Micah, chapter 6, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 6


   1 Audite, quae Dominus loqui tur: "Surge, contende iudicio coram montibus, et audiant colles vocem tuam".
   2 Audite, montes, iudicium Domini, et auscultate, fundamenta terrae; quia iudicium Domini cum populo suo, et cum Israel iudicio contendit.
   3 "Popule meus, quid feci tibi et quid molestus fui tibi? Responde mihi.
   4 Ego eduxi te de terra Aegypti et de domo servientium liberavi te et misi ante faciem tuam Moysen et Aaron et Mariam.
   5 Popule meus, memento, quaeso, quid cogitaverit Balac rex Moab, et quid responderit ei Balaam filius Beor, de Settim usque ad Galgalam, ut cognoscas iustitias Domini".
   6 "Quid dignum offeram Domino, dum curvo genu Deo excelso? Numquid offeram ei holocautomata et vitulos anniculos?
   7 Numquid placebunt Domino milia arietum, multa milia torrentium olei? Numquid dabo primogenitum meum pro scelere meo, fructum ventris mei pro peccato animae meae?".
   8 Indicatum est tibi, o homo, quid sit bonum, et quid Dominus quaerat a te: utique facere iudicium et diligere caritatem et sollicitum ambulare cum Deo tuo.
   9 Vox Domini ad civitatem clamat - et sapientia est timere nomen tuum -: "Audite, tribus et coetus civitatis!
   10 Numquid tolerabo batum iniquum et ephi minus maledictum?
   11 Numquid iustificabo stateram impiam et saccelli pondera dolosa?
   12 Quia divites eius repleti sunt iniquitate, et habitantes in ea loquebantur mendacium, et lingua eorum fraudulenta in ore eorum.
   13 Ego ergo coepi percutere te perditione super peccatis tuis.
   14 Tu comedes et non saturaberis, et sordes tuae in medio tui. Tu removebis et non salvabis; et, quos salvaveris, in gladium dabo.
   15 Tu seminabis et non metes, tu calcabis olivam et non ungeris oleo, mustum et non bibes vinum.
   16 Custodisti praecepta Amri et omne opus domus Achab; et ambulasti in voluntatibus eorum, ut darem te in perditionem et habitantes tuos in sibilum: et opprobrium populorum portabitis".

King James Version

   1 Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice.
   2 Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD'S controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the LORD hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel.
   3 O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? testify against me.
   4 For I brought thee up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of servants; and I sent before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
   5 O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim unto Gilgal; that ye may know the righteousness of the LORD.
   6 ¶ Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?
   7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
   8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
   9 The LORD'S voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.
   10 ¶ Are there yet the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is abominable?
   11 Shall I count them pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of deceitful weights?
   12 For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
   13 Therefore also will I make thee sick in smiting thee, in making thee desolate because of thy sins.
   14 Thou shalt eat, but not be satisfied; and thy casting down shall be in the midst of thee; and thou shalt take hold, but shalt not deliver; and that which thou deliverest will I give up to the sword.
   15 Thou shalt sow, but thou shalt not reap; thou shalt tread the olives, but thou shalt not anoint thee with oil; and sweet wine, but shalt not drink wine.
   16 ¶ For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I should make thee a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing: therefore ye shall bear the reproach of my people.
