1 En gij, Bethlehem Efratha! zijt gij klein om te wezen onder de duizenden van Juda? Uit u zal Mij voortkomen, Die een Heerser zal zijn in Israel, en Wiens uitgangen zijn van ouds, van de dagen der eeuwigheid.

2 Daarom zal Hij henlieden overgeven, tot den tijd toe, dat zij, die baren zal, gebaard hebbe; dan zullen de overigen Zijner broederen zich bekeren met de kinderen Israels.

3 En Hij zal staan, en zal weiden in de kracht des HEEREN, in de hoogheid van den Naam des HEEREN, Zijns Gods, en zij zullen wonen, want nu zal Hij groot zijn tot aan de einden der aarde.

4 En Deze zal Vrede zijn; wanneer Assur in ons land zal komen, en wanneer hij in onze paleizen zal treden, zo zullen wij tegen hem stellen zeven herders, en acht vorsten uit de mensen.

5 Die zullen het land van Assur afweiden met het zwaard, en het land van Nimrod in deszelfs ingangen. Alzo zal Hij ons redden van Assur, wanneer dezelve in ons land zal komen, en wanneer hij in onze landpale zal treden.

6 En Jakobs overblijfsel zal zijn in het midden van vele volken, als een dauw van den HEERE, als droppelen op het kruid, dat naar geen man wacht, noch mensenkinderen verbeidt.

7 Ja, het overblijfsel van Jakob zal zijn onder de heidenen, in het midden van vele volken, als een leeuw onder de beesten des wouds, als een jonge leeuw onder de schaapskudden; dewelke, wanneer hij doorgaat, zo vertreedt en verscheurt hij, dat niemand redde.

8 Uw hand zal verhoogd zijn boven uw wederpartijders, en al uw vijanden zullen uitgeroeid worden.

9 En het zal te dien dage geschieden, spreekt de HEERE, dat Ik uw paarden uit het midden van u zal uitroeien, en Ik zal uw wagenen verdoen.

10 En Ik zal de steden uws lands uitroeien, en Ik zal al uw vestingen afbreken.

11 En Ik zal de toverijen uit uw hand uitroeien, en gij zult geen guichelaars hebben.

12 En Ik zal uw gesneden beelden en uw opgerichte beelden uit het midden van u uitroeien, dat gij u niet meer zult nederbuigen voor het werk uwer handen.

13 Voorts zal Ik uw bossen uit het midden van u uitroeien, en Ik zal uw steden verdelgen.

14 En Ik zal in toorn en in grimmigheid wrake doen aan de heidenen, die niet horen.


Exploring the Meaning of Micha 5

In Micah 5:1, a troop means the good that comes from truth. But... what is a good that comes from truth? Here's a mundane example: you know that it's true that it's safer to buckle your seat belt, so you do it; it's a good action that comes from knowing a truth.

In this verse, a daughter means affection, so it's talking about an affection for doing such good actions. A siege against that would be bad ideas trying to get in, and to smite on the jaw with a rod means to destroy falsities. The prophecy in verse 2 has this in mind. This is what Jesus is being born to do, to lift the siege of false ideas.

In Micah 5:2, we find the familiar prophecy about where the Lord will be born.

Then, in Micah 5:3, 4, there's reference to the Lord gathering the people of His church and teaching them. The term used for the people of the church here is "brothers", as they all address the Lord as Father. The same is true of “the sons of Israel”. "She which travails" is a reference to the woman clothed with the sun spoken of in the book of Revelation.

In Micah 5:5, 6, Assyria means reasoning. Reasoning from the truths taught, as meant by the feeding in verse 4, can bring agreement and peace. But reasoning from the falsity that Assyria brings in must be destroyed. The seven shepherds and eight princely men means a total deliverance from their falsity. Seven means something holy, and eight means complete conjunction.

In Micah 5:7, some of the people left behind were good and had stayed apart from the idolatry of the Israelite kingdom. These remnants could come to the new church the Lord was establishing, where they could be saved. But the vast bulk of the people were led away to captivity not only to physical slavery, but - spiritually - to reasoning from falsity, which becomes a form of slavery, too.

Micah 5:8. The lion and young lion, trampling and tearing are the evil and falsity of the kingdom of Judah, and there will be no support there for the church the Lord will establish.

Micah 5:9. The Lord’s church will win.

Micah 5:10-15. The Lord will establish a new church when He "bows the heavens and comes down" but He will not destroy the physical things that are listed here. It will really be a desrtuction caused by people who operate from selfishness, greed, ignorance, indifference, and love of power.

Horses mean someone’s understanding, and chariots their own false doctrine. Cities mean more general doctrine, and fortresses symbolize their strong opinions. Graven images are idols, i.e. false gods.

The Lord’s anger and vengeance are only appearances in people's imaginations. It's the way they feel when they want what is evil. When evil loves conflict, everyone is going to get angry with everyone else. The Lord would greet them with love if only they would mend their ways.
