Micah 7
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Woe to me, for I have been as the gathering of summer and like gleanings of the vintage! There is no cluster to eat and my soul has craved the first fruit!

2The Holy One has perished from the Earth, and there is none upright among the children of men! All of them lay in ambush, and they hunt, each man, his brother for destruction

3Their hands are ready for evil and they do no good; the Ruler asks for gold and the Judge says, ”Give a bribe” and the Prince speaks the desire of his soul

4And they have rejected their goodness like a patch of cloth that a moth eats. The day of your Watchmen and of your salvation has come! From now on it shall be the house of their weeping

5You shall not believe your friends and you shall not trust your relatives, and keep the words of your mouth from your wife

6Because a son insults his father and a daughter rises against her mother and a daughter in law against her mother in law, and the enemies of a man are the children of his household

7But I shall look to LORD JEHOVAH and I shall wait for God my Savior, and my God shall hear me

8You shall not rejoice for me, my enemy; I have fallen, I rise again, and I sat in darkness, LORD JEHOVAH enlightens me!

9I shall endure the plague of LORD JEHOVAH because I have sinned against him, until he will judge my judgment and he will perform my vengeance, and he will bring me out to the light, and I shall see his righteousness

10And my enemy shall see and shall cover herself in shame, who was saying to me: ’where is LORD JEHOVAH your God?’ My eyes will see it, therefore she shall be trodden down like mud of the street

11That is the day to build your fences; that is the day that you shall be raised up!

12That is the day that your buyers will come that from Assyria and from the fortified cities, and from Tyre and unto the River and from the sea and unto the sea and unto Khor Mountain

13And the land shall be for destruction to its inhabitants because of the fruit of their works

14Shepherd your people with your rod and the sheep of your inheritance shall dwell by themselves as sheep within Karmela; they shall feed in Mathnin and in Galad like the days of antiquity

15And like the day in which they went out from the land of Egypt, I shall show them wonders

16And the nations shall see and they shall be ashamed of all their might; they shall put their hands on their mouths and their ears shall become deaf

17And they shall lick the dust like a serpent and like worms of the Earth they shall be provoked from their paths, and by LORD JEHOVAH our God they shall be shaken and they shall be afraid

18There is no God like you who forgives evil and passes over the sin of the remainder of his inheritance, and you do not hold a grudge to eternity because you have chosen grace

19Let us return, and he shall show compassion upon us, and he shall gather all our evil and he will cast all of our sins into the depths of the sea

20You shall give truth to Yaqob and grace to Abraham which you swore to our fathers from the days of antiquity
