1 Aš tariau: “Klausykite jūs, Jokūbo vadai, Izraelio namų kunigaikščiai! Ar ne jūsų reikalas žinoti, kas teisinga?

2 Tačiau jūs nekenčiate gero, o mylite pikta; nulupate odą nuo mano žmonių ir mėsą nuo jų kaulų.

3 Jūs ėdate mano tautos kūną, nulupate jiems odą, sulaužote jų kaulus, sukapojate į gabalus kaip puodui, kaip mėsą katilui”.

4 Tada jie šauksis Viešpaties, bet Jis neatsakys jiems. Jis paslėps savo veidą nuo jų, nes jie elgėsi piktai.

5 Taip sako Viešpats apie pranašus, kurie suvedžioja mano tautą: “Jei jie turi ką kramtyti dantimis, jie šaukia: ‘Taika!’, o tiems, kurie jiems nieko neduoda, jie skelbia karą.

6 Todėl jums užeis naktis, kad neturėtumėte regėjimų, ir tamsa, kad negalėtumėte burti. Saulė nusileis pranašams, jų dienos aptems.

7 Tada regėtojai bus sugėdinti ir būrėjai užsičiaups, nes nebus atsakymo iš Dievo”.

8 Tačiau aš esu pilnas jėgos iš Viešpaties dvasios, teisybės bei drąsos skelbti Jokūbui jo nusikaltimą ir Izraeliui jo nuodėmę.

9 Klausykite, Jokūbo namų vadai, Izraelio namų kunigaikščiai, kurie paminate teisingumą ir iškraipote tiesą,

10 kurie statote Sioną krauju ir Jeruzalę neteisybe!

11 Jos vadai teisia už kyšius, kunigai moko už atlyginimą, pranašai pranašauja už pinigus, tačiau jie remiasi Viešpačiu, sakydami: “Argi Viešpaties nėra tarp mūsų? Nelaimė mūsų neužklups!”

12 Dėl jūsų kaltės Sionas bus ariamas laukas, Jeruzalė pavirs griuvėsiais, o šventyklos kalnas apaugs mišku.



Exploring the Meaning of Mikas 3      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Micah 3:1-3, Micah speaks to the wicked leaders of Jacob and Israel: "Aren’t you supposed to know Judgment? You hate the good and love the evil."

Here, peoples' bones stand for the things they know. Their muscles represent the things they love. The flesh and skin are things about them that are more and more external. 1

And here, Micah is saying that if any of these things, no matter how external, are still good, the evil leaders wish to destroy them.

Micah 3:4. If those destructive leaders cry out to Jehovah for help, He will not hear them.

Micah 3:5-7. These verses are pretty plain as to what they are saying to those wicked leaders: They will end up in darkness. 2 They can prophesy nothing true, because they are so perverted that they know nothing about truth.

In 3:8, Micah says that he has the spirit of Jehovah and can truly prophesy.

In 3:9-11, Micah tells those "heads" and "captains" just how evil they have been, and that still they claim that God is with them. Because they have falsified all truth and good, they can’t tell the difference anymore.

Finally, in verse 12, because of all this, Zion and Jerusalem, meaning the whole of the Israelitish church, will cease to be a representative of the Lord’s ongoing church on earth. 3

Applying this, today... there are a couple of very powerful ideas in this chapter. One is that evil hates good, and wants to destroy even remnants of it. Another scary idea here is that human beings can get to the point of not being able to tell the difference between what's true, and what's false, or between what's good, and what's evil.
