Micah 7:5-7


7:5 Do not rely on a friend;

do not trust a companion!

Don’t even share secrets with the one who lies in your arms! 1 

7:6 For a son thinks his father is a fool,

a daughter challenges 2  her mother,

and a daughter-in-law her mother-in-law;

a man’s enemies are his own servants. 3 

7:7 But I will keep watching for the Lord;

I will wait for the God who delivers me.

My God will hear my lament. 4 

1 tn Heb “from the one who lies in your arms, guard the doors of your mouth.”

2 tn Heb “rises up against.”

3 tn Heb “the enemies of a man are the men of his house.”

4 tn Heb “me.” In the interest of clarity the nature of the prophet’s cry has been specified as “my lament” in the translation.
