Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:1 - The word of the LORD that came to Micah of Moresheth during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah—the vision he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:2 - Hear, you peoples, all of you, listen, earth and all who live in it, that the Sovereign LORD may bear witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:3 - Look! The LORD is coming from his dwelling place; he comes down and treads on the heights of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:4 - The mountains melt beneath him and the valleys split apart, like wax before the fire, like water rushing down a slope.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:5 - All this is because of Jacob’s transgression, because of the sins of the people of Israel. What is Jacob’s transgression? Is it not Samaria? What is Judah’s high place? Is it not Jerusalem?

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:6 - “Therefore I will make Samaria a heap of rubble, a place for planting vineyards. I will pour her stones into the valley and lay bare her foundations.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:7 - All her idols will be broken to pieces; all her temple gifts will be burned with fire; I will destroy all her images. Since she gathered her gifts from the wages of prostitutes, as the wages of prostitutes they will again be used.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:8 - Because of this I will weep and wail; I will go about barefoot and naked. I will howl like a jackal and moan like an owl.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:9 - For Samaria’s plague is incurable; it has spread to Judah. It has reached the very gate of my people, even to Jerusalem itself.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:10 - Tell it not in Gath[fn]; weep not at all. In Beth Ophrah[fn] roll in the dust.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:11 - Pass by naked and in shame, you who live in Shaphir.[fn] Those who live in Zaanan[fn] will not come out. Beth Ezel is in mourning; it no longer protects you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:12 - Those who live in Maroth[fn] writhe in pain, waiting for relief, because disaster has come from the LORD, even to the gate of Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:13 - You who live in Lachish, harness fast horses to the chariot. You are where the sin of Daughter Zion began, for the transgressions of Israel were found in you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:14 - Therefore you will give parting gifts to Moresheth Gath. The town of Akzib[fn] will prove deceptive to the kings of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:15 - I will bring a conqueror against you who live in Mareshah.[fn] The nobles of Israel will flee to Adullam.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 1:16 - Shave your head in mourning for the children in whom you delight; make yourself as bald as the vulture, for they will go from you into exile.
