Micah 1:10-12 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

10 Don’t tell it in Gath.[a]
    Don’t cry in Acco.[b]
Roll yourself in the dust
    at Beth Ophrah.[c]
11 You people living in Shaphir,[d]
    pass on your way, naked and ashamed.
The people living in Zaanan[e]
    will not come out.
The people in Beth Ezel[f] will cry
    and take their support from you.
12 The people living in Maroth[g]
    wait for something good to happen,
even though trouble has come down from the Lord
    and has reached the city gate of Jerusalem.
