Micah 2:1-3 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
2 Woe to them that devise iniquity,
and work evil upon their beds!
when the morning is light, they practise it,
because it is in the power of their hand.
2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence;
and houses, and take them away:
so they 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,
from which ye shall not remove your necks;
neither shall ye go haughtily:
for this time is evil.
Micah 2:1-3 New International Version (NIV)
Human Plans and God’s Plans
2 Woe to those who plan iniquity,
to those who plot evil on their beds!
At morning’s light they carry it out
because it is in their power to do it.
2 They covet fields and seize them,
and houses, and take them.
They defraud people of their homes,
they rob them of their inheritance.
3 Therefore, the Lord says:
“I am planning disaster against this people,
from which you cannot save yourselves.
You will no longer walk proudly,
for it will be a time of calamity.
