1 وقلت اسمعوا يا رؤساء يعقوب وقضاة بيت اسرائيل. أليس لكم ان تعرفوا الحق.

2 المبغضين الخير والمحبين الشر النازعين جلودهم عنهم ولحمهم عن عظامهم.

3 والذين ياكلون لحم شعبي ويكشطون جلدهم عنهم ويهشمون عظامهم ويشققون كما في القدر وكاللحم في وسط المقلى.

4 حينئذ يصرخون الى الرب فلا يجيبهم بل يستر وجهه عنهم في ذلك الوقت كما اساءوا اعمالهم

5 هكذا قال الرب على الانبياء الذين يضلّون شعبي الذين ينهشون باسنانهم وينادون سلام. والذي لا يجعل في افواههم شيئا يفتحون عليه حربا.

6 لذلك تكون لكم ليلة بلا رؤيا. ظلام لكم بدون عرافة. وتغيب الشمس عن الانبياء ويظلم عليهم النهار.

7 فيخزى الراؤون ويخجل العرافون ويغطّون كلهم شواربهم لانه ليس جواب من الله.

8 لكنني انا ملآن قوّة روح الرب وحقا وبأسا لاخبر يعقوب بذنبه واسرائيل بخطيته

9 اسمعوا هذا يا رؤساء بيت يعقوب وقضاة بيت اسرائيل الذين يكرهون الحق ويعوّجون كل مستقيم.

10 الذين يبنون صهيون بالدماء واورشليم بالظلم.

11 رؤساؤها يقضون بالرشوة وكهنتها يعلّمون بالأجرة وانبياؤها يعرفون بالفضة وهم يتوكلون على الرب قائلين أليس الرب في وسطنا. لا يأتي علينا شر.

12 لذلك بسببكم تفلح صهيون كحقل وتصير اورشليم خربا وجبل البيت شوامخ وعر



Exploring the Meaning of ميخا 3

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.
