MICAH 11:1 The word of the Lord that came to Micah of Moresheth in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem. The Coming Destruction2 Hear, you peoples, all of you;pay attention, O earth, and all that is in it,and let the Lord God be a witness against you,the Lord from his holy temple. 3 For behold, the Lord is coming out of his place,and will come down and tread upon the high places of the earth. 4 And the mountains will melt under him,and the valleys will split open,like wax before the fire,like waters poured down a steep place. 5 All this is for the transgression of Jacoband for the sins of the house of Israel.What is the transgression of Jacob?Is it not Samaria?And what is the high place of Judah?Is it not Jerusalem? 6 Therefore I will make Samaria a heap in the open country,a place for planting vineyards,and I will pour down her stones into the valleyand uncover her foundations. 7 All her carved images shall be beaten to pieces,all her wages shall be burned with fire,and all her idols I will lay waste,for from the fee of a prostitute she gathered them,and to the fee of a prostitute they shall return.
