Micah 7:8-10

Israel's enemies will be ashamed

8 My enemy, do not be happy because I am in trouble.

7:8Verses 8-10 Here Micah speaks on behalf of Zion's people, as if they were one person.

I have fallen down, but I will get up.

I am in the dark, but the Lord will be a light to me.

9 I have not obeyed the Lord,

so he is angry with me.

He will continue to punish me,

until the time when he speaks for me.

Then he will make things right for me.

He will bring me out into the light.

He always does what is really right.

And I will see that then.

10 ‘Why does the Lord your God not help you?’ my enemies say to me.

They will see what God does for me.

Then they will be very ashamed.

And I will see the bad things that happen to them.

Soon other people will crush them and beat them.

Then they will be like wet ground in the streets under people's feet.
