Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:1 - This is the prophetic message that the LORD gave to Micah of Moresheth. He delivered this message during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. The prophecies pertain to Samaria and Jerusalem.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:2 - Listen, all you nations! Pay attention, all inhabitants of earth! The sovereign LORD will testify against you; the LORD will accuse you from his majestic palace.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:3 - Look, the LORD is coming out of his dwelling place! He will descend and march on the earth's mountaintops!
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:4 - The mountains will disintegrate beneath him, and the valleys will be split in two. The mountains will melt like wax in a fire, the rocks will slide down like water cascading down a steep slope.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:5 - All this is because of Jacob's rebellion and the sins of the nation of Israel. How has Jacob rebelled, you ask? Samaria epitomizes their rebellion! Where are Judah's pagan worship centers, you ask? They are right in Jerusalem!
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:6 - "I will turn Samaria into a heap of ruins in an open field - vineyards will be planted there! I will tumble the rubble of her stone walls down into the valley, and tear down her fortifications to their foundations.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:7 - All her carved idols will be smashed to pieces; all her metal cult statues will be destroyed by fire. I will make a waste heap of all her images. Since she gathered the metal as a prostitute collects her wages, the idols will become a prostitute's wages again."
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:8 - For this reason I will mourn and wail; I will walk around barefoot and without my outer garments. I will howl like a wild dog, and screech like an owl.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:9 - For Samaria's disease is incurable. It has infected Judah; it has spread to the leadership of my people and has even contaminated Jerusalem!
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:10 - Don't spread the news in Gath! Don't shed even a single tear! In Beth Leaphrah sit in the dust!
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:11 - Residents of Shaphir, pass by in nakedness and humiliation! The residents of Zaanan can't leave their city. Beth Ezel mourns, "He takes from you what he desires."
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:12 - Indeed, the residents of Maroth hope for something good to happen, though the LORD has sent disaster against the city of Jerusalem.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:13 - Residents of Lachish, hitch the horses to the chariots! You influenced Daughter Zion to sin, for Israel's rebellious deeds can be traced back to you!
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:14 - Therefore you will have to say farewell to Moresheth Gath. The residents of Achzib will be as disappointing as a dried up well to the kings of Israel.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:15 - Residents of Mareshah, a conqueror will attack you, the leaders of Israel shall flee to Adullam.
Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:16 - Shave your heads bald as you mourn for the children you love; shave your foreheads as bald as an eagle, for they are taken from you into exile.
