Micah 1:2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

I. Oracles of Punishment

Hear, O peoples, all of you,
    give heed, O earth, and all that is in it!
Let the Lord God be witness against you,
    the Lord from his holy temple![a]


  1. 1:2 The prophet summons all the peoples to hear the divine accusations against them. What follows in 1:2–3:12 is a series of prophecies of punishment addressed to the capital cities of both the Northern and Southern Kingdoms, Samaria and Jerusalem. The prophecies indict the leaders and main officials, including prophets. Because of the corruption and selfishness of their leaders, Samaria and Jerusalem will fall to their enemies.
