Micah 2:1-5

Social Evils Denounced

2Alas for those who devise wickedness
   and evil deeds* on their beds!
When the morning dawns, they perform it,
   because it is in their power.
2 They covet fields, and seize them;
   houses, and take them away;
they oppress householder and house,
   people and their inheritance.
3 Therefore, thus says the Lord:
Now, I am devising against this family an evil
   from which you cannot remove your necks;
and you shall not walk haughtily,
   for it will be an evil time.
4 On that day they shall take up a taunt-song against you,
   and wail with bitter lamentation,
and say, ‘We are utterly ruined;
   the Lord * alters the inheritance of my people;
how he removes it from me!
   Among our captors* he parcels out our fields.’
5 Therefore you will have no one to cast the line by lot
   in the assembly of the Lord.
