1 Jaj azoknak, a kik hamisságot gondolnak és a kik ágyasházukban gonoszságot cselekesznek, [és] végrehajtják azt, mihelyt megvirrad, mert hatalmuk van hozzá.

2 Megkívánják a mezõket és elrabolják, és a házakat és elszedik; és nyomorgatják a gazdát, és az õ házanépét az embert és az õ örökségét!

3 Annakokáért ezt mondja az Úr: Ímé, én [is] gonoszt gondolok e nemzetség ellen, melybõl ki nem vonhatjátok a ti nyakatokat és nem jártok kevélyen, mivel gonosz idõ lészen az!

4 Azon a napon példabeszéd támad rólatok, és siralmat sírnak, mondván: Oda van! elpusztultunk! Népem örökségét felcserélte! Miként rabolja el tõlem; hûtelennek osztja ki mezeinket!

5 Azért nem lesz néked, a ki mérõzsinórt vessen sors szerint az Úrnak gyülekezetében.

6 Ne prófétáljatok! prófétálnak õk. [Ha ]nem prófétálnak ezeknek, nem múlik el a gyalázat!

7 Oh te, ki Jákób házának mondatol! hát türelmetlen-é az Úrnak lelke, avagy ezek-é az õ cselekedetei? Nem javára válnak-é az én cselekedeteim annak, a ki igazán jár?

8 A minap mint egy ellenség támadt fel az én népem; a köntösrõl a palástot letépik a gyanútlanul járókról, a háborútól idegenkedõkrõl.

9 Népem asszonyait kiûzitek boldogságuk házából; kisdedeiktõl örökre elveszitek az én dicsõségemet.

10 Keljetek fel és menjetek ki, mert ez nem a nyugalomnak helye; a tisztátalanság miatt, a mely elveszít, és pedig borzasztó veszedelemmel!

11 Ha valamely szélházi és csalárd így hazudoznék: Prédikálok néked borról és részegítõ italról, az volna e népnek prófétája.

12 Mindenestõl egybegyûjtelek téged, Jákób! Összetakarítom Izráel maradékát. Összegyûjtöm õket, mint a boczrai juhokat, mint a nyájat az õ karámja közé; hemzsegnek majd az ember-sokaság miatt.

13 Elõttök megy fel az [út]törõ; kitörnek és átmennek a kapun és kivonulnak, és elõttök megy a királyuk, és élükön az Úr!



Exploring the Meaning of Mikeás 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.
