Micah 22 They covet fields and seize them, and houses and take them away; they oppress and crush a man and his house, a man and his inheritance. 3 Therefore thus says the Lord: Behold, against this family I am planning a disaster from which you cannot remove your necks, nor will you be able to walk erect; for it will be an evil time. 4 In that day shall they take up a parable against you and wail with a doleful and bitter lamentation and say, We are utterly ruined and laid waste! changes the portion of my people. How He removes it from me! He divides our fields . 5 Therefore you shall have no one to cast a line by lot upon a plot in the assembly of the Lord. 6 Do not preach, say the prophesying false prophets; one should not babble and harp on such things; disgrace will not overtake us . 7 O house of Jacob, shall it be said, Is the Spirit of the Lord restricted, impatient, and shortened? Or are these His doings? Do not My words do good to him who walks uprightly? 8 But lately (yesterday) My people have stood up as an enemy . Off from the garment you strip the cloak of those who pass by in secure confidence of safety and are averse to war. 9 The women of My people you cast out from their pleasant houses; from their young children you take away My glory forever. 10 Arise and depart, for this is not the rest , because of uncleanness that works destruction, even a sharp and grievous destruction. 11 If a man walking in a spirit and in falsehood should lie and say, I will prophesy to you of wine and strong drink, O Israel, he would even be the acceptable prophet of this people! 12 I will surely gather all of you, O Jacob; I will surely collect the remnant of Israel. I will bring them together like sheep in a fold, like a flock in the midst of their pasture. They shall swarm with men and hum with much noise. 13 The Over and over again the prophets unveiled the full dimensions of God's judgment and salvation. God must punish His rebellious people but will afterward redeem them. Israel will be carried into captivity, yet a remnant will return. The Messiah, the One who breaks open the way, will lead them back home, and will restore the kingdom of David.Breaker will go up before them. They will break through, pass in through the gate and go out through it, and their King will pass on before them, the Lord at their head.
