7 from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. And he caused it
to be proclaimed and 'published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and
his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste any thing: 8 let them not feed, nor drink water: but let man and beast be covered with sack
cloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil 9 way, and from the violence that is in their hands. Who can tell if God will 10 turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not? And
God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented
of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not. 4
But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry. And he prayed unto the Lord, and said, I pray thee, O LORD, was not this my saying, 2 when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I
knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great 3 kindness, and repentest thee of the evil. Therefore now, V LORD, take, I 4 beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live. Then said the LORD, 3Doest thou well to be angry?
So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would 6 become of the city. And the Lord God prepared a 45 gourd, and made it to
come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.
But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote 8 the gourd that it withered. And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that
God prepared a 7 vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah,
that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die 9 than to live.-_And God said to Jonah, 8 Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd ? And he said, 'I
do well to be angry, even unto death. Then said the Lord, Thou hast 10 had pity on the gourd, for the which thou
hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which I came up in a night, and 11 perished in a night: and should not l' spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein
are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?

1 THE word of the LORD that came to Micah the Morasthite in the days of
Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw conce ning Samaria and Jerusalem.
12 HEAR, all ye people ; Hearken, O earth, and is all that therein is: And let the Lord God be witness against you,
The Lord from his holy temple. 3 For, behold, the Lord cometh forth out of his place,
And will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. 4 And the mountains shall be molten under him,
And the valleys shall be cleft,
And as the waters that are poured down 14 a steep place. 5 For the transgression of Jacob is all this,
And for the sins of the house of Israel.

14 Heb. a descent.
What is the transgression of Jacob?—is it not Samaria ?
And what are the high places of Judah ?--are they not Jerusaleın? 6 Therefore I will make Samaria as an heap of the field,
And as plantings of a vineyard :
And I will discover the foundations thereof.
And all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire,
Therefore I will wail and howl,
And mourning as the lowls. 9 For 2 her wound is incurable;
For it is come unto Judah;
He is come unto the gate of my people, even to Jerusalem. 10 Declare ye it not at Gath, weep ye not at all :
In the house of $ Aphrah roll thyself in the dust. 11 Pass ye away, 4 thou 5 inhabitant of Saphir, having thy shame naked:
The inhabitant of 6 Zaanan came not forth
In the mourning of 7 Beth-ezel, he shall receive of you his standing. 12 For the inhabitant of Maroth waited carefully for good :
But evil came down from the Lord unto the gate of Jerusalem. 13 O thou inhabitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift beast :
She is the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion:
For the transgressions of Israel were found in thee. 14 Therefore shalt thou give presents to Moresheth-gath:
The houses of 10 Achzib shall be a lie to the kings of Israel. 15 Yet will I bring an heir unto thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah :
11 He shall come unto Adullam, the glory of Israel.
Enlarge thy baldness as the eagle;
WOE to them that devise iniquity,
Because it is in the power of their hand.
And houses, and take them away:
So they 12 oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage. 3 Therefore thus saith the LORD;
Behold, against this family do I devise an evil,
Neither shall ye go haughtily-for this time is evil. 4 In that day shall one take up a parable against you,
And lament 13 with a dolefúl lamentation,
14 Turning away he hath divided our fields.
In the congregation of the LORD.

6 12 Prophesy ye not, say they to them that prophesy:
They shall not prophesy to them,
That they shall not take shame. 7 0 thou that art named the house of Jacob,
Is the spirit of the LORD S straitened ? are these his doings?
Do not my words do good to him that walketh 4 uprightly? 8 Even 5 of late my people is risen up as an enemy:
Ye pull off the robe with the garment
From them that pass by securely as men averse from war. 9 The 7 women of my people hare ye cast out from their pleasant houses;
From their children have ye taken away my glory for ever. 10 Arise ye, and depart—for this is not your rest :
Because it is polluted, it shall destroy you,
Even with a sore destruction. 11 If a man 8 walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie,
Saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink;
He shall even be the prophet of this people.
I will surely gather the remnant of Israel;
They shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. 13 The breaker is come up before them:
They have broken up, and have passed through the gate,
3 AND I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob,
And ye princes of the house of Israel;
Is it not for you to know judgment? 2 Who hate the good, and love the evil;
Who pluck off their skin from off them,
And their flesh from off their bones; 3 Who also eat the flesh of my people,
And flay their skin from off them;
And as flesh within the caldron.
He will even hide his face from them at that time,
As they have behaved themselves ill in their doings. 5 Thus saith the LORD,
Concerning the prophets that make my people err,
And he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him: 6 Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision;
And it shall be dark unto you, 10 that ye shall not divine;
And the day shall be dark over them.
Yea, they shall all cover their li lips-for there is no answer of God 8 But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD,
And of judgment, and of might,
Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, And princes of the house of Israel, i Or, Prophesy not as 4 Heb. upright? 7 Or, wives. 9 Heb. from a vision. they prophesy. 5 Heb. yesterday.
8 Or, walk with
10 Heb. from divining. 2 Heb. Drop, &c.
6 Heb. over against the wind, and 11 Heb. upper lip. 3 Or, shortened?
That abhor judgment, and pervert all equity. 10 They build up Zion with 1 blood,
And Jerusalem with iniquity.
And the priests thereof teach for hire,
Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us. 12 Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field,
And Jerusalem shall become heaps,
And the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest. 4
BUT in the last days it shall come to pass, That the mountain of the house of the LORD Shall be established in the top of the mountains, And it shall be exalted above the hills;
And people shall flow unto it.
Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 3 And he shall judge among many people,
And rebuke strong nations afar off;
Neither shall they learn war any more. 4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree;
And none shall make them afraid :
For the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it. 5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, And we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.
In that day, saith the LORD, Will I assemble her that halteth,
And I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; 7 And I will make her that halted a remnant,
And her that was cast far off a strong nation:
From henceforth, even for ever.
The strong hold of the daughter of Zion,
9 NOW why dost thou cry out aloud ?
Is there no king in thee?
For pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail.
Like a woman in travail:
There the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.
And let our eye look upon Zion. 12 But they know not the thoughts of the LORD,
Neither understand they his counsel :
For he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor. 13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion:
For I will make thine horn iron,
And their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.
He hath laid siege against us:
They shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek. 2 But thou, Beth-lehem Ephratah,
Though thou be little among the thousands of Judah,
Whose goings forth have been from of old, from leverlasting. 3 Therefore will he give them up,
Until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth:
Then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel. 4 And he shall stand and 2 feed in the strength of the LORD,
In the majesty of the name of the Lord his God;
For now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth. 5 And this man shall be the peace,
When the Assyrian shall come into our land :
And eight % principal men.
And the land of Nimrod 5 in the entrances thereof :
And when he treadeth within our borders. 7 And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people
As a dew from the LORD,
Nor waiteth for the sons of men.
In the midst of many people
And none can deliver.
And all thine enemies shall be cut off. 10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD,
That I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee,
And I will destroy thy chariots : 11 And I will cut off the cities of thy land,
And throw down all thy strong holds : 12 And I will cut off witchcrafts out of thine hand;
And thou shalt have no more soothsayers : 13 Thy graven images also will I cut off,
And thy 7 standing images out of the midst of thee;
And thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands. 14 And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee:
So will I destroy thy 8 cities.
