Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:1 -

The word of the Lord that came to Micah the Moreshite ​— ​what he saw regarding Samaria and Jerusalem in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

Coming Judgment on Israel

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:2 -

Listen, all you peoples;

pay attention, earth[fn] and everyone in it!

The Lord God will be a witness against you,

the Lord, from his holy temple.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:3 -

Look, the Lord is leaving his place

and coming down to trample

the heights[fn] of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:4 -

The mountains will melt beneath him,

and the valleys will split apart,

like wax near a fire,

like water cascading down a mountainside.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:5 -

All this will happen because of Jacob’s rebellion

and the sins of the house of Israel.

What is the rebellion of Jacob?

Isn’t it Samaria?

And what is the high place of Judah?

Isn’t it Jerusalem?

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:6 -

Therefore, I will make Samaria

a heap of ruins in the countryside,

a planting area for a vineyard.

I will roll her stones into the valley

and expose her foundations.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:7 -

All her carved images will be smashed to pieces;

all her wages will be burned in the fire,

and I will destroy all her idols.

Since she collected the wages of a prostitute,

they will be used again for a prostitute.

Micah’s Lament

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:8 -

Because of this I will lament and wail;

I will walk barefoot and naked.

I will howl like the jackals

and mourn like ostriches.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:9 -

For her wound is incurable

and has reached even Judah;

it has approached my people’s city gate,

as far as Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:10 -

Don’t announce it in Gath,

don’t weep at all.

Roll in the dust in Beth-leaphrah.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:11 -

Depart in shameful nakedness,

you residents of Shaphir;

the residents of Zaanan will not come out.

Beth-ezel is lamenting;

its support[fn] is taken from you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:12 -

Though the residents of Maroth

anxiously wait for something good,

disaster has come from the Lord

to the gate of Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:13 -

Harness the horses to the chariot,

you residents of Lachish.

This was the beginning of sin for Daughter Zion

because Israel’s acts of rebellion can be traced to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:14 -

Therefore, send farewell gifts to Moresheth-gath;

the houses of Achzib are a deception

to the kings of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:15 -

I will again bring a conqueror

against you who live in Mareshah.

The nobility[fn] of Israel will come to Adullam.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:16 -

Shave yourselves bald and cut off your hair

in sorrow for your precious children;

make yourselves as bald as an eagle,

for they have been taken from you into exile.
