Michea 1

1 Verbum Domini, quod factum est ad Michaeam Morasthiten in diebus Ioatham,Achaz, Ezechiae regum Iudae, quod vidit super Samariam et Ierusalem.
1 The word of the Lord that came to Micah the Moreshethite, in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw about Samaria and Jerusalem.
2 Audite, populi omnes,
et attendat terra et plenitudo eius;
et sit Dominus Deus vobis in testem,
Dominus de templo sancto suo.
2 All peoples, listen. And may the earth and its fullness pay attention. And may the Lord God be a witness to you, the Lord from his holy temple.
3 Quia ecce Dominus egreditur de loco suo
et descendet et calcabit
super excelsa terrae;
3 For behold, the Lord will go forth from his place. And he will descend, and he will trample over the high places of the earth.
4 et liquescent montes subtus eum,
et valles scindentur
sicut cera a facie ignis,
sicut aquae, quae decurrunt in praeceps.
4 And the mountains will be consumed under him, and the valleys will be torn apart, like wax before the face of fire, and like waters that rush swiftly downward.
5 In scelere Iacob omne istud
et in peccatis domus Israel.
Quod scelus Iacob?
Nonne Samaria?
Et quae excelsa Iudae?
Nonne Ierusalem?
5 All this is for the wickedness of Jacob and for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the wickedness of Jacob? Is it not Samaria? And what is the loftiness of Judah? Is it not Jerusalem?
6 Et ponam Samariam in acervum lapidum,
in agrum, ubi plantatur vinea;
et detraham in vallem lapides eius
et fundamenta eius revelabo.
6 And I will place Samaria like a pile of stones in the field, when a vineyard is planted. And I will pull down its stones into the valley, and I will reveal her foundations.
7 Et omnia sculptilia eius concidentur,
et omnes mercedes eius comburentur igne,
et omnia idola eius ponam in perditionem,
quia de mercedibus meretricis congregata sunt
et usque ad mercedem meretricis revertentur.
7 And all her graven images will be cut to pieces, and all her rewards will be burned with fire, and I will place all her idols in perdition. For they have been gathered together from the pay of a kept woman, and even to the pay of a kept woman, they will return.
8 Super hoc plangam et ululabo;
vadam spoliatus et nudus,
faciam planctum velut thoum
et luctum quasi struthionum,
8 I will lament and wail about this. I will go out despoiled and naked. I will make a howl like the dragons, and a mourning like the ostriches.
9 quia desperata est plaga eius,
quia venit usque ad Iudam,
tetigit portam populi mei
usque ad Ierusalem.
9 For her wound has been in despair. For it has come even to Judah. It has touched the gate of my people, even to Jerusalem.
10 In Geth nolite annuntiare,
lacrimis ne ploretis,
in Bethleaphra in pulvere volutamini.
10 Do not be willing to announce it in Gath; may you not lament with tears. In the house of Dust, besprinkle yourselves with dust.
11 Et transite vobis, habitatores Saphir,
confusi ignominia;
non sunt egressi habitatores Saanan.
Planctus Bethesel
auferet a vobis mansionem suam.
11 And cross over to your dwelling place, Beauty, bewildered by disgrace. She did not depart, who dwells at the place of departure. The House nearby, which remained firm by herself, will receive mourning from you.
12 Profecto trement de bono
habitatores Maroth,
quia descendit malum a Domino
in portam Ierusalem.
12 For she has been weakened in goodness, who dwells in bitterness. For disaster has descended from the Lord to the gate of Jerusalem.
13 Iungite quadrigae equos, habitatores Lachis;
principium peccati est filiae Sion,
quia in te inventa sunt scelera Israel.
13 A tumult of four-horse chariots has stupefied the inhabitants of Lachish. The beginning has been sin for the daughter of Zion, because in you have been found the evil deeds of Israel.
14 Propterea dabis dimissionem
super Moresethgeth.
Domus Achzib in deceptionem
regibus Israel.
14 Because of this, she will send emissaries to the inheritance of Gath: the house of Lying in order to deceive the kings of Israel.
15 Adhuc expugnatorem adducam tibi,
quae habitas in Maresa;
usque Odollam veniet
gloria Israel.
15 Nevertheless, I will lead an heir to you, who dwell in Mareshah: the glory of Israel will reach all the way to Adullam.
16 Decalvare et tondere
super filios deliciarum tuarum;
dilata calvitium tuum sicut aquila, quoniam captivi ducti sunt ex te.
16 Become bald and shaved for your delicate sons. Increase your baldness like the eagle. For they have been carried into captivity from you.
