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?

Who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones;

Who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and they break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron.

Then shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.

Thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.

Mic.3 (Old Testament)

Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.

But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the Lord, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.

Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.

10 They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.

11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, 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.

Trivia In The Bible

Mic.3 (Old Testament)

Chapter 3

Verse: Micah 3:8 "But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression and to Israel his sin."

Lesson: In this chapter, Micah is condemning the leaders of Israel and Judah for their oppression of the poor and their false prophecies. They are using their positions of power for their own gain, rather than serving God and His people. The lesson we must learn is that true leadership is about serving others, not about seeking power or personal gain.

Conclusion: Jesus taught that "whoever would be great among you must be your servant" (Matthew 20:26). We are called to follow His example of humble service and sacrificial love. Whether we are leaders or followers, we must use our gifts and talents for the glory of God and the good of others.

Prayer Points:

l  Ask God to give you a servant's heart and a desire to serve others.

l  Pray for leaders in your church and community, that they would lead with humility and
