3:10  Who build Tzion with crime

In the eighth century BCE, wealthy landowners and traders began to build lavishes mansions, summer and winter houses in the cities. They did this with wealth they had acquired through crime and dishonesty, by oppressing the poor and expropriating the properties of smaller landowners. Micha describes the sickness: “Who build Tzion with crime, Yerushalayim with iniquity!”, and his contemporary Yeshayahu described the cure: “Tzion shall be saved in the judgment; Her repentant ones, in the retribution” (Isaiah. 1:27).
