1 Teško meni! Postao sam kao žetelac ljeti, kao trgač poslije jematve: nema bobice grožđa da je pozobljem, nema smokve ranke za kojom žudim!

2 Vjernici su iščezli iz zemlje: nijednog pravednika među ljudima! Svi vrebaju za krvoprolićem, svaki svome bratu mrežu postavlja.

3 Njihove ruke za zlo su sposobne: glavar traži dar, sudac sudi prema poklonu, velikaš po svome hiru odlučuje.

4 I najbolji među njima je kao trn, najpravedniji kao drača živica. Iskušenje njihovo danas sa Sjevera dolazi, dolazi ura strave njihove.

5 Ne pouzdavajte se u bližnjega, ne vjerujte u prijatelja; pred onom koja s tobom dijeli postelju pazi da usta ne otvoriš.

6 Jer sin svoga oca zlostavlja, kćerka na majku ustaje, snaha na svoju svekrvu, svakome je dušmanin njegov ukućanin.

7 A ja, prema Jahvi ja sam zagledan, čekam na Boga koji spasava, Bog moj mene će uslišati.

8 Ne raduj se mome zlu, dušmanko moja, ako sam pao, ustat ću; ako boravim u tminama, Jahve je svjetlost moja.

9 Moram podnositi srdžbu Jahvinu, jer sam protiv njega sagriješio, sve dok on ne prosudi spor moj i izrekne pravdu; izvest će me na svjetlost, gledat ću pravednost njegovu.

10 Kada ga moja dušmanka ugleda, od stida će se pokriti ona koja mi je govorila: "Gdje je on, Jahve, tvoj Bog?" Moje će se oči naslađivati kad je ugledam: ona će biti zgažena kao blato na putu.

11 Dolazi dan kad će se sazidati tvoji bedemi! Toga dana nadaleko će se prostirati tvoje granice!

12 Toga dana dolazit će k tebi od zemlje asirske do Egipta, od Tira do Rijeke, od mora do mora, od gore do gore.

13 Zemlja će postat' pustinja zbog stanovnika svojih, zbog djela njihovih.

14 Pasi svoj narod svojom palicom, stado svoje baštine, koje osamljeno živi u šikarju, usred plodnih voćnjaka. Neka pase u Bašanu i Gileadu, kao u davne dane!

15 Kao u dane kad si izašao iz Egipta, pokaži nam čudesa!

16 Narodi će ih vidjeti i bit će posramljeni uza svu silu svoju; stavit će ruku na usta i uši će im oglušiti.

17 Lizat će prašinu kao zmija, kao gmazovi koji gmižu po zemlji. Izići će dršćući iz svojih jazbina, prestravljeni i ustrašeni pred tobom.

18 Tko je Bog kao ti koji prašta krivnju, koji grijeh oprašta i prelazi preko prekršaja Ostatka baštine svoje, koji ne ustraje dovijeka u svome gnjevu, nego uživa u pomilovanju?

19 Još jednom, imaj milosti za nas! Satri naše opačine, baci na dno mora sve grijehe naše!

20 Udijeli Jakovu vjernost svoju, dobrotu svoju Abrahamu, kako si se zakleo ocima našim od dana iskonskih.


Exploring the Meaning of Mihej 7      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In this last chapter of his book, in Micah 7:1-4, the prophet is discouraged about the evil that he sees in the land. The cluster (of grapes ) that he doesn’t see means that there is no love of the neighbor there. 1 The firstfruits that his soul longs for mean the upright kind of ordinary life 2 , which he can’t find: “the faithful man has perished from the earth”.

The net in verse 2 is the twisting of truth into falsity and the other way round, to deceive. Those who should be faithful leaders are diving into evil, and take bribes. All this hellish behavior will in the end lead to punishment.

In Micah 7:5, 6, these two verses are really not talking about other people; friends, companions, wives or husbands, or in-laws. When Micah refers to a “man’s household” he is talking about the evil loves that live in our own will. That’s where the evil is that we must fear and stamp out. 3

Micah 7:7-9 shows the path away from evil. God will hear us. But we must see that we have sinned and admit it to the Lord 4 , and ask for His help in stopping. He will be a light in our “darkness”. Micah admits his own weakness and admits that only the Lord’s power can "bring him forth to the light".

In Micah 7:10, "She" represents the affection for doing some kind of evil. Everyone has some sort of affections that way. 5 Those affections will try to persuade us that Jehovah can’t help, but if we persist in calling on Him for help, those affections can be shamed and eventually be trampled into the mud.

Micah 7:11, 12 says that when the Lord comes to found a new church, it will spread. Assyria here means reasoning, and Egypt means natural science. Cities mean doctrine from truth, and mountains mean goods, so the picture is of the spreading of both truth and good from one boundary to the other, all the way from natural truths to reasoning about spiritual things -- our whole mind. 6

But the old church will be desolate, according to Micah 7:13.

In Micah 7:14,15, to pasture means to feed the flock as a shepherd 7 , or to teach the truths that the Lord provides. The forest means the church as to truth, and Carmel means the church as to good. 8 Bashan and Gilead mean the same ideas from the stories of the Word, the literal sense.

Nations, in Micah 7:16, 17, mean people outside who don’t know, and don’t want to hear. They will stay focused on physical and sensory things, and will be in dread about knowledge of God.

Then, in Micah 7:18-20, Micah ends on a positive note: God will continue to have compassion on everyone and try to bring them to walk in His ways. Although we are all in freedom to be evil, He will never stop trying to lead us out of it if we will listen.
