Micah 7 (WEBP)

[1] Misery is mine! Indeed, I am like one who gathers the summer fruits, as gleanings of the vineyard. There is no cluster of grapes to eat. My soul desires to eat the early fig.
[2] The godly man has perished out of the earth, and there is no one upright among men. They all lie in wait for blood; every man hunts his brother with a net.
[3] Their hands are on that which is evil to do it diligently. The ruler and judge ask for a bribe. The powerful man dictates the evil desire of his soul. Thus they conspire together.
[4] The best of them is like a brier. The most upright is worse than a thorn hedge. The day of your watchmen, even your visitation, has come; now is the time of their confusion.
[5] Don’t trust in a neighbor. Don’t put confidence in a friend. With the woman lying in your embrace, be careful of the words of your mouth!
[6] For the son dishonors the father, the daughter rises 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 to Yahweh. I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.
[8] Don’t rejoice against me, my enemy. When I fall, I will arise. When I sit in darkness, Yahweh will be a light to me.
[9] I will bear the indignation of Yahweh, because I have sinned against him, until he pleads my case and executes judgment for me. He will bring me out to the light. I will see his righteousness.
[10] Then my enemy will see it, and shame will cover her who said to me, “Where is Yahweh your God?” My eyes will see her. Now she will be trodden down like the mire of the streets.
[11] A day to build your walls! In that day, he will extend your boundary.
[12] In that day they will come to you from Assyria and the cities of Egypt, and from Egypt even to the River, and from sea to sea, and mountain to mountain.
[13] Yet the land will be desolate because of those who dwell therein, for the fruit of their doings.
[14] Shepherd your people with your staff, the flock of your heritage, who dwell by themselves in a forest. Let them feed in the middle of fertile pasture land, in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old.
[15] “As in the days of your coming out of the land of Egypt, I will show them marvelous things.”
[16] The nations will see and be ashamed of all their might. They will lay their hand on their mouth. Their ears will be deaf.
[17] They will lick the dust like a serpent. Like crawling things of the earth, they will come trembling out of their dens. They will come with fear to Yahweh our God, and will be afraid because of you.
[18] Who is a God like you, who pardons iniquity, and passes over the disobedience of the remnant of his heritage? He doesn’t retain his anger forever, because he delights in loving kindness.
[19] He will again have compassion on us. He will tread our iniquities under foot. You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
[20] You will give truth to Jacob, and mercy to Abraham, as you have sworn to our fathers from the days of old.

King James w/Strong’s #s

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 (): my soul desired () the firstripe fruit .
[2] The good [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] That they may do evil with both hands earnestly (), the prince asketh (), and the judge () [asketh] for a reward ; and the great [man], he uttereth () his mischievous desire : so they wrap it up ().
[4] The best of them [is] as a brier : the most upright [is sharper] than a thorn hedge : the day of thy watchmen () [and] thy visitation cometh (); now shall be their perplexity .
[5] Trust () ye not in a friend , put ye not confidence () in a guide : keep () the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth () in thy bosom .
[6] For the son dishonoureth () 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] Therefore I will look () unto the LORD ; 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 , the LORD [shall be] a light unto me.
[9] I will bear () the indignation of the LORD , 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 [she that is] mine enemy () shall see () [it], and shame shall cover () her which said () unto me, Where is the LORD thy God ? mine eyes shall behold () her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets .
[11] [In] the day that thy walls are to be built (), [in] that day shall the decree be far removed ().
[12] [In] that day [also] he shall come () 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 () therein, for the fruit of their doings .
[14] Feed () thy people with thy rod , the flock of thine heritage , which dwell () solitarily [in] the wood , in the midst of Carmel : let them feed () [in] Bashan and Gilead , as in the days of old .
[15] According to the days of thy coming () out of the land of Egypt will I shew () unto him marvellous () [things].
[16] The nations shall see () and be confounded () at 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 , they shall move () out of their holes like worms () of the earth : they shall be afraid () of the LORD our God , and shall fear () because of thee.
[18] Who [is] a God like unto thee, that pardoneth () iniquity , and passeth by () the transgression of the remnant of his heritage ? he retaineth () not his anger for ever , because he delighteth () [in] mercy .
[19] He will turn again (), he will have compassion () upon us; he will subdue () our iniquities ; and thou wilt cast () all their sins into the depths of the sea .
[20] Thou wilt perform () the truth to Jacob , [and] the mercy to Abraham , which thou hast sworn () unto our fathers from the days of old .

Young’s Literal Translation

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!
