Михей 7

1 Горе мне! ибо со мною теперь – как по собрании летних плодов, как по уборке винограда: ни одной ягоды для еды, ни спелого плода, которого желает душа моя.

2 Не стало милосердых на земле, нет правдивых между людьми; все строят ковы, чтобы проливать кровь; каждый ставит брату своему сеть.

3 Руки их обращены к тому, чтобы уметь делать зло; начальник требует подарков, и судья судит за взятки, а вельможи высказывают злые хотения души своей и извращают дело.

4 Лучший из них – как терн, и справедливый – хуже колючей изгороди, день провозвестников Твоих, посещение Твое наступает; ныне постигнет их смятение.

5 Не верьте другу, не полагайтесь на приятеля; от лежащей на лоне твоем стереги двери уст твоих.

6 Ибо сын позорит отца, дочь восстает против матери, невестка – против свекрови своей; враги человеку – домашние его.

7 А я буду взирать на Господа, уповать на Бога спасения моего: Бог мой услышит меня.

8 Не радуйся ради меня, неприятельница моя! хотя я упал, но встану; хотяя во мраке, но Господь свет для меня.

9 Гнев Господень я буду нести, потому что согрешил пред Ним, доколе Он не решит дела моего и не совершит суда надо мною; тогда Он выведет меня на свет, и я увижу правду Его.

10 И увидит это неприятельница моя и стыд покроет ее, говорившую мне: „где Господь Бог твой?" Насмотрятся на нее глаза мои, как она будет попираема подобно грязи на улицах.

11 В день сооружения стен твоих, в этот день отдалится определение.

12 В тот день придут к тебе из Ассирии и городов Египетских, и от Египта до реки Евфрата , и от моря до моря, и от горы до горы.

13 А земля та будет пустынею за вину жителей ее, за плоды деяний их.

14 Паси народ Твой жезлом Твоим, овец наследия Твоего, обитающихуединенно в лесу среди Кармила; да пасутся они на Васане и Галааде, как во дни древние!

15 Как во дни исхода твоего из земли Египетской, явлю ему дивные дела.

16 Увидят это народы и устыдятся при всем могуществе своем; положатруку на уста, уши их сделаются глухими;

17 будут лизать прах как змея, как черви земные выползут они из укреплений своих; устрашатся Господа Бога нашего и убоятся Тебя.

18 Кто Бог, как Ты, прощающий беззаконие и не вменяющий преступления остатку наследия Твоего? не вечно гневается Он, потому что любит миловать.

19 Он опять умилосердится над нами, изгладит беззакония наши. Ты ввергнешь в пучину морскую все грехи наши.

20 Ты явишь верность Иакову, милость Аврааму, которую с клятвою обещал отцам нашим от дней первых.

In this last chapter of his book, in Micah 7:1-4, the prophet is discouraged about the evil that he sees in the land. The cluster (of grapes ) that he doesn’t see means that there is no love of the neighbor there. 1 The firstfruits that his soul longs for mean the upright kind of ordinary life 2 , which he can’t find: “the faithful man has perished from the earth”.

The net in verse 2 is the twisting of truth into falsity and the other way round, to deceive. Those who should be faithful leaders are diving into evil, and take bribes. All this hellish behavior will in the end lead to punishment.

In Micah 7:5, 6, these two verses are really not talking about other people; friends, companions, wives or husbands, or in-laws. When Micah refers to a “man’s household” he is talking about the evil loves that live in our own will. That’s where the evil is that we must fear and stamp out. 3

Micah 7:7-9 shows the path away from evil. God will hear us. But we must see that we have sinned and admit it to the Lord 4 , and ask for His help in stopping. He will be a light in our “darkness”. Micah admits his own weakness and admits that only the Lord’s power can "bring him forth to the light".

In Micah 7:10, "She" represents the affection for doing some kind of evil. Everyone has some sort of affections that way. 5 Those affections will try to persuade us that Jehovah can’t help, but if we persist in calling on Him for help, those affections can be shamed and eventually be trampled into the mud.

Micah 7:11, 12 says that when the Lord comes to found a new church, it will spread. Assyria here means reasoning, and Egypt means natural science. Cities mean doctrine from truth, and mountains mean goods, so the picture is of the spreading of both truth and good from one boundary to the other, all the way from natural truths to reasoning about spiritual things -- our whole mind. 6

But the old church will be desolate, according to Micah 7:13.

In Micah 7:14,15, to pasture means to feed the flock as a shepherd 7 , or to teach the truths that the Lord provides. The forest means the church as to truth, and Carmel means the church as to good. 8 Bashan and Gilead mean the same ideas from the stories of the Word, the literal sense.

Nations, in Micah 7:16, 17, mean people outside who don’t know, and don’t want to hear. They will stay focused on physical and sensory things, and will be in dread about knowledge of God.

Then, in Micah 7:18-20, Micah ends on a positive note: God will continue to have compassion on everyone and try to bring them to walk in His ways. Although we are all in freedom to be evil, He will never stop trying to lead us out of it if we will listen.
