Micah 2:2-4 New Century Version (NCV)

They want fields, so they take them;
    they want houses, so they take them away.
They cheat people to get their houses;
    they rob them even of their property.

That is why the Lord says:

“Look, I am planning trouble against such people,
    and you won’t be able to save yourselves.
You will no longer walk proudly,
    because it will be a terrible time.
At that time people will make fun of you
    and sing this sad song about you:
‘We are completely ruined;
    the Lord has taken away my people’s land.
Yes, he has taken it away from me
    and divided our fields among our enemies!’”

Micah 2:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

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.
In that day people will ridicule you;
    they will taunt you with this mournful song:
‘We are utterly ruined;
    my people’s possession is divided up.
He takes it from me!
    He assigns our fields to traitors.’”
