Micah 2:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Israel’s Sins Are Condemned

How horrible it will be for those who invent trouble
    and work out plans for disaster while in bed.
When the morning dawns, they carry out their plans
    because they are able to.
They desire other people’s fields, so they seize them.
They desire people’s houses, so they take them.
    They cheat a man and his family,
        a man and his inheritance.

So this is what the Lord says:

I’m planning a disaster to punish your family.
    You won’t be able to rescue yourselves.
    You will no longer be able to walk proudly.
        This will be a time of disaster.

Micah 2:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

Human Plans and God’s Plans

Woe to those who plan iniquity,
    to those who plot evil on their beds!
At morning’s light they carry it out
    because it is in their power to do it.
They covet fields and seize them,
    and houses, and take them.
They defraud people of their homes,
    they rob them of their inheritance.

Therefore, the Lord says:

“I am planning disaster against this people,
    from which you cannot save yourselves.
You will no longer walk proudly,
    for it will be a time of calamity.
