1 Agora, ajunta-te em tropas, ó filha de tropas; pôr-se-á cerco contra nós; ferirão com a vara no queixo ao juiz de Israel.

2 Mas tu, Belém Efrata, posto que pequena para estar entre os milhares de Judá, de ti é que me sairá aquele que há de reinar em Israel, e cujas saídas são desde os tempos antigos, desde os dias da eternidade.

3 Portanto os entregará até o tempo em que a que está de parto tiver dado à luz; então o resto de seus irmãos voltará aos filhos de Israel.

4 E ele permanecerá, e apascentará o povo na força do Senhor, na excelência do nome do Senhor seu Deus; e eles permanecerão, porque agora ele será grande até os fins da terra.

5 E este será a nossa paz. Quando a Assíria entrar em nossa terra, e quando pisar em nossos palácios, então suscitaremos contra ela sete pastores e oito príncipes dentre os homems.

6 Esses consumirão a terra da Assíria à espada, e a terra de Ninrode nas suas entradas. Assim ele nos livrará da Assíria, quando entrar em nossa terra, e quando calcar os nossos termos.

7 E o resto de Jacó estará no meio de muitos povos, como orvalho da parte do Senhor, como chuvisco sobre a erva, que não espera pelo homem, nem aguarda filpios de homens.

8 Tambem o resto de Jacó estará entre as nações, no meio de muitos povos, como um leão entre os animais do bosque, como um leão novo entre os rebanhos de ovelhas, o qual, quando passar, as pisará e despedaçará, sem que haja quem as livre.

9 A tua mão será exaltada sobre os teus adversários e serão exterminados todos os seus inimigos.

10 Naquele dia, diz o Senhor, exterminarei do meio de ti os teus cavalos, e destrurei os teus carros;

11 destruirei as cidade da tua terra, e derribarei todas as tuas fortalezas.

12 Tirarei as feitiçarias da tua mão, e não terás adivinhadores;

13 arrancarei do meio de ti as tuas imagens esculpidas e as tuas colunas; e nao adorarás mais a obra das tuas mãos.

14 Do meio de ti arrancarei os teus aserins, e destruirei as tuas cidades.

15 E com ira e com furor exercerei vingança sobre as nações que não obedeceram.



Exploring the Meaning of Miquéias 5

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.
