Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:1 - And I said: Hear, you heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel! Is it not for you to know justice?--

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:2 - you who hate the good and love the evil, who tear the skin from off my people, and their flesh from off their bones;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:3 - who eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them, and break their bones in pieces, and chop them up like meat in a kettle, like flesh in a caldron.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:12 - Therefore because of you Zion shall be plowed as a field; Jerusalem shall become a heap of ruins, and the mountain of the house a wooded height.
