Micah 3
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And he said: ”Hear therefore these things, Heads of the house of Yaqob and Rulers of the house of Israel! Was it not fitting for you to know judgment?

2Haters of good and lovers of evil, you who snatch their skin from them and their flesh from their bones

3Who have consumed the flesh of my people and they stripped their skin from them and their bones they have broken, and they threw it as if into a pot, and like meat into pots

4Then they will wail to LORD JEHOVAH and he will not answer them, and he shall turn away his face from them at that time because of their evil deeds which they have done

5Thus says LORD JEHOVAH about the Prophets who seduce my people, who bite with their teeth and are preaching peace, and whoever does not put food into their mouths, they proclaim war against him

6Because of this you shall have night from the vision and you shall darken yourselves from the oracle, and you shall make the sun set on the Prophets, and the day shall grow dark over them

7And those who are seers of visions shall be ashamed, and the Soothsayers shall be put to shame and all of them shall be covered over their lips because God has not answered them

8However I am full of the power of The Spirit of LORD JEHOVAH, and judgment and heroic power. I will show to Yaqob his evil and to Israel his sin

9Hear this, therefore, Heads of the house of Yaqob and Rulers of the house of Israel who despise judgment and are perverting all upright things

10Who are building Zion in blood and Jerusalem in evil

11Her Rulers judge for a bribe and her Priests teach for wages and her Prophets consult the oracle for silver, and they rely upon LORD JEHOVAH and they say: ”Behold, LORD JEHOVAH is with us! Evil is not coming upon us!”

12Therefore, because of you, Oh Zion, the country shall be led away, and Jerusalem will be desolate, and the Mountain of The House will be the place of a forest
