1 Verder het ek gesê: Hoor tog, o hoofde van Jakob en owerstes van die huis van Israel! Betaam dit julle nie om die reg te ken nie?

2 Haters van wat goed is, en liefhebbers van wat sleg is, wat die vel van die mense aftrek en hulle vlees van hul gebeente;

3 en wat die vlees van my volk eet en hulle vel van hulle afslag; ook hulle gebeente verbrysel en hulle aan stukke kap soos vleis in 'n pot en soos vleis in 'n pan.

4 Dan sal hulle die HERE aanroep, en Hy sal hulle nie antwoord nie; maar Hy sal sy aangesig in dié tyd vir hulle verberg, omdat hulle verkeerde dinge gedoen het.

5 So die HERE aangaande die profete wat my volk verlei, wat as hulle maar iets het om met hulle tande te byt, vrede verkondig; maar teen hom wat niks in hulle mond steek nie, verklaar hulle 'n heilige oorlog!

6 Daarom sal dit nag word vir julle, sonder 'n gesig, en duister vir julle, sonder waarsêery; ja, die son sal oor die profete ondergaan, en die dag oor hulle verduister word.

7 En die sieners sal beskaamd staan, en die waarsêers sal bloos, en hulle almal sal die baard bedek, omdat daar geen antwoord van God kom nie.

8 Ek daarenteen is vol krag, mét die Gees van die HERE, en reg en heldemoed, om aan Jakob sy oortreding te verkondig en aan Israel sy sonde.

9 Hoor tog dit, hoofde van die huis van Jakob en owerstes van die huis van Israel! Julle wat van die reg 'n afsku het en al wat reg is, verdraai;

10 julle wat Sion bou met bloed en Jerusalem met onreg!

11 Sy hoofde spreek vonnisse uit vir 'n geskenk, en sy priesters gee onderrig vir loon, en sy profete is waarsêers vir geld. Nogtans steun hulle op die HERE en : Is die HERE nie in ons midde nie? Geen onheil sal ons wedervaar nie!

12 Daarom sal Sion om julle ontwil soos 'n land omgeploeg en Jerusalem puinhope word en die tempelberg bosrante.


Exploring the Meaning of Miga 3      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Micah 3:1-3, Micah speaks to the wicked leaders of Jacob and Israel: "Aren’t you supposed to know Judgment? You hate the good and love the evil."

Here, peoples' bones stand for the things they know. Their muscles represent the things they love. The flesh and skin are things about them that are more and more external. 1

And here, Micah is saying that if any of these things, no matter how external, are still good, the evil leaders wish to destroy them.

Micah 3:4. If those destructive leaders cry out to Jehovah for help, He will not hear them.

Micah 3:5-7. These verses are pretty plain as to what they are saying to those wicked leaders: They will end up in darkness. 2 They can prophesy nothing true, because they are so perverted that they know nothing about truth.

In 3:8, Micah says that he has the spirit of Jehovah and can truly prophesy.

In 3:9-11, Micah tells those "heads" and "captains" just how evil they have been, and that still they claim that God is with them. Because they have falsified all truth and good, they can’t tell the difference anymore.

Finally, in verse 12, because of all this, Zion and Jerusalem, meaning the whole of the Israelitish church, will cease to be a representative of the Lord’s ongoing church on earth. 3

Applying this, today... there are a couple of very powerful ideas in this chapter. One is that evil hates good, and wants to destroy even remnants of it. Another scary idea here is that human beings can get to the point of not being able to tell the difference between what's true, and what's false, or between what's good, and what's evil.
