Micah 3:11-12

KJV 11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us. 12 Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.

JuliaSmith 11 Her heads will judge for a gift, and her priests will teach for hire, and her prophets will divine for silver: and they will lean upon Jehovah, saying, Is not Jehovah in the midst of us? he will not bring evil upon us. 12 For this, on account of you Zion shall be ploughed a field, and Jerusalem shall be ruins, and the mountain of the house for the heights of the forest.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

11 That thought they were safe because they were His people but there was deep corruption, the priesthood had corrupt which meant people went thru corrupt means to talk to God and false words were being spread as though they were from God and decisions were being made not by justice but by bribes, this was something God was going to judge and do away with, we need to make sure we are not living this way.

12 Israel was going to be removed and restarted, God was going to wipe the place clean because they weren’t seeking Him to be clean.
