Micah 2

1 Voi niitä, jotka vahinkoa ajattelevat, ja pahoja juonia vuoteissansa ahkeroitsevat! että he sen täyttäisivät kuin aamu valistaa; sillä heilläpä valta on.

2 He ahnehtivat peltoja, jotka he väkivallalla ottavat, ja huoneita, jotka he omistavat; ja tekevät ylöllistä jokaisen huoneen kanssa ja jokaisen perinnön kanssa.

3 Sentähden sanoo Herra näin: katso, minä ajattelen tälle sukukunnalle pahaa, josta ei teidän pidä voiman vetää pois teidän kansaanne, eikä teidän pidä niin ylpiästi käymän; sillä paha aika tulee.

4 Sillä ajalla pitää teistä sananlasku otettaman, ja surkia valitus valitettaman, sanoen: me olemme peräti hävitetyt; minun kansani osa on muutettu; kuinka hän meiltä pellot ottaa pois, ja ne jakaa.

5 Ja tosin ei teillä pidä osaa Herran seurakunnassa oleman.

6 Ei teidän pidä (sanovat he) saarnaaman, muiden pitää saarnaaman; ei niiden pidä saarnaaman niinkuin te: emme niin ratki häpiään tule.

7 Niin Jakobin huone itsensä lohduttaa: luuletkos Herran hengen lyhennetyksi? eikö hänen näitä pitäisi tekemän? eikö minun puheeni ole hyvä sille, joka oikein vaeltaa?

8 Mutta minun kansani on jo ennen tätä hankkinut niinkuin vihollinen; he ryöstävät sekä hameen että päällisvaatteen niinkuin sodassa niiltä, jotka suruttomasti vaeltavat.

9 Te ajatte pois minun kansani vaimot kauniista huoneistansa, ja alati otatte pois heidän nuorukaisiltansa minun kaunistukseni.

10 Sentähden nouskaat ja menkäät pois; sillä ette saa tässä olla; saastaisuutensa tähden pitää heidän armottomasti häviämän.

11 Jos joku lipilaari olis ja valheen saarnaaja, (joka sanois:) minä tahdon saarnata, kuinka teidän pitää viinaa ja väkevää juomaa juoman; senkaltainen saarnaaja olis tälle kansalle sovelias.

12 Mutta minä tahdon sinua, Jadob, kokonansa koota, ja jääneet Israelissa saattaa kokoon, ja tahdon heitä, niinkuin Botsran lauman, yhteen saattaa; niinkuin lauma pihatossa, niin myös sen pitää ihmisistä kopiseman.

13 Yksi särkiä pitää astuman ylös heidän edellänsä; heidän pitää särkemän lävitse, ja käymän portista ulos ja sisälle; ja heidän kuninkaansa pitää käymän heidän edellänsä, ja Herra kaikkein esin heitä.



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.
