Micah 7:13-15 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

13 Those nations will suffer disaster
    because of what they did.

Micah’s Prayer and the Lord’s Answer

14 Lead your people, Lord!
    Come and be our shepherd.
Grasslands surround us,
    but we live in a forest.
So lead us to Bashan and Gilead,[a]
and let us find pasture
    as we did long ago.

15 I, the Lord, will work miracles
just as I did
when I led you
    out of Egypt.


  1. 7.14 Bashan and Gilead: Two regions east of the Jordan River, known for their fertile pasturelands.

Micah 7:13-15 New International Version (NIV)

13 The earth will become desolate because of its inhabitants,
    as the result of their deeds.

Prayer and Praise

14 Shepherd your people with your staff,
    the flock of your inheritance,
which lives by itself in a forest,
    in fertile pasturelands.[a]
Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead
    as in days long ago.

15 “As in the days when you came out of Egypt,
    I will show them my wonders.


  1. Micah 7:14 Or in the middle of Carmel
