1 Hør, hvad HE EN taler: Kom fremfør din Trætte for Bjergene, lad Højene høre din øst!

2 I Bjerge, hør HE ENs Trætte, lyt til, I Jordens Grundvolde! Thi HE EN har Trætte med sit Folk, med Israel går han i ette:

3 Hvad har jeg gjort dig, mit Folk. med hvad har jeg plaget dig? Svar!

4 Jeg førte dig jo op fra Ægypten og udløste dig af Trællehuset, og jeg sendte for dit Ansigt Moses, Aron og Mirjam.

5 Mit Folk, kom i Hu, hvad Kong Balak af Moab havde i Sinde, og hvad Bileam, Beors Søn, svarede ham, fra Sjittim til Gilgal, for at du kan kende HE ENs etfærdsgerninger.

6 "Med hvad skal jeg møde HE EN, bøje mig for Højhedens Gud? Skal jeg møde ham med Brændofre, møde med årgamle Kalve?

7 Har HE EN Behag i Tusinder af Vædre, Titusinder af Oliestrømme? Skal jeg give min førstefødte for min Synd, mit Livs Frugt som Bod for min Sjæl?"

8 Det er sagt dig, o Menneske, hvad der er godt, og hvad HE EN kræver af dig: hvad andet end at øve et, gerne vise Kærlighed og vandre ydmygt med din Gud.

9 Hør, HE EN råber til Byen (at frygte dit Navn er Visdom): Hør, Stamme og Byens Menighed!

10 Skal jeg tåle Skattene i den gudløses Hus og den magre, forbandede Efa,

11 tilgive Gudløsheds Vægt og Pungen med falske Lodder?

12 Dens igmænd er fulde af Vold, dens Borgeres Tale er Løgn, og Tungen er falsk i deres Mund.

13 Derfor tog jeg til at slå dig, ødelægge dig for dine Synder.

14 Du skal spise, men ikke mættes, lige tomt skal dit Indre være; hvad du hengemmer, skal du ej bjærge, og hvad du bjærger, giver jeg Sværdet;

15 du skal så, men ikke høste, perse Oliven, men ikke salve dig, perse Most, men ej drikke Vin.

16 Du fulgte Omris Skikke, al Akabs Huses Færd; I vandrede efter deres åd, så jeg må gøre dig til Ørk og Byens Borgere til Spot; Folkenes Hån skal I bære.


Exploring the Meaning of Micah 6      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Micah 6:1-4, the Lord speaks of all that He has done for Israel, getting them out of Egypt where they were slaves. In Micah 6:5, he relates how He protected them from Balak, king of Moab (in Numbers 22-24).

Then, in Micah 6:6-8, the Lord asks, rhetorically, how the people should worship Him: “With calves of a year old?” and then goes on with a reference to the idol Moloch, “shall I give my firstborn for my transgression?” Obviously these external acts do no good at all without internal repentance and a stopping of any transgressions.

Then He answers the question. Micah says, “He has told thee oh man, what is good,” and continues the stirring, familiar words; "do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God". 1

Micah 6:9 is about humility. It's a really important idea that started to be a problem for humankind all the way back in the story of the Garden of Eden. To eat of the tree of “the knowledge of good and evil” is to take to oneself the right/ability to decide which is which, and not listen to what God says about it. To walk “humbly” is to listen to God. That’s the meaning of “hear ye the rod and who has appointed it.”

Micah 6:10-11 points out that there is still some falsification with these people. The lean ephah is a cheating on the amount of liquid in a pitcher, and liquids refer to truth. Stones are used as weights to balance a scale that weighs out a purchase of food, and deceitful stones will cheat the buyer. Food means a form of good.

In Micah 6:12, 13, the rich mean people who, because they know a lot about natural things, believe they are also wise about spiritual things. 2 Here they are wicked and love the life of evil and falsity, nor can they be changed.

Then, in Micah 6:14-16, the chapter ends with a list of the problems such people will face. To eat, in the good sense, is to take in good. However, the gifts given by people who are immersed in evils and falsities turn out to be false gifts. People try to get things that will make them happy, but it doesn’t happen. Olives and their oil mean good, and grapes and their juice mean truth. 3

What are the laws of Omri? Omri was one of the wickeder kings of Israel, and Ahab was the wickedest king of all. To follow them means desolation and reproach.

In some ways, this chapter is a lot like many others in the books of the prophets. And yet, for centuries it has stood out, because it contains one of the Word's most powerful, concise, statements of how we should live: "Do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God."
