1 Da sagde jeg: Hør dog, I Jakobs Høvdinger, I Dommere af Israels Hus!. Kan Kendskab til et ej ventes af eder,

2 I, som hader det gode og elsker. det onde, I, som flår Huden af Folk. og Kødet af deres Ben,

3 æder mit Folks Kød og flænger dem Huden af Kroppen, sønderbryder deres Ben. og breder dem som Kød i en Gryde, som Suppekød i en Kedel?

4 Engang skal de råbe til HE EN, han lader dem uden Svar;. da skjuler han sit Åsyn for. dem, fordi deres Gerninger er onde.

5 siger HE EN om Profeterne, de, som vildleder mit Folk, de, som råber om Fred, når kun de får noget at tygge, men ypper Krig med den, der intet giver dem i Munden:

6 Derfor skal I opleve Nat uden. Syner, Mørke, som ej bringer Spådom; Solen skal gå ned for Profeterne, Dagen skal sortne for dem.

7 Til Skamme skal Seeren blive, blues skal de, som spår; alle skal tilhylle Skægget, thi Svar er der ikke fra Gud.

8 Jeg derimod er ved HE ENs Ånd fuld af Styrke, af et og af Kraft til at forkynde Jakob dets Brøde, Israel, hvad det har syndet.

9 Hør det, I Jakobs Huses Høvdinger, I Dommere af Israels Hus, I, som afskyr et og gør alt, som er lige, kroget,

10 som bygger Zion med Blod. og Jerusalem med Uret.

11 Dets Høvdinger dømmer for Gave, dets Præster kender et for Løn; dets Profeter spår for Sølv og støtter sig dog til HE EN: "Er HE EN ej i vor Midte? Over os kommer intet ondt."

12 For eders, Skyld skal derfor Zion pløjes som en Mark, Jerusalem blive til Grushobe, Tempelbjerget til Krathøj.



Exploring the Meaning of Micah 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.
