Micah 7:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

For the son belittles his father,
    the daughter rises up against her mother,
The daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,
    and your enemies are members of your household.

IV. Confidence in God’s Future

But as for me, I will look to the Lord,
    I will wait for God my savior;
    my God will hear me!
[a]Do not rejoice over me, my enemy![b]
    though I have fallen, I will arise;
    though I sit in darkness, the Lord is my light.


  1. 7:8–20 The book concludes with a collection of confident prayers for deliverance, affirmations of faith, and announcements of salvation. Most of these verses bear the marks of use in worship, and probably arose in the exilic or postexilic periods.
  2. 7:8–10 An individual, possibly personified Jerusalem, expresses confidence that the Lord will deliver her from her enemy (cf. Ps 23).
