Micah 7 (ASV)
1 Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grape gleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat; my soul desireth the first-ripe fig.
2 The godly man is perished out of the earth, and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.
3 Their hands are upon that which is evil to do it diligently; the prince asketh, and the judge is ready for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth the evil desire of his soul: thus they weave it together.
4 The best of them is as a brier; the most upright is worse than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen, even thy visitation, is come; now shall be their perplexity.
5 Trust ye not in a neighbor; put ye not confidence in a friend; keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.
6 For the son dishonoreth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.
7 But as for me, I will look unto Jehovah; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.
8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, Jehovah will be a light unto me.
9 I will bear the indignation of Jehovah, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.
10 Then mine enemy shall see it, and shame shall cover her who said unto me, Where is Jehovah thy God? Mine eyes shall see my desire upon her; now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets.
11 A day for building thy walls! in that day shall the decree be far removed.
12 In that day shall they come unto thee from Assyria and the cities of Egypt, and from Egypt even to the River, and from sea to sea, and from mountain to mountain.
13 Yet shall the land be desolate because of them that dwell therein, for the fruit of their doings.
14 Feed thy people with thy rod, the flock of thy heritage, which dwell solitarily, in the forest in the midst of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old.
15 As in the days of thy coming forth out of the land of Egypt will I show unto them marvellous things.
16 The nations shall see and be ashamed of all their might; they shall lay their hand upon their mouth; their ears shall be deaf.
17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent; like crawling things of the earth they shall come trembling out of their close places; they shall come with fear unto Jehovah our God, and shall be afraid because of thee.
18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth over the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in lovingkindness.
19 He will again have compassion upon us; he will tread our iniquities under foot; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the lovingkindness to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.
Micah 7 (KJVS)
1 Woe  is me! for I am as when they have gathered  the summer fruits , as the grapegleanings  of the vintage : [there is] no cluster  to eat  (8800): my soul  desired  (8765) the firstripe fruit .
2 The good  [man] is perished  (8804) out of the earth : and [there is] none upright  among men : they all lie in wait  (8799) for blood ; they hunt  (8799) every man  his brother  with a net .
3 That they may do evil  with both hands  earnestly  (8687), the prince  asketh  (8802), and the judge  (8802) [asketh] for a reward ; and the great  [man], he uttereth  (8802) his mischievous  desire : so they wrap it up  (8762).
4 The best  of them [is] as a brier : the most upright  [is sharper] than a thorn hedge : the day  of thy watchmen  (8764) [and] thy visitation  cometh  (8804); now shall be their perplexity .
5 Trust  (8686) ye not in a friend , put ye not confidence  (8799) in a guide : keep  (8798) the doors  of thy mouth  from her that lieth  (8802) in thy bosom .
6 For the son  dishonoureth  (8764) the father , the daughter  riseth up  (8801) against her mother , the daughter in law  against her mother in law ; a man’s  enemies  (8802) [are] the men  of his own house .
7 Therefore I will look  (8762) unto the LORD ; I will wait  (8686) for the God  of my salvation : my God  will hear  (8799) me.
8 Rejoice  (8799) not against me, O mine enemy  (8802): when I fall  (8804), I shall arise  (8804); when I sit  (8799) in darkness , the LORD  [shall be] a light  unto me.
9 I will bear  (8799) the indignation  of the LORD , because I have sinned  (8804) against him, until he plead  (8799) my cause , and execute  (8804) judgment  for me: he will bring me forth  (8686) to the light , [and] I shall behold  (8799) his righteousness .
10 Then [she that is] mine enemy  (8802) shall see  (8799) [it], and shame  shall cover  (8762) her which said  (8802) unto me, Where is the LORD  thy God ? mine eyes  shall behold  (8799) her: now shall she be trodden down  as the mire  of the streets .
11 [In] the day  that thy walls  are to be built  (8800), [in] that day  shall the decree  be far removed  (8799).
12 [In] that day  [also] he shall come  (8799) even to thee from Assyria , and [from] the fortified  cities , and from the fortress  even to the river , and from sea  to sea , and [from] mountain  to mountain .
13 Notwithstanding the land  shall be desolate  because of them that dwell  (8802) therein, for the fruit  of their doings .
14 Feed  (8798) thy people  with thy rod , the flock  of thine heritage , which dwell  (8802) solitarily  [in] the wood , in the midst  of Carmel : let them feed  (8799) [in] Bashan  and Gilead , as in the days  of old .
15 According to the days  of thy coming  (8800) out of the land  of Egypt  will I shew  (8686) unto him marvellous  (8737) [things].
16 The nations  shall see  (8799) and be confounded  (8799) at all their might : they shall lay  (8799) [their] hand  upon [their] mouth , their ears  shall be deaf  (8799).
17 They shall lick  (8762) the dust  like a serpent , they shall move  (8799) out of their holes  like worms  (8801) of the earth : they shall be afraid  (8799) of the LORD  our God , and shall fear  (8799) because of thee.
18 Who [is] a God  like unto thee, that pardoneth  (8802) iniquity , and passeth by  (8802) the transgression  of the remnant  of his heritage ? he retaineth  (8689) not his anger  for ever , because he delighteth  (8804) [in] mercy .
19 He will turn again  (8799), he will have compassion  (8762) upon us; he will subdue  (8799) our iniquities ; and thou wilt cast  (8686) all their sins  into the depths  of the sea .
Micah 7 (YLT)
1 My woe is to me, for I have been As gatherings of summer-fruit, As gleanings of harvest, There is no cluster to eat, The first-ripe fruit desired hath my soul.
2 Perished hath the kind out of the land, And upright among men-there are none, All of them for blood lie in wait, Each his brother they hunt with a net.
3 On the evil are both hands to do it well, The prince is asking-also the judge-for recompence, And the great-he is speaking the mischief of his soul, And they wrap it up.
4 Their best one is as a brier, The upright one-than a thorn-hedge, The day of thy watchmen- Thy visitation-hath come. Now is their perplexity.
5 Believe not in a friend, trust not in a leader, From her who is lying in thy bosom keep the openings of thy mouth.
6 For a son is dishonouring a father, A daughter hath stood against her mother, A daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, The enemies of each are the men of his house.
7 And I-in Jehovah I do watch, I do wait for the God of my salvation, Hear me doth my God.
8 Thou dost not rejoice over me, O mine enemy, When I have fallen, I have risen, When I sit in darkness Jehovah is a light to me.
9 The indignation of Jehovah I do bear, For I have sinned against Him, Till that He doth plead my cause, And hath executed my judgment, He doth bring me forth to the light, I look on His righteousness.
10 And see doth mine enemy, And cover her doth shame, Who saith unto me, ‘Where is Jehovah thy God?’ Mine eyes do look on her, Now she is for a treading-place, As mire of the out-places.
11 The day to build thy walls! That day-removed is the limit.
12 That day-even unto thee it doth come in, From Asshur and the cities of the fortress, And from the fortress even unto the river, And from sea to sea, and mount to mount.
13 And the land hath been for a desolation, Because of its inhabitants, Because of the fruit of their doings.
14 Rule Thou Thy people with Thy rod, The flock of Thine inheritance, Dwelling alone in a forest in the midst of Carmel, They enjoy Bashan and Gilead as in days of old.
15 According to the days of thy coming forth out of the land of Egypt, I do shew it wonderful things.
16 See do nations, and they are ashamed of all their might, They lay a hand on the mouth, their ears are deaf.
17 They lick dust as a serpent, as fearful things of earth, They tremble from their enclosures, Of Jehovah our God they are afraid, Yea, they are afraid of Thee.
18 Who is a God like Thee? taking away iniquity, And passing by the transgression of the remnant of His inheritance, He hath not retained for ever His anger, Because He-He delighteth in kindness.
19 He doth turn back, He pitieth us, He doth subdue our iniquities, And Thou castest into the depths of the sea all their sins.
20 Thou givest truth to Jacob, kindness to Abraham, That thou hast sworn to our fathers, from the days of antiquity!
