Micah 7


7:1 Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer
 fruits, as the grape-gleanings of the vintage: [there is] no
 cluster to eat: my soul desired the first ripe fruit.
7:2 The good [man] hath perished from the earth: and [there is]
 none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they
 hunt every man his brother with a net.
7:3 That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince
 asketh, and the judge [asketh] for a reward; and the great
 [man], he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.
7:4 The best of them [is] as a brier: the most upright [is
 sharper] than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen [and] thy
 visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity.
7:5 Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide:
 keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.
7:6 For the son dishonoreth the father, the daughter riseth up
 against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her
 mother-in-law; a man's enemies [are] the men of his own house.
7:7 Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God
 of my salvation: my God will hear me.
7:8 Rejoice not against me, O my enemy: when I fall, I shall
 arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD [will be] a light to
 me.
7:9 I will bear the indignation of the LORD, because I have
 sinned against him, until he shall plead my cause, and execute
 judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, [and] I
 shall behold his righteousness.
7:10 Then [she that is] my enemy shall see [it], and shame shall
 cover her who said to me, Where is the LORD thy God? my eyes
 shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of
 the streets.
7:11 [In] the day that thy walls are to be built, [in] that day
 shall the decree be far removed.
7:12 [In] that day [also] he shall come even to thee from
 Assyria, and [from] the fortified cities, and from the fortress
 even to the river, and from sea to sea, and [from] mountain to
 mountain.
7:13 Notwithstanding the land shall be desolate because of them
 that dwell in it, for the fruit of their doings.
7:14 Feed thy people with thy rod, the flock of thy heritage,
 who dwell solitarily [in] the wood, in the midst of Carmel: let
 them feed [in] Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old.
7:15 According to the days of thy departure from the land of
 Egypt will I show to him marvelous [things].
7:16 The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might:
 they shall lay [their] hand upon [their] mouth, their ears
 shall be deaf.
7:17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move
 out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be
 afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee.
7:18 Who [is] a God like to thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and
 passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he
 retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth [in]
 mercy.
7:19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he
 will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins
 into the depths of the sea.
7:20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, [and] the mercy to
 Abraham, which thou hast sworn to our fathers from the days of
 old.
