Mihej 3

Studovat vnitřní smysl

           

1 Potom rekoh: "Čujte sada, glavari kuće Jakovljeve, suci doma Izraelova! Nije li na vama da znate što je pravo? Ali vi mrzite dobro, a ljubite zlo!

2 Vi ljudima derete kožu s tijela i meso s kosti njihovih.

3 Oni proždiru tijelo moga naroda i deru mu kožu, lome kosti. Oni ih komadaju kao u loncu, kao meso u punom kotlu!

4 Zato, oni će Jahvu zazivati, a on im neće odgovoriti. Sakrit će, u ono vrijeme, lice od njih zbog zločina koje su počinili."

5 Ovako govori Jahve protiv prorokÄa koji moj narod zavode: "Ako imaju zalogaj u zubima, proglašuju: 'Mir!' Ali protiv onoga koji im ništa ne stavlja u usta naviještaju sveti rat.

6 Zato ćete imati noć mjesto vaših viđenja i tminu mjesto proricanja. Zaći će sunce tim prorocima i dan će za njih pomrčati.

7 Tada će se posramiti vidovnjaci i zblaniti vračari. Svi će oni pokriti gubice, jer odgovora Božjeg neće biti.

8 Ali ja sam pun snage i duha Jahvina, pun pravde i jakosti da objavim Jakovu opačinu njegovu, Izraelu njegov grijeh.

9 Čujte dakle ovo, glavari kuće Jakovljeve, suci doma Izraelova, vi kojima se pravda gadi te izvrćete sve što je ispravno!

10 Vi koji gradite Sion u krvi i Jeruzalem u zločinu!

11 Glavari njegovi sude prema mitu, svećenici njegovi poučavaju radi zarade, proroci njegovi bale za novac. A na Jahvu se oni pozivaju i govore: 'Nije li Jahve u našoj sredini? Neće na nas zlo navaliti.'

12 Poradi vas i vaše krivnje Sion će biti polje preorano, Jeruzalem ruševina, a Goru Doma prekrit će šuma."



Exploring the Meaning of Mihej 3      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Micah 3:1-3, Micah speaks to the wicked leaders of Jacob and Israel: "Aren’t you supposed to know Judgment? You hate the good and love the evil."

Here, peoples' bones stand for the things they know. Their muscles represent the things they love. The flesh and skin are things about them that are more and more external. 1

And here, Micah is saying that if any of these things, no matter how external, are still good, the evil leaders wish to destroy them.

Micah 3:4. If those destructive leaders cry out to Jehovah for help, He will not hear them.

Micah 3:5-7. These verses are pretty plain as to what they are saying to those wicked leaders: They will end up in darkness. 2 They can prophesy nothing true, because they are so perverted that they know nothing about truth.

In 3:8, Micah says that he has the spirit of Jehovah and can truly prophesy.

In 3:9-11, Micah tells those "heads" and "captains" just how evil they have been, and that still they claim that God is with them. Because they have falsified all truth and good, they can’t tell the difference anymore.

Finally, in verse 12, because of all this, Zion and Jerusalem, meaning the whole of the Israelitish church, will cease to be a representative of the Lord’s ongoing church on earth. 3

Applying this, today... there are a couple of very powerful ideas in this chapter. One is that evil hates good, and wants to destroy even remnants of it. Another scary idea here is that human beings can get to the point of not being able to tell the difference between what's true, and what's false, or between what's good, and what's evil.
