Micah 2:1-11

Woe
<01945>
to them that devise
<02803> (8802)
iniquity
<0205>_,
and work
<06466> (8802)
evil
<07451>
upon their beds
<04904>_!
when the morning
<01242>
is light
<0216>_,
they practise
<06213> (8799)
it, because it is
<03426>
in the power
<0410>
of their hand
<03027>_.
And they covet
<02530> (8804)
fields
<07704>_,
and take [them] by violence
<01497> (8804)_;
and houses
<01004>_,
and take [them] away
<05375> (8804)_:
so they oppress
<06231> (8804)
a man
<01397>
and his house
<01004>_,
even a man
<0376>
and his heritage
<05159>_.
{oppress: or, defraud}
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Behold, against this family
<04940>
do I devise
<02803> (8802)
an evil
<07451>_,
from which ye shall not remove
<04185> (8686)
your necks
<06677>_;
neither shall ye go
<03212> (8799)
haughtily
<07317>_:
for this time
<06256>
[is] evil
<07451>_.
In that day
<03117>
shall [one] take up
<05375> (8799)
a parable
<04912>
against you, and lament
<05091> (8804)
with a doleful
<05093>
lamentation
<05092>_,
[and] say
<0559> (8804)_,
We be utterly
<07703> (8800)
spoiled
<07703> (8738)_:
he hath changed
<04171> (8686)
the portion
<02506>
of my people
<05971>_:
how hath he removed
<04185> (8686)
[it] from me! turning away
<07725> (8788)
he hath divided
<02505> (8762)
our fields
<07704>_.
{a doleful...: Heb. a lamentation of lamentations} {turning...: or, instead of restoring}
Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast
<07993> (8688)
a cord
<02256>
by lot
<01486>
in the congregation
<06951>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
Prophesy
<05197> (8686)
ye not, [say they to them that] prophesy
<05197> (8686)_:
they shall not prophesy
<05197> (8686)
to them, [that] they shall not take
<05253> (8799)
shame
<03639>_.
{Prophesy ye...: or, Prophesy not as they prophesy: Heb. Drop, etc}
O [thou that art] named
<0559> (8803)
the house
<01004>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
is the spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
straitened
<07114> (8804)_?
[are] these his doings
<04611>_?
do not my words
<01697>
do good
<03190> (8686)
to him that walketh
<01980> (8802)
uprightly
<03477>_?
{straitened: or, shortened?} {uprightly: Heb. upright?}
Even of late
<0865>
my people
<05971>
is risen up
<06965> (8787)
as an enemy
<0341> (8802)_:
ye pull off
<06584> (8686)
the robe
<0145>
with
<04136>
the garment
<08008>
from them that pass
<05674> (8802)
by securely
<0983>
as men averse
<07725> (8803)
from war
<04421>_.
{of late: Heb. yesterday} {with the: Heb. over against a}
The women
<0802>
of my people
<05971>
have ye cast out
<01644> (8762)
from their pleasant
<08588>
houses
<01004>_;
from their children
<05768>
have ye taken away
<03947> (8799)
my glory
<01926>
for ever
<05769>_.
{women: or, wives}
Arise
<06965> (8798)
ye, and depart
<03212> (8798)_;
for this [is] not [your] rest
<04496>_:
because it is polluted
<02930> (8800)_,
it shall destroy
<02254> (8762)
[you], even with a sore
<04834> (8737)
destruction
<02256>_.
If
<03863>
a man
<0376>
walking
<01980> (8802)
in the spirit
<07307>
and falsehood
<08267>
do lie
<03576> (8765)_,
[saying], I will prophesy
<05197> (8686)
unto thee of wine
<03196>
and of strong drink
<07941>_;
he shall even be the prophet
<05197> (8688)
of this people
<05971>_.
{walking...: or, walk with the wind, and lie falsely}
