Micah, Chapter 6

6:1 Hear+ now what Yahweh says: Arise, contend before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice.
6:2 Hear, O you+ mountains, Yahweh's controversy, and you+ enduring foundations of the earth; for Yahweh has a controversy with his people, and he will contend with Israel.
6:3 O my people, what have I done to you? And in what have I wearied you? Testify against me.
6:4 For I brought you up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of slaves; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
6:5 O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab devised, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him; [remember] from Shittim to Gilgal, that you+ may know the righteous acts of Yahweh.
6:6 How shall I come before Yahweh, and bow myself before the high God? Shall I come before him with burnt-offerings, with calves a year old?
6:7 Will Yahweh be pleased with thousands of rams, [or] with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
6:8 He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does Yahweh require of you, but to do justly, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
6:9 The voice of Yahweh cries to the city, and wisdom will see your name: hear+ the rod, and who has appointed it.
6:10 Are there yet treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and a scant measure that is abhorred?
6:11 Shall I be pure with wicked balances, and with a bag of deceitful weights?
6:12 For its rich men are full of violence, and its inhabitants have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
6:13 Therefore I also have struck you with a grievous wound; I have made you desolate because of your sins.
6:14 You will eat, but not be satisfied; and your humiliation will be in the midst of you: and you will put away, but will not save; and that which you save I will give up to the sword.
6:15 You will sow, but will not reap; you will tread the olives, but you will not anoint with oil; and the vintage, but will not drink the wine.
6:16 For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and you+ walk in their counsels; that I may make you a desolation, and her inhabitants a hissing: and you+ will bear the reproach of my people.
