1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H4318 that came to Micah H4183 the Morasthite H3117 in the days H3147 of Jotham H271 , Ahaz H3169 , and Hezekiah H4428 , kings H3063 of Judah H2372 [H8804] , which he saw H8111 concerning Samaria H3389 and Jerusalem.
2 H8085 [H8798] Hear H5971 , all ye people H7181 [H8685] ; hearken H776 , O earth H4393 , and all that H136 is in it: and let the Lord H3069 GOD H5707 be witness H136 against you, the Lord H6944 from his holy H1964 temple.
3 H3068 For, behold, the LORD H3318 [H8802] cometh forth H4725 from his place H3381 [H8804] , and will come down H1869 [H8804] , and tread H1116 upon the high places H776 of the earth.
4 H2022 And the mountains H4549 [H8738] shall be melted H6010 under him, and the valleys H1234 [H8691] shall be cleft H1749 , as wax H6440 before H784 the fire H4325 , and as the waters H5064 [H8716] 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 [H8804] Therefore I will make H8111 Samaria H5856 as an heap H7704 of the field H4302 , and as plantings H3754 of a vineyard H5064 [H8689] : and I will pour down H68 her stones H1516 into the valley H1540 [H8762] , and I will lay bare H3247 her foundations.
7 H6456 And all her graven images H3807 [H8714] shall be beaten to pieces H868 , and all her hires H8313 [H8735] shall be burned H784 with the fire H6091 , and all her idols H7760 [H8799] will I lay H8077 desolate H6908 [H8765] : for she gathered H868 it from the hire H2181 [H8802] of an harlot H7725 [H8799] , and they shall return H868 to the hire H2181 [H8802] of an harlot.
8 H5594 [H8799] Therefore I will wail H3213 [H8686] and weep H3212 [H8799] , I will go H7758 H7758 [H8675] stripped H6174 and naked H6213 [H8799] : I will make H4553 a wailing H8577 like the dragons H60 , and mourning H1323 H3284 as the owls.
9 H4347 For her wound H605 [H8803] is incurable H935 [H8804] ; for it is come H3063 to Judah H5060 [H8804] ; he is come H8179 to the gate H5971 of my people H3389 , even to Jerusalem.
10 H5046 [H8686] Declare H1661 ye it not at Gath H1058 [H8799] , weep H1058 [H8800] ye not at all H1036 : in the house of Aphrah H6428 H6428 [H8690] roll H6083 thyself in the dust.
11 H5674 [H8798] Pass ye away H3427 [H8802] , thou inhabitant H8208 of Saphir H1322 , having thy shame H6181 naked H3427 [H8802] : the inhabitant H6630 of Zaanan H3318 [H8804] came not forth H4553 in the mourning H1018 of Bethezel H3947 [H8799] ; he shall receive H5979 from you his standing.
12 H3427 [H8802] For the inhabitant H4796 of Maroth H2342 [H8804] became weak waiting H2896 for good H7451 : but evil H3381 [H8804] came down H3068 from the LORD H8179 to the gate H3389 of Jerusalem.
13 H3427 [H8802] O thou inhabitant H3923 of Lachish H7573 [H8798] , bind H4818 the chariot H7409 to the swift beast H7225 : she is the beginning H2403 of the sin H1323 to the daughter H6726 of Zion H6588 : for the transgressions H3478 of Israel H4672 [H8738] were found in thee.
14 H5414 [H8799] Therefore shalt thou give H7964 presents H4182 to Moreshethgath H1004 : the houses H392 of Achzib H391 shall be a lie H4428 to the kings H3478 of Israel.
15 H935 [H8686] Yet will I bring H3423 [H8802] an heir H3427 [H8802] to thee, O inhabitant H4762 of Mareshah H935 [H8799] : he shall come H5725 to Adullam H3519 the glory H3478 of Israel.
