Micah 6:9-16

Cheating and Violence to Be Punished


9 The voice of the Lord cries to the city
   (it is sound wisdom to fear your name):
Hear, O tribe and assembly of the city!*
10   Can I forget* the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked,
   and the scant measure that is accursed?
11 Can I tolerate wicked scales
   and a bag of dishonest weights?
12 Your* wealthy are full of violence;
   your* inhabitants speak lies,
   with tongues of deceit in their mouths.
13 Therefore I have begun* to strike you down,
   making you desolate because of your sins.
14 You shall eat, but not be satisfied,
   and there shall be a gnawing hunger within you;
you shall put away, but not save,
   and what you save, I will hand over to the sword.
15 You shall sow, but not reap;
   you shall tread olives, but not anoint yourselves with oil;
   you shall tread grapes, but not drink wine.
16 For you have kept the statutes of Omri*
   and all the works of the house of Ahab,
   and you have followed their counsels.
Therefore I will make you a desolation, and your* inhabitants an object of hissing;
   so you shall bear the scorn of my people.
