Micah 1 ©
1 The time when Micah prophesied. 2 Micah showeth the wrath of God against Israel and Judah for idolatry. 10 A lamentation for them.
For the mtransgression of Jacob is all this, and for the sins of the house of Israel. nWhat is the transgression of Jacob? is it not Samaria? and what are the high places of Judah? are they not Jerusalem?
Therefore oI will make Samaria as an heap of the field, and as plantings of a vineyard: and pI will pour down the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the foundations thereof.
And qall the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, and all rthe hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate: for she sgathered it of the hire of an harlot, and tthey shall return to the hire of an harlot.
vFor 5her wound is incurable; for wit is come unto Judah; he is come unto the gate of my people, even to Jerusalem.
O cthou inhabitant of Lachish, dbind the chariot to the swift beast: she is the ebeginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee.
