Miqueas 2

1 ¡Ay de los que piensan iniquidad, y de los que fabrican el mal en sus camas! Cuando viene la mañana lo ponen en obra, porque tienen en su mano el poder.

2 Y codiciaron las heredades, y las robaron; y casas, y las tomaron; oprimieron al hombre y a su casa, al hombre y a su heredad.

3 Por tanto, así dijo el SEÑOR: He aquí, yo pienso sobre esta familia un mal, del cual no sacaréis vuestros cuellos, ni andaréis erguidos; porque el tiempo será malo.

4 En aquel tiempo se levantará sobre vosotros refrán, y se hará endecha de lamentación, diciendo: Del todo fuimos destruidos; ha cambiado la parte de mi pueblo. ¡Cómo nos quitó nuestros campos! Los dio, y los repartió a otros .

5 Por tanto, no tendrás quien eche cordel para suerte en la congregación del SEÑOR.

6 No profeticéis, dicen a los que profetizan; no les profeticen que los ha de comprender vergüenza.

7 La que te dices Casa de Jacob, ¿se ha acortado el espíritu del SEÑOR? ¿Son éstas sus obras? ¿Mis palabras no hacen bien al que camina derechamente?

8 El que ayer era mi pueblo, se ha levantado como enemigo; tras las vestiduras quitasteis las capas atrevidamente a los que pasaban, como los que vuelven de la guerra.

9 A las mujeres de mi pueblo echasteis fuera de las casas de sus delicias; a sus niños quitasteis mi perpetua alabanza.

10 Levantaos, y andad, que no es ésta el descanso; porque está contaminada, se corrompió, y de grande corrupción.

11 Si hubiere alguno andando con espíritu de falsedad mintiere diciendo : Yo te profetizaré de vino y de bebida fuerte; éste tal será profeta a este pueblo.

12 De cierto te reuniré todo, oh Jacob: recogeré ciertamente el resto de Israel; lo pondré junto como ovejas de Bosra, como rebaño en mitad de su majada; harán estruendo por la multitud de los hombres.

13 Subirá rompedor delante de ellos; romperán y pasarán la puerta, y saldrán por ella; y su Rey pasará delante de ellos, el SEÑOR por su cabeza.


Exploring the Meaning of Miqueas 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.
