Micah 7

1 Vay halime benim! Yazın meyve toplandıktan
Ve bağbozumundan artakalan üzümler alındıktan sonra
Tek bir salkım bulamayan adam gibiyim.
Canım turfanda inciri nasıl da çekiyor!

2 Ülkede Tanrıya sadık kul kalmadı.
İnsanlar arasında dürüst kimse yok.
Herkes kan dökmek için pusuda.
Kardeş kardeşe tuzak kuruyor.

3 Kötülük yapmakta elleri ne becerikli!
Önderler armağan istiyor, yargıçlar rüşvet alıyor.
Güçlüler her istediklerini zorla yaptırıyor,
Düzen üstüne düzen kuruyorlar.

4 En iyileri çalı çırpıdan değersiz,
En dürüstleri dikenli çitten beterdir.
Ama peygamberlerinin uyardığı gibi,
Cezalandırılacakları gün geldi çattı.
Şaşkınlık içindeler şimdi.

5 İnanmayın komşunuza,
Dostunuza güvenmeyin.
Koynunuzda yatan karınızın yanında bile
Sıkı tutun ağzınızı.

6 Çünkü oğul babasına saygısızlık ediyor,
Kız annesine, gelin kaynanasına karşı geliyor.
İnsanın düşmanı kendi ev halkıdır.

7 Ama ben umutla RABbe bakıyor,
Kurtarıcım olan Tanrıyı bekliyorum.
Duyacak beni Tanrım.

8 Halime sevinme, ey düşmanım!
Düşsem de kalkarım.
Karanlıkta kalsam bile RAB bana ışık olur.

9 RABbe karşı günah işlediğim için,
Onun öfkesine dayanmalıyım.
Sonunda davamı savunup hakkımı alacak,
Beni ışığa çıkaracak, adaletini göreceğim.

10 Düşmanım da görecek ve utanç içinde kalacak.
O düşman ki,
‹‹Hani Tanrın RAB nerede?›› diye soruyordu bana.
Onun düşüşünü gözlerimle göreceğim.
Sokaktaki çamur gibi ayak altında çiğnenecek.

11 Ey Yeruşalim,
Surlarının onarılacağı,
Sınırlarının genişletileceği gün gelecek.

12 Halkımızdan olanlar o gün
Asurdan Mısıra,
Mısırdan Fırata kadar uzanan topraklardan,
Denizler arasında, dağlar arasında kalan topraklardan sana gelecekler.

13 Ama ülke, içinde yaşayanların yaptığı kötülükler yüzünden viraneye dönecek.

14 Ya RAB, mirasın olan
Ve Karmelin ortasındaki ormanda ayrı yaşayan sürünü, halkını
Değneğinle güt.
Geçmişte olduğu gibi,
Başanda ve Gilatta beslensinler. verimli topraklarda››.

15 Bizi Mısırdan çıkardığın günlerdeki gibi,
Harikalar yarat halkın için.

16 Uluslar bunu görünce
Yaptıkları bunca zorbalıktan utanacaklar.
Elleriyle ağızlarını kapayacak, kulaklarını tıkayacaklar.

17 Yılanlar gibi, sürüngenler gibi toprak yalayacak,
Titreyerek sığınaklarından çıkacaklar.
Ey Tanrımız RAB, dehşet içinde sana dönecek
Ve senden korkacaklar.

18 Senin gibi suçları silen,
Kendi halkından geride kalanların isyanlarını bağışlayan başka tanrı var mı?
Sonsuza dek öfkeli kalmazsın,
Çünkü sadık olmaktan hoşlanırsın.

19 Bize yine acıyacaksın,
Çiğneyeceksin suçlarımızı ayak altında.
Bütün günahlarımızı denizin dibine atacaksın.

20 Geçmişte atalarımıza ant içtiğin gibi,
Yakup'un ve İbrahim'in torunları olan bizlere de
Verdiğin sözü tutacak ve sadık kalacaksın.



Exploring the Meaning of Micah 7      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

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.
