1 Reč Gospodnja koja dođe Miheju Moresećaninu za vremena Joatama, Ahaza i Jezekije, careva Judinih, što vide za Samariju i za Jerusalim.

2 Čujte, svi narodi, slušaj, zemljo i šta je na njoj, i Gospod Bog da vam je svedok, Gospod iz svete crkve svoje.

3 Jer, gle, Gospod izlazi iz mesta svog, i sići će, i hodiće po visinama zemaljskim.

4 I gore će se rastopiti pred Njim, i doline će se rasesti, kao vosak od ognja i kao voda što teče niz strmen.

5 Sve je to za zločinstvo Jakovljevo i za grehe doma Izrailjevog. Koje je zločinstvo Jakovljevo? Nije li Samarija? Koje su visine Judine? Nije li Jerusalim?

6 Zato ću učiniti od Samarije gomilu u polju da se sade vinogradi, i pobacaću kamenje njeno u dolinu i otkriću joj temelje.

7 I svi rezani likovi njeni razbiće se, i svi će se darovi njeni sažeći ognjem, i sve ću idole njene potrti, jer od plate kurvarske nakupi, i opet će biti plata kurvarska.

8 Zato ću plakati i ridati; hodiću svučen i go, plakaću kao zmajevi i tužiću kao sove.

9 Jer joj se rane ne mogu isceliti, dođoše do Jude, dopreše do vrata mog naroda, do Jerusalima.

10 Ne javljajte u Gatu, ne plačite; u Vit-Afri valjaj se po prahu.

11 Izađi, stanovnice safirska, s golom sramotom; stanovnica sananska neće izaći; žalost vet-ezilska neće vam dati stanka.

12 Jer stanovnica marotska tuži za svojim dobrom. Jer siđe zlo od Gospoda do vrata jerusalimskih.

13 Upregni brze konje u kola, stanovnice lahiska, koja si početak grehu kćeri sionskoj, jer se u tebi nađoše zločinstva Izrailjeva.

14 Zato pošalji darove Moresetu gatskom; domovi ahsivski prevariće careve Izrailjeve.

15 Još ću ti dovesti naslednika, stanovnice mariska; doći će do Odolama, slave Izrailjeve.

16 Načini se ćelava i ostriži se za milom decom svojom; raširi ćelu svoju kao orao, jer se vode od tebe u ropstvo.


Exploring the Meaning of Mihej 1

The prophet Micah lived in the days of Hezekiah, the King of Judah, and the kings that preceded him. In 722 BC, in the fourth year of Hezekiah's reign, Shalmaneser, the King of Assyria, conquered the kingdom of Israel. This was the northern kingdom that had begun with Jeroboam, after Solomon's death, based around Samaria. The Assyrians led away its people, as described in 2 Kings 18:9.

Perhaps the Assyrian victory and the dispersal of the 10 lost tribes are related to Micah's prophecy, but - as in the other books of prophecy - at heart Micah is predicting broader spiritual events, especially the Lord's advent.

In Micah 1:1, 2, Micah starts out by proclaiming that the Lord is coming down as a witness against the people of the earth. Here the earth, internally, means the church - the Lord’s church which forms a connection between God and man. 1

Micah 1:3 says that Jehovah Himself will come down and restructure the church (meant by the earth) and will form a new heaven for that church. 2

In Micah 1:4-7 shows us an internal picture of the judgment on the Israelitish and Jewish churches. Mountains, valleys, fire, and water are all mentioned; all are representations of spiritual realities. When people of the church remember what those realities are, they will come to mind when they worship on a mountain, or treat the fire on the altar as holy. But when the spiritual meanings are forgotten, the representative things are done away with. This was true of both Samaria and Judah (Micah 1:5). 3

Verses 6 and 7 show the wickedness of Samaria, and what will happen to the idols there. 4 From its inception, the northern kingdom of Israel never had a good king. It had, as idols, the two golden calves that Jeroboam set up. All this will be destroyed.

Micah 1:8, 9 tell of the mourning of the people who love what is good, as far as Judah and even Jerusalem, which represents heaven.

However, in Micah 1:10-11, there's a mourning over the punishment as witnessed in some cities, which mean those doctrines that are used to try to justify the idolatry. But the anger is misdirected: people are angry with Jehovah, and not with the sins of idolatry that cause the punishment.

Micah 1:12 describes the mourning about the devastation of the church, which extends through all the heavens, even up to the highest.

In Micah 1:13-15, he's saying that the sins that were widespread in Israel, or Samaria, have also spread to the kingdom of Judah. To come to Adullam means to turn oneself towards evil.

Finally, in Micah 1:16, baldness means a lack of truths. Delightful sons are truths from God. Making yourself bald by shearing off your hair means you are spiritually denying the truths from God, i.e. that you are exiling yourself from your delightful sons. Consequently, everyone suffers deprivation. 5

To apply this to our lives... here's what it looks like:
1. We should turn away from evil and actively seek spiritual truths.
2. We shouldn't set up false gods in our lives, e.g things that we "worship" that really aren't useful.
3. We should try to look for the Lord in the Word, and to connect with Him.
