Micah 2:1-3 Woe to those who devise iniquity and work out evil on their beds! At morning light they practice it because it is in the power of their hand. They covet fields and take them by violence, also houses, and seize them. So they oppress a man and his house, a man and his inheritance. Therefore thus says the LORD: “ Behold, against this family I am devising evil, from which you cannot save yourselves; Nor shall you walk proudly, for it will be a time of evil.
We have to remember that God sets the rules and those rules set for man does not necessarily apply to him. This passage proves just this point. It is “woe to those who devise iniquity and work out evil.” However, at the same time, God was “devising evil” against them as a response.
