Mica 3

1 Und ich sprach: Höret doch, ihr Häupter Jakobs und ihr Fürsten des Hauses Israel: Ich es nicht an euch, das echt zu kennen?

2 Die ihr das Gute hasset und das Böse liebet; die ihr ihnen die Haut abziehet und das Fleisch von ihren Gebeinen;

3 und die ihr das Fleisch meines Volkes fresset, und ihre Haut von ihnen abstreifet, und ihre Gebeine zerbrechet und zerstücket wie in einem Topfe und wie Fleisch inmitten des Kessels.

4 Dann werden sie zu Jehova schreien, und er wird ihnen nicht antworten; und er wird sein Angesicht vor ihnen verbergen zu jener Zeit, gleichwie sie ihre Handlungen böse gemacht haben.

5 So spricht Jehova über die Propheten, die mein Volk irreführen, welche mit ihren Zähnen beißen, und Frieden rufen (d. h. welche, wenn sie etwas mit ihren Zähnen zu beißen haben, Frieden (od. Wohlfahrt) verkündigen;) und wer ihnen nichts ins Maul gibt, wider den heiligen sie einen Krieg (S. die Anm. zu Jer. 6,4) :

6 Darum soll es euch Nacht werden, ohne Gesicht, und Finsternis werden, ohne Wahrsagung; und die Sonne wird über den Propheten untergehen, und der Tag über ihnen schwarz werden.

7 Und die Seher werden beschämt und die Wahrsager zu Schanden werden, und sie werden allesamt den Bart verhüllen, weil keine Antwort Gottes da ist.

8 Ich hingegen, ich bin mit Kraft erfüllt durch den Geist Jehovas, und mit echt und Stärke, um Jakob seine Übertretung (O. seinen Abfall) kundzutun und Israel seine Sünde.

9 Höret doch dieses, ihr Häupter des Hauses Jakob und ihr Fürsten des Hauses Israel, die ihr das echt verabscheuet und alles Gerade krümmet;

10 die ihr Zion mit Blut bauet und Jerusalem mit Unrecht.

11 Seine Häupter richten um Geschenke, und seine Priester lehren um Lohn, und seine Propheten wahrsagen um Geld; und sie stützen sich auf Jehova und sagen: Ist nicht Jehova in unserer Mitte? kein Unglück wird über uns kommen!

12 Darum wird euretwegen Zion als Acker gepflügt werden, und Jerusalem wird zu Trümmerhaufen und der Berg des Hauses zu Waldeshöhen werden (Vergl. Jer. 26,18.)


Exploring the Meaning of Mica 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.
