1 Y dije: Oíd ahora, príncipes de Jacob, y cabezas de la Casa de Israel: ¿No pertenecía a vosotros saber el derecho?

2 Que aborrecen lo bueno y aman lo malo, que les roban su cuero y su carne de sobre sus huesos;

3 Y que comen la carne de mi pueblo, y les desuellan su cuero de sobre ellos, y les quebrantan sus huesos y los rompen, como para echar en caldero, y como carnes en olla.

4 Entonces clamarán al SEÑOR y no les responderá; antes esconderá de ellos su rostro en aquel tiempo, por cuanto hicieron malas obras.

5 Así ha dicho el SEÑOR acerca de los profetas que hacen errar a mi pueblo, que muerden con sus dientes, y claman: Paz, y al que no les diere que coman, aplazan contra él batalla;

6 por tanto, de la visión se os hará noche, y oscuridad del adivinar; y sobre los profetas se pondrá el sol, y el día se entenebrecerá sobre ellos.

7 Y serán avergonzados los profetas, y se confundirán los adivinos; y ellos todos cubrirán su labio, porque no tendrán respuesta de Dios.

8 Pero yo estoy lleno de fuerza del Espíritu del SEÑOR, y de juicio, y de fortaleza, para denunciar a Jacob su rebelión, y a Israel su pecado.

9 Oíd ahora esto, cabezas de la Casa de Jacob, y capitanes de la Casa de Israel, que abomináis el juicio, y pervertís todo el derecho;

10 que edificáis a Sion con sangre, y a Jerusalén con injusticia;

11 sus cabezas juzgan por cohecho, y sus sacerdotes enseñan por precio, y sus profetas adivinan por dinero; y se arriman al SEÑOR diciendo: ¿no está el SEÑOR entre nosotros? No vendrá mal sobre nosotros.

12 Por tanto, a causa de vosotros Sion será arada como campo, y Jerusalén será montones de ruinas, y el monte de la Casa como cumbres de bosque.



Exploring the Meaning of Miqueas 3      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

In Micah 3:1-3, Micah speaks to the wicked leaders of Jacob and Israel: "Aren’t you supposed to know Judgment? You hate the good and love the evil."

Here, peoples' bones stand for the things they know. Their muscles represent the things they love. The flesh and skin are things about them that are more and more external. 1

And here, Micah is saying that if any of these things, no matter how external, are still good, the evil leaders wish to destroy them.

Micah 3:4. If those destructive leaders cry out to Jehovah for help, He will not hear them.

Micah 3:5-7. These verses are pretty plain as to what they are saying to those wicked leaders: They will end up in darkness. 2 They can prophesy nothing true, because they are so perverted that they know nothing about truth.

In 3:8, Micah says that he has the spirit of Jehovah and can truly prophesy.

In 3:9-11, Micah tells those "heads" and "captains" just how evil they have been, and that still they claim that God is with them. Because they have falsified all truth and good, they can’t tell the difference anymore.

Finally, in verse 12, because of all this, Zion and Jerusalem, meaning the whole of the Israelitish church, will cease to be a representative of the Lord’s ongoing church on earth. 3

Applying this, today... there are a couple of very powerful ideas in this chapter. One is that evil hates good, and wants to destroy even remnants of it. Another scary idea here is that human beings can get to the point of not being able to tell the difference between what's true, and what's false, or between what's good, and what's evil.
