33_MIC_01_01 the word of the LORD that came to Micah the Morasthite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, [ And] Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria And Jerusalem.
33_MIC_01_02 hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, And all that therein Is: And let the LORD God be witness against you, the LORD from his holy temple.
33_MIC_01_03 for, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, And will come down, And tread upon the high places of the earth.
33_MIC_01_04 And the mountains shall be molten under him, And the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, [ And] as the waters [ that are] poured down A steep place.
33_MIC_01_05 for the transgression of Jacob [ Is] all this, And for the sins of the house of Israel. what [ Is] the transgression of Jacob? [ Is it] not Samaria? And what [ are] the high places of Judah? [ are they] not Jerusalem?
33_MIC_01_06 therefore I will make Samaria as an heap of the field, [ And] as plantings of A vineyard: And I will Pour down the stones thereof into the valley, And I will discover the foundations thereof.
33_MIC_01_07 And all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, And all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, And all the idols thereof will I lay desolate: for she gathered [ it] of the hire of an harlot, And they shall Return to the hire of an harlot.
33_MIC_01_08 therefore I will wail And howl, I will go stripped And naked: I will make A wailing like the dragons, And mourning as the owls.
33_MIC_01_09 for her wound [ Is] incurable; for it Is come unto Judah; he Is come unto the gate of my people, [ even] to Jerusalem.
33_MIC_01_10 declare ye [ it] not at Gath, weep ye not at all: in the house of Aphrah roll thyself in the dust.
33_MIC_01_11 pass ye away, thou inhabitant of Saphir, having thy shame naked: the inhabitant of Zaanan came not forth in the mourning of Bethezel; he shall receive of you his standing.
33_MIC_01_12 for the inhabitant of Maroth waited carefully for good: but evil came down from the LORD unto the gate of Jerusalem.
33_MIC_01_13 O thou inhabitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift beast: she [ Is] the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee.
33_MIC_01_14 therefore shalt thou give presents to Moreshethgath: the houses of Achzib [ shall be] A Lie to the kings of Israel.
33_MIC_01_15 yet will I bring an heir unto thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah: he shall come unto Adullam the glory of Israel.
33_MIC_01_16 make thee bald, And poll thee for thy delicate children; enlarge thy Baldness as the eagle; for they are gone into captivity from thee.
