Micah 3 ©
Micah reproveth the cruelty of the princes, and the falsehood of the prophets. His zeal in showing the sins of the princes, priests, and prophets, and their ill grounded security.
Who also eat the flesh of my people, and *flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron.
eThen shall they fcry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: ghe will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
¶Thus saith the LORD concerning hthe prophets that make my people err, that ibite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.
They build up Zion with 4blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
qThe heads thereof judge for reward, and rthe priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof sdivine for money: yet twill they lean upon the LORD, 5and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.
