1 H1697 The word H3068 of Jehovah H4318 that came to Micah H4183 the Morashtite H3117 in the days H3147 of Jotham, H271 Ahaz, H3169 and Hezekiah, H4428 kings H3063 of Judah, H2372 which he saw H8111 concerning Samaria H3389 and Jerusalem.
2 H8085 Hear, H5971 ye peoples, H7181 all of you: hearken, H776 O earth, H4393 and all that therein H136 is: and let the Lord H3069 Jehovah H5707 be witness H136 against you, the Lord H6944 from his holy H1964 temple.
3 H3068 For, behold, Jehovah H3318 cometh forth H4725 out of his place, H3381 and will come down, H1869 and tread H1116 upon the high places H776 of the earth.
4 H2022 And the mountains H4549 shall be melted H6010 under him, and the valleys H1234 shall be cleft, H1749 as wax H6440 before H784 the fire, H4325 as waters H5064 that are poured H4174 down a steep place.
5 H6588 For the transgression H3290 of Jacob H2403 is all this, and for the sins H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel. H6588 What is the transgression H3290 of Jacob? H8111 is it not Samaria? H1116 and what are the high places H3063 of Judah? H3389 are they not Jerusalem?
6 H7760 Therefore I will make H8111 Samaria H5856 as a heap H7704 of the field, H3754 and as places for planting vineyards; H5064 and I will pour down H68 the stones H1516 thereof into the valley, H1540 and I will uncover H3247 the foundations thereof.
7 H6456 And all her graven images H3807 shall be beaten to pieces, H868 and all her hires H8313 shall be burned H784 with fire, H6091 and all her idols H7760 will I lay H8077 desolate; H868 for of the hire H2181 of a harlot H6908 hath she gathered H868 them, and unto the hire H2181 of a harlot H7725 shall they return.
8 H5594 For this will I lament H5594 and wail; H3212 I will go H7758 stripped H6174 and naked; H6213 I will make H4553 a wailing H8577 like the jackals, H60 and a lamentation H1323 like the ostriches.
9 H4347 For her wounds H605 are incurable; H935 for it is come H3063 even unto Judah; H5060 it reacheth H8179 unto the gate H5971 of my people, H3389 even to Jerusalem.
10 H5046 Tell H1661 it not in Gath, H1058 weep H1058 not at all: H1036 at Beth-le-aphrah H6428 have I rolled H6083 myself in the dust.
11 H5674 Pass away, H3427 O inhabitant H8208 of Shaphir, H6181 in nakedness H1322 and shame: H3427 the inhabitant H6630 of Zaanan H3318 is not come forth; H4553 the wailing H1018 of Beth-ezel H3947 shall take H5979 from you the stay thereof.
12 H3427 For the inhabitant H4796 of Maroth H2342 waiteth anxiously H2896 for good, H7451 because evil H3381 is come down H3068 from Jehovah H8179 unto the gate H3389 of Jerusalem.
13 H7573 Bind H4818 the chariot H7409 to the swift steed, H3427 O inhabitant H3923 of Lachish: H7225 she was the beginning H2403 of sin H1323 to the daughter H6726 of Zion; H6588 for the transgressions H3478 of Israel H4672 were found in thee.
14 H5414 Therefore shalt thou give H7964 a parting gift H4182 to Moresheth-gath: H1004 the houses H392 of Achzib H391 shall be a deceitful thing H4428 unto the kings H3478 of Israel.
15 H935 I will yet bring H3427 unto thee, O inhabitant H4762 of Mareshah, H3423 him H3519 that shall possess thee: the glory H3478 of Israel H935 shall come H5725 even unto Adullam.
