Micah 3 - Versions
Micah 3 Text (WEB)
  1. I said, "Please listen, you heads of Jacob, and rulers of the house of Israel: Isn't it for you to know justice?
  2. You who hate the good, and love the evil; who tear off their skin, and their flesh from off their bones;
  3. who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them, and break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron.
  4. Then they will cry to Yahweh, but he will not answer them. Yes, he will hide his face from them at that time, because they made their deeds evil."
  5. Thus says Yahweh concerning the prophets who lead my people astray; for those who feed their teeth, they proclaim, "Peace!" and whoever doesn't provide for their mouths, they prepare war against him:
  6. "Therefore night is over you, with no vision, and it is dark to you, that you may not divine; and the sun will go down on the prophets, and the day will be black over them.
  7. The seers shall be disappointed, and the diviners confounded. Yes, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer from God."
  8. But as for me, I am full of power by the Spirit of Yahweh, and of judgment, and of might, to declare to Jacob his disobedience, and to Israel his sin.
  9. Please listen to this, you heads of the house of Jacob, and rulers of the house of Israel, who abhor justice, and pervert all equity.
  10. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
  11. Her leaders judge for bribes, and her priests teach for a price, and her prophets of it tell fortunes for money: yet they lean on Yahweh, and say, "Isn't Yahweh in the midst of us? No disaster will come on us."
  12. Therefore Zion for your sake will be plowed like a field, and Jerusalem will become heaps of rubble, and the mountain of the temple like the high places of a forest.
Micah 3 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ואמר שמעו־נא ראשי יעקב וקציני בית ישראל הלוא לכם לדעת את־המשפט׃
  2. שנאי טוב ואהבי גזלי עורם מעליהם ושארם מעל עצמותם׃
  3. ואשר אכלו שאר עמי ועורם מעליהם הפשיטו ואת־עצמתיהם פצחו ופרשו כאשר בסיר וכבשר בתוך קלחת׃
  4. אז יזעקו אל־יהוה ולא יענה אותם ויסתר פניו מהם בעת ההיא כאשר הרעו מעלליהם׃ ף
  5. כה אמר יהוה על־הנביאים המתעים את־עמי הנשכים בשניהם וקראו שלום ואשר לא־יתן על־פיהם וקדשו עליו מלחמה׃
  6. לכן לילה לכם מחזון וחשכה לכם מקסם ובאה השמש על־הנביאים וקדר עליהם היום׃
  7. ובשו החזים וחפרו הקסמים ועטו על־שפם כלם כי אין מענה אלהים׃
  8. ואולם אנכי מלאתי כח את־רוח יהוה ומשפט וגבורה להגיד ליעקב פשעו ולישראל חטאתו׃ ס
  9. שמעו־נא זאת ראשי בית יעקב וקציני בית ישראל המתעבים משפט ואת כל־הישרה יעקשו׃
  10. בנה ציון בדמים וירושלם בעולה׃
  11. ראשיה בשחד ישפטו וכהניה במחיר יורו ונביאיה בכסף יקסמו ועל־יהוה ישענו לאמר הלוא יהוה בקרבנו לא־תבוא עלינו רעה׃
  12. לכן בגללכם ציון שדה תחרש וירושלם עיין תהיה והר הבית לבמות יער׃ ף
Micah 3 Text (Greek)
  1. και ερει ακουσατε δη ταυτα αι αρχαι οικου ιακωβ και οι καταλοιποι οικου ισραηλ ουχ υμιν εστιν του γνωναι το
  2. οι μισουντες τα καλα και ζητουντες τα πονηρα αρπαζοντες τα δερματα αυτων απ' αυτων και τας σαρκας αυτων απο των οστεων
  3. ον τροπον κατεφαγον τας σαρκας του λαου μου και τα δερματα αυτων απο των οστεων αυτων εξεδειραν και τα οστεα αυτων συνεθλασαν και εμελισαν ως σαρκας εις λεβητα και ως κρεα εις
  4. ουτως κεκραξονται προς κυριον και ουκ εισακουσεται αυτων και αποστρεψει το προσωπον αυτου απ' αυτων εν τω καιρω εκεινω ανθ' ων επονηρευσαντο εν τοις επιτηδευμασιν αυτων επ'
  5. ταδε λεγει κυριος επι τους προφητας τους πλανωντας τον λαον μου τους δακνοντας εν τοις οδουσιν αυτων και κηρυσσοντας επ' αυτον ειρηνην και ουκ εδοθη εις το στομα αυτων ηγειραν επ' αυτον
  6. δια τουτο νυξ υμιν εσται εξ ορασεως και σκοτια υμιν εσται εκ μαντειας και δυσεται ο ηλιος επι τους προφητας και συσκοτασει επ' αυτους η
  7. και καταισχυνθησονται οι ορωντες τα ενυπνια και καταγελασθησονται οι μαντεις και καταλαλησουσιν κατ' αυτων παντες αυτοι διοτι ουκ εσται ο εισακουων
  8. εαν μη εγω εμπλησω ισχυν εν πνευματι κυριου και κριματος και δυναστειας του απαγγειλαι τω ιακωβ ασεβειας αυτου και τω ισραηλ αμαρτιας
  9. ακουσατε δη ταυτα οι ηγουμενοι οικου ιακωβ και οι καταλοιποι οικου ισραηλ οι βδελυσσομενοι κριμα και παντα τα ορθα
  10. οι οικοδομουντες σιων εν αιμασιν και ιερουσαλημ εν
  11. οι ηγουμενοι αυτης μετα δωρων εκρινον και οι ιερεις αυτης μετα μισθου απεκρινοντο και οι προφηται αυτης μετα αργυριου εμαντευοντο και επι τον κυριον επανεπαυοντο λεγοντες ουχι κυριος εν ημιν εστιν ου μη επελθη εφ' ημας
  12. δια τουτο δι' υμας σιων ως αγρος αροτριαθησεται και ιερουσαλημ ως οπωροφυλακιον εσται και το ορος του οικου ως αλσος
Micah 3 Text (Latin)
  1. Et dixi : Audite, princeps Jacob, et duces domus Israël : numquid non vestrum est scire judicium,
  2. qui odio habetis bonum, et diligitis malum ; qui violenter tollitis pelles eorum desuper eis, et carnem eorum desuper ossibus eorum ;
  3. qui comederunt carnem populi mei, et pellem eorum desuper excoriaverunt, et ossa eorum confregerunt, et conciderunt sicut in lebete, et quasi carnem in medio ollæ ?
  4. Tunc clamabunt ad Dominum, et non exaudiet eos, et abscondet faciem suam ab eis in tempore illo, sicut nequiter egerunt in adinventionibus suis.
  5. Hæc dicit Dominus super prophetas, qui seducunt populum meum : qui mordent dentibus suis, et prædicant pacem ; et si quis non dederit in ore eorum quippiam, sanctificant super eum prælium.
  6. Propterea nox vobis pro visione erit, et tenebræ vobis pro divinatione ; et occumbet sol super prophetas, et obtenebrabitur super eos dies.
  7. Et confundentur qui vident visiones, et confundentur divini ; et operient omnes vultos suos, quia non est responsum Dei.
  8. Verumtamen ego repletus sum fortitudine spiritus Domini, judicio, et virtute, ut annuntiem Jacob scelus suum, et Israël peccatum suum.
  9. Audite hoc, principes domus Jacob, et judices domus Israël, qui abominamini judicium, et omnia recta pervertitis :
  10. qui ædificatis Sion in sanguinibus, et Jerusalem in iniquitate.
  11. Principes ejus in muneribus judicabant, et sacerdotes ejus in mercede docebant, et prophetæ ejus in pecunia divinabant : et super Dominum requiescebant, dicentes : Numquid non Dominus in medio nostrum ? non venient super nos mala.
  12. Propter hoc, causa vestri, Sion quasi ager arabitur, et Jerusalem quasi acervus lapidum erit, et mons templi in excelsa silvarum.
Micah 3 Text (KJV)
  1. And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?
  2. Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones;
  3. Who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron.
  4. Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
  5. Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.
  6. Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.
  7. Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.
  8. But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
  9. Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.
  10. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
  11. The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.
  12. Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.
