    Micah 4

    Audio link ;

    https://www.biblegateway.com/audio/purevoice/niv/Mic.4

    In the last days
    the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established
    as the highest of the mountains;
    it will be exalted above the hills,
    and peoples will stream to it.
    2 Many nations will come and say,
    “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
    to the temple of the God of Jacob.
    He will teach us his ways,
    so that we may walk in his paths.”
    The law will go out from Zion,
    the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
    3
    He will judge between many peoples
    and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide.
    They will beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks.
    Nation will not take up sword against nation,
    nor will they train for war anymore.
    4
    Everyone will sit under their own vine
    and under their own fig tree,
    and no one will make them afraid,
    for the Lord Almighty has spoken.
    5
    All the nations may walk
    in the name of their gods,
    but we will walk in the name of the Lord
    our God for ever and ever.
    The Lord’s Plan
    6 “In that day,” declares the Lord,
    “I will gather the lame;
    I will assemble the exiles
    and those I have brought to grief.
    7
    I will make the lame my remnant,
    those driven away a strong nation.
    The Lord will rule over them in Mount Zion
    from that day and forever.
    8
    As for you, watchtower of the flock,
    stronghold[of Daughter Zion,
    the former dominion will be restored to you;
    kingship will come to Daughter Jerusalem.”
    9
    Why do you now cry aloud—
    have you no king?
    Has your ruler perished,
    that pain seizes you like that of a woman in labor?
    10
    Writhe in agony, Daughter Zion,
    like a woman in labor,
    for now you must leave the city
    to camp in the open field.
    You will go to Babylon;
    there you will be rescued.
    There the Lord will redeem you
    out of the hand of your enemies.
    11
    But now many nations
    are gathered against you.
    They say, “Let her be defiled,
    let our eyes gloat over Zion!”
    12
    But they do not know
    the thoughts of the Lord;
    they do not understand his plan,
    that he has gathered them like sheaves to the threshing floor.
    13
    “Rise and thresh, Daughter Zion,
    for I will give you horns of iron;
    I will give you hooves of bronze,
    and you will break to pieces many nations.”
    You will devote their ill-gotten gains to the Lord,
    their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.

    Micah 5

    Audio link ;

    https://www.biblegateway.com/audio/purevoice/niv/Mic.5

    Marshal your troops now, city of troops,
    for a siege is laid against us.
    They will strike Israel’s ruler
    on the cheek with a rod.
    2
    “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
    though you are small among the clans of Judah,
    out of you will come for me
    one who will be ruler over Israel,
    whose origins are from of old,
    from ancient times.”
    3
    Therefore Israel will be abandoned
    until the time when she who is in labor bears a son,
    and the rest of his brothers return
    to join the Israelites.
    4
    He will stand and shepherd his flock
    in the strength of the Lord,
    in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
    And they will live securely, for then his greatness
    will reach to the ends of the earth.
    5
    And he will be our peace
    when the Assyrians invade our land
    and march through our fortresses.
    We will raise against them seven shepherds,
    even eight commanders,
    6
    who will rule[c] the land of Assyria with the sword,
    the land of Nimrod with drawn sword.[d]
    He will deliver us from the Assyrians
    when they invade our land
    and march across our borders.
    7
    The remnant of Jacob will be
    in the midst of many peoples
    like dew from the Lord,
    like showers on the grass,
    which do not wait for anyone
    or depend on man.
    8
    The remnant of Jacob will be among the nations,
    in the midst of many peoples,
    like a lion among the beasts of the forest,
    like a young lion among flocks of sheep,
    which mauls and mangles as it goes,
    and no one can rescue.
    9
    Your hand will be lifted up in triumph over your enemies,
    and all your foes will be destroyed.
    10 “In that day,” declares the Lord,
    “I will destroy your horses from among you
    and demolish your chariots.
    11
    I will destroy the cities of your land
    and tear down all your strongholds.
    12
    I will destroy your witchcraft
    and you will no longer cast spells.
    13
    I will destroy your idols
    and your sacred stones from among you;
    you will no longer bow down
    to the work of your hands.
    14
    I will uproot from among you your Asherah poles
    when I demolish your cities.
    15
    I will take vengeance in anger and wrath
    on the nations that have not obeyed me.”

    Micah 6

    Audio link ;

    https://www.biblegateway.com/audio/purevoice/niv/Mic.6

    Listen to what the Lord says:
    “Stand up, plead my case before the mountains;
    let the hills hear what you have to say.
    2
    “Hear, you mountains, the Lord’s accusation;
    listen, you everlasting foundations of the earth.
    For the Lord has a case against his people;
    he is lodging a charge against Israel.
    3
    “My people, what have I done to you?
    How have I burdened you? Answer me.
    4
    I brought you up out of Egypt
    and redeemed you from the land of slavery.
    I sent Moses to lead you,
    also Aaron and Miriam.
    5
    My people, remember
    what Balak king of Moab plotted
    and what Balaam son of Beor answered.
    Remember your journey from ****tim to Gilgal,
    that you may know the righteous acts of the Lord.”
    6
    With what shall I come before the Lord
    and bow down before the exalted God?
    Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
    with calves a year old?
    7
    Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
    with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?
    Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
    the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
    8
    He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
    To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.
    Israel’s Guilt and Punishment
    9
    Listen! The Lord is calling to the city—
    and to fear your name is wisdom—
    “Heed the rod and the One who appointed it.
    10
    Am I still to forget your ill-gotten treasures, you wicked house,
    and the short ephah, which is accursed?
    11
    Shall I acquit someone with dishonest scales,
    with a bag of false weights?
    12
    Your rich people are violent;
    your inhabitants are liars
    and their tongues speak deceitfully.
    13
    Therefore, I have begun to destroy you,
    to ruin you because of your sins.
    14
    You will eat but not be satisfied;
    your stomach will still be empty.
    You will store up but save nothing,
    because what you save I will give to the sword.
    15
    You will plant but not harvest;
    you will press olives but not use the oil,
    you will crush grapes but not drink the wine.
    16
    You have observed the statutes of Omri
    and all the practices of Ahab’s house;
    you have followed their traditions.
    Therefore I will give you over to ruin
    and your people to derision;
    you will bear the scorn of the nations.

    Micah 7

    Audio link ;

    https://www.biblegateway.com/audio/purevoice/niv/Mic.7

    What misery is mine!
    I am like one who gathers summer fruit
    at the gleaning of the vineyard;
    there is no cluster of grapes to eat,
    none of the early figs that I crave.
    2
    The faithful have been swept from the land;
    not one upright person remains.
    Everyone lies in wait to shed blood;
    they hunt each other with nets.
    3
    Both hands are skilled in doing evil;
    the ruler demands gifts,
    the judge accepts bribes,
    the powerful dictate what they desire—
    they all conspire together.
    4
    The best of them is like a brier,
    the most upright worse than a thorn hedge.
    The day God visits you has come,
    the day your watchmen sound the alarm.
    Now is the time of your confusion.
    5
    Do not trust a neighbor;
    put no confidence in a friend.
    Even with the woman who lies in your embrace
    guard the words of your lips.
    6
    For a son dishonors his father,
    a daughter rises up against her mother,
    a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—
    a man’s enemies are the members of his own household.
    7
    But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord,
    I wait for God my Savior;
    my God will hear me.
    Israel Will Rise
    8
    Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
    Though I have fallen, I will rise.
    Though I sit in darkness,
    the Lord will be my light.
    9
    Because I have sinned against him,
    I will bear the Lord’s wrath,
    until he pleads my case
    and upholds my cause.
    He will bring me out into the light;
    I will see his righteousness.
    10
    Then my enemy will see it
    and will be covered with shame,
    she who said to me,
    “Where is the Lord your God?”
    My eyes will see her downfall;
    even now she will be trampled underfoot
    like mire in the streets.
    11
    The day for building your walls will come,
    the day for extending your boundaries.
    12
    In that day people will come to you
    from Assyria and the cities of Egypt,
    even from Egypt to the Euphrates
    and from sea to sea
    and from mountain to mountain.
    13
    The earth will become desolate because of its inhabitants,
    as the result of their deeds.
    Prayer and Praise
    14
    Shepherd your people with your staff,
    the flock of your inheritance,
    which lives by itself in a forest,
    in fertile pasturelands.
    Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead
    as in days long ago.
    15
    “As in the days when you came out of Egypt,
    I will show them my wonders.”
    16
    Nations will see and be ashamed,
    deprived of all their power.
    They will put their hands over their mouths
    and their ears will become deaf.
    17
    They will lick dust like a snake,
    like creatures that crawl on the ground.
    They will come trembling out of their dens;
    they will turn in fear to the Lord our God
    and will be afraid of you.
    18
    Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
    You do not stay angry forever
    but delight to show mercy.
    19
    You will again have compassion on us;
    you will tread our sins underfoot
    and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
    20
    You will be faithful to Jacob,
    and show love to Abraham,
    as you pledged on oath to our ancestors
    in days long ago.

    Nahum 1

    Audio link ;

    https://www.biblegateway.com/audio/purevoice/niv/Nah.1

    A prophecy concerning Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elko****e.
    The Lord’s Anger Against Nineveh
    2
    The Lord is a jealous and avenging God;
    the Lord takes vengeance and is filled with wrath.
    The Lord takes vengeance on his foes
    and vents his wrath against his enemies.
    3
    The Lord is slow to anger but great in power;
    the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished.
    His way is in the whirlwind and the storm,
    and clouds are the dust of his feet.
    4
    He rebukes the sea and dries it up;
    he makes all the rivers run dry.
    Bashan and Carmel wither
    and the blossoms of Lebanon fade.
    5
    The mountains quake before him
    and the hills melt away.
    The earth trembles at his presence,
    the world and all who live in it.
    6
    Who can withstand his indignation?
    Who can endure his fierce anger?
    His wrath is poured out like fire;
    the rocks are shattered before him.
    7
    The Lord is good,
    a refuge in times of trouble.
    He cares for those who trust in him,
    8
    but with an overwhelming flood
    he will make an end of Nineveh;
    he will pursue his foes into the realm of darkness.
    9
    Whatever they plot against the Lord
    he will bring to an end;
    trouble will not come a second time.
    10
    They will be entangled among thorns
    and drunk from their wine;
    they will be consumed like dry stubble.
    11
    From you, Nineveh, has one come forth
    who plots evil against the Lord
    and devises wicked plans.
    12 This is what the Lord says:
    “Although they have allies and are numerous,
    they will be destroyed and pass away.
    Although I have afflicted you, Judah,
    I will afflict you no more.
    13
    Now I will break their yoke from your neck
    and tear your shackles away.”
    14
    The Lord has given a command concerning you, Nineveh:
    “You will have no descendants to bear your name.
    I will destroy the images and idols
    that are in the temple of your gods.
    I will prepare your grave,
    for you are vile.”
    15
    Look, there on the mountains,
    the feet of one who brings good news,
    who proclaims peace!
    Celebrate your festivals, Judah,
    and fulfill your vows.
    No more will the wicked invade you;
    they will be completely destroyed.

    Nahum 2

    Audio link ;

    https://www.biblegateway.com/audio/purevoice/niv/Nah.2

    An attacker advances against you, Nineveh.
    Guard the fortress,
    watch the road,
    brace yourselves,
    marshal all your strength!
    2
    The Lord will restore the splendor of Jacob
    like the splendor of Israel,
    though destroyers have laid them waste
    and have ruined their vines.
    3
    The shields of the soldiers are red;
    the warriors are clad in scarlet.
    The metal on the chariots flashes
    on the day they are made ready;
    the spears of juniper are brandished.
    4
    The chariots storm through the streets,
    rushing back and forth through the squares.
    They look like flaming torches;
    they dart about like lightning.
    5
    Nineveh summons her picked troops,
    yet they stumble on their way.
    They dash to the city wall;
    the protective shield is put in place.
    6
    The river gates are thrown open
    and the palace collapses.
    7
    It is decreed that Nineveh
    be exiled and carried away.
    Her female slaves moan like doves
    and beat on their breasts.
    8
    Nineveh is like a pool
    whose water is draining away.
    “Stop! Stop!” they cry,
    but no one turns back.
    9
    Plunder the silver!
    Plunder the gold!
    The supply is endless,
    the wealth from all its treasures!
    10
    She is pillaged, plundered, stripped!
    Hearts melt, knees give way,
    bodies tremble, every face grows pale.
    11
    Where now is the lions’ den,
    the place where they fed their young,
    where the lion and lioness went,
    and the cubs, with nothing to fear?
    12
    The lion killed enough for his cubs
    and strangled the prey for his mate,
    filling his lairs with the kill
    and his dens with the prey.
    13
    “I am against you,”
    declares the Lord Almighty.
    “I will burn up your chariots in smoke,
    and the sword will devour your young lions.
    I will leave you no prey on the earth.
    The voices of your messengers
    will no longer be heard.”
    No turning back , No turning back !
