Micah 2


2:1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their
 beds! when the morning is light, they practice it, because it
 is in the power of their hand.
2:2 And they covet fields, and take [them] by violence; and
 houses, and take [them] away: so they oppress a man and his
 house, even a man and his heritage.
2:3 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family
 do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks;
 neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time [is] evil.
2:4 In that day shall [one] take up a parable against you, and
 lament with a grievous lamentation, [and] say, We are utterly
 wasted: he hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he
 removed [it] from me! turning away he hath divided our fields.
2:5 Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot
 in the congregation of the LORD.
2:6 Prophesy ye not, [say they to them that] prophesy: they
 shall not prophesy to them, [that] they shall not take shame.
2:7 O [thou that art] named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of
 the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do
 good to him that walketh uprightly?
2:8 Even of late my people hath risen up as an enemy: ye pull
 off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely
 as men averse to war.
2:9 The women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant
 houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for
 ever.
2:10 Arise ye, and depart; for this [is] not [your] rest:
 because it is polluted, it shall destroy [you], even with a
 grievous destruction.
2:11 If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood doth lie,
 [saying], I will prophesy to thee of wine and of strong drink;
 he shall even be the prophet of this people.
2:12 I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely
 gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the
 sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they
 shall make great noise by reason of [the multitude of] men.
2:13 The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up,
 and have passed through the gate, and have gone out by it; and
 their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of
 them.
