Micah 2:2; Micah 2:8–9

They covet fields and nseize them,

and houses, and take them away;

they oppress a man and his house,

a man and his inheritance.


But lately ymy people have risen up as an enemy;

you strip the rich robe from those who pass by trustingly

with no thought of war.1

The women of my people you drive out

from their delightful houses;

from their young children you take away

my splendor forever.
