1 Men du Betlehem, Efrata, som er liten til å være med blandt Judas tusener*! Av dig skal det utgå for mig en som skal være hersker over Israel, og hans utgang er fra fordum, fra evighets dager. / {* større avdelinger av stammene.}

2 Derfor skal han overgi dem inntil den tid da hun som skal føde, har født; og de som blir igjen av hans brødre*, skal vende tilbake sammen med Israels barn. / {* d.e. Judas barn; 2SA 19, 12.}

3 Og han skal stå og vokte sin hjord i Herrens kraft, i Herrens, sin Guds navns høihet; og de skal sitte i ro, for nu skal han være stor like til jordens ender.

4 Og han skal være fred; når Assur kommer inn i vårt land, og når han treder inn i våre palasser, så reiser vi mot ham syv hyrder, ja åtte menneskefyrster,

5 og de skal herje Assurs land med sverd og Nimrods land* i dets porter; og han skal frelse fra Assur når han kommer i vårt land, og når han treder inn på våre enemerker. / {* 1MO 10, 8 fg.}

6 Og Jakobs rest skal være midt iblandt mange folk som dugg fra Herren, som en regnskur på urter, som ikke bier på nogen og ikke venter på menneskenes barn.

7 Og Jakobs rest skal være blandt hedningefolkene, midt iblandt mange folk, som en løve blandt skogens dyr, som en ungløve blandt fårehjorder, som trår ned og sønderriver hvor den farer frem, og det er ingen som redder.

8 Høi være din hånd over dine motstandere! Måtte alle dine fiender bli utryddet!

9 Og det skal skje på den dag, sier Herren, at jeg vil utrydde alle de hester du har, og tilintetgjøre dine vogner.

10 Og jeg vil utrydde byene i ditt land og bryte ned alle dine festninger.

11 Og jeg vil utrydde all trolldom hos dig, og folk som spår av skyene, skal ikke lenger finnes hos dig.

12 Og jeg vil utrydde dine utskårne billeder og dine billedstøtter av ditt land, og du skal ikke mere tilbede dine henders verk.

13 Og jeg vil rive op Astartebilledene i ditt land og ødelegge dine byer.

14 Og jeg vil i vrede og harme ta hevn over de hedningefolk som ikke vilde høre.



Exploring the Meaning of Mika 5      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Micah 5:1, a troop means the good that comes from truth. But... what is a good that comes from truth? Here's a mundane example: you know that it's true that it's safer to buckle your seat belt, so you do it; it's a good action that comes from knowing a truth.

In this verse, a daughter means affection, so it's talking about an affection for doing such good actions. A siege against that would be bad ideas trying to get in, and to smite on the jaw with a rod means to destroy falsities. The prophecy in verse 2 has this in mind. This is what Jesus is being born to do, to lift the siege of false ideas.

In Micah 5:2, we find the familiar prophecy about where the Lord will be born.

Then, in Micah 5:3, 4, there's reference to the Lord gathering the people of His church and teaching them. The term used for the people of the church here is "brothers", as they all address the Lord as Father. The same is true of “the sons of Israel”. "She which travails" is a reference to the woman clothed with the sun spoken of in the book of Revelation.

In Micah 5:5, 6, Assyria means reasoning. Reasoning from the truths taught, as meant by the feeding in verse 4, can bring agreement and peace. But reasoning from the falsity that Assyria brings in must be destroyed. The seven shepherds and eight princely men means a total deliverance from their falsity. Seven means something holy, and eight means complete conjunction.

In Micah 5:7, some of the people left behind were good and had stayed apart from the idolatry of the Israelite kingdom. These remnants could come to the new church the Lord was establishing, where they could be saved. But the vast bulk of the people were led away to captivity not only to physical slavery, but - spiritually - to reasoning from falsity, which becomes a form of slavery, too.

Micah 5:8. The lion and young lion, trampling and tearing are the evil and falsity of the kingdom of Judah, and there will be no support there for the church the Lord will establish.

Micah 5:9. The Lord’s church will win.

Micah 5:10-15. The Lord will establish a new church when He "bows the heavens and comes down" but He will not destroy the physical things that are listed here. It will really be a desrtuction caused by people who operate from selfishness, greed, ignorance, indifference, and love of power.

Horses mean someone’s understanding, and chariots their own false doctrine. Cities mean more general doctrine, and fortresses symbolize their strong opinions. Graven images are idols, i.e. false gods.

The Lord’s anger and vengeance are only appearances in people's imaginations. It's the way they feel when they want what is evil. When evil loves conflict, everyone is going to get angry with everyone else. The Lord would greet them with love if only they would mend their ways.
