1 Mutta viimeisinä päivinä pitää sen vuoren, jolla Herran huone on, vahvistuman, ja oleman korkeimman kaikkia muita vuoria, ja korotettaman kukkulain ylitse; ja kansat pitää sinne juokseman.

2 Ja moninaiset pakanat sinne menemän ja sanoman: tulkaat ja astukaamme ylös Herran vuorelle ja Jakobin Jumalan huoneen tykö, että hän opettais meille teitänsä, ja me vaeltaisimme hänen poluillansa. Sillä Zionista on laki tuleva, ja Herran sana Jerusalemista.

3 Ja hän on tuomitseva paljon kansan seassa, ja rankaiseva väkevät pakanat kaukaisissa maakunnissa; silloin pitää heidän miekkansa vannaiksi tekemän ja keihäänsä viikahteiksi. Ei yhdenkään kansan pidä toista kansaa vastaan miekkaa nostaman, eikä enään tottuman sotimaan.

4 Jokaisen pitää viinapuunsa ja fikunapuunsa alla pelkäämättä asuman; sillä Herran Zebaotin suu on sen puhunut.

5 Jokainen kansa pitää Jumalansa nimessä vaeltaman; mutta meidän pitää vaeltaman Herran meidän Jumalamme nimeen, aina ja ijankaikkisesti.

6 Sillä ajalla, sanoo Herra, tahdon minä ontuvaiset koota, ja saattaa hyljätyt kokoon, ja sen, jota minä vaivannut olen.

7 Ja tahdon ontuvaiselle perillisiä saattaa, ja heikon suureksi kansaksi tehdä. Ja Herra on itse oleva heidän kuninkaansa Zionin vuorella tästä ajasta hamaan ijankaikkisuuteen.

8 Ja sinä Ederin torni, Zionin tyttären linna, sinun tykös pitää tuleman, ja pitää tuleman sen entinen esivalta, Jerusalemin tyttären valtakunta.

9 Miksi sinä nyt niin lakkaamatta huudat? Eikö kuningas ole sinun kanssas? Ovatko sinun neuvonantajas hukkuneet, että kipu tarttui sinuun niinkuin synnyttäväiseen?

10 Murehdi ja huokaa sinä, Zionin tytär, niinkuin synnyttäväinen: sillä sinun täytyy mennä ulos kaupungista ja kedolla asua, ja mennä hamaan Babeliin; mutta sinä päästetään taas sieltä, siellä on Herra sinun päästävä sinun vihollises kädestä.

11 Sillä monet pakanat pitää kokoontuman sinua vastaan, ja sanoman: hän on alttiiksi annettu, me tahdomme meidän himomme nähdä Zionista.

12 Mutta ei he Herran ajatuksista mitään tiedä, eikä ota vaaria hänen neuvostansa; sillä hän on hakenut heitä kokoon, niinkuin lyhteet riiheen.

13 Sentähden nouse ja tapa riihtä sinä Zionin tytär; sillä minä tahdon sinulle tehdä rautaiset sarvet ja vaskiset kynnet, ettäs paljon kansaa runtelet. Niin minä tahdon myös heidän tavaransa alttiiksi antaa Herralle, ja heidän hyvyytensä kaiken maailman hallitsialle.


Exploring the Meaning of Micah 4      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

Micah 4:1,2. When a church stops honoring what is good and what is true it comes to an end, and the Jehovah sets up a new church. 1 The prophesy of Micah, like many of the other prophecies in the Bible, tells about such a happening: the end of the Israelitish church, and the start of Christianity. 2 The older words are used because they still mean the same spiritual idea. Jehovah was Jacob's God,, just as He is our God today. Zion and Jerusalem still correspond to the good and truth of the Lord’s church. 3

Micah 4:3,4. In that new church - that "house of God" - everyone will have spiritual truth written on the heart. Changing weapons into farming tools, and not going to war anymore, means that people will agree about the Lord’s truth without any dispute, and - because there are no evils in that house - they will be safe and without fear.

Micah 4:5. The Word uses many names for God, and any name is okay when it means the one creator, savior and redeemer. 4

Micah 4:6. Of those who "go up", all who need help will be given what they need.

Micah 4:7. Jehovah shall reign over all who are walking in his ways. 5 Those who are outcasts mean those who can’t see where to walk. Those that are lame can’t walk. The outcasts will have their eyes opened, and the lame will have their legs healed.

Micah 4:8-10. The "daughter of Zion" 6 means the affection of truths and goods with those of the church. The bringing forth means the multiplication of goods and truths because of the affection for them. Inhabiting the field means that the church will learn truths of many kinds and may even understand what Babylon has spoiled. But there will be no harm there, since the Lord protects.

Micah 4:11, 12. Falsities want to infest those who belong to the Lord, but He protects them. People who hold those falsities will be “threshed”, or judged.

Micah 4:13. The goods and truths that the Lord provides are as “iron” or “bronze”. 7 The falsities that are to be “threshed” aren't as strong, and can’t withstand them.

There are a lot of truths here for us, and there are appealing images. If we "go up" -- try to learn the true ideas in Christianity, and to walk in the Lord's ways, there will be healing, and affection, and understanding, and multiplying good, and protection.
