Micah 6 ©
God's controversy with his people for ingratitude. What service is acceptable to him. He reproveth them for their injustice, and idolatry.
jWill the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? kshall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my 3body for the sin of my soul?
uThou shalt eat, but not be satisfied; and thy casting down shall be in the midst of thee; and vthou shalt take hold, but shalt not deliver; and that which thou deliverest will I give up to the sword.
¶For 9the xstatutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I yshould make thee a 10desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing: therefore zye shall bear the reproach of my people.
