When the morning is light they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand.(just because you may be able to perpetrate evils doesn't mean you should).

Micah 2:1,2 Woe to them that devise.iniquity and work evil upon their beds! When the morning is light they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. And they covet fields and take them by violence.(original 'force by any means', such as policies written against the men and women of nations).and houses and take them away.(foreclosures). So they oppress a man and his house.(household), even a man and his heritage.(ever get any dividend back for the use of the resources that belong to all the men & women, where you may live?)

Micah 3:1-3 And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob and you princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?.(that is, you are leaders and you have no judgment because you gravitate to the enticing, titillating dark side of life that corrupts you), you who hate the good and love the evil, you who pluck off their skin from off them and their flesh from off their bones.(JFB Commentary:."rob their fellow countrymen of all their substance:.Psalms 14:4; Proverbs 30:14"; Ezekiel 22:27), you also eat the flesh of my people and flay their skin from off them and they break their bones and chop them in pieces, as for the pot and as flesh within the caldron.

Micah 3:4 Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them. He will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.

Micah 3:5 Thus says the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth and cry, Peace and he that puts not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him..(they are well fed, looked after by their lies and deceits; they tell the people who look to them, there will be peace and plenty for you, while all the time he does nothing to make it so for them, even willing to make war with them in order to maintain his position of comfort:.Isaiah 30:10)

Micah 3:6,7 Therefore night shall be unto you, that you shall not have a vision and it shall be dark unto you, that you shall not divine and the sun shall go down over the prophets and the day shall be dark over them. Then shall the seers be ashamed and the diviners confounded. Yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.

Micah 3:11 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?.(no, they don't do that, instead they worship with some religion they dreamed up) None evil can come upon us.

Micah 4:4 But they will sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree.(the trees are on property belonging to those on the land, not the crown, not the state; rather, the state and world belongs to all the people in it according to guidelines {what guidelines?.Romans 13:10} men and women set up {the United States Constitution made an attempt at a good constitution, but the power controllers had their own ideas, so again in history, the people got shafted).and none will make them afraid. For the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken it.

Micah 4:5 For all people will walk every one in the name.(the name of God is love:.1John 4:8,16).of his god.(?).and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.

Micah 6:6,7 Wherewith shall I come before the LORD.(what's the LORD?), and bow myself before the high God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?

Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

Micah 6:8 He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?.(just what pleases God?)

Micah 6:16 For the statutes of Omri are kept and all the works of the house of Ahab, and you walk in their counsels; that I should make you a desolation and the inhabitants thereof an hissing; therefore you will bear the reproach of my people.

Micah 7:2,3 The good man is perished out of the earth and there is none upright among men. They all lie in wait for blood. They hunt every man his brother with a net that they may do evil with both hands earnestly. The prince asks and the judge asks for a reward.

Micah 7:2,3 The good man is perished out of the earth and there is none upright among men.(Psalms 14:3; Romans 3:11-18). They all lie in wait for blood.(if they can't get from you one way, they'll kill you to get advantage, whatever they can do to bleed you dry of the things you have?). They hunt every man his brother with a net.(*).that they may do evil with both hands earnestly.(what's he good for; what can we get from him? They are really into selfishness). The prince asks and the judge asks for a reward.(Adam Clarke's Commentary:."that he may decide the cause in favour of him who gives most money, whether the cause be good or evil; this was notoriously the case in our own country before the giving of Magna Carta and hence that provision 'Nulli vendemus justitiam aut rectum' meaning 'We will not sell justice to any man'; this was not the only country where justice and judgment were put to sale").and the great man.(important in the eyes of others), he utters his mischievous desire, so they wrap it up.(Adam Clarke's Commentary:."they all conjoin in doing evil in their several offices and in oppressing the poor").

Micah 7:4 The best of them is as a brier. The most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge. The day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh. Now shall be their perplexity.

Micah 7:4 The best of them is as a brier.(original 'sting', out to take selfish advantage of others. If all they can do at the time is pinprick a bit, that's what they start with, till next time). The most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge.(seizes each and every opportunity to enrich the self at another's expense. They know just how to get advantage over you and they love doing it). The day of your watchmen.(things you think that will provide warning to you so you can take action and get away safely).and your visitation is coming.(no escaping, the universal law of having to reap what you have sown has now come upon you). Now shall be their perplexity.

Micah 7:5 Trust.(trusting him to support you).you not in a friend, put you not confidence in a guide.(original 'person of authority'). Keep the doors of your mouth from her that lies in your bosom.(Samson didn't and look what it got him).

Micah 7:13 Notwithstanding the land shall be desolate because of them.(Micah 2:1-3; 7:2,3).that dwell therein, for.(or, 'because of').the fruit of their doings.(*).
