Israel’s Moral Decline

Tools specific to Mic 7:1

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:1

How sad for me!

For I am like one who —

when the summer fruit has been gathered

after the gleaning of the grape harvest —

finds no grape cluster to eat,

no early fig, which I crave.

Tools specific to Mic 7:2

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:2

Faithful people have vanished from the land;

there is no one upright among the people.

All of them wait in ambush to shed blood;

they hunt each other with a net.

Tools specific to Mic 7:3

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:3

Both hands are good at accomplishing evil:

the official and the judge demand a bribe;

when the powerful man communicates his evil desire,

they plot it together.

Tools specific to Mic 7:4

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:4

The best of them is like a brier;

the most upright is worse than a hedge of thorns.

The day of your watchmen,

the day of your punishment, is coming;

at this time their panic is here.

Tools specific to Mic 7:5

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:5

Do not rely on a friend;

don’t trust in a close companion.

Seal your mouth

from the woman who lies in your arms.

Tools specific to Mic 7:6

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:6

Surely a son considers his father a fool,

a daughter opposes her mother,

and a daughter-in-law is against her mother-in-law;

a man’s enemies are the men of his own household.

Tools specific to Mic 7:7

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:7

But I will look to the Lord;

I will wait for the God of my salvation.

My God will hear me.

  
Zion’s Vindication

Tools specific to Mic 7:8

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:8

Do not rejoice over me, my enemy!

Though I have fallen, I will stand up;

though I sit in darkness,

the Lord will be my light.

Tools specific to Mic 7:9

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:9

Because I have sinned against him,

I must endure the Lord’s rage

until he champions my cause

and establishes justice for me.

He will bring me into the light;

I will see his salvation.

Tools specific to Mic 7:10

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:10

Then my enemy will see,

and she will be covered with shame,

the one who said to me,

“Where is the Lord your God? ”

My eyes will look at her in triumph;

at that time she will be trampled

like mud in the streets.

Tools specific to Mic 7:11

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:11

A day will come for rebuilding your walls;

on that day your boundary will be extended.

Tools specific to Mic 7:12

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:12

On that day people will come to you

from Assyria and the cities of Egypt,

even from Egypt to the Euphrates River

and from sea to sea

and mountain to mountain.

Tools specific to Mic 7:13

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:13

Then the earth will become a wasteland

because of its inhabitants

and as a result of their actions.

  
Micah’s Prayer Answered

Tools specific to Mic 7:14

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:14

Shepherd your people with your staff,

the flock that is your possession.

They live alone in a woodland

surrounded by pastures.

Let them graze in Bashan and Gilead

as in ancient times.

Tools specific to Mic 7:15

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:15

I will perform miracles for them

as in the days of your exodus

from the land of Egypt.

Tools specific to Mic 7:16

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:16

Nations will see and be ashamed

of all their power.

They will put their hands over their mouths,

and their ears will become deaf.

Tools specific to Mic 7:17

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:17

They will lick the dust like a snake;

they will come trembling out of their hiding places

like reptiles slithering on the ground.

They will tremble in the presence of the Lord our God;

they will stand in awe of you.

Tools specific to Mic 7:18

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:18

Who is a God like you,

forgiving iniquity and passing over rebellion

for the remnant of his inheritance?

He does not hold on to his anger forever

because he delights in faithful love.

Tools specific to Mic 7:19

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:19

He will again have compassion on us;

he will vanquish our iniquities.

You will cast all our sins

into the depths of the sea.

Tools specific to Mic 7:20

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:20

You will show loyalty to Jacob

and faithful love to Abraham,

as you swore to our fathers

from days long ago.
