1 欺压人的有祸了

2 他们要田地,就去抢夺;想要房屋,就去强取。他们欺压和他的家眷,取的产业。

3 因此耶和华这样:看哪!我策划灾祸攻击这家族,你们无法缩起颈项避开这灾祸。你们不能昂首而行(“昂首而行”或译:“高视阔步”);因为这是个灾难的时代。

4 到那日,必有人作歌讽刺你们,唱悲伤的哀歌,:“我们彻底被毁灭了,我子民分内的产业,他竟转给别人了;他怎可从我这里挪去,把我们的田地分给掳掠我们的人(“分给掳掠我们的人”或译:“分给背道的人”)!”

5 因此你在耶和华的会众中,必没有抽签拉准的人了。

6 攻击先知的话有人预言:“你们不要预言;人不可预言这些事;羞耻不会临到我们。”

7 雅各家啊!人怎可:“耶和华的心着急,不能忍耐呢?这些是他的作为吗?”我耶和华的对行事正直的人不是有益的吗?

8 你们却像仇敌一样,起来攻击我的子民(“你们却像仇敌一样,起来攻击我的子民”或译:“然而,我的子民竟兴起来像仇敌一样”);你们竟从安详过路的人身上剥去衣服,从不愿作战的人身上剥去外衣。

9 你们把我民中的妇女赶逐,离开欢乐的家园;你们把我的尊荣,从她们的婴孩身上夺去,直到永远

10 起来,走吧!这不是你们安息之地;你们因为不洁净的缘故,必被毁灭,是不可挽救的毁灭。

11 若有随从虚假的心,撒谎说:“我要向你们说清酒和烈酒的预言。”那就是这民的预言家了。

12 复兴雅各家的应许雅各家啊!我必召集你们所有的人,聚集以色列的余民;我要把他们安置在一起,像圈里,像远离了人,在草场上喧哗。

13 的人领先上去;他们开,闯进入,又从里出来;他们的在他们面前走过,耶和华领导他们。


Exploring the Meaning of 弥迦书 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.
