1 成群的民(原文是女子)哪,現在你要聚集成隊;因為仇敵圍攻我們,要用杖擊打以色列審判者的臉。

2 伯利恆以法他啊,你在猶大諸城中為小,將來必有一位從你那裡出來,在以色列中為我作掌權的;他的根源從亙古,從太初就有。

3 耶和華必將以色列人交付敵人,直等那生產的婦人生下子來。那時掌權者(原文是他)其餘的弟兄必歸到以色列人那裡。

4 他必起來,倚靠耶和華的大能,並耶和華─他之名的威嚴,牧養他的羊群。他們要安然居住;因為他必日見尊大,直到地極。

5 這位必作我們的平安。當亞述人進入我們的地境,踐踏宮殿的時候,我們就立起個牧者,個首領攻擊他。

6 他們必用刀毀壞亞述地和寧錄地的關口。亞述人進入我們的地境踐踏的時候,他必拯救我們

7 雅各餘剩的必在多國的民中,如從耶和華那裡降下的水,又如甘霖降在上;不仗賴力,也不等候世之功。

8 雅各餘剩的人必在多國多民中,如林間百中的獅子,又如少壯獅子羊群中。他若經過就必踐踏撕裂,無人搭

9 願你的舉起,敵人!願你的仇敵都被剪除!

10 耶和華:到那日,我必從你中間剪除馬匹,毀壞車輛,

11 也必從你國中除滅城邑,拆毀一切的保障,

12 又必除掉你中的邪術;你那裡也不再有占卜的。

13 我必從你中間除滅雕刻的偶像和柱像,你就不再跪拜自己所造的。

14 我必從你中間拔出木偶,又毀滅你的城邑。

15 我也必在怒氣和忿怒中向那不從的列國施報。

In Micah 5:1, a troop means the good that comes from truth. But... what is a good that comes from truth? Here's a mundane example: you know that it's true that it's safer to buckle your seat belt, so you do it; it's a good action that comes from knowing a truth.

In this verse, a daughter means affection, so it's talking about an affection for doing such good actions. A siege against that would be bad ideas trying to get in, and to smite on the jaw with a rod means to destroy falsities. The prophecy in verse 2 has this in mind. This is what Jesus is being born to do, to lift the siege of false ideas.

In Micah 5:2, we find the familiar prophecy about where the Lord will be born.

Then, in Micah 5:3, 4, there's reference to the Lord gathering the people of His church and teaching them. The term used for the people of the church here is "brothers", as they all address the Lord as Father. The same is true of “the sons of Israel”. "She which travails" is a reference to the woman clothed with the sun spoken of in the book of Revelation.

In Micah 5:5, 6, Assyria means reasoning. Reasoning from the truths taught, as meant by the feeding in verse 4, can bring agreement and peace. But reasoning from the falsity that Assyria brings in must be destroyed. The seven shepherds and eight princely men means a total deliverance from their falsity. Seven means something holy, and eight means complete conjunction.

In Micah 5:7, some of the people left behind were good and had stayed apart from the idolatry of the Israelite kingdom. These remnants could come to the new church the Lord was establishing, where they could be saved. But the vast bulk of the people were led away to captivity not only to physical slavery, but - spiritually - to reasoning from falsity, which becomes a form of slavery, too.

Micah 5:8. The lion and young lion, trampling and tearing are the evil and falsity of the kingdom of Judah, and there will be no support there for the church the Lord will establish.

Micah 5:9. The Lord’s church will win.

Micah 5:10-15. The Lord will establish a new church when He "bows the heavens and comes down" but He will not destroy the physical things that are listed here. It will really be a desrtuction caused by people who operate from selfishness, greed, ignorance, indifference, and love of power.

Horses mean someone’s understanding, and chariots their own false doctrine. Cities mean more general doctrine, and fortresses symbolize their strong opinions. Graven images are idols, i.e. false gods.

The Lord’s anger and vengeance are only appearances in people's imaginations. It's the way they feel when they want what is evil. When evil loves conflict, everyone is going to get angry with everyone else. The Lord would greet them with love if only they would mend their ways.

伯利恆
在圣经中,以法拉和伯利恒之间有很强的关系;它们可能是同一个城镇的两个不同名称,也可能是以法拉描述的地区包括伯利恒。不管是什么情况,它们在《圣经》中都扮演着重要的角色。当然,伯利恒是众所周知的耶稣的出生地,但也是大卫和本雅明的出生地,本雅明的母亲拉结也葬在那里。 原因是以法拉和伯利恒(顺便说一下,还有本雅明)代表了我们属灵的线的一个关键元素,这个元素使我们有可能拥有属灵的生活。 在最深层次上,我们的身份、我们的人性,是由爱所决定的--我们所爱的东西使我们成为什么样的人、什么样的人。但这种爱被锁在我们的内心深处;它不是我们可以直接与他人分享的。要分享它,我们必须给它一个形式--而给它一个形式意味着我们实际上是把它变成了思想,变成了真理。作为真理,它可以被分享,如果我们幸运的话,接受它的人将能够反其道而行之,感受到并内化为真理中所包含的爱。 不过,这个过程,涉及到两种 "量子飞跃"。爱是一种内在的东西,而真理是一种外在的东西(或如瑞典博格所说,爱是天体性的,真理是精神性的),内在的东西和外在的东西是分开的,处于两个不同的存在平面。把爱作为真理表达出来,需要一个特殊的过程,从真理中接受爱也需要一个特殊的过程。这就是伯利恒的意义所在。 伯利恒(和以法拉和本雅明)代表了瑞典博格所说的 "天人之灵"。这就是天体元素--爱--可以向着一种形式推进,可以尽可能地变得 "像真理一样"。与之相匹配的是一种叫做 "精神的天体",在这里,精神元素--真理--可以尽可能地变成 "爱的样子"。通过这些中间人,爱可以跳过这道鸿沟,有点像神经冲动穿越突触,或者像磁场把两块磁铁拉到一起。这是我们把爱变成有用的形式的唯一途径,也是我们分享爱的唯一途径。 这也解释了为什么约瑟要等到本雅明与他的弟兄们同在埃及时,才能向他们显明自己--约瑟代表灵界的天人,需要与天人的灵界的灵界配对才能沟通。这也解释了为什么主必须在伯利恒出生的原因。祂以人的形式降临,使祂的完美、无限的、神圣的爱能以真理的形式出现,与我们分享。这必须通过把一个内在的、天上的东西----祂的爱----变成一个外在的、属灵的形式----祂的真理来实现。只有通过天体的灵性,也就是伯利恒,才能实现这一点。

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。
