King James Version

Micah 1

1The word of the Lord that came to Micah the Morasthite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.

Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord God be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple.

For, behold, the Lord cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth.

And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.

For the transgression of Jacob is all this, and for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the transgression of Jacob? is it not Samaria? and what are the high places of Judah? are they not Jerusalem?

Therefore I will make Samaria as an heap of the field, and as plantings of a vineyard: and I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the foundations thereof.

And all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate: for she gathered it of the hire of an harlot, and they shall return to the hire of an harlot.

Therefore I will wail and howl, I will go stripped and naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons, and mourning as the owls.

For her wound is incurable; for it is come unto Judah; he is come unto the gate of my people, even to Jerusalem.

10 Declare ye it not at Gath, weep ye not at all: in the house of Aphrah roll thyself in the dust.

11 Pass ye away, thou inhabitant of Saphir, having thy shame naked: the inhabitant of Zaanan came not forth in the mourning of Bethezel; he shall receive of you his standing.

12 For the inhabitant of Maroth waited carefully for good: but evil came down from the Lord unto the gate of Jerusalem.

13 O thou inhabitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift beast: she is the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee.

14 Therefore shalt thou give presents to Moreshethgath: the houses of Achzib shall be a lie to the kings of Israel.

15 Yet will I bring an heir unto thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah: he shall come unto Adullam the glory of Israel.

16 Make thee bald, and poll thee for thy delicate children; enlarge thy baldness as the eagle; for they are gone into captivity from thee.

Mikka 1

1Mu mirembe Yuda gye yagenda efugibwa bakabaka bano: Yosamu, ne Akazi, ne Keezeekiya, Mikka eyali Omumolasuuti, yafuna obubaka obuva eri Mukama, obukwata ku kibuga Samaliya ne Yerusaalemi.

Muwulire mmwe abantu mwenna,
    muwulire mmwe ebintu byonna ebiri mu nsi, ne bonna abagirimu,
Mukama Ayinzabyonna asinziira mu yeekaalu ye entukuvu,
    ng’alina by’abalumiriza.
Mulabe, Mukama ajja ng’ava mu ggulu ku ntebe ye
    ng’akka ku nsi ng’atambulira ku nsozi waggulu.
N’ensozi zirisaanuukira wansi w’ebigere bye
    era n’ebiwonvu ne byatika ne bisaanuuka
ng’ebisenge by’emizindu by’enjuki ebyokeddwa omuliro,
    ng’amazzi g’ekiyiriro bwe gakulukuta ku lusozi nga gayirira ku bbangabanga.
Bino byonna biribeerawo olw’okwonoona kwa Yakobo,
    olw’ebibi by’ennyumba ya Isirayiri.
Ekibi kya Yakobo kye kiruwa?
    Si ye Samaliya?
Kifo ki ekigulumivu ekya Yuda?
    Si Yerusaalemi?

“Noolwekyo nzija kubetenta Samaliya ngifuule ebifunfugu,
    kifuuke nga ennimiro ey’okusimbamu emizabbibu.
Ndiyiwa amayinja gaakyo mu kiwonvu
    N’emisingi gyakyo ne ngireka nga gyasamye.
Bakatonda baakyo bonna be basinza, balisekulwasekulwa;
    ebintu byonna ebyaweebwayo ng’ebirabo mu yeekaalu biriggya omuliro;
    ndizikiriza bakatonda baakyo bonna be beekolera.
Ng’ebirabo ebyo bwe byafunibwa mu bwenzi,
    bwe bityo bwe biritwalibwa mu bwenzi ne bikozesebwa.”

Okukaaba n’Okukungubaga

Kyendiva nkaaba ne nkuba ebiwoobe,
    ne ntambula nga sambadde ngatto, era nga ndi bukunya.
Ndikaaba ng’ekibe,
    ne nkuba ebiwoobe ng’abaana b’ekiwuugulu.
Ekiwundu kye tekiwonyezeka,
    ne Yuda ky’alwadde.
Kituukidde ddala ku mulyango gw’abantu bange,
    ne ku Yerusaalemi yennyini.

Omulabe Asemberera Yerusaalemi

10 Temukibuulira mu Gaasi,
    temukaaba maziga n’akatono.
Mwevulungulire mu nfuufu
    mu Besuleyafula.
11 Muyiteewo nga muli bwereere nga muswadde,
    mmwe ababeera mu Safiri.
Ababeera mu Zanani
    tebalifuluma.
Beswezeeri ekuba ebiwoobe,
    kubanga tokyalinayo buddukiro.
12 Abo ab’omu Malosi bali mu kulumwa okw’amaanyi
    nga balindirira okubeerwa,
kubanga ekibonoobono kivudde eri Mukama,
    ne kituuka ne ku mulyango gwa Yerusaalemi.
13 Mwanguwe okusiba amagaali ku mbalaasi
    mmwe ababeera mu Lakisi.
Mmwe nsibuko y’ekibi
    mu Bawala ba Sayuuni,
kubanga ebibi bya Isirayiri byasangibwa mu mmwe.
14 Noolwekyo muligabira Molesesu eky’e Gaasi
    ebirabo ebimusiibula.
Ebibuga by’e Akuzibu birikakasibwa nga bya bulimba
    eri bakabaka ba Isirayiri.
15 Mmwe abantu b’omu Malesa,
    ndibasindikira alibawangula n’abafuga.
Oyo ekitiibwa kya Isirayiri
    alijja mu Adulamu.
16 Mukungubage, n’emitwe mugimwe
    olw’abaana bammwe be mwesiimisa;
mumwe enviiri zammwe nga mukungubaga, emitwe gyammwe gibe ng’egy’ensega,
    kubanga abaana bammwe balibaggyibwako ne batwalibwa mu buwaŋŋanguse.
