1 DEH! ascoltate ciò che dice il Signore: Levati, litiga appo i monti, e odano i colli la tua voce.

2 Udite, o monti, e voi saldi fondamenti della terra, la lite del Signore; perciocchè il Signore ha una lite col suo popolo, e vuol contendere con Israele.

3 O popol mio, che t’ho io fatto? e in che t’ho io travagliato? testimonia pur contro a me.

4 Conciossiachè io t’abbia tratto fuor del paese di Egitto, e riscosso della casa di servitù; ed abbia mandati davanti a te Mosè, Aaronne, e Maria.

5 Deh! popol mio, ricordati qual consiglio prese Balac, re di Moab; e qual risposta gli diede Balaam, figliuolo di Beor; di ciò che ti avvenne da Sittim fino in Ghilgal; acciocchè tu riconosca le giustizie del Signore.

6 Con che verrò io davanti al Signore? con che m’inchinerò io all’Iddio altissimo? gli verrò io davanti con olocausti, con vitelli di un anno?

7 Il Signore avrà egli a grado le migliaia de’ montoni, le decine delle migliaia delle bestie delle valli grasse? darò il mio primogenito per lo mio misfatto? il frutto del mio ventre per lo peccato dell’anima mia?

8 O uomo, egli ti ha dichiarato ciò ch’è buono; e che richiede il Signore da te, se non che tu faccia ciò che è diritto, e ami benignità, e cammini in umiltà col tuo Dio?

9 La voce del Signore grida alla città e colui ch’è savio temerà il tuo Nome: Ascoltate la verga, e colui che l’ha fatta venire.

10 Non vi son eglino ancora nella casa dell’empio de’ tesori d’empietà, e l’efa scarso, che è cosa abbominevole?

11 Sarei io innocente, avendo bilance false, ed un sacchetto di pesi ingannevoli?

12 Perciocchè i ricchi di essa son ripieni di violenza, e i suoi abitanti ragionano falsità, e la lor lingua non è altro che frode nella lor bocca.

13 Perciò, io altresì ti renderò dolente, percotendoti, e desolandoti per li tuoi peccati.

14 Tu mangerai, e non sarai saziato; e il tuo abbassamento sarà dentro di te; tu darai di piglio, ma non salverai; e ciò che tu avrai salvato io lo darò alla spada.

15 Tu seminerai, e non mieterai; tu pesterai le ulive, e non ti ungerai dell’olio; e il mosto, e non berrai il vino.

16 Oltre a ciò, gli statuti di Omri, e tutte le opere della casa di Achab, sono state osservate; e voi siete camminati ne’ lor consigli; acciocchè io vi metta in desolazione, e gli abitanti di Gerusalemme in zufolo; e acciocchè voi portiate il vituperio del mio popolo.


Exploring the Meaning of Micah 6      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Micah 6:1-4, the Lord speaks of all that He has done for Israel, getting them out of Egypt where they were slaves. In Micah 6:5, he relates how He protected them from Balak, king of Moab (in Numbers 22-24).

Then, in Micah 6:6-8, the Lord asks, rhetorically, how the people should worship Him: “With calves of a year old?” and then goes on with a reference to the idol Moloch, “shall I give my firstborn for my transgression?” Obviously these external acts do no good at all without internal repentance and a stopping of any transgressions.

Then He answers the question. Micah says, “He has told thee oh man, what is good,” and continues the stirring, familiar words; "do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God". 1

Micah 6:9 is about humility. It's a really important idea that started to be a problem for humankind all the way back in the story of the Garden of Eden. To eat of the tree of “the knowledge of good and evil” is to take to oneself the right/ability to decide which is which, and not listen to what God says about it. To walk “humbly” is to listen to God. That’s the meaning of “hear ye the rod and who has appointed it.”

Micah 6:10-11 points out that there is still some falsification with these people. The lean ephah is a cheating on the amount of liquid in a pitcher, and liquids refer to truth. Stones are used as weights to balance a scale that weighs out a purchase of food, and deceitful stones will cheat the buyer. Food means a form of good.

In Micah 6:12, 13, the rich mean people who, because they know a lot about natural things, believe they are also wise about spiritual things. 2 Here they are wicked and love the life of evil and falsity, nor can they be changed.

Then, in Micah 6:14-16, the chapter ends with a list of the problems such people will face. To eat, in the good sense, is to take in good. However, the gifts given by people who are immersed in evils and falsities turn out to be false gifts. People try to get things that will make them happy, but it doesn’t happen. Olives and their oil mean good, and grapes and their juice mean truth. 3

What are the laws of Omri? Omri was one of the wickeder kings of Israel, and Ahab was the wickedest king of all. To follow them means desolation and reproach.

In some ways, this chapter is a lot like many others in the books of the prophets. And yet, for centuries it has stood out, because it contains one of the Word's most powerful, concise, statements of how we should live: "Do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God."
