Micah 3:9-12 World English Bible (WEB)

Please listen to this, you heads of the house of Jacob,
    and rulers of the house of Israel,
    who abhor justice,
    and pervert all equity.
10 They build up Zion with blood,
    and Jerusalem with iniquity.
11 Her leaders judge for bribes,
    and her priests teach for a price,
    and her prophets of it tell fortunes for money:
yet they lean on Yahweh, and say,
    “Isn’t Yahweh among us?
    No disaster will come on us.”
12 Therefore Zion for your sake will be plowed like a field,
    and Jerusalem will become heaps of rubble,
    and the mountain of the temple like the high places of a forest.

Micah 3:9-12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Now hear this, heads of the house of Jacob
And rulers of the house of Israel,
Who abhor justice
And twist everything that is straight,
10 Who build Zion with bloodshed
And Jerusalem with violent injustice.
11 Her leaders pronounce judgment for a bribe,
Her priests instruct for a price
And her prophets divine for money.
Yet they lean on the Lord saying,
Is not the Lord in our midst?
Calamity will not come upon us.”
12 Therefore, on account of you
Zion will be plowed as a field,
Jerusalem will become a heap of ruins,
And the mountain of the [a]temple will become high places of a forest.
