Micah 3

Micah :Introduction 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Evil Rulers and Lying Prophets
3
1 Listen to me,
you rulers of Israel!
You know right from wrong,
2 but you prefer to do evil
instead of what is right.
You skin my people alive.
You strip off their flesh,
3 break their bones,
cook it all in a pot,
and gulp it down.

4 Someday you will beg the Lord
to help you,
but he will turn away
because of your sins.

5 You lying prophets promise
security
for anyone
who gives you food,
but disaster for anyone
who refuses to feed you.
Here is what the Lord says
to you prophets:
6 “You will live in the dark,
far from the sight of the sun,
with no message from me.
7 You prophets and fortunetellers
will all be disgraced,
with no message from me.”

8 But the Lord has filled me
with power and his Spirit.
I have been given the courage
to speak about justice
and to tell you people of Israel
that you have sinned.
9 So listen to my message,
you rulers of Israel!
You hate justice
and twist the truth.
10 You make cruelty and murder
a way of life in Jerusalem.
11 You leaders accept bribes
for dishonest decisions.
You priests and prophets
teach and preach,
but only for money.

Then you say,
“The Lord is on our side.
No harm will come to us.”
12 And so, because of you,
3.12 Jr 26.18.
Jerusalem will be plowed under
and left in ruins.
Thorns will cover the mountain
where the temple now stands.
