Micah 1:1 During the time that Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah were kings of Judah, the Lord gave this message to Micah, who was from the town of Moresheth. The Lord revealed to Micah all these things about Samaria and Jerusalem.
Micah 1:2 Hear this, all you nations; listen to this, all who live on earth! The Sovereign Lord will testify against you. Listen! He speaks from his heavenly temple.
Micah 1:3 The Lord is coming from his holy place; he will come down and walk on the tops of the mountains. Micah 1:4 Then the mountains will melt under him like wax in a fire; they will pour down into the valleys like water pouring down a hill.
Micah 1:5 All this will happen because the people of Israel have sinned and rebelled against God. Who is to blame for Israel's rebellion? Samaria, the capital city itself! Who is guilty of idolatry in Judah? Jerusalem itself!
Micah 1:6 So the Lord says, “I will make Samaria a pile of ruins in the open country, a place for planting grapevines. I will pour the rubble of the city down into the valley, and will lay bare the city's foundations.
Micah 1:7 All its precious idols will be smashed to pieces, everything given to its temple prostitutes will be destroyed by fire, and all its images will become a desolate heap. Samaria acquired these things for its fertility rites, and now her enemies will carry them off for temple prostitutes elsewhere.”
Micah 1:8 Then Micah said, “Because of this I will mourn and lament. To show my sorrow, I will walk about barefoot and naked. I will howl like a jackal and wail like an ostrich.
Micah 1:9 Samaria's wounds cannot be healed, and Judah is about to suffer in the same way; destruction has reached the gates of Jerusalem itself, where my people live.”
Micah 1:10 Don't tell our enemies in Gath about our defeat; don't let them see you weeping. People of Beth Leaphrah, show your despair by rolling in the dust!
Micah 1:11 You people of Shaphir, go into exile, naked and ashamed. Those who live in Zaanan dare not come out of their city. When you hear the people of Bethezel mourn, you will know that there is no refuge there.
Micah 1:12 The people of Maroth wait anxiously for relief, because the Lord has brought disaster close to Jerusalem. Micah 1:13 You that live in Lachish, hitch the horses to the chariots. You imitated the sins of Israel and so caused Jerusalem to sin.
Micah 1:14 And now, people of Judah, say goodbye to the town of Moresheth Gath. The kings of Israel will get no help from the town of Achzib.
Micah 1:15 People of Mareshah, the Lord will hand you over to an enemy, who is going to capture your town. The leaders of Israel will go and hide in the cave at Adullam.
Micah 1:16 People of Judah, cut off your hair in mourning for the children you love. Make yourselves as bald as vultures, because your children will be taken away from you into exile.
Micah 2:1 How terrible it will be for those who lie awake and plan evil! When morning comes, as soon as they have the chance, they do the evil they planned. Micah 2:2 When they want fields, they seize them; when they want houses, they take them. No one's family or property is safe.
Micah 2:3 And so the Lord says, “I am planning to bring disaster on you, and you will not be able to escape it. You are going to find yourselves in trouble, and then you will not walk so proudly any more.
Micah 2:4 When that time comes, people will use your story as an example of disaster, and they will sing this song of despair about your experience: We are completely ruined! The Lord has taken our land away And given it to those who took us captive.”
Micah 2:6 The people preach at me and say, “Don't preach at us. Don't preach about all that. God is not going to disgrace us. In the place of modern and black deco is contemporary,...an mixture of both,with a new and old element added in such a way it's neither past nor future. But,in the now which covers both. Parttime as well as fulltime. Universally,the modern has been a prelude to the foreign.
Isaiah 33:6 and give stability to the nation. He always protects his people and gives them wisdom and knowledge. Their greatest treasure is their reverence for the Lord .
The history of contemporary is a period of time that is without any intervening time closely connected to the present and is a certain perspective of modern.
