New International Version

Micah 1

1The word of the Lord that came to Micah of Moresheth during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah—the vision he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.

Hear, you peoples, all of you,
    listen, earth and all who live in it,
that the Sovereign Lord may bear witness against you,
    the Lord from his holy temple.

Judgment Against Samaria and Jerusalem

Look! The Lord is coming from his dwelling place;
    he comes down and treads on the heights of the earth.
The mountains melt beneath him
    and the valleys split apart,
like wax before the fire,
    like water rushing down a slope.
All this is because of Jacob’s transgression,
    because of the sins of the people of Israel.
What is Jacob’s transgression?
    Is it not Samaria?
What is Judah’s high place?
    Is it not Jerusalem?

“Therefore I will make Samaria a heap of rubble,
    a place for planting vineyards.
I will pour her stones into the valley
    and lay bare her foundations.
All her idols will be broken to pieces;
    all her temple gifts will be burned with fire;
    I will destroy all her images.
Since she gathered her gifts from the wages of prostitutes,
    as the wages of prostitutes they will again be used.”

Weeping and Mourning

Because of this I will weep and wail;
    I will go about barefoot and naked.
I will howl like a jackal
    and moan like an owl.
For Samaria’s plague is incurable;
    it has spread to Judah.
It has reached the very gate of my people,
    even to Jerusalem itself.
10 Tell it not in Gath[a];
    weep not at all.
In Beth Ophrah[b]
    roll in the dust.
11 Pass by naked and in shame,
    you who live in Shaphir.[c]
Those who live in Zaanan[d]
    will not come out.
Beth Ezel is in mourning;
    it no longer protects you.
12 Those who live in Maroth[e] writhe in pain,
    waiting for relief,
because disaster has come from the Lord,
    even to the gate of Jerusalem.
13 You who live in Lachish,
    harness fast horses to the chariot.
You are where the sin of Daughter Zion began,
    for the transgressions of Israel were found in you.
14 Therefore you will give parting gifts
    to Moresheth Gath.
The town of Akzib[f] will prove deceptive
    to the kings of Israel.
15 I will bring a conqueror against you
    who live in Mareshah.[g]
The nobles of Israel
    will flee to Adullam.
16 Shave your head in mourning
    for the children in whom you delight;
make yourself as bald as the vulture,
    for they will go from you into exile.

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.
