1 Men det skall ske i kommande dagar att det berg där HERRENS hus är skall stå där fast grundat, ypperst ibland bergen, och vara upphöjt över andra höjder; och folk skall strömma ditupp,

2 ja, många hednafolk skola åstad och skola säga: »Upp, låt oss draga åstad till HERRENS berg, upp till Jakobs Guds hus, för att han må undervisa oss om sina vägar, så att vi kunna vandra på hans stigar.» Ty från Sion skall lag utgå, och HERRENS ord från Jerusalem.

3 Och han skall döma mellan många folk och skipa rätt åt mäktiga hednafolk, ända bort i fjärran land. Då skola de smida sina svärd till plogbillar och sina spjut till vingårdsknivar. Folken skola ej mer lyfta svärd mot varandra och icke mer lära sig att strida.

4 Och var och en skall sitta under sitt vinträd och sitt fikonträd, och ingen skall förskräcka honom; ty så har HERREN Sebaots mun talat.

5 Ja, alla andra folk vandra vart och ett i sin guds namn, men vi vilja vandra i HERRENS, vår guds, namn, alltid och evinnerligen.

6 På den dagen, säger HERREN, skall jag församla de haltande och hämta tillhopa de fördrivna och dem som jag har hemsökt med olyckor.

7 Och jag skall låta de haltande bliva en kvarleva och de långt bort förjagade ett mäktigt folk; och HERREN skall vara konung över dem på Sions berg från nu och till evig tid.

8 Och du Herdetorn, du dotter Sions kulle, till dig skall det komma, ja, till dig skall det återvända, det forna herradömet, dottern Jerusalems konungavälde.

9 Men varför skriar du nu så högt? Finnes då ingen konung i dig, har du icke mer någon rådklok man, eftersom ångest, lik en barnaföderskas, har gripit dig?

10 Ja, väl må du vrida dig i födslosmärtor såsom en barnaföderska, du dotter Sion; ty nu måste du ut ur staden, du måste bo på öppna fältet; ja, du skall komma ända till Babel -- där skall du finna räddning, där skall HERREN förlossa dig ur dina fienders hand.

11 Nu hava många hednafolk församlat sig mot dig, och de säga: »Må hon varda skändad, så att våra ögon få skåda med lust på Sion.»

12 Men dessa känna icke HERRENS tankar, de förstå icke hans rådslut, att han har samlat dem såsom kärvar till tröskplatsen.

13 Upp då och tröska, du dotter Sion! Ty jag skall giva dig horn av järn och giva dig klövar av koppar, för att du må sönderkrossa många folk. Och deras byte skall du giva till spillo åt HERREN och deras skatter åt hela jordens HERRE.


Exploring the Meaning of Mika 4      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

Micah 4:1,2. When a church stops honoring what is good and what is true it comes to an end, and the Jehovah sets up a new church. 1 The prophesy of Micah, like many of the other prophecies in the Bible, tells about such a happening: the end of the Israelitish church, and the start of Christianity. 2 The older words are used because they still mean the same spiritual idea. Jehovah was Jacob's God,, just as He is our God today. Zion and Jerusalem still correspond to the good and truth of the Lord’s church. 3

Micah 4:3,4. In that new church - that "house of God" - everyone will have spiritual truth written on the heart. Changing weapons into farming tools, and not going to war anymore, means that people will agree about the Lord’s truth without any dispute, and - because there are no evils in that house - they will be safe and without fear.

Micah 4:5. The Word uses many names for God, and any name is okay when it means the one creator, savior and redeemer. 4

Micah 4:6. Of those who "go up", all who need help will be given what they need.

Micah 4:7. Jehovah shall reign over all who are walking in his ways. 5 Those who are outcasts mean those who can’t see where to walk. Those that are lame can’t walk. The outcasts will have their eyes opened, and the lame will have their legs healed.

Micah 4:8-10. The "daughter of Zion" 6 means the affection of truths and goods with those of the church. The bringing forth means the multiplication of goods and truths because of the affection for them. Inhabiting the field means that the church will learn truths of many kinds and may even understand what Babylon has spoiled. But there will be no harm there, since the Lord protects.

Micah 4:11, 12. Falsities want to infest those who belong to the Lord, but He protects them. People who hold those falsities will be “threshed”, or judged.

Micah 4:13. The goods and truths that the Lord provides are as “iron” or “bronze”. 7 The falsities that are to be “threshed” aren't as strong, and can’t withstand them.

There are a lot of truths here for us, and there are appealing images. If we "go up" -- try to learn the true ideas in Christianity, and to walk in the Lord's ways, there will be healing, and affection, and understanding, and multiplying good, and protection.
