Micah 6

6:1 Hear, I pray you, that which Jehovah is saying: `Rise--strive thou with the mountains, And cause thou the hills to hear thy voice.' 6:2 Hear, O mountains, the strife of Jehovah, Ye strong ones--foundations of earth! For a strife [is] to Jehovah, with His people, And with Israel He doth reason. 6:3 O My people, what have I done to thee And what--have I wearied thee Testify against Me. 6:4 For I brought thee up from the land of Egypt, And from the house of servants I have ransomed thee, And I send before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam. 6:5 O My people, remember, I pray you, What counsel did Balak king of Moab, What answer him did Balaam son of Beor, (From Shittim unto Gilgal,) In order to know the righteous acts of Jehovah.'  6:6 With what do I come before Jehovah Do I bow to God Most High Do I come before Him with burnt-offerings With calves--sons of a year 6:7 Is Jehovah pleased with thousands of rams With myriads of streams of oil Do I give my first-born [for] my transgression The fruit of my body [for] the sin of my soul 6:8 He hath declared to thee, O man, what [is] good; Yea, what is Jehovah requiring of thee, Except--to do judgment, and love kindness, And lowly to walk with thy God  6:9 A voice of Jehovah to the city calleth, And wisdom doth fear Thy name, Hear ye the rod, and Him who appointed it. 6:10 Are there yet [in] the house of the wicked Treasures of wickedness, And the abhorred scanty ephah 6:11 Do I reckon [it] pure with balances of wickedness And with a bag of deceitful stones 6:12 Whose rich ones have been full of violence, And its inhabitants have spoken falsehood, And their tongue [is] deceitful in their mouth. 6:13 And I also, I have begun to smite thee, To make desolate, because of thy sins. 6:14 Thou--thou eatest, and thou art not satisfied, And thy pit [is] in thy midst, And thou removest, and dost not deliver, And that which thou deliverest, to a sword I give. 6:15 Thou--thou sowest, and thou dost not reap, Thou--thou treadest the olive, And thou pourest not out oil, And new wine--and thou drinkest not wine. 6:16 And kept habitually are the statutes of Omri, And all the work of the house of Ahab, And ye do walk in their counsels, For My giving thee for a desolation, And its inhabitants for a hissing, And the reproach of My people ye do bear!
