1 Mi diris:Auxskultu, ho cxefoj de Jakob kaj estroj de la domo de Izrael! Vi devas ja scii la juron;

2 tamen vi malamas la bonon, amas la malbonon; vi desxiras de ili ilian hauxton kaj la karnon de iliaj ostoj.

3 Kaj kiam ili mangxas la karnon de mia popolo, desxiras de ili ilian hauxton, rompas kaj dispecigas iliajn ostojn kvazaux por poto kaj la karnon kvazaux por kaldrono:

4 tiam ili krios al la Eternulo; sed Li ne respondos al ili, Li kasxos antaux ili Sian vizagxon en tiu tempo, cxar ili faris siajn malbonajn agojn.

5 Tiele diras la Eternulo pri la profetoj, kiu erarigas mian popolon, kiuj mordas per siaj dentoj kaj predikas pacon, kaj kontraux tiu, kiu ne donas ion en ilian busxon, ili predikas militon:

6 Tial estos cxe vi nokto, sed ne vizioj, mallumo, sed ne antauxdiroj; subiros la suno super la profetoj, kaj mallumigxos super ili la tago.

7 Hontos tiuj viziistoj, mokindaj farigxos la antauxdiristoj, kaj ili cxiuj fermos sian busxon; cxar ili ne havas respondon de Dio.

8 Sed mi estas plena de forto de la spirito de la Eternulo, de praveco kaj kuragxo, por montri al Jakob lian krimon kaj al Izrael lian pekon.

9 Auxskultu cxi tion, ho cxefoj de la domo de Jakob kaj estroj de la domo de Izrael, kiuj abomenas juron kaj kurbigas cxion rektan,

10 kiuj konstruas Cionon per sango kaj Jerusalemon per maljustajxoj.

11 GXiaj cxefoj jugxas pro subacxeto, gxiaj pastroj instruas pro pago, kaj gxiaj profetoj antauxdiras pro mono; tamen ili apogas sin sur la Eternulo, kaj diras:La Eternulo estas ja meze de ni, ne trafos nin malfelicxo.

12 Tial pro vi Cion estos plugita kiel kampo, Jerusalem farigxos ruinajxo, kaj la monto de la templo farigxos arbara altajxo.



Exploring the Meaning of Miicaah 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.
