    Micah 2:Chapter 2

    Micah 2:1 Woe to those who devise iniquity and work evil on their beds! When the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand.

    Micah 2:2 They covet fields, and seize them; and houses, and take them away: and they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

    Micah 2:3 Therefore thus says Yahweh: “behold, I am planning against these people a disaster, from which you will not remove your necks, neither will you walk arrogantly; for it is an evil time.

    Micah 2:4 In that day they will take up a simile against you, and lament with a painful lamentation, saying, ‘We are utterly ruined! My people’s possessions are divided up. Indeed, he takes it from me and assigns our fields to traitors!’”

    Micah 2:5 Therefore you will have no one who divides the land by lot in the assembly of Yahweh.

    Micah 2:6 “Do not prophesy!” They prophesy. “Do not prophesy about these things. Disgrace will not overtake us.”

    Micah 2:7 Will it be said, oh house of Jacob: “is the Spirit of Yahweh angry? Are these His doings? Do not My words do good to him who walks blamelessly?”

    Micah 2:8 But lately My people have risen up as an enemy. You strip the robe and clothing from those who pass by without a care, returning from battle.

    Micah 2:9 You drive the women of My people out from their pleasant houses; from their young children, you take away My glory perpetually.

    Micah 2:10 Arise and depart! For this is not your resting place because of uncleanness that destroys, even with a grievous destruction.

    Micah 2:11 If a man walking in a spirit of falsehood lies: “I will prophesy to you of wine and of strong drink”; he would be the prophet of this people.

    Micah 2:12 I will surely assemble, Jacob, all of you; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as a flock in the midst of their pasture; they will swarm with people.

    Micah 2:13 He who breaks open the way goes up before them. They break through the gate and go out. And their king passes on before them, with Yahweh at their head.
