Micah 3

Studovat vnitřní smysl

           

1 Ja minä sanoin: kuulkaat siis te Jakobin päämiehet, ja te Israelin huoneen esimiehet: eikö teidän pitäisi oikeutta tietämän?

2 Mutta te vihaatte hyvää ja rakastatte pahaa; te nyljette heiltä heidän nahkansa, ja kalvatte lihan heidän luistansa;

3 Ja syötte minun kansani lihan, ja kuin te olette heiltä nahan nylkeneet, niin te särjette heidän luunsa, ja hakkaatte rikki ne niinkuin pataan, ja niinkuin lihan kattilaan.

4 Sentähden kuin te Herran tykö huudatte, niin ei hän teitä kuule, vaan peittää silloin teiltä kasvonsa, niinkuin te olette teidän pahalla menollanne ansainneet.

5 Näin sanoo Herra niistä prophetaista, jotka minun kansaani viettelevät: he saarnaavat rauhaa, kuin heille syötävää annetaan; mutta kuin ei heidän suuhunsa mitää anneta, saarnaavat he sodan tulevan.

6 Sentähden pitää teidän näkynne yöksi, ja teidän aavistuksenne pimeydeksi tuleman. Auringon pitää laskeman niiden prophetain ylitse, ja päivän pitää pimenemän heidän päältänsä.

7 Ja näkiäin pitää häpiään tuleman, ja ennustajain häpeemän, ja kaikkein täytyy suunsa peittää, ettei siellä ole Jumalan sanaa.

8 Mutta minä olen täynnä Herran hengen voimaa, ja oikeutta ja väkevyyttä, että minä tohdin ilmoittaa Jakobille ylitsekäymisensä ja Israelille syntinsä.

9 Niin kuulkaat siis tätä, te Jakobin huoneen päämiehet, ja te Israelin huoneen esimiehet: te, jotka oikeutta kauhistutte, ja käännätte toisin kaikki, mikä toimellinen on;

10 Te jotka Zionin verellä rakennatte, ja Jerusalemin vääryydellä.

11 Hänen päämiehensä tuomitsevat lahjain tähden, hänen pappinsa opettavat palkan tähden, ja heidän prophetansa aavistavat rahan tähden; luottavat kuitenkin Herraan, ja sanovat: eikö Herra ole meidän seassamme? Ei taida onnettomuus meitä käsittää.

12 Sentähden pitää Zion kynnettämän teidän tähtenne niinkuin pelto, ja Jerusalem pitää tuleman kiviraunioksi, ja templin vuori metsän kukkulaksi.



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.
