Micah 1:12


1:12 Indeed, the residents of Maroth 1  hope for something good to happen, 2 

though the Lord has sent disaster against the city of Jerusalem. 3 

1 sn The place name Maroth sounds like the Hebrew word for “bitter.”

2 tc The translation assumes an emendation of חָלָה (khalah; from חִיל, khil, “to writhe”) to יִחֲלָה (yikhalah; from יָחַל, yakhal, “to wait”).

tn Heb “[the residents of Maroth] writhe [= “anxiously long for”?] good.”

3 tn Heb “though disaster has come down from the Lord to the gate of Jerusalem.”
