Micah 1

1:1 The word of the LORD that came to Micah the Morasthite in
 the days of Jotham, Ahaz, [and] Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which
 he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.
1:2 Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein
 is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you, the Lord from
 his holy temple.
1:3 For behold, the LORD cometh forth from his place, and will
 come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth.
1:4 And the mountains shall be melted under him, and the valleys
 shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, [and] as the waters
 [that are] poured down a steep place.
1:5 For the transgression of Jacob [is] all this, and for the
 sins of the house of Israel. What [is] the transgression of
 Jacob? [is it] not Samaria? and what [are] the high places of
 Judah? [are they] not Jerusalem?
1:6 Therefore I will make Samaria as a heap of the field, [and]
 as plantings of a vineyard: and I will pour down her stones
 into the valley, and I will lay bare her foundations.
1:7 And all her graven images shall be beaten to pieces, and all
 her hires shall be burned with the fire, and all her idols will
 I lay desolate: for she gathered [it] from the hire of a
 harlot, and they shall return to the hire of a harlot.
1:8 Therefore I will wail and howl, I will go stripped and
 naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons, and mourning as
 the owls.
1:9 For her wound [is] incurable; for it is come to Judah; he is
 come to the gate of my people, [even] to Jerusalem.
1:10 Declare ye [it] not at Gath, weep ye not at all: in the
 house of Aphrah roll thyself in the dust.
1:11 Pass ye away, thou inhabitant of Saphir, having thy shame
 exposed: the inhabitant of Zaanan came not forth in the
 mourning of Beth-ezel; he shall receive from you his standing.
1:12 For the inhabitant of Maroth waited anxiously for good: but
 evil came down from the LORD to the gate of Jerusalem.
1:13 O thou inhabitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift
 beast: she [is] the beginning of the sin to the daughter of
 Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee.
1:14 Therefore shalt thou give presents to Moresheth-gath: the
 houses of Achzib [shall be] a lie to the kings of Israel.
1:15 Yet will I bring an heir to thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah:
 he shall come to Adullam the glory of Israel.
1:16 Make thee bald, and poll thee for thy delicate children;
 enlarge thy baldness as the eagle; for they are gone into
 captivity from thee.
