彌迦書 1:1-16

1猶大約坦亞哈斯希西迦執政期間,耶和華把祂的話傳給了摩利沙彌迦。他看到了有關撒瑪利亞耶路撒冷的異象。

審判將臨

2萬民啊,

你們都要聽!

大地和地上的萬物啊,

你們要側耳傾聽!

主耶和華從祂的聖殿裡作證指控你們。

3看啊,耶和華離開祂的居所,

從天降臨,

腳踏大地的高處。

4群山在祂腳下熔化,

猶如火中的蠟;

山谷崩裂,

岩石如水沿山坡傾瀉。

5這一切都是因為雅各的叛逆,

以色列家的罪惡。

雅各的叛逆在哪裡呢?

豈不是在撒瑪利亞嗎?

猶大的邱壇在哪裡呢?

豈不是在耶路撒冷嗎?

6「所以,我耶和華要使撒瑪利亞淪為荒野的廢墟,

成為種葡萄的地方。

我要把她的石頭拋進山谷,

直到露出她的根基。

7她所有的神像都要被打碎,

她所得的淫資都要化為灰燼;

我要毀滅她的一切偶像。

她以淫資得來的偶像,

也要被用作妓女的淫資。」

先知的哀傷

8為此,我要痛哭哀號,

我要赤身光腳而行,

像豺狼哀嚎,

如鴕鳥悲鳴。

9因為撒瑪利亞的創傷無法救治,

已經禍及猶大

直逼我百姓的城門,直逼耶路撒冷

10不要在迦特宣揚,

也不要哭泣,

要在伯·亞弗拉的灰塵中打滾。

11沙斐的居民啊,

你們將赤身露體,

被羞辱地擄去。

撒南的居民不敢出城,

伯·以薛在痛哭,

你們已失去它的庇護。

12瑪律的居民痛苦不堪,

渴望得到拯救,

因為耶和華已把災難降到耶路撒冷的城門。

13拉吉的居民啊,

用駿馬套車逃命吧!

是你們首先唆使錫安城犯罪,

在你們身上看到了以色列的罪惡。

14去向摩利設·迦特贈送告別禮物吧!

亞革悉人必令以色列諸王受騙上當。

15瑪利沙的居民啊,

我要使征服者到你們那裡。

以色列的領袖1·15 以色列的領袖」希伯來文是「以色列的榮耀」。要躲到亞杜蘭

16猶大人啊,你們要剃光頭髮,

為你們所愛的兒女悲傷;

要剃得如禿鷹一樣光禿,

因為他們要被擄到遠方。

New International Reader's Version

Micah 1:1-16

1A message from the Lord came to Micah. He was from the town of Moresheth. The message came while Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah were kings of Judah. This is the vision Micah saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem. Here is what he said.

2Listen to me, all you nations!

Earth and everyone who lives in it, pay attention!

The Lord and King will be a witness against you.

The Lord will speak from his holy temple in heaven.

The Lord Will Judge Samaria and Jerusalem

3The Lord is about to come down

from his home in heaven.

He rules over even the highest places on earth.

4The mountains will melt under him

like wax near a fire.

The valleys will be broken apart

by water rushing down a slope.

5All this will happen because

Jacob’s people have done what is wrong.

The people of Israel

have committed many sins.

Who is to blame

for the wrong things Jacob has done?

Samaria!

Who is to blame for the high places

where Judah’s people worship other gods?

Jerusalem!

6So the Lord says,

“I will turn Samaria into a pile of trash.

It will become a place for planting vineyards.

I will dump its stones down into the valley.

And I will destroy it

down to its very foundations.

7All the statues of Samaria’s gods

will be broken to pieces.

All the gifts its people gave to temple prostitutes

will be burned with fire.

I will destroy all the statues of its gods.

Samaria collected gifts that were paid to temple prostitutes.

So the Assyrians will use the gifts

to pay their own temple prostitutes.”

Micah Weeps Over His People

8I will weep and mourn because Samaria will be destroyed.

I’ll walk around barefoot and naked.

I’ll bark like a wild dog.

I’ll hoot like an owl.

9Samaria’s plague can’t be healed.

The plague has spread to Judah.

It has spread right up to the gate of my people.

It has spread to Jerusalem itself.

10Don’t tell the people of Gath about it.

Don’t let them see you weep.

People in Beth Ophrah, roll in the dust.

11You who live in the town of Shaphir,

leave naked and in shame.

Those who live in Zaanan

won’t come out to help you.

The people in Beth Ezel will mourn.

They won’t be able to help keep you safe any longer.

12Those who live in Maroth will groan with pain

as they wait for help.

That’s because the Lord will bring trouble on them.

It will reach the very gate of Jerusalem.

13You who live in Lachish,

get your fast horses ready to pull their chariots.

You trust in military power.

Lachish was where sin began

for the people of Zion.

The wrong things Israel did

were also done by you.

14People of Judah, you might as well say goodbye

to Moresheth near Gath.

The town of Akzib won’t give any help

to the kings of Israel.

15An enemy will attack

you who live in Mareshah.

Israel’s nobles will have to run away

and hide in the cave of Adullam.

16The children you enjoy so much

will be taken away as prisoners.

So shave your heads and mourn.

Make them as bare as the head of a vulture.
