1 Wee die wat onreg uitdink en kwaad smee op hulle bedde; by die môrelig voer hulle dit uit, want dit is in die mag van hulle hand.

2 Ja, hulle begeer velde en roof dit; ook huise en neem dit. So pleeg hulle dan geweld teenoor die man en sy huis, teenoor die mens en sy erfdeel.

3 Daarom, so die HERE: Kyk, Ek bedink onheil teen hierdie geslag, waar julle jul nekke nie sal kan uittrek nie, en waarby julle nie regop sal kan loop nie; want dit sal 'n tyd van onheil wees!

4 In dié dag sal hulle 'n spotlied oor julle aanhef en 'n klaaglied sing: Dit is gedaan--sal hulle --ons is heeltemal verwoes; die eiendom van my volk laat Hy van besitter verander. Hoe neem Hy dit van my af! Aan die afvalliges deel Hy ons velde uit.

5 Daarom sal daar vir jou niemand wees wat die meetsnoer werp in'n erfdeel in die vergadering van die HERE nie.

6 Moet nie profeteer nie! die valse profete. As 'n mens hieroor nie mag profeteer nie, sal die beskimping nie ophou nie!

7 Mag dit gesê word, o huis van Jakob: Sou die HERE dan ongeduldig wees? Of is dit sy dade? Is my woorde nie vriendelik teenoor hom wat as opregte wandel nie?

8 Maar reeds vroeër het my volk vyandig opgetree. Julle pluk die mantel af, weg van die kleed van die wat in gerustheid verbygaan, wat afkerig is van oorlog.

9 Die vroue van my volk verdryf julle uit die huis wat hulle liefhet; van hulle kinders neem julle my sieraad weg in ewigheid.

10 Staan op en gaan heen! Want nie hiér is die rusplek nie, weens die onreinheid wat verwoesting aanrig, ja, 'n onherstelbare verwoesting.

11 As iemand wind nawandel en bedrieglik lieg en sê: Ek sal vir jou profeteer by wyn en sterk drank--dan sou hy vir hierdie volk 'n profeet wees!

12 Gewis sal Ek jou geheel en al versamel, o Jakob! Gewis sal Ek vergader die oorblyfsel van Israel; almal bymekaarbring soos skape in 'n kraal, soos 'n kudde in sy weiveld; en dit sal dreun van mense.

13 Die deurbreker sal optrek voor hulle uit: hulle sal deurbreek en deur die poort intrek en daardeur uittrek; en hulle koning sal voor hulle uit gaan, en die HERE heeltemal vooraan.


Exploring the Meaning of Miga 2      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

Premeditated evil is worse than evil done on the spur of the moment, because the will to do evil is more involved. In Micah 2:1, 2, the hand represents power 1 , and when the evildoer treats his power as his god, the penalty is great. The planning that goes into coveting is a similar thing.

In Micah 2:3-5, the family means the church - the state of spiritual life - as it was in both kingdoms, Israel and Judah. The words here tell that both these parts of the church will be devastated, first one and then the other. Thus, in the end, there will be none left in the land of Canaan, and there will be no choosing of inheritance, as was done with Joshua back when the land was first divided amongst the 12 tribes. (See Joshua 13 through 16). To cast a cord is to use a measuring cord to plot out a piece of land.

Micah 2:6, 7. To drop down means to drop knowledge down to one who does not know, that is, to teach. Those who are in evil are not humble enough to be taught. Only those who “walk uprightly” profit from teaching about the Lord and His Word.

Micah 2:8,9. People who are not humble enough to learn truths become enemies to good people. They will try to argue away the truths from someone who uses them to fight temptations. In these verses, the stolen garment means truths 2 . The war means temptations. The gentle love of feeling close to the Lord, and the love of innocence 3 , will be attacked by evil people who will try to destroy them by scoffing and denial.

Micah 2:10, 11. The unteachable people of that dying church will perish. They will only accept teachings from a prophet who promises wine and strong drink. In a good sense, wine in the Word represents truth, as when it's used in the holy supper. But, like all natural things, the meaning can sometimes be used in the opposite way, as here, where it means the falsities of evil. 4

Micah 2:12, 13. There will still be a few people who remain good, and true. These will be gathered by the Lord as a flock to its fold. From their speaking they can be judged, and then led on to the new church established by Jehovah.

The takeaways for us, reading this text 2600 years later, could be boiled down to these truths:
- Don't premeditate evil.
- We need to be humble enough to learn truths about the Lord.
- If we walk uprightly, we have a chance to receive truth, and practice it, and benefit from what we learn.
- If we remain good and true, the Lord can lead us.
