NASB — Micah 6 — KJV

God’s Indictment of His People

  1 Hear now what the LORD is saying,
  “Arise, plead your case Ibefore the mountains,
  And let the hills hear your voice.
  2 “Listen, you mountains, to the indictment of the LORD,
  And you enduring afoundations of the earth,
  Because the bLORD has a case against His people;
  Even with Israel He will dispute.
  3aMy people, bwhat have I done to you,
  And chow have I wearied you? Answer Me.
  4 “Indeed, I abrought you up from the land of Egypt
  And bransomed you from the house of slavery,
  And I sent before you cMoses, Aaron and dMiriam.
  5 “My people, remember now
  What aBalak king of Moab counseled
  And what Balaam son of Beor answered him,
  [And] from bShittim to cGilgal,
  So Ithat you might know the drighteous acts of the LORD.”

What God Requires of Man

  6aWith what shall I come to the LORD
  [And] bow myself before the God on high?
  Shall I come to Him with bburnt offerings,
  With yearling calves?
  7 Does the LORD take delight in athousands of rams,
  In ten thousand rivers of oil?
  Shall I present my bfirstborn [for] my rebellious acts,
  The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
  8 He has atold you, O man, what is good;
  And bwhat does the LORD require of you
  But to cdo justice, to dlove Ikindness,
  And to walk IIehumbly with your God?

  9 ¶ The voice of the LORD will call to the city
  And it is sound wisdom to fear Your name:
  “Hear, O tribe. Who has appointed Iits time?
  10 “Is there yet a man in the wicked house,
  [Along with] treasures of awickedness
  And a Ibshort measure [that is] cursed?
  11 “Can I justify wicked ascales
  And a bag of deceptive weights?
  12 “For the rich men of [the] Icity are full of aviolence,
  Her residents speak blies,
  And their ctongue is deceitful in their mouth.
  13 “So also I will make [you] asick, striking you down,
  bDesolating [you] because of your sins.
  14 “You will eat, but you will anot be satisfied,
  And your Ivileness will be in your midst.
  You will [try to] remove [for safekeeping],
  But you will bnot preserve [anything],
  And what you do preserve I will give to the sword.
  15 “You will sow but you will anot reap.
  You will tread the olive but will not anoint yourself with oil;
  And the grapes, but you will bnot drink wine.
  16 “The statutes of aOmri
  And all the works of the house of bAhab are observed;
  And in their devices you cwalk.
  Therefore I will give you up for ddestruction
  And Iyour inhabitants for ederision,
  And you will bear the freproach of My people.”

God's controversy for unkindness,

1 ¶ Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice. 2 Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD'S controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the LORD hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel. 3 O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? testify against me. 4 For I brought thee up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of servants; and I sent before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam. 5 O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim unto Gilgal; that ye may know the righteousness of the LORD.

for ignorance,

6 ¶ Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, [and] bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? 7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, [or] with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn [for] my transgression, the fruit of my body [for] the sin of my soul? 8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what [is] good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? 9 The LORD'S voice crieth unto the city, and [the man of] wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.

for injustice,

10 ¶ Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure [that is] abominable? 11 Shall I count [them] pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of deceitful weights? 12 For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue [is] deceitful in their mouth. 13 Therefore also will I make [thee] sick in smiting thee, in making [thee] desolate because of thy sins. 14 Thou shalt eat, but not be satisfied; and thy casting down [shall be] in the midst of thee; and thou shalt take hold, but shalt not deliver; and [that] which thou deliverest will I give up to the sword. 15 Thou shalt sow, but thou shalt not reap; thou shalt tread the olives, but thou shalt not anoint thee with oil; and sweet wine, but shalt not drink wine.
