Micah 1:14-16 Common English Bible (CEB)

14 Therefore, you will give good-bye gifts to Moresheth-gath;
        the houses of Achzib have become a deception for the kings of Israel.
15 Again I will bring to you the one who conquers, inhabitants of Mareshah;
        the glory of Israel will come as far as Adullam.
16 Make yourself bald and cut off your hair
            because of your cherished children!
        Make yourself as bald as the vulture,
            for they have gone from you into exile.

Micah 1:14-16 New International Version (NIV)

14 Therefore you will give parting gifts
    to Moresheth Gath.
The town of Akzib[a] will prove deceptive
    to the kings of Israel.
15 I will bring a conqueror against you
    who live in Mareshah.[b]
The nobles of Israel
    will flee to Adullam.
16 Shave your head in mourning
    for the children in whom you delight;
make yourself as bald as the vulture,
    for they will go from you into exile.


  1. Micah 1:14 Akzib means deception.
  2. Micah 1:15 Mareshah sounds like the Hebrew for conqueror.
