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 H480 is me! for I am as when they have gathered H625 the summer fruits H7019, as the grapegleanings H5955 of the vintage H1210: [there is] no cluster H811 to eat H398 (8800): my soul H5315 desired H183 (8765) the firstripe fruit H1063.
[2] The good H2623 [man] is perished H6 (8804) out of the earth H776: and [there is] none upright H3477 among men H120: they all lie in wait H693 (8799) for blood H1818; they hunt H6679 (8799) every man H376 his brother H251 with a net H2764.
[3] That they may do evil H7451 with both hands H3709 earnestly H3190 (8687), the prince H8269 asketh H7592 (8802), and the judge H8199 (8802) [asketh] for a reward H7966; and the great H1419 [man], he uttereth H1696 (8802) his mischievous H1942 desire H5315: so they wrap it up H5686 (8762).
[4] The best H2896 of them [is] as a brier H2312: the most upright H3477 [is sharper] than a thorn hedge H4534: the day H3117 of thy watchmen H6822 (8764) [and] thy visitation H6486 cometh H935 (8804); now shall be their perplexity H3998.
[5] Trust H539 (8686) ye not in a friend H7453, put ye not confidence H982 (8799) in a guide H441: keep H8104 (8798) the doors H6607 of thy mouth H6310 from her that lieth H7901 (8802) in thy bosom H2436.
[6] For the son H1121 dishonoureth H5034 (8764) the father H1, the daughter H1323 riseth up H6965 (8801) against her mother H517, the daughter in law H3618 against her mother in law H2545; a man’s H376 enemies H341 (8802) [are] the men H582 of his own house H1004.
[7] Therefore I will look H6822 (8762) unto the LORD H3068; I will wait H3176 (8686) for the God H430 of my salvation H3468: my God H430 will hear H8085 (8799) me.
[8] Rejoice H8055 (8799) not against me, O mine enemy H341 (8802): when I fall H5307 (8804), I shall arise H6965 (8804); when I sit H3427 (8799) in darkness H2822, the LORD H3068 [shall be] a light H216 unto me.
[9] I will bear H5375 (8799) the indignation H2197 of the LORD H3068, because I have sinned H2398 (8804) against him, until he plead H7378 (8799) my cause H7379, and execute H6213 (8804) judgment H4941 for me: he will bring me forth H3318 (8686) to the light H216, [and] I shall behold H7200 (8799) his righteousness H6666.
[10] Then [she that is] mine enemy H341 (8802) shall see H7200 (8799) [it], and shame H955 shall cover H3680 (8762) her which said H559 (8802) unto me, Where is the LORD H3068 thy God H430? mine eyes H5869 shall behold H7200 (8799) her: now shall she be trodden down H4823 as the mire H2916 of the streets H2351.
[11] [In] the day H3117 that thy walls H1447 are to be built H1129 (8800), [in] that day H3117 shall the decree H2706 be far removed H7368 (8799).
[12] [In] that day H3117 [also] he shall come H935 (8799) even to thee from Assyria H804, and [from] the fortified H4693 cities H5892, and from the fortress H4693 even to the river H5104, and from sea H3220 to sea H3220, and [from] mountain H2022 to mountain H2022.
[13] Notwithstanding the land H776 shall be desolate H8077 because of them that dwell H3427 (8802) therein, for the fruit H6529 of their doings H4611.
[14] Feed H7462 (8798) thy people H5971 with thy rod H7626, the flock H6629 of thine heritage H5159, which dwell H7931 (8802) solitarily H910 [in] the wood H3293, in the midst H8432 of Carmel H3760: let them feed H7462 (8799) [in] Bashan H1316 and Gilead H1568, as in the days H3117 of old H5769.
[15] According to the days H3117 of thy coming H3318 (8800) out of the land H776 of Egypt H4714 will I shew H7200 (8686) unto him marvellous H6381 (8737) [things].
[16] The nations H1471 shall see H7200 (8799) and be confounded H954 (8799) at all their might H1369: they shall lay H7760 (8799) [their] hand H3027 upon [their] mouth H6310, their ears H241 shall be deaf H2790 (8799).
[17] They shall lick H3897 (8762) the dust H6083 like a serpent H5175, they shall move H7264 (8799) out of their holes H4526 like worms H2119 (8801) of the earth H776: they shall be afraid H6342 (8799) of the LORD H3068 our God H430, and shall fear H3372 (8799) because of thee.
[18] Who [is] a God H410 like unto thee, that pardoneth H5375 (8802) iniquity H5771, and passeth by H5674 (8802) the transgression H6588 of the remnant H7611 of his heritage H5159? he retaineth H2388 (8689) not his anger H639 for ever H5703, because he delighteth H2654 (8804) [in] mercy H2617.
[19] He will turn again H7725 (8799), he will have compassion H7355 (8762) upon us; he will subdue H3533 (8799) our iniquities H5771; and thou wilt cast H7993 (8686) all their sins H2403 into the depths H4688 of the sea H3220.
[20] Thou wilt perform H5414 (8799) the truth H571 to Jacob H3290, [and] the mercy H2617 to Abraham H85, which thou hast sworn H7650 (8738) unto our fathers H1 from the days H3117 of old H6924.

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!
