Destruction in Israel and Judah

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:1 - The word of the LORD which came to Micah of Moresheth in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and which he saw regarding Samaria and Jerusalem
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:2 - Hear, you peoples, all of [fn]you;
Listen carefully, earth and [fn]all it contains,
And may the Lord [fn]GOD be a witness against you,
The Lord from His holy temple
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:3 - For behold, the LORD is coming forth from His place.
He will come down and tread on the high places of the [fn]earth
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:4 - The mountains will melt under Him
And the valleys will be split,
Like wax before the fire,
Like water poured down a steep place
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:5 - All this is due to the [fn]wrongdoing of Jacob
And the sins of the house of Israel.
What is the [fn]wrongdoing of Jacob?
Is it not Samaria?
What is the high [fn]place of Judah?
Is it not Jerusalem
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:6 - For I will make Samaria a heap of ruins [fn]in the open country,
Planting places for a vineyard.
I will hurl her stones down into the valley,
And lay bare her foundations
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:7 - All of her idols will be crushed,
All of her earnings will be burned with fire,
And all of her images I will make desolate;
For she collected them from a prostitute’s earnings,
And to the earnings of a prostitute they will return
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:8 - Because of this I must mourn and wail,
I must go barefoot and naked;
I must do mourning like the jackals,
And a mourning like the ostriches
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:9 - For her wound is incurable,
For it has come to Judah;
It has reached the gate of my people,
Even to Jerusalem
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:10 - Do not tell it in Gath,
Do not weep at all.
At [fn]Beth-le-aphrah roll yourself in the dust in mourning
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:11 - [fn]Go on your way, inhabitant of [fn]Shaphir, in shameful nakedness.
The inhabitant of [fn]Zaanan does not [fn]escape.
The mourning of [fn]Beth-ezel: “He will take from you its [fn]support.”
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:12 - For the inhabitant of [fn]Maroth
[fn]Waits for something good,
Because a disaster has come down from the LORD
To the gate of Jerusalem
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:13 - Harness the chariot to the team of horses,
You inhabitant of Lachish
She was the beginning of sin
To the daughter of Zion
Because in you were found
The rebellious acts of Israel
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:14 - Therefore you will give parting gifts
In behalf of Moresheth-gath;
The houses of Achzib will become a [fn]deception
To the kings of Israel
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:15 - Moreover, I will bring on you
The one who takes possession,
You inhabitant of [fn]Mareshah.
The glory of Israel will enter Adullam
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:16 - Shave yourself bald, yes, cut off your hair,
Because of the children of your delight;
Extend your baldness like the eagle,
For they will go from you into exile
