Micah 2:2-4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

They want fields, so they take them.
    They want houses, so they take them.
They cheat a man
    and take his house and his land.

The Lord’s Plans to Punish the People

That is why the Lord says:
“Look, I am planning trouble against this family.
    You will not be able to save yourselves.[a]
You will stop being proud,
    because bad times are coming.
Then people will sing songs about you.
    They will sing this sad song:
‘We are ruined!
    The Lord took away our land and gave it to other people.
Yes, he took my land away from me.
    He has divided our fields among our enemies.


  1. Micah 2:3 save yourselves Literally, “take your necks off it.”
