The Lord’s Plans to Punish the People
3 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.
4 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.
5 So we will not be able to measure the land
and divide it among the Lord’s people.’”
- Micah 2:3 save yourselves Literally, “take your necks off it.”
