Tools specific to Mic 7:1

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:1

How miserable I am!
I feel like the fruit picker after the harvest
who can find nothing to eat.
Not a cluster of grapes or a single early fig
can be found to satisfy my hunger.

Tools specific to Mic 7:2

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:2

The godly people have all disappeared;
not one honest person is left on the earth.
They are all murderers,
setting traps even for their own brothers.

Tools specific to Mic 7:3

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:3

Both their hands are equally skilled at doing evil!
Officials and judges alike demand bribes.
The people with influence get what they want,
and together they scheme to twist justice.

Tools specific to Mic 7:4

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:4

Even the best of them is like a brier;
the most honest is as dangerous as a hedge of thorns.
But your judgment day is coming swiftly now.
Your time of punishment is here, a time of confusion.

Tools specific to Mic 7:5

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:5

Don’t trust anyone—
not your best friend or even your wife!

Tools specific to Mic 7:6

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:6

For the son despises his father.
The daughter defies her mother.
The daughter-in-law defies her mother-in-law.
Your enemies are right in your own household!

Tools specific to Mic 7:7

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:7

As for me, I look to the LORD for help.
I wait confidently for God to save me,
and my God will certainly hear me.

Tools specific to Mic 7:8

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:8

Do not gloat over me, my enemies!
For though I fall, I will rise again.
Though I sit in darkness,
the LORD will be my light.

Tools specific to Mic 7:9

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:9

I will be patient as the LORD punishes me,
for I have sinned against him.
But after that, he will take up my case
and give me justice for all I have suffered from my enemies.
The LORD will bring me into the light,
and I will see his righteousness.

Tools specific to Mic 7:10

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:10

Then my enemies will see that the LORD is on my side.
They will be ashamed that they taunted me, saying,
“So where is the LORD
that God of yours?”
With my own eyes I will see their downfall;
they will be trampled like mud in the streets.

Tools specific to Mic 7:11

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:11

In that day, Israel, your cities will be rebuilt,
and your borders will be extended.

Tools specific to Mic 7:12

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:12

People from many lands will come and honor you—
from Assyria all the way to the towns of Egypt,
from Egypt all the way to the Euphrates River,[fn]
and from distant seas and mountains.

Tools specific to Mic 7:13

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:13

But the land[fn] will become empty and desolate
because of the wickedness of those who live there.

Tools specific to Mic 7:14

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:14

O LORD, protect your people with your shepherd’s staff;
lead your flock, your special possession.
Though they live alone in a thicket
on the heights of Mount Carmel,[fn]
let them graze in the fertile pastures of Bashan and Gilead
as they did long ago.

Tools specific to Mic 7:15

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:15

“Yes,” says the LORD,
“I will do mighty miracles for you,
like those I did when I rescued you
from slavery in Egypt.”

Tools specific to Mic 7:16

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:16

All the nations of the world will stand amazed
at what the LORD will do for you.
They will be embarrassed
at their feeble power.
They will cover their mouths in silent awe,
deaf to everything around them.

Tools specific to Mic 7:17

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:17

Like snakes crawling from their holes,
they will come out to meet the LORD our God.
They will fear him greatly,
trembling in terror at his presence.

Tools specific to Mic 7:18

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:18

Where is another God like you,
who pardons the guilt of the remnant,
overlooking the sins of his special people?
You will not stay angry with your people forever,
because you delight in showing unfailing love.

Tools specific to Mic 7:19

Unchecked Copy Box Mic 7:19

Once again you will have compassion on us.
You will trample our sins under your feet
and throw them into the depths of the ocean!

Tools specific to Mic 7:20

You will show us your faithfulness and unfailing love
as you promised to our ancestors Abraham and Jacob long ago.
