I will put4 them together as the sheep of Bozrah, 1224 as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise55 by reason of [the multitude of] men.

13

The breaker6 is come up1 before them: they have broken up,1 and have passed through4 the gate, and are gone out4 by it: and their king shall pass4 before them, and the LORD on the head of them.
