1 祸哉,那些在上图谋罪孽、造作奸恶的!天一发亮,因有能力就行出来了。

2 他们贪图田地就占据,贪图房屋便夺取;他们欺压,霸占房屋和产业。

3 所以耶和华如此:我筹划灾祸降与这族;这祸在你们的颈项上不能解脱;你们也不能昂首而行,因为这时势是恶的。

4 到那日,必有人向你们提起悲惨的哀歌,讥刺我们全然败落了!耶和华将我们的分转归别人,何竟使这分离开我们?他将我们的田地分给悖逆的人。

5 所以在耶和华的会中,你必没有人拈阄拉准

6 他们(或译:假先知):你们不可预言;不可向这些人预言,不住地羞辱我们

7 雅各家啊,岂可耶和华的心不忍耐麽(或译:心肠狭窄麽)?这些事是他所行的麽?我─耶和华的言语岂不是与行动正直的人有益麽?

8 然而,近来我的民兴起如仇敌,从那些安然经过不愿打仗之人身上剥去外衣。

9 你们将我民中的妇人从安乐家中赶出,又将我的荣耀从她们的小孩子尽行夺去。

10 你们起来去罢!这不是你们安息之所;因为污秽使人(或译:地)毁灭,而且大大毁灭。

11 若有心存虚假,用谎言说:我要向你们预言得清酒和浓酒。那就必作这民的先知。

12 雅各家啊,我必要聚集你们,必要招聚以色列剩下的人,安置在一处,如波斯拉的,又如草场上的羊群;因为人数众多就必大大喧哗。

13 的(或译:破城的)在他们前面上去;他们直闯过城,从城出去。他们的在前面行;耶和华引导他们。



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.
