Human Plans and God’s Plans

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:1 - Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:3 - Therefore, the LORD says: “I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:4 - In that day people will ridicule you; they will taunt you with this mournful song: ‘We are utterly ruined; my people’s possession is divided up. He takes it from me! He assigns our fields to traitors.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:9 - You drive the women of my people from their pleasant homes. You take away my blessing from their children forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:10 - Get up, go away! For this is not your resting place, because it is defiled, it is ruined, beyond all remedy.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:11 - If a liar and deceiver comes and says, ‘I will prophesy for you plenty of wine and beer,’ that would be just the prophet for this people!

Deliverance Promised

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:12 - “I will surely gather all of you, Jacob; I will surely bring together the remnant of Israel. I will bring them together like sheep in a pen, like a flock in its pasture; the place will throng with people.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:13 - The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the LORD at their head.”
