Micah is sad for the people in Israel and Judah
I will walk about without shoes or clothes.
I will scream like a wild dog,
and I will cry like a bird in the night.
And the same will happen also to Judah's people.
The enemies have already reached the gates of my people, that is, Jerusalem itself.
Do not even weep there.
But you people at Beth-Leaphrah,
roll on the ground to show how sad you are.
Your enemies will not let you wear any clothes while they take you away.
So you will be ashamed.
The people who live in Zaanan will be afraid to leave their city.
The people at Beth-Ezel will cry because nobody comes to help them.
They were waiting and hoping for something good.
But the Lord sent only something bad.
He brought trouble even to the gates of Jerusalem.
You were the first people in Judah to do what is wrong.
You are exactly like Israel's people, because, like them, you refused to obey God.
because they must go away.
The houses in Akzib town will disappoint the kings of Israel.
to fight your town. And it will win.
And Israel's leaders will need to hide at Adullam.
Make yourselves bald like vultures,
because you will be very sad.
Your enemies will take your children away.
They will take your children, whom you love so much, away to another country!
