Bible: Mic 3:1-4

God Will Judge Judah’s Sinful Leaders

3:1 I said,

Listen, you leaders 1  of Jacob,

you rulers of the nation 2  of Israel!

You ought to know what is just, 3 

3:2 yet you 4  hate what is good, 5 

and love what is evil. 6 

You flay my people’s skin 7 

and rip the flesh from their bones. 8 

3:3 You 9  devour my people’s flesh,

strip off their skin,

and crush their bones.

You chop them up like flesh in a pot 10 

like meat in a kettle.

3:4 Someday these sinners will cry to the Lord for help, 11 

but he will not answer them.

He will hide his face from them at that time,

because they have done such wicked deeds.”
