Mica 2

1 Wehe denen, die Unheil sinnen und Böses vorbereiten auf ihren Lagern! Beim Morgenlicht führen sie es aus, weil es in der Macht ihrer Hand steht.

2 Und sie begehren nach Äckern und rauben sie, und nach Häusern und nehmen sie weg; und sie verüben Gewalttat an dem Manne und seinem Hause, an dem Menschen und seinem Erbteil.

3 Darum, so spricht Jehova: Siehe, ich sinne ein Unglück wider dieses Geschlecht, aus dem ihr eure Hälse nicht ziehen und unter welchem ihr nicht hoch einhergehen werdet; denn es ist eine böse Zeit.

4 An jenem Tage wird man einen Spruch über euch anheben und ein Klagelied anstimmen. Es ist geschehen! wird man sagen. Wir sind gänzlich verwüstet: das Teil meines Volkes vertauscht er; wie entzieht er es mir! Dem Abtrünnigen verteilt er unsere Felder.

5 Darum wirst du niemand haben, der in der Versammlung Jehovas die Meßschnur wirft, um ein Los zu bestimmen.

6 "Weissaget nicht", weissagen sie. Weissagt man nicht jenen, so wird die Schmach nicht weichen.

7 Du, Haus Jakob genannt, ist Jehova ungeduldig? Oder sind dies seine Taten? Sind meine Worte nicht gütig gegen den, der aufrichtig wandelt?

8 Aber noch unlängst lehnte sich mein Volk als Feind auf: vom Oberkleide ziehet ihr den Mantel denen ab, die sorglos vorübergehen, vom Kriege abgewandt sind;

9 die Weiber meines Volkes vertreibet ihr aus dem Hause ihrer Wonne, von ihren Kindern nehmet ihr meinen Schmuck auf immer. -

10 Machet euch auf und ziehet hin! Denn dieses Land ist der Ruheort nicht, um der Verunreinigung willen, die Verderben bringt, und zwar gewaltiges Verderben.

11 Wenn ein Mann da ist, der dem Winde nachgeht und betrügerisch lügt: "Ich will dir weissagen von Wein und von starkem Getränk", der wird ein Prophet dieses Volkes sein.

12 Sammeln werde ich dich, Jakob, ganz Sammeln; versammeln, ja, versammeln werde ich den Überrest Israels. Ich werde ihn zusammenbringen wie die Schafe von Bozra, wie eine Herde inmitten ihrer Trift; sie werden lärmen vor Menge der Menschen.

13 Der Durchbrecher zieht herauf vor ihnen her; sie brechen durch, und ziehen durch das Tor und gehen durch dasselbe hinaus; und ihr König zieht vor ihnen her, und Jehova an ihrer Spitze.


Exploring the Meaning of Mica 2      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

Premeditated evil is worse than evil done on the spur of the moment, because the will to do evil is more involved. In Micah 2:1, 2, the hand represents power 1 , and when the evildoer treats his power as his god, the penalty is great. The planning that goes into coveting is a similar thing.

In Micah 2:3-5, the family means the church - the state of spiritual life - as it was in both kingdoms, Israel and Judah. The words here tell that both these parts of the church will be devastated, first one and then the other. Thus, in the end, there will be none left in the land of Canaan, and there will be no choosing of inheritance, as was done with Joshua back when the land was first divided amongst the 12 tribes. (See Joshua 13 through 16). To cast a cord is to use a measuring cord to plot out a piece of land.

Micah 2:6, 7. To drop down means to drop knowledge down to one who does not know, that is, to teach. Those who are in evil are not humble enough to be taught. Only those who “walk uprightly” profit from teaching about the Lord and His Word.

Micah 2:8,9. People who are not humble enough to learn truths become enemies to good people. They will try to argue away the truths from someone who uses them to fight temptations. In these verses, the stolen garment means truths 2 . The war means temptations. The gentle love of feeling close to the Lord, and the love of innocence 3 , will be attacked by evil people who will try to destroy them by scoffing and denial.

Micah 2:10, 11. The unteachable people of that dying church will perish. They will only accept teachings from a prophet who promises wine and strong drink. In a good sense, wine in the Word represents truth, as when it's used in the holy supper. But, like all natural things, the meaning can sometimes be used in the opposite way, as here, where it means the falsities of evil. 4

Micah 2:12, 13. There will still be a few people who remain good, and true. These will be gathered by the Lord as a flock to its fold. From their speaking they can be judged, and then led on to the new church established by Jehovah.

The takeaways for us, reading this text 2600 years later, could be boiled down to these truths:
- Don't premeditate evil.
- We need to be humble enough to learn truths about the Lord.
- If we walk uprightly, we have a chance to receive truth, and practice it, and benefit from what we learn.
- If we remain good and true, the Lord can lead us.
