Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

弥迦书 1

1犹大王约坦、亚哈斯和希西迦执政期间,耶和华把祂的话传给了摩利沙人弥迦。他看到了有关撒玛利亚和耶路撒冷的异象。

审判将临

万民啊,
你们都要听!
大地和地上的万物啊,
你们要侧耳倾听!
主耶和华从祂的圣殿里作证指控你们。
看啊,耶和华离开祂的居所,
从天降临,
脚踏大地的高处。
群山在祂脚下熔化,
犹如火中的蜡;
山谷崩裂,
岩石如水沿山坡倾泻。
这一切都是因为雅各的叛逆,
以色列家的罪恶。
雅各的叛逆在哪里呢?
岂不是在撒玛利亚吗?
犹大的丘坛在哪里呢?
岂不是在耶路撒冷吗?
“所以,我耶和华要使撒玛利亚沦为荒野的废墟,
成为种葡萄的地方。
我要把她的石头抛进山谷,
直到露出她的根基。
她所有的神像都要被打碎,
她所得的淫资都要化为灰烬;
我要毁灭她的一切偶像。
她以淫资得来的偶像,
也要被用作妓女的淫资。”

先知的哀伤

为此,我要痛哭哀号,
我要赤身光脚而行,
像豺狼哀嚎,
如鸵鸟悲鸣。
因为撒玛利亚的创伤无法救治,
已经祸及犹大,
直逼我百姓的城门,直逼耶路撒冷。
10 不要在迦特宣扬,
也不要哭泣,
要在伯·亚弗拉的灰尘中打滚。
11 沙斐的居民啊,
你们将赤身露体,
被羞辱地掳去。
撒南的居民不敢出城,
伯·以薛在痛哭,
你们已失去它的庇护。
12 玛律的居民痛苦不堪,
渴望得到拯救,
因为耶和华已把灾难降到耶路撒冷的城门。
13 拉吉的居民啊,
用骏马套车逃命吧!
是你们首先唆使锡安城犯罪,
在你们身上看到了以色列的罪恶。
14 去向摩利设·迦特赠送告别礼物吧!
亚革悉人必令以色列诸王受骗上当。
15 玛利沙的居民啊,
我要使征服者到你们那里。
以色列的领袖[a]要躲到亚杜兰。

16 犹大人啊,你们要剃光头发,
为你们所爱的儿女悲伤;
要剃得如秃鹰一样光秃,
因为他们要被掳到远方。

Amplified Bible

Micah 1

Destruction in Israel and Judah

1The word of the Lord that came to Micah of Moresheth in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw [through divine revelation] concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.


Hear, O peoples, all of you;
Listen closely, O earth and all that is in it,
And let the Lord God be witness [giving a testimony of the judgment] against you,
The Lord from His holy temple [in the heavens].

For behold, the Lord is coming down from His place
He shall come down and tread [in judgment] on the high places of the earth.

The mountains shall melt under Him
And the valleys shall be split
Like wax before the fire,
Like waters poured down a steep place.

All this is because of the rebellion and apostasy of [a]Jacob
And for the sins of the house of Israel (the Northern Kingdom).
What is the rebellion and apostasy of Jacob?
Is it not [the abandonment of God in order to worship the idols of] Samaria?
What are the high places [of idolatry] in Judah (the Southern Kingdom)?
Are they not Jerusalem [the capital and center of corruption]?

Therefore I [the Lord] shall make Samaria a [b]heap of ruins [and of stones and arable land] in the open country,
A place for planting vineyards;
And I will pour her stones down into the ravine
And lay bare her foundations.

All her idols shall be broken in pieces,
All her earnings [from her idolatry] shall be burned with fire,
And all her images I shall make desolate;
For from the earnings of a prostitute she collected them,
And to the earnings of a prostitute they shall return.


Because of this I [Micah] must lament (mourn over with expressions of grief) and wail,
I must go barefoot and naked [without outer garments as if robbed];
I must wail like the jackals
And lament [with a loud, mournful cry] like the ostriches.

For Samaria’s wound is incurable,
For it has come to Judah;
The enemy has reached the gate of my people,
Even to Jerusalem.
10 
[c]Announce it not in Gath [in Philistia],
Weep not at all [and in this way betray your grief to Gentiles];
In Beth-le-aphrah (House of Dust) roll in the dust [among your own people].
11 
Go on your way [into exile—stripped of beauty, disarmed], inhabitants of Shaphir (Beautiful), in shameful nakedness.
The inhabitant of Zaanan (Go Out) does not go out [of the house];
The wailing of Beth-ezel (House of Removal) will take away from you its support.
12 
For the inhabitant of Maroth (Bitterness)
Writhes in pain [at its losses] and waits anxiously for good,
Because a catastrophe has come down from the Lord
To the gate of Jerusalem.
13 
Harness the chariot to the team of horses [to escape the invasion],
O inhabitant of Lachish—
She was the beginning of sin
To the Daughter of Zion (Jerusalem)—
Because in you were found
The rebellious acts of Israel.
14 
Therefore you will give parting gifts
On behalf of Moresheth-gath (Micah’s home);
The houses of Achzib (Place of Deceit) will become a deception
To the kings of Israel.
15 
Moreover, I will bring on you
The one who takes possession,
O inhabitant of Mareshah (Prominent Place).
The glory (nobility) of Israel will enter Adullam [seeking refuge].
16 
Make yourself bald [in mourning]—shave off your hair
For the children of your delight;
Remain as bald as the eagle,
For your children will be taken from you into exile.

  1. Micah 1:5 I.e. an alternate name for Israel. The capital city was Samaria.
  2. Micah 1:6 Omri king of Israel (the Northern Kingdom—the ten tribes) purchased the hill on which he built Samaria, his capital city, for two talents of silver. It served both as a center for the worship of idols and as the capital of Israel until it was captured by Sargon king of Assyria in 721 b.c. This victory marked the end of the kingdom of the ten tribes.
  3. Micah 1:10 Micah uses a play on words as he denounces the cities in vv 10-15.
