Micah 2:1–5

Woe to the Oppressors of God’s People

2 Woe to those who plan wickedness

because they have power in their hands.

They covet fields and seize them,

and houses, and they take them away.

They oppress a man and his house;

a man and his inheritance.

Therefore, thus says Yahweh: Look! I am planning disaster against this family from which you will not be able to remove your necks. You will not walk proudly, for it is a time of disaster.

In that day they will raise a proverb against you,

and will wail a bitter wailing, saying,

Therefore you will have no one casting a line by lot

in the assembly of Yahweh.
