Micheáš 3

Studovat vnitřní smysl

           

1 Protož pravím: Slyštež již přední v Jákobovi, a vůdcové domu Izraelského: Zdaliž vy nemáte povědomi býti soudu?

2 Nenávidí dobrého a milují zlé, sdírají s lidu kůži jejich, a maso jejich s kostí jejich.

3 A jedí maso lidu mého, a kůži jejich s nich svláčejí, i kosti jejich rozlamují, a rozdělují jako do hrnce, a jako maso do kotlíku.

4 Tehdy volati budou k Hospodinu, a nevyslyší jich, ale skryje tvář svou před nimi v ten čas, tak jakž oni vykonávali zlá předsevzetí svá.

5 Takto praví Hospodin o těch prorocích, kteříž v blud uvodí lid můj, a hryzouce zuby svými, vyhlašují pokoj, a proti tomu, kdož by jim nic do úst nedal, válku vyzdvihují.

6 A protož obrátí se vám vidění v noc, a předpovídání vaše v tmu; nebo zajde slunce těm prorokům, a zatmí se jim den.

7 I budou se hanbiti ti vidoucí, a styděti ti věštci, a zastrou bradu svou všickni napořád, proto že nebude žádné odpovědi Boží.

8 Ale já naplněn jsem silou Ducha Hospodinova, a soudem i udatností, abych oznámil Jákobovi zpronevěření jeho, a Izraelovi hřích jeho.

9 Slyštež již toto přední v domě Jákobově, a vůdcové domu Izraelského, kteříž v ošklivosti mají soud, a cožkoli jest pravého, převracejí:

10 Každý vzdělává Sion vraždami, a Jeruzalém nepravostí.

11 Jehož přední podlé darů soudí, a kněží jeho ze mzdy učí, a proroci jeho z peněz hádají, a však na Hospodina zpoléhají, říkajíce: Zdaliž Hospodina není u prostřed nás? Nepřijdeť na nás nic zlého.

12 A protož vaší příčinou Sion jako pole orán bude, a Jeruzalém v hromady obrácen bude, a hora domu toho v vysoké lesy.


Exploring the Meaning of Micheáš 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.
