Micah 1:14-16 Modern English Version (MEV)

14 Therefore you will give parting gifts
    to Moresheth Gath;
the houses of Akzib will be deception
    to the kings of Israel.
15 I will again bring a conqueror to you,
    inhabitants of Mareshah;
the glory of Israel
    will come to Adullam.
16 Make yourself bald and shave your head
    for the children of your delight;
make yourself as bald as the eagle,
    for they will go from you into exile.
