Micah 1:14-16 New Life Version (NLV)

14 So give gifts to Moresheth-gath. The people of Achzib will fool the kings of Israel. 15 I will bring one who will beat you in battle, O people of Mareshah. The shining-greatness of Israel will come to Adullam. 16 Cut off all your hair in sorrow for the children you love. Let no hair be on your head like the eagle, for your children will be taken away from you.

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.
