1 Sa aba nila na humahaka ng kasamaan, at nagsisigawa ng kasamaan sa kanilang mga higaan! pagliliwanag sa umaga, ay kanilang isinasagawa, sapagka't nasa kapangyarihan ng kanilang kamay.

2 At sila'y nangagiimbot ng mga bukid, at kanilang inaangkin; at ng mga bahay, at inaalis: at kanilang pinipighati ang isang tao at ang kaniyang sangbahayan, ang tao, at ang kaniyang mana.

3 Kaya't ganito ang sabi ng Panginoon, Narito, laban sa angkang ito ay humahaka ako ng isang kasamaan na doo'y hindi ninyo maaalis ang inyong mga leeg, ni makalalakad man ng kahambugan; sapagka't isang masamang panahon.

4 Sa araw na yaon ay magsisisambit sila ng talinhaga laban sa inyo, at mangananaghoy ng kakilakilabot na panaghoy, at mangagsasabi, Kami ay lubos na nasira: kaniyang binabago ang bahagi ng aking bayan; ano't inilalayo niya sa akin! sa mga manghihimagsik kaniyang binahagi ang aming mga bukid.

5 Kaya't mawawalan ka na ng maghahagis ng pisi na panukat sa pamamagitan ng sapalaran sa kapisanan ng Panginoon.

6 Huwag kayong manganghuhula, ganito sila nanganghuhula. Hindi sila manganghuhula sa mga ito: ang mga kakutyaan ay hindi mapapawi.

7 Sasabihin baga Oh sangbahayan ni Jacob, Ang Espiritu baga ng Panginoon ay nagipit? ang mga ito baga ang kaniyang mga gawa? Di baga ang aking mga salita ay nagsisigawa ng mabuti sa nagsisilakad ng matuwid?

8 Nguni't kamakailan na ang aking bayan ay bumangon na wari kaaway: inyong hinuhubad ang suot na kalakip ng balabal sa nagsisidaang tiwasay na parang mga lalaking nagsisipanggaling sa digma.

9 Ang mga babae ng aking bayan ay inyong pinalalayas sa kanilang mga masayang bahay; sa kanilang mga bata ay inyong inaalis ang aking kaluwalhatian magpakailan man.

10 Kayo'y magsibangon, at magsiyaon; sapagka't hindi ito ang inyong kapahingahan; dahil sa karumihan na lumilipol sa makatuwid baga'y sa mahigpit na paggiba.

11 Kung ang isang taong lumalakad sa espiritu ng kabulaanan ay nagsisinungaling, na nagsasabi, Ako'y manghuhula sa iyo tungkol sa alak at matapang na inumin; siya nga'y magiging propeta sa bayang ito.

12 Walang pagsalang aking pipisanin, Oh Jacob, ang lahat ng iyo; aking pipisaning walang pagsala ang nalabi sa Israel: akin silang ilalagay na magkakasama na parang mga tupa sa Bosra, na parang kawan sa gitna ng pastulan sa kanila; sila'y magkakaingay ng di kawasa dahil sa karamihan ng tao.

13 Nangunguna sa kanila yaong nagbubukas ng daan: sila'y nagbukas ng daan at nagsidaan sa pintuang-bayan, at nagsilabas doon; at ang kanilang hari ay nagpauna sa kanila, at ang Panginoon sa unahan nila.


Exploring the Meaning of Mikas 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.
