The Prophet Acknowledges

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:1 - Woe is me! For I am
Like the fruit pickers, like the grape gatherers.
There is not a cluster of grapes to eat,
Or a first-ripe fig which [fn]I crave.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:2 - The [fn]godly person has perished from the land,
And there is no upright person among men.
All of them lie in wait for bloodshed;
Each of them hunts the other with a net.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:3 - Concerning evil, both hands do it well.
The prince asks, also the judge, for a bribe,
And a great man speaks the desire of his soul;
So they weave it together.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:4 - The best of them is like a briar,
The most upright like a thorn hedge.
The day when you post your watchmen,
Your punishment will come.
Then their confusion will occur.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:5 - Do not trust in a neighbor;
Do not have confidence in a friend.
From her who lies in your bosom
Guard [fn]your lips.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:6 - For son treats father contemptuously,
Daughter rises up against her mother,
Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
A man’s enemies are the men of his own household.

God Is the Source of Salvation and Light

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:7 - But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD;
I will wait for the God of my salvation.
My God will hear me.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:8 - Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy.
Though I fall I will rise;
Though I dwell in darkness, the LORD is a light for me.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:9 - I will bear the indignation of the LORD
Because I have sinned against Him,
Until He pleads my case and executes justice for me.
He will bring me out to the light,
And I will see His [fn]righteousness.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:10 - Then my enemy will see,
And shame will cover her who said to me,
“Where is the LORD your God?”
My eyes will look on her;
[fn]At that time she will [fn]be trampled down
Like mire of the streets.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:11 - It will be a day for building your walls.
On that day will your boundary be extended.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:12 - It will be a day when [fn]they will come to you
From Assyria and the cities of Egypt,
From Egypt even to the [fn]Euphrates,
Even from sea to sea and mountain to mountain.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:13 - And the earth will become desolate because of her inhabitants,
On account of the fruit of their deeds.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:14 - Shepherd Your people with Your scepter,
The flock of Your [fn]possession
Which dwells by itself in the woodland,
In the midst of [fn]a fruitful field.
Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead
As in the days of old.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:15 - “As in the days when you came out from the land of Egypt,
I will show [fn]you miracles.”
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:16 - Nations will see and be ashamed
Of all their might.
They will put their hand on their mouth,
Their ears will be deaf.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:17 - They will lick the dust like a serpent,
Like reptiles of the earth.
They will come trembling out of their [fn]fortresses;
To the LORD our God they will come in dread
And they will be afraid before You.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:18 - Who is a God like You, who pardons iniquity
And passes over the rebellious act of the remnant of His [fn]possession?
He does not retain His anger forever,
Because He delights in [fn]unchanging love.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:19 - He will again have compassion on us;
He will tread our iniquities under foot.
Yes, You will cast all [fn]their sins
Into the depths of the sea.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 7:20 - You will give [fn]truth to Jacob
And [fn]unchanging love to Abraham,
Which You swore to our forefathers
From the days of old.
