1 H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H4318 that came to Micah H4183 the Morasthite H3117 in the days H3147 of Jotham H271 , Ahaz H3169 , and Hezekiah H4428 , kings H3063 of Judah H2372 , which he saw [H8804] H8111 concerning Samaria H3389 and Jerusalem.
2 H8085 Hear [H8798] H5971 , all ye people H7181 ; hearken [H8685] H776 , O earth H4393 , and all that therein H136 is: and let the Lord H3069 GOD H5707 be witness H136 against you, the Lord H6944 from his holy H1964 temple.
3 H3068 For, behold, the LORD H3318 cometh forth [H8802] H4725 out of his place H3381 , and will come down [H8804] H1869 , and tread [H8804] H1116 upon the high places H776 of the earth.
4 H2022 And the mountains H4549 shall be molten [H8738] H6010 under him, and the valleys H1234 shall be cleft [H8691] H1749 , as wax H6440 before H784 the fire H4325 , and as the waters H5064 that are poured [H8716] H4174 down a steep place.
5 H6588 For the transgression H3290 of Jacob H2403 is all this, and for the sins H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel H6588 . What is the transgression H3290 of Jacob H8111 ? is it not Samaria H1116 ? and what are the high places H3063 of Judah H3389 ? are they not Jerusalem?
6 H7760 Therefore I will make [H8804] H8111 Samaria H5856 as an heap H7704 of the field H4302 , and as plantings H3754 of a vineyard H5064 : and I will pour down [H8689] H68 the stones H1516 thereof into the valley H1540 , and I will discover [H8762] H3247 the foundations thereof.
7 H6456 And all the graven images H3807 thereof shall be beaten to pieces [H8714] H868 , and all the hires H8313 thereof shall be burned [H8735] H784 with the fire H6091 , and all the idols H7760 thereof will I lay [H8799] H8077 desolate H6908 : for she gathered [H8765] H868 it of the hire H2181 of an harlot [H8802] H7725 , and they shall return [H8799] H868 to the hire H2181 of an harlot [H8802] .
8 H5594 Therefore I will wail [H8799] H3213 and howl [H8686] H3212 , I will go [H8799] H7758 stripped [H8675] H7758 H6174 and naked H6213 : I will make [H8799] H4553 a wailing H8577 like the dragons H60 , and mourning H1323 as the owls H3284 .
9 H4347 For her wound H605 is incurable [H8803] H935 ; for it is come [H8804] H3063 unto Judah H5060 ; he is come [H8804] H8179 unto the gate H5971 of my people H3389 , even to Jerusalem.
10 H5046 Declare [H8686] H1661 ye it not at Gath H1058 , weep [H8799] H1058 ye not at all [H8800] H1036 : in the house of Aphrah H6428 roll [H8690] [H8675] H6428 [H8694] H6083 thyself in the dust.
11 H5674 Pass ye away [H8798] H3427 , thou inhabitant [H8802] H8208 of Saphir H1322 , having thy shame H6181 naked H3427 : the inhabitant [H8802] H6630 of Zaanan H3318 came not forth [H8804] H4553 in the mourning H1018 of Bethezel H3947 ; he shall receive [H8799] H5979 of you his standing.
12 H3427 For the inhabitant [H8802] H4796 of Maroth H2342 waited carefully [H8804] H2896 for good H7451 : but evil H3381 came down [H8804] H3068 from the LORD H8179 unto the gate H3389 of Jerusalem.
13 H3427 O thou inhabitant [H8802] H3923 of Lachish H7573 , bind [H8798] H4818 the chariot H7409 to the swift beast H7225 : she is the beginning H2403 of the sin H1323 to the daughter H6726 of Zion H6588 : for the transgressions H3478 of Israel H4672 were found [H8738] in thee.
14 H5414 Therefore shalt thou give [H8799] H7964 presents H4182 to Moreshethgath H1004 : the houses H392 of Achzib H391 shall be a lie H4428 to the kings H3478 of Israel.
15 H935 Yet will I bring [H8686] H3423 an heir [H8802] H3427 unto thee, O inhabitant [H8802] H4762 of Mareshah H935 : he shall come [H8799] H5725 unto Adullam H3519 the glory H3478 of Israel.
