1 犹大约坦、亚哈斯、希西家在位的时候,摩利沙人弥迦得耶和华的默示,论撒玛利亚耶路撒冷

2 万民哪,你们都要!地和其上所有的,也都要侧耳而耶和华从他的殿要见证你们的不是。

3 看哪,耶和华出了他的居所,降临步行地的处。

4 在他以必消化,诸必崩裂,如蜡化在中,如坡。

5 这都因雅各过,以色列家的恶。雅各过在哪里呢?岂不是在撒玛利亚麽?犹大的邱坛在哪里呢?岂不是在耶路撒冷麽?

6 所以我必使撒玛利亚变为田野的乱堆,又作为种葡萄之处;也必将她的石头倒在谷中,露出根基来。

7 她一切雕刻的偶像必被打碎;她所得的财物必被烧;所有的偶像我必毁灭;因为是从妓女雇价所聚来的,後必归为妓女的雇价。

8 先知说:因此我必大声哀号,赤脚露体而行;又要呼号如野狗,哀鸣如鸵鸟。

9 因为撒玛利亚的伤痕无法医治,延及犹大耶路撒冷我民的城

10 不要在迦特报告这事,总不要哭泣;我在伯亚弗拉滚於灰尘之中。

11 沙斐的居民哪,你们要赤身蒙羞过去。撒南的居民不敢出来。伯以薛人的哀哭使你们无处可站。

12 玛律的居民心甚忧急,切望得处,因为灾祸从耶和华那里临到耶路撒冷的城

13 拉吉的居民哪,要用快马套车;锡安民(原文是女子)的由你而起;以色列人过在你那里显出。

14 犹大啊,你要将礼物送摩利设迦特。亚革悉的众族必用诡诈待以色列

15 玛利沙的居民哪,我必使那夺取你的到你这里;以色列的尊贵人(原文是荣耀)必到亚杜兰。

16 犹大啊,要为你所喜爱的儿女剪除你的头发,使头光,要大大地光,如同,因为他们都被掳去离开你。



Exploring the Meaning of 弥迦书 1

The prophet Micah lived in the days of Hezekiah, the King of Judah, and the kings that preceded him. In 722 BC, in the fourth year of Hezekiah's reign, Shalmaneser, the King of Assyria, conquered the kingdom of Israel. This was the northern kingdom that had begun with Jeroboam, after Solomon's death, based around Samaria. The Assyrians led away its people, as described in 2 Kings 18:9.

Perhaps the Assyrian victory and the dispersal of the 10 lost tribes are related to Micah's prophecy, but - as in the other books of prophecy - at heart Micah is predicting broader spiritual events, especially the Lord's advent.

In Micah 1:1, 2, Micah starts out by proclaiming that the Lord is coming down as a witness against the people of the earth. Here the earth, internally, means the church - the Lord’s church which forms a connection between God and man. 1

Micah 1:3 says that Jehovah Himself will come down and restructure the church (meant by the earth) and will form a new heaven for that church. 2

In Micah 1:4-7 shows us an internal picture of the judgment on the Israelitish and Jewish churches. Mountains, valleys, fire, and water are all mentioned; all are representations of spiritual realities. When people of the church remember what those realities are, they will come to mind when they worship on a mountain, or treat the fire on the altar as holy. But when the spiritual meanings are forgotten, the representative things are done away with. This was true of both Samaria and Judah (Micah 1:5). 3

Verses 6 and 7 show the wickedness of Samaria, and what will happen to the idols there. 4 From its inception, the northern kingdom of Israel never had a good king. It had, as idols, the two golden calves that Jeroboam set up. All this will be destroyed.

Micah 1:8, 9 tell of the mourning of the people who love what is good, as far as Judah and even Jerusalem, which represents heaven.

However, in Micah 1:10-11, there's a mourning over the punishment as witnessed in some cities, which mean those doctrines that are used to try to justify the idolatry. But the anger is misdirected: people are angry with Jehovah, and not with the sins of idolatry that cause the punishment.

Micah 1:12 describes the mourning about the devastation of the church, which extends through all the heavens, even up to the highest.

In Micah 1:13-15, he's saying that the sins that were widespread in Israel, or Samaria, have also spread to the kingdom of Judah. To come to Adullam means to turn oneself towards evil.

Finally, in Micah 1:16, baldness means a lack of truths. Delightful sons are truths from God. Making yourself bald by shearing off your hair means you are spiritually denying the truths from God, i.e. that you are exiling yourself from your delightful sons. Consequently, everyone suffers deprivation. 5

To apply this to our lives... here's what it looks like:
1. We should turn away from evil and actively seek spiritual truths.
2. We shouldn't set up false gods in our lives, e.g things that we "worship" that really aren't useful.
3. We should try to look for the Lord in the Word, and to connect with Him.
