Micah 1:2 - 1:7

Hear, O peoples, all of you;
Give heed, O earth, as well as its fullness,
And let Lord Yahweh be a witness against you,
The Lord from His holy temple.
For behold, Yahweh is going forth from His place.
He will come down and tread on the high places of the earth.
The mountains will melt under Him,
And the valleys will be split,
Like wax before the fire,
Like water poured down a steep place.
All this is for the transgression of Jacob
And for the sins of the house of Israel.
What is the transgression of Jacob?
Is it not Samaria?
What is the high place of Judah?
Is it not Jerusalem?
So I will make Samaria a heap of ruins in the field,
Planting places for a vineyard.
And I will pour her stones down into the valley
And will lay bare her foundations.
And all of her graven images will be smashed,
And all of her earnings will be burned with fire
And all of her idols I will make desolate,
For she collected them from a harlot’s earnings,
And to the earnings of a harlot they will return.
