The wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 that cameH1961 to MicahH4318 the MorasthiteH4183 in the daysH3117 of Jotham,H3147 Ahaz,H271 and Hezekiah,H2396 kingsH4428 of Judah,H3063 whichH834 he sawH2372 concerningH5921 SamariaH8111 and Jerusalem.H3389
Hear,H8085 allH3605 you people;H5971 listen,H7181 O earth,H776 and allH4393 that thereinH4393 is: and let the LordH136 GODH3069 be witnessH5707 against you, the LORDH136 from his holyH6944 temple.H1964
For, behold,H2009 the LORDH3068 comesH3318 forthH3318 out of his place,H4725 and will comeH3381 down,H3381 and treadH1869 on the highH1116 places of the earth.H776
And the mountainsH2022 shall be moltenH4549 underH8478 him, and the valleysH6010 shall be cleft,H1234 as waxH1749 beforeH6440 the fire,H784 and as the watersH4325 that are pouredH5064 down a steepH4174 place.
For the transgressionH6588 of JacobH3290 is allH3605 this,H2063 and for the sinsH2403 of the houseH1004 of Israel.H3478 WhatH4310 is the transgressionH6588 of Jacob?H3290 is it not Samaria?H8111 and whatH4310 are the highH1116 places of Judah?H3063 are they not Jerusalem?H3389
Therefore I will makeH7760 SamariaH8111 as an heapH5856 of the field,H7704 and as plantingsH4302 of a vineyard:H3754 and I will pourH5064 down the stonesH68 thereof into the valley,H1516 and I will discoverH1540 the foundationsH3247 thereof.
And allH3605 the gravenH6456 images thereof shall be beatenH3807 to pieces, and allH3605 the hiresH868 thereof shall be burnedH8313 with the fire,H784 and allH3605 the idolsH6091 thereof will I layH7760 desolate:H8077 for she gatheredH6908 it of the hireH868 of an harlot,H2181 and they shall returnH7725 to the hireH868 of an harlot.H2181
Therefore I will wailH5594 and howl,H3213 I will goH3212 strippedH7758 and naked:H6174 I will makeH6213 a wailingH4553 like the dragons,H8577 and mourningH60 as the owls.H1323 H3284
For her woundH4347 is incurable;H605 for it is comeH935 to Judah;H3063 he is comeH5060 to the gateH8179 of my people,H5971 even to Jerusalem.H3389
DeclareH5046 you it not at Gath,H1661 weepH1058 you not at all: in the houseH1035 of AphrahH1036 rollH6428 yourself in the dust.H6083
PassH5674 you away, you inhabitantH3427 of Saphir,H8208 having your shameH1322 naked:H6181 the inhabitantH3427 of ZaananH6630 cameH3318 not forthH3318 in the mourningH4553 of Bethezel;H1018 he shall receiveH3947 of you his standing.H5979
For the inhabitantH3427 of MarothH4796 waitedH2342 carefullyH2470 for good:H2896 but evilH7451 cameH3381 downH3381 from the LORDH3068 to the gateH8179 of Jerusalem.H3389
O you inhabitantH3427 of Lachish,H3923 bindH7573 the chariotH4818 to the swiftH7409 beast:H7409 she is the beginningH7225 of the sinH2403 to the daughterH1323 of Zion:H6726 for the transgressionsH6588 of IsraelH3478 were foundH4672 in you.
ThereforeH3651 shall you giveH5414 presentsH7964 to Moreshethgath:H4182 the housesH1004 of AchzibH392 shall be a lieH391 to the kingsH4428 of Israel.H3478
YetH5750 will I bringH935 an heirH3423 to you, O inhabitantH3427 of Mareshah:H4762 he shall comeH935 to AdullamH5725 the gloryH3519 of Israel.H3478
Make you bald,H7139 and pollH1494 you for your delicateH8588 children;H1121 enlargeH7337 your baldnessH7144 as the eagle;H5404 for they are gone into captivityH1540 from you.
