1 Vậy nên ta nói rằng: Các trưởng của Gia-cốp và các ngươi là kẻ cai trị nhà Y-sơ-ra-ên, hãy nghe! Há chẳng phải các ngươi nên biết sự công nghĩa sao?

2 Vả, các ngươi ghét điều lành, ưa điều dữ; lột da của những kẻ nầy và róc thịt trên xương chúng nó.

3 Các ngươi ăn thịt của dân ta, lột lấy da và bẻ lấy xương, xé ra từng mảnh như sắm cho nồi, như là thịt ở trong chảo.

4 Bấy giờ chúng nó sẽ kêu cùng Ðức Giê-hô-va, nhưng Ngài không trả lời. Phải, Ngài sẽ giấu mặt khỏi chúng nó trong lúc ấy theo như những việc dữ chúng ta làm.

5 Nầy là lời Ðức Giê-hô-va phán ra về các kẻ tiên tri làm lầm lạc dân ta, là kẻ cắn bằng răng mình, và rao rằng: Bình an! và nếu ai không cho vật gì vào miệng chúng nó thì sửa soạn sự chiến tranh nghịch cùng nó.

6 Vì cớ đó, ban đêm sẽ ở trên các ngươi mà không có sự hiện thấy; các ngươi sẽ ở trong tối tăm mà không nói tiên tri; mặt trời sẽ lặn trên các tiên tri đó, và ban ngày sẽ tối đi chung quanh họ.

7 Những kẻ tiên kiến sẽ phải xấu hổ, và những kẻ tiên tri sẽ bị nhuốc nha. Hết thảy đều che môi lại, vì chẳng được lời đáp nào của Ðức Chúa Trời.

8 Nhưng ta, ta được đầy dẫy sức mạnh, sự xét đoán, và lòng bạo dạn, bởi Thần của Ðức Giê-hô-va, để rao ra cho Gia-cốp về sự phạm pháp nó, cho Y-sơ-ra-ên về tội lỗi nó.

9 Hỡi các trưởng của nhà Gia-cốp, và các ngươi là kẻ cai trị nhà Y-sơ-ra-ên, hãy nghe điều nầy, các ngươi gớm sự chánh trực, và làm bại hoại sự bằng phẳng.

10 Các người lấy huyết xây thành Si-ôn, và lấy sự gian ác xây thành Giê-ru-sa-lem.

11 Các quan trưởng xét đoán vì của hối lộ, các thầy tế lễ dạy dỗ vì tiền công, còn các kẻ tiên tri nói tiên tribạc; rồi chúng nó nương cậy Ðức Giê-hô-va mà rằng: Ðức Giê-hô-va há chẳng ở giữa chúng ta sao? Tai vạ sẽ chẳng đến trên chúng ta!

12 Vậy nên, vì cớ các ngươi, Si-ôn sẽ bị cày như ruộng; Giê-ru-sa-lem sẽ trở nên đống đổ nát, và núi của nhà sẽ trở nên như nơi cao trong rừng!



Exploring the Meaning of Mi-chê 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.
