Micah 6


6:1 Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before
 the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice.
6:2 Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD'S controversy, and ye strong
 foundations of the earth: for the LORD hath a controversy with
 his people, and he will plead with Israel.
6:3 O my people, what have I done to thee? and wherein have I
 wearied thee? testify against me,
6:4 For I brought thee out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed
 thee from the house of servants; and I sent before thee Moses,
 Aaron, and Miriam.
6:5 O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted,
 and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim to
 Gilgal; that ye may know the righteousness of the LORD.
6:6 Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, [and] bow myself
 before the high God? shall I come before him with
 burnt-offerings, with calves of a year old?
6:7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, [or] with
 ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my first-born
 [for] my transgression, the fruit of my body [for] the sin of
 my soul?
6:8 He hath shown thee, O man, what [is] good; and what the LORD
 doth require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and
 to walk humbly with thy God?
6:9 The LORD'S voice crieth to the city, and [the man of] wisdom
 shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.
6:10 Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of
 the wicked, and the scant measure [that is] abominable?
6:11 Shall I count [them] pure with the wicked balances, and
 with the bag of deceitful weights?
6:12 For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the
 inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue [is]
 deceitful in their mouth.
6:13 Therefore also will I make [thee] sick in smiting thee, in
 making [thee] desolate because of thy sins.
6:14 Thou shalt eat, but not be satisfied; and thy casting down
 [shall be] in the midst of thee; and thou shalt take hold, but
 shalt not deliver; and [that] which thou deliverest will I give
 up to the sword.
6:15 Thou shalt sow, but thou shalt not reap; thou shalt tread
 the olives, but thou shalt not anoint thee with oil; and sweet
 wine, but shalt not drink wine.
6:16 For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the
 house of Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I should
 make thee a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing:
 therefore ye shall bear the reproach of my people.
