1 責以色列人忘恩犯罪你們當耶和華的話:“你要起來,向大爭辯,讓小可以見你的聲音。

2 啊!你們要耶和華的爭辯。大地永久的根基啊!你們要,因為耶和華與他的子民爭辯,和以色列爭論。

3 我的子民啊,我向你作了甚麼呢?我在甚麼事上叫你厭煩呢?你可以回答我。

4 我曾經把你從埃及地領上來,把你從為奴之家贖出來;我也差派了摩西亞倫和米利暗在你前面行。

5 我的民哪!你們要追念,摩押巴勒圖謀過甚麼,比珥的兒子巴蘭又答應了他甚麼,以及你們從什亭到吉甲所發生的事,好使你們知道耶和華的作為。”

6 要求的不是外表的獻祭我朝見耶和華,在至面前叩拜,當獻上甚麼呢?我朝見他的時候,當獻上燔祭,當獻上一歲的犢嗎?

7 耶和華喜悅的公,或是萬萬的嗎?為我的過犯,我可以獻上我的長子嗎?為我的惡,獻上我親生的孩子嗎?

8 世人哪!耶和華已經指示你甚麼是善,他向你所要的又是甚麼;無非是要你行公義,憐憫,謙虛謹慎與你的同行。

9 詭詐的行為必受懲罰啊!耶和華向這城呼叫,敬畏你的名就是智慧;支派和城裡的會眾啊!你們要

10 我怎能忘記惡人家中的不義之財,和那些可咒詛的小升斗呢?

11 用不義的天平,和袋中詐騙的法碼的人,我怎能算他為清潔呢?

12 城裡的財主充滿了強暴,其中的居民假話;他們中的舌頭是詭詐的。

13 因此我擊打你,使你生病,因你的惡,使你荒涼。

14 你要,卻不飽;因你的腹中常有疾病。你要懷孕,卻不能生下來;你生下來的,我都要交

15 你要撒種,卻不得收割,你要榨橄欖,卻不得抹身;你要榨葡萄汁,卻不得酒

16 你跟隨了暗利的規例和亞哈一切所行的,順從了他們的計謀;因此,我必使你荒涼,使你(“你”原文作“她”)的居民被嗤笑;你們也必擔當我民的羞辱。

  

Exploring the Meaning of 彌迦書 6      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Micah 6:1-4, the Lord speaks of all that He has done for Israel, getting them out of Egypt where they were slaves. In Micah 6:5, he relates how He protected them from Balak, king of Moab (in Numbers 22-24).

Then, in Micah 6:6-8, the Lord asks, rhetorically, how the people should worship Him: “With calves of a year old?” and then goes on with a reference to the idol Moloch, “shall I give my firstborn for my transgression?” Obviously these external acts do no good at all without internal repentance and a stopping of any transgressions.

Then He answers the question. Micah says, “He has told thee oh man, what is good,” and continues the stirring, familiar words; "do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God". 1

Micah 6:9 is about humility. It's a really important idea that started to be a problem for humankind all the way back in the story of the Garden of Eden. To eat of the tree of “the knowledge of good and evil” is to take to oneself the right/ability to decide which is which, and not listen to what God says about it. To walk “humbly” is to listen to God. That’s the meaning of “hear ye the rod and who has appointed it.”

Micah 6:10-11 points out that there is still some falsification with these people. The lean ephah is a cheating on the amount of liquid in a pitcher, and liquids refer to truth. Stones are used as weights to balance a scale that weighs out a purchase of food, and deceitful stones will cheat the buyer. Food means a form of good.

In Micah 6:12, 13, the rich mean people who, because they know a lot about natural things, believe they are also wise about spiritual things. 2 Here they are wicked and love the life of evil and falsity, nor can they be changed.

Then, in Micah 6:14-16, the chapter ends with a list of the problems such people will face. To eat, in the good sense, is to take in good. However, the gifts given by people who are immersed in evils and falsities turn out to be false gifts. People try to get things that will make them happy, but it doesn’t happen. Olives and their oil mean good, and grapes and their juice mean truth. 3

What are the laws of Omri? Omri was one of the wickeder kings of Israel, and Ahab was the wickedest king of all. To follow them means desolation and reproach.

In some ways, this chapter is a lot like many others in the books of the prophets. And yet, for centuries it has stood out, because it contains one of the Word's most powerful, concise, statements of how we should live: "Do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God."

'Justice' signifies both good and truth.


主是爱本身,以智慧本身的形式表达。爱是他的本质,也是他的全部。智慧-对如何将爱付诸行动的热爱理解-稍微有点外在,为爱提供了一种表达自我的方式。 当圣经说“耶和华”时,它代表的是至高无上的爱,这是主的本质。那爱本身就是一个完整的整体,而爱也是一个,只适用于主的名字。然而,智慧表达在各种各样的思想和观念中,这些著作统称为神的真理。也有许多虚构的神,有时天使和人也可以被称为神(耶和华说摩西将成为亚伦的神)。因此,当圣经称上帝为“上帝”时,多数情况下是指神圣的真理。 在其他情况下,“上帝”指的是所谓的神圣人类。情况是这样的: 作为人类,我们不能直接将主作为上帝的爱来参与。它太强大了,太纯净了。相反,我们必须通过神圣的真理了解他来接近他。因此,神圣的真理是人类形式的主,这是我们可以接近和理解的形式。因此,“上帝”也被用来指代人类这一方面,因为它是真理的表达。
