Micah, chapter 1, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 1


   1 Verbum Domini, quod factum est ad Michaeam Morasthiten in diebus Ioatham, Achaz, Ezechiae regum Iudae, quod vidit super Samariam et Ierusalem.
   2 Audite, populi omnes, et attendat terra et plenitudo eius; et sit Dominus Deus vobis in testem, Dominus de templo sancto suo.
   3 Quia ecce Dominus egreditur de loco suo et descendet et calcabit super excelsa terrae;
   4 et liquescent montes subtus eum, et valles scindentur sicut cera a facie ignis, sicut aquae, quae decurrunt in praeceps.
   5 In scelere Iacob omne istud et in peccatis domus Israel. Quod scelus Iacob? Nonne Samaria? Et quae excelsa Iudae? Nonne Ierusalem?
   6 Et ponam Samariam in acervum lapidum, in agrum, ubi plantatur vinea; et detraham in vallem lapides eius et fundamenta eius revelabo.
   7 Et omnia sculptilia eius concidentur, et omnes mercedes eius comburentur igne, et omnia idola eius ponam in perditionem, quia de mercedibus meretricis congregata sunt et usque ad mercedem meretricis revertentur.
   8 Super hoc plangam et ululabo; vadam spoliatus et nudus, faciam planctum velut thoum et luctum quasi struthionum,
   9 quia desperata est plaga eius, quia venit usque ad Iudam, tetigit portam populi mei usque ad Ierusalem.
   10 In Geth nolite annuntiare, lacrimis ne ploretis, in Bethleaphra in pulvere volutamini.
   11 Et transite vobis, habitatores Saphir, confusi ignominia; non sunt egressi habitatores Saanan. Planctus Bethesel auferet a vobis mansionem suam.
   12 Profecto trement de bono habitatores Maroth, quia descendit malum a Domino in portam Ierusalem.
   13 Iungite quadrigae equos, habitatores Lachis; principium peccati est filiae Sion, quia in te inventa sunt scelera Israel.
   14 Propterea dabis dimissionem super Moresethgeth. Domus Achzib in deceptionem regibus Israel.
   15 Adhuc expugnatorem adducam tibi, quae habitas in Maresa; usque Odollam veniet gloria Israel.
   16 Decalvare et tondere super filios deliciarum tuarum; dilata calvitium tuum sicut aquila, quoniam captivi ducti sunt ex te.

King James Version

   1 The word of the LORD that came to Micah the Morasthite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.
   2 Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple.
   3 For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth.
   4 And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.
   5 For the transgression of Jacob is all this, and for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the transgression of Jacob? is it not Samaria? and what are the high places of Judah? are they not Jerusalem?
   6 Therefore I will make Samaria as an heap of the field, and as plantings of a vineyard: and I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the foundations thereof.
   7 And all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate: for she gathered it of the hire of an harlot, and they shall return to the hire of an harlot.
   8 Therefore I will wail and howl, I will go stripped and naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons, and mourning as the owls.
   9 For her wound is incurable; for it is come unto Judah; he is come unto the gate of my people, even to Jerusalem.
   10 ¶ Declare ye it not at Gath, weep ye not at all: in the house of Aphrah roll thyself in the dust.
   11 Pass ye away, thou inhabitant of Saphir, having thy shame naked: the inhabitant of Zaanan came not forth in the mourning of Beth-ezel; he shall receive of you his standing.
   12 For the inhabitant of Maroth waited carefully for good: but evil came down from the LORD unto the gate of Jerusalem.
   13 O thou inhabitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift beast: she is the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee.
   14 Therefore shalt thou give presents to Moresheth-gath: the houses of Achzib shall be a lie to the kings of Israel.
   15 Yet will I bring an heir unto thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah: he shall come unto Adullam the glory of Israel.
   16 Make thee bald, and poll thee for thy delicate children; enlarge thy baldness as the eagle; for they are gone into captivity from thee.
