New International Version

Micah 3:1-12

Leaders and Prophets Rebuked

1Then I said,

“Listen, you leaders of Jacob,

you rulers of Israel.

Should you not embrace justice,

2you who hate good and love evil;

who tear the skin from my people

and the flesh from their bones;

3who eat my people’s flesh,

strip off their skin

and break their bones in pieces;

who chop them up like meat for the pan,

like flesh for the pot?”

4Then they will cry out to the Lord,

but he will not answer them.

At that time he will hide his face from them

because of the evil they have done.

5This is what the Lord says:

“As for the prophets

who lead my people astray,

they proclaim ‘peace’

if they have something to eat,

but prepare to wage war against anyone

who refuses to feed them.

6Therefore night will come over you, without visions,

and darkness, without divination.

The sun will set for the prophets,

and the day will go dark for them.

7The seers will be ashamed

and the diviners disgraced.

They will all cover their faces

because there is no answer from God.”

8But as for me, I am filled with power,

with the Spirit of the Lord,

and with justice and might,

to declare to Jacob his transgression,

to Israel his sin.

9Hear this, you leaders of Jacob,

you rulers of Israel,

who despise justice

and distort all that is right;

10who build Zion with bloodshed,

and Jerusalem with wickedness.

11Her leaders judge for a bribe,

her priests teach for a price,

and her prophets tell fortunes for money.

Yet they look for the Lord’s support and say,

“Is not the Lord among us?

No disaster will come upon us.”

12Therefore because of you,

Zion will be plowed like a field,

Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble,

the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets.

Atongoria na Anabii Gũkũũmwo

13:1 Jer 5:5Ningĩ ngiuga atĩrĩ,

“Ta iguai, inyuĩ atongoria a Jakubu,

o inyuĩ aathani a nyũmba ya Isiraeli.

Githĩ mũtiagĩrĩirwo nĩkũmenya ũhoro wa gũtuanĩra ciira na kĩhooto.

23:2 Ezek 22:27No inyuĩ mũthũire maũndũ mega no mũkenda marĩa mooru;

inyuĩ mũnũraga andũ akwa ikonde,

na mũgathoora nyama mahĩndĩ-inĩ mao.

33:3 Thab 14:4; Zef 3:3Inyuĩ mũrĩĩaga nyama cia mĩĩrĩ ya andũ akwa,

mũkamonũra ikonde

na mũkoinanga mahĩndĩ mao tũcunjĩ;

O inyuĩ mũmatinangagia ta nyama cia gũkarangwo na rũgĩo,

o na ta nyama cia gũtherũkio na nyũngũ.”

4Hĩndĩ ĩyo magaakaĩra Jehova,

nowe ndakamacookeria.

Hĩndĩ ĩyo nĩakahitha ũthiũ wake kuuma kũrĩ o,

tondũ wa ũũru ũrĩa mekĩte.

53:5 Isa 3:12; Jer 4:10Jehova ekuuga atĩrĩ,

“Ha ũhoro wa anabii acio

mahĩtithagia andũ akwa,

mũndũ aamahe irio,

maanagĩrĩra makiugaga ‘thayũ,’

no angĩmaima irio,

makahaarĩria mbaara ya kũmũũkĩrĩra.

63:6 Isa 8:19-22; Amos 8:11Tondũ ũcio, ũtukũ nĩũkamũhubanĩria,

mwage kuona cioneki,

mũhubanĩrio nĩ nduma mwage ũguũrio.

Riũa nĩrĩgathũĩra anabii,

naguo mũthenya ũmatuĩkĩre nduma.

73:7 Mik 7:16; Alaw 13:45Ooni-maũndũ nĩmagaconoka,

nao aragũri maconorithio.

Othe nĩmakahumbĩra mothiũ mao,

tondũ gũtirĩ ũhoro magaacookerio nĩ Ngai.”

8No hakwa-rĩ, niĩ njiyũrĩtwo nĩ hinya,

na ngaiyũrwo nĩ Roho wa Jehova,

o na ngaiyũrwo nĩ kĩhooto na ũhoti,

nĩguo nyumbũrĩre Jakubu ũremi wake,

na nyumbũrĩre Isiraeli mehia make.

9Ta thikĩrĩriai, inyuĩ atongoria a nyũmba ya Jakubu,

o inyuĩ aathani a nyũmba ya Isiraeli,

inyuĩ mũmenaga kĩhooto,

na mũkoogomia maũndũ marĩa ma ma;

103:10 Jer 22:13; Ezek 22:27inyuĩ mwakaga Zayuni na ũiti wa thakame,

na mũgaaka Jerusalemu na waganu.

113:11 Isa 1:23; Jer 7:4Atongoria akuo matuaga ciira maahakwo,

athĩnjĩri-Ngai akuo marutanaga maarĩhwo,

na anabii akuo marathaga mohoro maheo mbeeca.

No rĩrĩ, megiritanagia na Jehova makoiga atĩrĩ,

“Githĩ Jehova ndakĩrĩ gatagatĩ-inĩ gaitũ?

Gũtirĩ ũũru ũngĩtũkora.”

12Nĩ tondũ wanyu-rĩ,

Zayuni gũgaaciimbwo ta mũgũnda,

Jerusalemu gũtuĩke hĩba ya mahiga,

nakĩo kĩrĩma kĩrĩa gĩakĩtwo hekarũ

gĩtuĩke kĩhumbu kĩmereirwo nĩ ihinga.
