Mi 7:1Woe is me! For I am like gatherings of summer fruit / And like gleanings of the vintage; / There is no cluster to eat, / Nor first-ripe fig, which my soul desires.

Mi 7:2The godly man has perished from the land, / And there is none upright among men; / They all lie in wait for bloodshed; / They each hunt their brother with a net.

Mi 7:3Both hands are set upon evil, to do it well: / The prince asks for it, / And the judge agrees, for a reward, / And the great man, he utters the evil desire of his soul, / And they weave it together.

Mi 7:4The best one among them is like a brier; / The most upright is worse than a thorn hedge. / The day of your watchmen, your visitation, has come; / Now will be their confounding.

Mi 7:5Do not trust in a neighbor; / Do not put your confidence in a friend; / Keep the doors of your mouth / From her who lies in your bosom.

Mi 7:6For the son treats the father like a fool; / The daughter rises up against her mother, / The daughter-in-law, against her mother-in-law; / A man’s enemies are the men of his own house.

Mi 7:7But as for me, I will look for Jehovah; / I will wait for the God of my salvation; / My God will hear me.

Mi 7:8Do not rejoice against me, O my enemy; / When I fall, I will rise up; / When I sit in the darkness, / Jehovah will be a light to me.

Mi 7:9I will bear the indignation of Jehovah — / For I have sinned against Him — / Until He plead my cause / And execute justice for me; / He will bring me forth into the light; / I will see His righteousness.

Mi 7:10Then my enemy will see / And shame will cover / Her who said to me, / Where is Jehovah your God? / My eyes will see her: / At that time she will become trampled / Like mud in the streets.

Mi 7:11A day for building your walls! / In that day the decree will be far away;

Mi 7:12In that day they will come even unto you / From Assyria and from the cities of Egypt, / And from Egypt even to the River, / And from sea to sea and mountain to mountain.

Mi 7:13But the land will become desolate / Because of the inhabitants in it, due to the fruit of their doings.

Mi 7:14Shepherd Your people with Your rod, / The flock of Your inheritance, / Who dwell alone in the forest / In the midst of Carmel; / Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead / As in the days of old.

Mi 7:15As in the days of your going forth out from the land of Egypt, / I will show you wonders.

Mi 7:16The nations will see and be ashamed / Of all their might; / They will put the hand over the mouth; / Their ears will be deaf.

Mi 7:17They will lick the dust like a serpent; / Like crawling things of the earth, / They will come quivering from their enclosed places; / To Jehovah our God / They will turn in fear and be afraid because of You.

Mi 7:18Who is a God like You, / Pardoning iniquity / And passing over the transgression / Of the remnant of His inheritance? / He does not retain His anger forever, / For He delights in lovingkindness.

Mi 7:19He will again have compassion on us; / He will tread our iniquities underfoot. / And You will cast into the depths of the sea / All their sins.

Mi 7:20You will perform truth to Jacob, / And lovingkindness to Abraham, / Which You have sworn to our fathers / From the days of old.
