1 Je dis: Ecoutez, chefs de Jacob, Et princes de la maison d'Israël! N'est-ce pas à vous à connaître la justice?

2 Vous haïssez le bien et vous aimez le mal; Vous leur arrachez la peau et la chair de dessus les os.

3 Ils dévorent la chair de mon peuple, Lui arrachent la peau, Et lui brisent les os; Ils le mettent en pièces comme ce qu'on cuit dans un pot, Comme de la viande dans une chaudière.

4 Alors ils crieront vers l'Eternel, Mais il ne leur répondra pas; Il leur cachera sa face en ce temps-là, Parce qu'ils ont fait de mauvaises actions.

5 Ainsi parle l'Eternel sur les prophètes qui égarent mon peuple, Qui annoncent la paix si leurs dents ont quelque chose à mordre, Et qui publient la guerre si on ne leur met rien dans la bouche:

6 A cause de cela, vous aurez la nuit..., et plus de visions! Vous aurez les ténèbres..., et plus d'oracles! Le soleil se couchera sur ces prophètes, Le jour s'obscurcira sur eux.

7 Les voyants seront confus, les devins rougiront, Tous se couvriront la barbe; Car Dieu ne répondra pas.

8 Mais moi, je suis rempli de force, de l'esprit de l'Eternel, Je suis rempli de justice et de vigueur, Pour faire connaître à Jacob son crime, Et à Israël son péché.

9 Ecoutez donc ceci, chefs de la maison de Jacob, Et princes de la maison d'Israël, Vous qui avez en horreur la justice, Et qui pervertissez tout ce qui est droit,

10 Vous qui bâtissez Sion avec le sang, Et Jérusalem avec l'iniquité!

11 Ses chefs jugent pour des présents, Ses sacrificateurs enseignent pour un salaire, Et ses prophètes prédisent pour de l'argent; Et ils osent s'appuyer sur l'Eternel, ils disent: l'Eternel n'est-il pas au milieu de nous? Le malheur ne nous atteindra pas.

12 C'est pourquoi, à cause de vous, Sion sera labourée comme un champ, Jérusalem deviendra un monceau de pierres, Et la montagne du temple une sommité couverte de bois.



Exploring the Meaning of Michée 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.
