1 Sa aba ko! sapagka't ako'y gaya ng kanilang pisanin ang mga bunga sa taginit, gaya ng mga pamumulot ng ubas sa ubasan: walang kumpol na makain; ako'y nananabik sa unang bunga ng igos.

2 Ang mabuting tao ay namatay sa lupa, at wala nang matuwid sa mga tao: silang lahat ay nagsisibakay upang magbubo ng dugo; hinuhuli ng bawa't isa ang kaniyang kapatid sa pamamagitan ng silo.

3 Ang kanilang mga kamay ay nangasa kasamaan upang sikaping isagawa; ang prinsipe ay humihingi, at ang hukom ay maagap sa suhol; at ang dakilang tao ay nangagsasalita ng masamang hangad ng kaniyang kaluluwa: ganito nila nilalala.

4 Ang pinakamahusay sa kanila ay parang dawag; ang pinakamatuwid ay masama kay sa isang bakod na tinikan: ang araw ng inihula sa iyo ng mga bantay, sa makatuwid baga'y ang araw ng pagdalaw sa iyo, ay dumating; ngayo'y mangatitigilan sila.

5 Huwag kayong magsitiwala sa kalapit bahay; huwag kayong magkatiwala sa kaibigan; ingatan mo ang mga pinto ng inyong bibig sa kaniya na humihiga sa inyong sinapupunan.

6 Sapagka't sinisiraang puri ng anak na lalake ang ama, ang anak na babae ay tumitindig laban sa kaniyang ina, ang manugang na babae ay laban sa kaniyang biyanang babae; ang mga kaaway ng tao ay ang kaniyang sariling kasangbahay.

7 Nguni't sa ganang akin, ako'y titingin sa Panginoon; ako'y maghihintay sa Dios ng aking kaligtasan: didinggin ako ng aking Dios.

8 Huwag kang magalak laban sa akin, Oh aking kaaway: pagka ako'y nabuwal, ako'y babangon; pagka ako'y naupo sa kadiliman, ang Panginoo'y magiging ilaw sa akin.

9 Aking babatahin ang kagalitan ng Panginoon, sapagka't ako'y nagkasala laban sa kaniya, hanggang sa kaniyang ipagsanggalang ang aking usap, at lapatan ako ng kahatulan: kaniyang ilalabas ako sa liwanag, at aking mamasdan ang kaniyang katuwiran.

10 Kung magkagayo'y makikita ng aking kaaway, at kahihiyan ang tatakip sa kaniya, na nagsabi sa akin, Saan nandoon ang Panginoon mong Dios? Makikita ng aking mga mata ang nais ko sa kaniya; siya nga'y yayapakan na parang putik sa mga lansangan.

11 Kaarawan ng pagtatayo ng iyong mga kuta! sa kaarawang yaon ay malalayo ang pasiya.

12 Sa kaarawang yaon ay magsisiparoon sila sa iyo mula sa Asiria at sa mga bayan ng Egipto, at mula sa Egipto hanggang sa ilog, at mula sa dagat at dagat, at sa bundok at bundok.

13 Gayon ma'y masisira ang lupain dahil sa kanila na nagsisitahan doon, dahil sa bunga ng kanilang mga gawa.

14 Pakanin mo ang iyong bayan sa pamamagitan ng iyong tungkod, ang kawan na iyong mana, na tumatahang magisa, sa gubat sa gitna ng Carmelo: pakanin mo sila sa Basan at sa Galaad, gaya ng mga araw nang una.

15 Gaya ng mga araw ng iyong paglabas sa lupain ng Egipto ay aking pagpapakitaan sila ng mga kagilagilalas na bagay.

16 Makikita ng mga bansa, at mangapapahiya sa buo nilang kapangyarihan; kanilang ilalagay ang kanilang kamay sa kanilang bibig, ang kanilang mga pakinig ay mabibingi.

17 Sila'y magsisihimod sa alabok na parang ahas; parang nagsisiusad na hayop sa lupa sila'y magsisilabas na nagsisipanginig mula sa kanilang mga kulungan; sila'y magsisilapit na may takot sa Panginoon nating Dios, at mangatatakot dahil sa iyo.

18 Sino ang Dios na gaya mo, na nagpapatawad ng kasamaan, at pinalalagpas ang pagsalansang ng nalabi sa kaniyang mana? hindi niya pinipigil ang kaniyang galit ng magpakailan man, sapagka't siya'y nalulugod sa kagandahang-loob.

19 Siya'y muling magtataglay ng habag sa atin; kaniyang yayapakan ang ating kasamaan: at kaniyang ihahagis ang lahat nilang kasalanan sa mga kalaliman ng dagat.

20 Iyong isasagawa ang katotohanan kay Jacob, at ang kagandahang-loob kay Abraham, na iyong isinumpa sa aming mga magulang mula sa mga araw nang una.

In this last chapter of his book, in Micah 7:1-4, the prophet is discouraged about the evil that he sees in the land. The cluster (of grapes ) that he doesn’t see means that there is no love of the neighbor there. 1 The firstfruits that his soul longs for mean the upright kind of ordinary life 2 , which he can’t find: “the faithful man has perished from the earth”.

The net in verse 2 is the twisting of truth into falsity and the other way round, to deceive. Those who should be faithful leaders are diving into evil, and take bribes. All this hellish behavior will in the end lead to punishment.

In Micah 7:5, 6, these two verses are really not talking about other people; friends, companions, wives or husbands, or in-laws. When Micah refers to a “man’s household” he is talking about the evil loves that live in our own will. That’s where the evil is that we must fear and stamp out. 3

Micah 7:7-9 shows the path away from evil. God will hear us. But we must see that we have sinned and admit it to the Lord 4 , and ask for His help in stopping. He will be a light in our “darkness”. Micah admits his own weakness and admits that only the Lord’s power can "bring him forth to the light".

In Micah 7:10, "She" represents the affection for doing some kind of evil. Everyone has some sort of affections that way. 5 Those affections will try to persuade us that Jehovah can’t help, but if we persist in calling on Him for help, those affections can be shamed and eventually be trampled into the mud.

Micah 7:11, 12 says that when the Lord comes to found a new church, it will spread. Assyria here means reasoning, and Egypt means natural science. Cities mean doctrine from truth, and mountains mean goods, so the picture is of the spreading of both truth and good from one boundary to the other, all the way from natural truths to reasoning about spiritual things -- our whole mind. 6

But the old church will be desolate, according to Micah 7:13.

In Micah 7:14,15, to pasture means to feed the flock as a shepherd 7 , or to teach the truths that the Lord provides. The forest means the church as to truth, and Carmel means the church as to good. 8 Bashan and Gilead mean the same ideas from the stories of the Word, the literal sense.

Nations, in Micah 7:16, 17, mean people outside who don’t know, and don’t want to hear. They will stay focused on physical and sensory things, and will be in dread about knowledge of God.

Then, in Micah 7:18-20, Micah ends on a positive note: God will continue to have compassion on everyone and try to bring them to walk in His ways. Although we are all in freedom to be evil, He will never stop trying to lead us out of it if we will listen.
