Micah 3:1-4 World English Bible (WEB)

I said,

“Please listen, you heads of Jacob,
    and rulers of the house of Israel:
    Isn’t it for you to know justice?
You who hate the good,
    and love the evil;
    who tear off their skin,
    and their flesh from off their bones;
    who also eat the flesh of my people,
    and flay their skin from off them,
    and break their bones,
    and chop them in pieces, as for the pot,
    and as flesh within the cauldron.
Then they will cry to Yahweh,
    but he will not answer them.
Yes, he will hide his face from them at that time,
    because they made their deeds evil.”

Micah 3:1-4 New International Version (NIV)

Leaders and Prophets Rebuked

Then I said,

“Listen, you leaders of Jacob,
    you rulers of Israel.
Should you not embrace justice,
    you who hate good and love evil;
who tear the skin from my people
    and the flesh from their bones;
who eat my people’s flesh,
    strip off their skin
    and break their bones in pieces;
who chop them up like meat for the pan,
    like flesh for the pot?

Then they will cry out to the Lord,
    but he will not answer them.
At that time he will hide his face from them
    because of the evil they have done.
