Mica 2

1 Wehe denen, die Schaden zu tun trachten und gehen mit bösen Tücken um auf ihrem Lager, daß sie es früh, wenn es licht wird, vollbringen, weil sie die Macht haben!

2 Sie reißen zu sich Äcker und nehmen Häuser, welche sie gelüstet. Also treiben sie Gewalt mit eines jeden Hause und mit eines jeden Erbe.

3 Darum spricht der HERR also: Siehe, ich gedenke über dies Geschlecht Böses, aus dem ihr euren Hals nicht ziehen und nicht so stolz dahergehen sollet; denn es soll eine böse Zeit sein.

4 Zur selbigen Zeit wird man einen Spruch von euch machen und klagen: Es ist aus, wird man sagen; wir sind verstöret. Meines Volkes Land kriegt einen fremden HERRN. Wann wird er uns die Äcker wieder zuteilen, die er uns genommen hat?

5 Jawohl, ihr werdet kein Teil behalten in der Gemeine des HERRN.

6 Sie sagen, man solle nicht träufen; denn solche Träufe trifft uns nicht; wir werden nicht so zuschanden werden.

7 Das Haus Jakob tröstet sich also: Meinest du, des HERRN Geist sei verkürzt? Sollte er solches tun wollen? Es ist wahr, meine Reden sind freundlich den Frommen.

8 Aber mein Volk hat sich aufgemacht wie ein Feind; denn sie rauben beide, Rock und Mantel, denen, so sicher dahergehen, gleichwie die, so aus dem Kriege kommen.

9 Ihr treibet die Weiber meines Volks aus ihren lieben Häusern und nehmet stets von ihren jungen Kindern meinen Schmuck.

10 Darum machet euch auf; ihr müsset davon; ihr sollt hie nicht bleiben! Um ihrer Unreinigkeit willen müssen sie unsanft zerstöret werden.

11 Wenn ich ein Irrgeist wäre und ein Lügenprediger und predigte, wie sie saufen und schwelgen sollten, das wäre ein Prediger für dies Volk.

12 Ich will aber dich, Jakob, versammeln ganz und die übrigen in Israel zuhauf bringen; ich will sie wie eine Herde miteinander in einen festen Stall tun und wie eine Herde in seine Hürden, daß es von Menschen tönen soll.

13 Es wird ein Durchbrecher vor ihnen herauffahren; sie werden durchbrechen und zum Tor aus- und einziehen; und ihr König wird vor ihnen hergehen, und der HERR vornean.


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.
