Micah 6:8-10 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Mankind, he has told each of you what is good
and what it is the Lord requires of you:
to act justly,
to love faithfulness,
and to walk humbly with your God.

Verdict of Judgment

The voice of the Lord calls out to the city[a]
(and it is wise to fear your name):
“Pay attention to the rod
and the one who ordained it.[b]
10 Are there still[c] the treasures of wickedness
and the accursed short measure
in the house of the wicked?
