    (Should this be said, house of Jacob?)
        “Is the Lord’s patience cut short? Are these his deeds?”
            Don’t my words help the one who behaves righteously?

Micah 2:7X

is this what the house of Ya‘akov says?

Adonai has not grown impatient,
and these things are not his doings.
“Rather, my words do only good
to anyone living uprightly.

Micah 2:7X

Descendants of Jacob,
    is it right for you to claim
that the Lord did what he did
    because he was angry?
Doesn’t he always bless
    those who do right?

Micah 2:7X

O thou [that art] named the house of Jacob, Is Jehovah impatient? are these his doings? Do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?

But people of Jacob,
    I must say these things.
The Lord is losing his patience
    because of the bad things you did.
If you lived right,
    I could say nice words to you.

Micah 2:7X

Should this be said, O house of Jacob?
    Has the Lord grown impatient?
    Are these his deeds?
Do not my words do good
    to him who walks uprightly?

But I must say this, ·people [L house] of Jacob:
    ·The Lord is becoming angry [or Does not the Lord grow impatient…?] about what you have done.
·My words are welcome [or Are not my words good…?]
    to the person who ·does what is right [L walks uprightly].

Micah 2:7X

Do you think the people of Israel are under a curse? Has the Lord lost his patience? Would he really do such things? Doesn't he speak kindly to those who do right?”

Micah 2:7X

House of Jacob, should it be asked,
“Is the Spirit of the Lord impatient?
Are these the things He does?”

Should this be said, O house of Jacob?
    Is the patience of Yahweh shortened?
    Are these his deeds?
Are my words not pleasing
    to him who walks upright?

Micah 2:7X

Is that the right reply for you to make, O House of Jacob? Do you think the Spirit of the Lord likes to talk to you so roughly? No! His threats are for your good, to get you on the path again.

Micah 2:7X

6-7 “Don’t preach,” say the preachers.
    “Don’t preach such stuff.
Nothing bad will happen to us.
    Talk like this to the family of Jacob?
Does God lose his temper?
    Is this the way he acts?
Isn’t he on the side of good people?
    Doesn’t he help those who help themselves?”

“Is it being said, O house of Jacob:
‘Is the Spirit of the Lord impatient?
Are these His doings?’

To the one walking uprightly?

Micah 2:7X

But I must say this, people of Jacob:
    The Lord is becoming angry about what you have done.
My words are welcome
    to the person who does what is right.

Micah 2:7X

Does the family of Jacob say,
‘The Lord’s patience can’t be exhausted—
he would never do such things’?
To be sure, my commands bring a reward
for those who obey them,

Micah 2:7X

People of Jacob, should others say,
    “The Lord isn’t angry with us.
    He doesn’t do things like that”?

The Lord replies, “What I promise brings good things
    to those who lead honest lives.

Micah 2:7X

You descendants of Jacob, should it be said,
    “Does the Lord become impatient?
    Does he do such things?”

“Do not my words do good
    to the one whose ways are upright?

You who are named the house of Jacob:
“Is the Spirit of the Lord restricted?
Are these His doings?

To him who walks uprightly?

Should it be said, O people of Jacob: “Is the Spirit of the Lord angry? Would He do such things? Do not My Words do good to the one whose way is right and good?

Micah 2:7X

Should you talk that way, O family of Israel?
    Will the Lord’s Spirit have patience with such behavior?
If you would do what is right,
    you would find my words comforting.

        to the ones who uprightly follow My fair path?

Shall it be said, O house of Jacob:
    “Is Yahweh’s Spirit angry?
    Are these his doings?
    Don’t my words do good to him who walks blamelessly?”

Micah 2:7X

saith the house of Jacob. Whether the Spirit of the Lord is abridged, either such be the thoughts of him? Whether my words be not good, with him that goeth rightly? (O house of Jacob, is the Spirit of the Lord abridged, that is, is his patience at an end, or do such things be his thoughts? Be my words not good, to him who goeth uprightly?)

Micah 2:7X

Doth the house of Jacob say, `Hath the Spirit of Jehovah been shortened? Are these His doings?' Do not My words benefit the people that is walking uprightly?
