1 H1697 The word H3068 of Yahweh 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 you peoples, H7181 all of you. Listen, H776 O earth, H4393 and all that is therein: H136 and let the Lord H3069 Yahweh H5707 be witness H136 against you, the Lord H6944 from his holy H1964 temple.
3 H3068 For, behold, Yahweh H3318 comes forth H4725 out of his place, H3381 and will come down H1869 and tread H1116 on the high places H776 of the earth.
4 H2022 The mountains H4549 melt H6010 under him, and the valleys H1234 split H1749 apart, like wax H6440 before H784 the fire, H4325 like waters H5064 that are poured H4174 down a steep place.
5 H6588 "All this is for the disobedience H3290 of Jacob, H2403 and for the sins H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel. H6588 What is the disobedience H3290 of Jacob? H8111 Isn't it Samaria? H1116 And what are the high places H3063 of Judah? H3389 Aren't they Jerusalem?
6 H7760 Therefore I will make H8111 Samaria H5856 like a rubble heap H7704 of the field, H3754 like places for planting vineyards; H5064 and I will pour down H68 its stones H1516 into the valley, H1540 and I will uncover H3247 its foundations.
7 H6456 All her idols H3807 will be beaten to pieces, H868 and all her temple gifts H8313 will be burned H784 with fire, H6091 and all her images H7760 I will H8077 destroy; H868 for of the hire H2181 of a prostitute H6908 has she gathered H868 them, and to the hire H2181 of a prostitute H7725 shall they return."
8 H5594 For this I will lament H3213 and wail; H3212 I will go H7758 stripped H6174 and naked; H6213 I will H4553 howl H8577 like the jackals, H60 and moan H1323 like the daughters of owls.
9 H4347 For her wounds H605 are incurable; H935 for it has come H3063 even to Judah. H5060 It reaches H8179 to the gate H5971 of my people, H3389 even to Jerusalem.
10 H5046 Don't tell H1661 it in Gath. H1058 Don't weep H1058 at all. H1036 At Beth Ophrah H6428 I have rolled H6083 myself in the dust.
11 H5674 Pass on, H3427 inhabitant H8208 of Shaphir, H6181 in nakedness H1322 and shame. H3427 The inhabitant H6630 of Zaanan H3318 won't come out. H4553 The wailing H1018 of Beth Ezel H3947 will take H5979 from you his protection.
12 H3427 For the inhabitant H4796 of Maroth H2342 waits anxiously H2896 for good, H7451 because evil H3381 has come down H3068 from Yahweh H8179 to the gate H3389 of Jerusalem.
13 H7573 Harness H4818 the chariot H7409 to the swift steed, H3427 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 you.
14 H5414 Therefore you will give H7964 a parting gift H4182 to Moresheth Gath. H1004 The houses H392 of Achzib H391 will be a deceitful thing H4428 to the kings H3478 of Israel.
15 H935 I will yet bring H3427 to you, inhabitant H4762 of Mareshah. H3423 He H3519 who is the glory H3478 of Israel H935 will come H5725 to Adullam.
