Micah 2

2:1 Woe to them that deuise iniquitie, and worke euill vpon their beds: when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand. 2:2 And they couet fields and take them by violence: and houses, and take them away: so they oppresse a man and his house, euen a man and his heritage. 2:3 Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, against this familie doe I deuise an euill, from which ye shall not remoue your necks, neither shall ye goe haughtily: for this time is euill. 2:4 In that day shall one take vp a parable against you, and lament with a dolefull lamentation, and say, We be vtterly spoiled: hee hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he remoued it from me turning away hee hath diuided our fields. 2:5 Therefore thou shalt haue none that shall cast a cord by lot in the Congregation of the Lord. 2:6 Prophecie ye not, say they, to them that prophecie: they shall not prophecie to them, that they shall not take shame. 2:7 O thou that art named the house of Iacob, is the Spirit of the Lord straitned are these his dongs doe not my words do good to him that walketh vprightly 2:8 Euen of late, my people is risen vp as an enemie: ye pull off the robe with the garment, fro them that passe by securely, as men auerse from warre. 2:9 The women of my people haue ye cast out from their pleasant houses, from their children haue ye taken away my glory for euer. 2:10 Arise ye and depart, for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you euen with a sore destruction. 2:11 If a man walking in the spirit and falshood, doe lie, saying, I will prophecie vnto thee of wine and of strong drinke, he shall euen bee the prophet of this people. 2:12 I will surely assemble, O Iacob, all of thee: I will surely gather the remnant of Israel, I will put them together as the sheepe of Bozrah, as the flocke in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. 2:13 The breaker is come vp before them: they haue broken vp and haue passed through the gate, and are gone out by it, and their king shal passe before them, & the Lord on the head of them.
