|彌迦書-Micah 第 1 章|
The word of Jehovah which came to Micah the Morashtite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.
Hear, all you peoples, And give heed, O earth and its fullness; And let the Lord Jehovah be a witness against you, The Lord from His holy temple.
For Jehovah is about to come forth from His place, And He will come down and tread upon the high places of the earth.
And the mountains will be melted under Him, And the valleys will be cleft, Like wax before fire, Like water poured down a slope.
All this is because of the transgression of Jacob And because of the sins of the house of Israel. What is the transgression of Jacob? Is it not Samaria? And what are the high places of Judah? Are they not Jerusalem?
Therefore I will make Samaria A heap of ruins in a field, Places for the planting of vineyards; And I will pour her stones down into the valley And uncover her foundations.
And all her engraved idols will be smashed, And all her gifts for harlotry will be burned with fire, And all her images I will make a desolation; For from the harlot's hire she has gathered them, And unto the harlot's hire they will return.
Because of this I will wail and howl; I will go about barefoot and naked. I will make a wailing like the jackals And a lamentation like the ostriches.
For her wound is incurable, For it has come as far as Judah; It reaches as far as the gate of my people, As far as Jerusalem.
Do not declare it in Gath; Do not weep at all. In Beth-le-aphrah I rolled myself in the dust.
Pass away on your own, O inhabitress of Shaphir, In shameful nakedness; The inhabitress of Zaanan Has not gone forth; The wailing of Beth-ezel Will take away from you the staying of the calamity.
For the inhabitress of Maroth Waits in pain for good, For evil has come down from Jehovah To the gate of Jerusalem.
Bind the chariot to the steeds, O inhabitress of Lachish. She was the beginning of sin to the daughter of Zion, For the transgressions of Israel were found in you.
Therefore you will give a parting gift To Moresheth-gath: The houses of Achzib will be a deception To the kings of Israel.
Further, I will bring upon you the possessor, O inhabitress of Mareshah; The glory of Israel will come As far as Adullam.
Shave yourself and cut off your hair For the children of your delights; Enlarge your baldness like an eagle, For they have gone from you into captivity.
