Micah 3:1-5

View Full Chapter

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.
