Micah 2

1 Ve dem, der på Lejet udtænker Uret og Udåd, og sætter det i Værk, når det dages, da det står i deres Magt.

2 De attrår Marker og raner dem, Huse og tager dem, undertrykker Mand og Hus, Ejendom og Ejer.

3 Derfor, så siger HE EN: Se, jeg optænker Ulykke mod denne Slægt, fra hvilken l ikke skal kunne fri eders Hals eller med oprejst Hoved; thi en ond Tid er det.

4 På denne Dag skal der bruges et Mundheld om jer og klages: "Sket som talt! Vi er helt lagt øde; mit Folk får sin Lod skiftet ud, ingen giver den tilbage; vor Mark skiftes ud til dem, som fører os bort."

5 Derfor har du ingen til at udspænde Snoren over en Lod i HE ENs Forsamling.

6 "Præk ikke!" så præker de, "man præker ikke om sligt; får hans Smæden ej Ende?" Hvad siger du, Jakobs Hus?

7 "Er HE EN da hastig til Vrede, handler han så? Er hans Ord ej milde mod den, som vandrer ret?"

8 Men I er fjendske imod, på Nakken af mit Folk; Kappen over Kjortelen river l af dem, som vandrer trygt og afskyr Strid.

9 Mit Folks Kvinder driver l ud af det Hjem, de holdt af, I tager for evigt min Ære fra deres Børn:

10 "Op, ryk ud! Thi her kan I ikke bo for den Urenheds Skyld, som volder svar Fordærv."

11 I Fald der kom en Mand med Tomhed og Svig og Løgn: "Jeg vil præke for dig om Vin og Drik!" det var en Præker for dette Folk.

12 Jeg vil samle dig, hele Jakob, opsanke Israels est, få dem sammen som Får i Fold, som en Hjord i Græsgangens Midte; af Mennesker bliver der en Summen.

13 En Vejbryder går foran dem; de bryder gennem Porten og går ud. Foran dem skrider deres Konge og HE EN i Spidsen for dem.


Exploring the Meaning of Micah 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.
