1 (H4:14) Mutta hankitse nyt, sinä sotanainen: sillä meitä piiritetään; ja Israelin tuomaria vitsalla poskelle lyödään.

2 (H5:1) Ja sinä, Betlehem Ephrata, joka vähäinen olet Juudan tuhanten seassa, sinusta on minulle se tuleva, joka Israelissa on hallitsia oleva, jonka uloskäymys on ollut alusta ja ijankaikkisuudesta.

3 (H5:2) Hän antaa heitä siihen aikaan asti vaivattaa, kuin se on synnyttänyt, jonka pitää synnyttämän; ja jääneet hänen veljistänsä pitää tuleman jälleen Israelin lasten tykö.

4 (H5:3) Mutta hän on astuva edes, ja kaitseva Herran väkevyyden kautta, ja Herran Jumalansa nimen korkeuden kautta, ja heidän pitää levossa asuman; sillä hän on nyt kuuluisaksi tuleva niin lavialta kuin maailma on.

5 (H5:4) Me saamme myös rauhan Assurilta, joka nyt meidän maallemme tullut on, ja meidän huoneemme tallannut on; sillä häntä vastaan pitää seitsemän paimenta ja kahdeksan päämiestä herätettämän.

6 (H5:5) Jotka Assurin maan miekalla hävittävät, ja Nimrodin maan heidän omissansa; niin me Assurista päästetyksi tulemme, joka meidän maallemme tullut on, ja meidän rajamme tallannut on.

7 (H5:6) Ja jääneet Jakobissa pitää myös monen kansan seassa oleman, niinkuin kaste Herralta, ja niinkuin sateen pisarat ruoholla, joka ei ketään odota, eikä ihmistä tottele.

8 (H5:7) Ja jääneet Jakobista pitää pakanain seassa, monen kansan tykönä oleman, niinkuin jalopeura metsän petoin seassa, ja niinkuin nuori jalopeura lammaslauman seassa, jota ei kenkään voi karkottaa, kuin hän menee lävitse, sotkuu ja repelee.

9 (H5:8) Sinun kätes saa voiton kaikkia vihollisias vastaan, että kaikki sinun vihollises hävitetään.

10 (H5:9) Sillä ajalla, sanoo Herra, tahdon minä ottaa sinulta pois sinun hevoses, ja kadottaa sinun rattaas,

11 (H5:10) Ja tahdon sinun maas kaupungit hävittää, ja kaikki sinun linnas särkeä;

12 (H5:11) Ja tahdon velhot sinussa hävittää, ettei yksikään tietäjä pidä sinun tykönäs oleman.

13 (H5:12) Minä tahdon temmata pois sinun kuvas ja epäjumalas sinusta, ettei sinun pidä enää kumartaman sinun kättes tekoja.

14 (H5:13) Ja tahdon hakata maahan sinun metsistös, ja sinun kaupunkis hävittää.

15 (H5:14) Ja minä tahdon kostaa hirmuisuudella ja vihalla kaikki pakanat, jotka ei tahdo kuulla.



Exploring the Meaning of Micah 5      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

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.
