← 約拿書 4   彌迦書 2 →

1 猶大約坦、亞哈斯、希西家在位的時候,摩利沙人彌迦得耶和華的默示,論撒瑪利亞耶路撒冷

2 萬民哪,你們都要!地和其上所有的,也都要側耳而耶和華從他的殿要見證你們的不是。

3 看哪,耶和華出了他的居所,降臨步行地的處。

4 在他以必消化,諸必崩裂,如蠟化在中,如坡。

5 這都因雅各罪過以色列家的惡。雅各罪過在哪裡呢?豈不是在撒瑪利亞麼?猶大的邱壇在哪裡呢?豈不是在耶路撒冷麼?

6 所以我必使撒瑪利亞變為田野的亂堆,又作為種葡萄之處;也必將她的石頭倒在谷中,露出根基來。

7 她一切雕刻的偶像必被打碎;她所得的財物必被燒;所有的偶像我必毀滅;因為是從妓女雇價所聚來的,後必歸為妓女的雇價。

8 先知說:因此我必大聲哀號,赤腳露體而行;又要呼號如野狗,哀鳴如鴕鳥。

9 因為撒瑪利亞的傷痕無法醫治,延及猶大耶路撒冷我民的城

10 不要在迦特報告這事,總不要哭泣;我在伯亞弗拉滾於灰塵之中。

11 沙斐的居民哪,你們要赤身蒙羞過去。撒南的居民不敢出來。伯以薛人的哀哭使你們無處可站。

12 瑪律的居民心甚憂急,切望得處,因為災禍從耶和華那裡臨到耶路撒冷的城

13 拉吉的居民哪,要用快馬套車;錫安民(原文是女子)的由你而起;以色列人罪過在你那裡顯出。

14 猶大啊,你要將禮物送摩利設迦特。亞革悉的眾族必用詭詐待以色列

15 瑪利沙的居民哪,我必使那奪取你的到你這裡;以色列的尊貴人(原文是榮耀)必到亞杜蘭。

16 猶大啊,要為你所喜愛的兒女剪除你的頭髮,使頭光禿,要大大地光禿,如同禿,因為他們都被擄去離開你。
