Micah 2:2-4 Expanded Bible (EXB)

They ·want [covet] fields, so they take them;
    they ·want [covet] houses, so they ·take them away [seize them].
They ·cheat [defraud; oppress] people to get their houses;
    they rob them even of their ·property [inheritance].

That is why the Lord says:

“Look, I am planning ·trouble [disaster] against such people,
    ·and you won’t be able to save yourselves [L from which you cannot remove your necks; C like a yoke].
You will no longer walk ·proudly [arrogantly],
    because it will be a ·terrible time [time of calamity/catastrophe/evil].
·At that time [L In that day] people will ·make fun of [ridicule; sing a taunt against] you
    and ·sing this sad song [L lament with a lamentation] about you:
‘We are completely ·ruined [destroyed];
    the Lord has taken away my people’s ·land [possession; inheritance].
Yes, he has taken it away from me
    and divided our fields among ·our enemies [renegades; or the traitors]!’”
