Micah 7:7-15


7 But as for me, I will look to the Lord,
   I will wait for the God of my salvation;
   my God will hear me.

Penitence and Trust in God


8 Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy;
   when I fall, I shall rise;
when I sit in darkness,
   the Lord will be a light to me.
9 I must bear the indignation of the Lord,
   because I have sinned against him,
until he takes my side
   and executes judgement for me.
He will bring me out to the light;
   I shall see his vindication.
10 Then my enemy will see,
   and shame will cover her who said to me,
   ‘Where is the Lord your God?’
My eyes will see her downfall;*
   now she will be trodden down
   like the mire of the streets.

A Prophecy of Restoration


11 A day for the building of your walls!
   In that day the boundary shall be far extended.
12 In that day they will come to you
   from Assyria to* Egypt,
and from Egypt to the River,
   from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.
13 But the earth will be desolate
   because of its inhabitants,
   for the fruit of their doings.


14 Shepherd your people with your staff,
   the flock that belongs to you,
which lives alone in a forest
   in the midst of a garden land;
let them feed in Bashan and Gilead
   as in the days of old.
15 As in the days when you came out of the land of Egypt,
   show us* marvellous things.
