Micah 2:1-5 New International Version

Woe to Those Who Oppress the Poor

2 1  Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning's light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it. 2  They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them. They defraud people of their homes, they rob them of their inheritance. 3  Therefore, the Lord says: "I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity. 4  In that day people will ridicule you; they will taunt you with this mournful song: 'We are utterly ruined; my people's possession is divided up. He takes it from me! He assigns our fields to traitors.' " 5  Therefore you will have no one in the assembly of the Lordto divide the land by lot.
