1 Teško onima koji smišljaju bezakonje i o zlu se trude na posteljama svojim, i kad svane izvršuju, jer im je sila u ruci.

2 Žele njive, i otimaju ih; žele kuće, i uzimaju; čine silu čoveku i kući njegovoj, čoveku i nasledstvu njegovom.

3 Zato ovako veli Gospod: Evo, ja mislim zlo tom rodu, iz kog nećete izvući vratove svoje, niti ćete hoditi ponosito, jer će biti zlo vreme.

4 U ono vreme govoriće se priča o vama, i naricaće se žalosno govoreći: Propadosmo; promeni deo naroda mog. Kako mi uze! Uzevši njive naše razdeli.

5 Zato nećeš imati nikoga ko bi ti povukao uže za žreb u zboru Gospodnjem.

6 Nemojte prorokovati, neka oni prorokuju; ako im ne prorokuju, neće odstupiti sramota.

7 O ti, koji se zoveš dom Jakovljev, je li se umalio Duh Gospodnji? Jesu li to dela Njegova? Eda li moje reči nisu dobre onome koji hodi pravo?

8 A narod se moj pre podiže kao neprijatelj; preko haljine skidate plašt s onih koji prolaze ne bojeći se, koji se vraćaju iz boja.

9 Žene naroda mog izgonite iz milih kuća njihovih, od dece njihove otimate slavu moju navek.

10 Ustanite i idite, jer ovo nije počivalište; što se oskvrni, pogubiće vas pogiblju velikom.

11 Ako ko hodi za vetrom i kazuje laži govoreći: Prorokovaću ti za vino i za silovito piće, taj će biti prorok ovom narodu.

12 Doista ću te sabrati svog, Jakove, doista ću skupiti ostatak Izrailjev; postaviću ih zajedno kao ovce vosorske, kao stado usred tora njihovog, biće vreva od ljudstva.

13 Pred njima će ići koji razbija; oni će razbiti i proći kroz vrata, i izaći će; i car će njihov ići Pred njima, i Gospod će biti Pred njima.


Exploring the Meaning of Mihej 2      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

Premeditated evil is worse than evil done on the spur of the moment, because the will to do evil is more involved. In Micah 2:1, 2, the hand represents power 1 , and when the evildoer treats his power as his god, the penalty is great. The planning that goes into coveting is a similar thing.

In Micah 2:3-5, the family means the church - the state of spiritual life - as it was in both kingdoms, Israel and Judah. The words here tell that both these parts of the church will be devastated, first one and then the other. Thus, in the end, there will be none left in the land of Canaan, and there will be no choosing of inheritance, as was done with Joshua back when the land was first divided amongst the 12 tribes. (See Joshua 13 through 16). To cast a cord is to use a measuring cord to plot out a piece of land.

Micah 2:6, 7. To drop down means to drop knowledge down to one who does not know, that is, to teach. Those who are in evil are not humble enough to be taught. Only those who “walk uprightly” profit from teaching about the Lord and His Word.

Micah 2:8,9. People who are not humble enough to learn truths become enemies to good people. They will try to argue away the truths from someone who uses them to fight temptations. In these verses, the stolen garment means truths 2 . The war means temptations. The gentle love of feeling close to the Lord, and the love of innocence 3 , will be attacked by evil people who will try to destroy them by scoffing and denial.

Micah 2:10, 11. The unteachable people of that dying church will perish. They will only accept teachings from a prophet who promises wine and strong drink. In a good sense, wine in the Word represents truth, as when it's used in the holy supper. But, like all natural things, the meaning can sometimes be used in the opposite way, as here, where it means the falsities of evil. 4

Micah 2:12, 13. There will still be a few people who remain good, and true. These will be gathered by the Lord as a flock to its fold. From their speaking they can be judged, and then led on to the new church established by Jehovah.

The takeaways for us, reading this text 2600 years later, could be boiled down to these truths:
- Don't premeditate evil.
- We need to be humble enough to learn truths about the Lord.
- If we walk uprightly, we have a chance to receive truth, and practice it, and benefit from what we learn.
- If we remain good and true, the Lord can lead us.
