1 Vargas tiems, kurie planuoja neteisybes ir piktybę gulėdami lovose, kad jas įvykdytų rytui išaušus, nes jie turi tam galios.

2 Jie užsigeidžia laukų­ir pagrobia juos, namų­ir atima juos. Jie apiplėšia žmogų ir jo namus, savininką ir jo nuosavybę.

3 Todėl Viešpats taip sako: “ uošiu šitai giminei nelaimę ir jos nenusimesite nuo savo sprandų, ir nevaikščiosite, iškėlę galvas, nes laikas bus piktas”.

4 Tada sakys apie jus patarlę ir užtrauks graudulingą raudą: “Mes esame visiškai sunaikinti, mūsų tautos nuosavybė atiteko svetimiems. Jis atima žemę, išdalina mūsų laukus kitiems”.

5 Todėl tu neturėsi nė vieno, kuris, mesdamas burtą, matuotų tau dalį Viešpaties bendruomenėje.

6 Jie šaukia pranašams: “Nepranašaukite mums taip! To niekad nebus!”

7 Jūs, vadinami Jokūbo namais! Argi Viešpaties dvasia apribota? Argi tokie Jo darbai? Argi mano žodžiai nėra geri tiems, kurie elgiasi teisingai?

8 Tie, kurie buvo mano tauta, pakilo kaip priešai! Jūs nutraukiate apsiaustą nuo ramiai einančių keliu, visai negalvojančių apie karą.

9 Mano tautos moteris išvarėte iš jų gražių namų, iš jų vaikų amžiams atėmėte mano šlovę.

10 Išeikite, nes ši šalis nėra poilsio vieta. Ji buvo sutepta, todėl ji bus žiauriai sunaikinta.

11 Jei kas meluotų ir pataikautų, kalbėdamas apie vyną ir stiprius gėrimus, tas būtų priimtinas pranašas šitiems žmonėms!

12 Aš surinksiu tave, Jokūbai, visą Izraelio likutį, surinksiu kaip avis garde, kaip bandą ganykloje, ir girdėsis žmonių minios klegėjimas.

13 Pralaužėjas eis priekyje jų, jie prasilauš ir išeis pro vartus; jų karalius eis pirma jų, o Viešpats visų priekyje.



Exploring the Meaning of Mikas 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.
