1 Az Úr igéje, a mely lõn a moreseti Mikeáshoz, Jótám, Akház és Ezékiásnak, Júda királyainak idejében, a melyet látott Samária és Jeruzsálem felõl.

2 Halljátok meg minden népek, figyelmezz föld és annak teljessége. És az Úr Isten legyen bizonyság ellenetek; az Úr az õ szent templomából!

3 Mert ímé, kijõ az Úr az õ helyérõl, és leszáll és lépdel a földnek magaslatain.

4 És szétmállanak alatta a hegyek, a völgyek pedig szétszakadoznak, mint a viasz a tûz elõtt, mint a meredekrõl leszakadó vizek.

5 A Jákób vétkéért lészen mindez, és az Izráel házának bûnei miatt! Micsoda a Jákób vétke? Avagy nem Samária-é? És mik a Júda magaslatai? Avagy nem Jeruzsálem-é?

6 De olyanná teszem Samáriát, mint a mezõben való kõrakás, szõlõ-plánták [helyévé;] és lezúdítom a völgybe az õ köveit, és még fundamentomit is kimutatom.

7 Faragott képei mind összetöretnek és minden ajándékát tûz égeti meg. Minden bálványait semmivé teszem; mert paráznaság bérébõl gyûjtögette azokat, azért ismét paráznaság bérévé legyenek.

8 E miatt kesergek és jajgatok; ruhátalan és mezítelen járok. Üvöltök, mint a sakálok, és sikongok, mint a struczmadarak.

9 Mert halálosak az õ sebei. Bizony Júdáig ér; népem kapujáig hatol, Jeruzsálemig.

10 Gáthban hírül ne adjátok; sírván ne sírjatok; Beth-le- Afrában porba heveredtem.

11 Költözzetek el, Safirnak lakója gyalázatos meztelenül! Nem vonult ki Saanán lakosa; Beth-Eselnek siralma nem enged tartózkodni.

12 Mert beteg lett Marótnak lakosa [az õ] java[i] miatt; mert veszedelem szállt le az Úrtól Jeruzsálemnek kapujára.

13 Gyors paripához kösd a szekeret, Lákisnak lakója! [ki] a bûnnek kezdõje valál a Sion leányánál. Bizony te benned találtatnak Izráel vétkei!

14 Azért adj válólevelet Moreset-Gátnak! Akzib házai megcsalják Izráel királyait.

15 Még hozok én te néked örököst, Marésa lakosa; Adullámig hat el Izráel dicsõsége!

16 Nyírd le, kopaszítsd meg magadat a te gyönyörûséges fiaidért! Szélesítsd meg kopaszságodat, mint a keselyû; mert rabságra vitettek el tõled!



Exploring the Meaning of Mikeás 1      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

The prophet Micah lived in the days of Hezekiah, the King of Judah, and the kings that preceded him. In 722 BC, in the fourth year of Hezekiah's reign, Shalmaneser, the King of Assyria, conquered the kingdom of Israel. This was the northern kingdom that had begun with Jeroboam, after Solomon's death, based around Samaria. The Assyrians led away its people, as described in 2 Kings 18:9.

Perhaps the Assyrian victory and the dispersal of the 10 lost tribes are related to Micah's prophecy, but - as in the other books of prophecy - at heart Micah is predicting broader spiritual events, especially the Lord's advent.

In Micah 1:1, 2, Micah starts out by proclaiming that the Lord is coming down as a witness against the people of the earth. Here the earth, internally, means the church - the Lord’s church which forms a connection between God and man. 1

Micah 1:3 says that Jehovah Himself will come down and restructure the church (meant by the earth) and will form a new heaven for that church. 2

In Micah 1:4-7 shows us an internal picture of the judgment on the Israelitish and Jewish churches. Mountains, valleys, fire, and water are all mentioned; all are representations of spiritual realities. When people of the church remember what those realities are, they will come to mind when they worship on a mountain, or treat the fire on the altar as holy. But when the spiritual meanings are forgotten, the representative things are done away with. This was true of both Samaria and Judah (Micah 1:5). 3

Verses 6 and 7 show the wickedness of Samaria, and what will happen to the idols there. 4 From its inception, the northern kingdom of Israel never had a good king. It had, as idols, the two golden calves that Jeroboam set up. All this will be destroyed.

Micah 1:8, 9 tell of the mourning of the people who love what is good, as far as Judah and even Jerusalem, which represents heaven.

However, in Micah 1:10-11, there's a mourning over the punishment as witnessed in some cities, which mean those doctrines that are used to try to justify the idolatry. But the anger is misdirected: people are angry with Jehovah, and not with the sins of idolatry that cause the punishment.

Micah 1:12 describes the mourning about the devastation of the church, which extends through all the heavens, even up to the highest.

In Micah 1:13-15, he's saying that the sins that were widespread in Israel, or Samaria, have also spread to the kingdom of Judah. To come to Adullam means to turn oneself towards evil.

Finally, in Micah 1:16, baldness means a lack of truths. Delightful sons are truths from God. Making yourself bald by shearing off your hair means you are spiritually denying the truths from God, i.e. that you are exiling yourself from your delightful sons. Consequently, everyone suffers deprivation. 5

To apply this to our lives... here's what it looks like:
1. We should turn away from evil and actively seek spiritual truths.
2. We shouldn't set up false gods in our lives, e.g things that we "worship" that really aren't useful.
3. We should try to look for the Lord in the Word, and to connect with Him.
