1 Xảy ra trong những ngày sau rốt, núi của nhà Ðức Giê-hô-va sẽ lập lên trên chót các núi, và sẽ được nhắc cao lên hơn các đồi. Các dân sẽ chảy về đó;

2 nhiều nước sẽ đi đến đó, mà rằng: Hãy đến, chúng ta hãy lên núi của Ðức Giê-hô-va, nơi nhà của Ðức Chúa Trời Gia-cốp! Ngài sẽ dạy chúng ta về đường lối Ngài, và chúng ta sẽ đi trong các nẻo Ngài. Vì luật pháp sẽ ra từ Si-ôn, lời của Ðức Giê-hô-va từ Giê-ru-sa-lem.

3 Ngài sẽ làm ra sự phán xét giữa nhiều dân, đoán định các nước mạnh nơi phương xa; và họ sẽ lấy gươm rèn lưỡi cày, lấy giáo rèn lưỡi liềm; nước nầy chẳng giá gươm lên nghịch cùng nước khác, và cùng không tập sự chiến tranh nữa.

4 Ai nấy sẽ ngồi dưới cây nho mình và dưới cây vả mình, không ai làm cho lo sợ; vì miệng Ðức Giê-hô-va vạn quân đã phán.

5 Mọi dân tộc ai nấy bước theo danh của thần mình; và chúng ta sẽ bước theo danh Giê-hô-va Ðức Chúa Trời chúng ta đời đời vô cùng!

6 Ðức Giê-hô-va phán: Trong ngày đó, ta sẽ nhóm kẻ què lại, và thâu kẻ đã bị đuổi, kẻ mà ta đã làm cho buồn rầu.

7 ồi ta sẽ đặt kẻ què làm dân sót, và kẻ bị bỏ làm nước mạnh: Ðức Giê-hô-va sẽ trị vì trên chúng nó trong núi Si-ôn, từ bây giờ đến đời đời.

8 Còn ngươi, là tháp của bầy, đồi của con gái Si-ôn, quyền thế cũ của ngươi, tức là nước của con gái Giê-ru-sa-lem, sẽ đến cùng ngươi.

9 Nhưng bây giờ làm sao ngươi trổi tiếng kỳ lạ như vầy? Giữa ngươi há không có vua sao? Hay là mưu sĩ ngươi đã chết, nên ngươi bị quặn thắt như đờn bà sanh đẻ?

10 Hỡi con gái Si-ôn, hãy đau đớn khó nhọc để đẻ ra như đờn bà đẻ! Vì ngươi sẽ đi ra khỏi thành và ở trong đồng ruộng, và ngươi sẽ đến Ba-by-lôn. Nhưng ở đó, ngươi sẽ được giải cứu; ấy là tại đó mà Ðức Giê-hô-va sẽ chuộc ngươi ra khỏi tay kẻ thù nghịch ngươi.

11 Bây giờ có nhiều nước nhóm lại nghịch cùng ngươi, nói rằng: Nguyền cho nó bị uế tục, và nguyền cho con mắt chúng ta xem thấy sự ước ao mình xảy đến trên Si-ôn!

12 Song chúng nó không biết ý tưởng Ðức Giê-hô-va, không hiểu mưu của Ngài; vì Ngài đã nhóm chúng nó lại như những bó lúa đến nơi sân đạp lúa.

13 Vậy, hỡi con gái Si-ôn, hãy chổi dậy, khá giày đạp! Vì ta sẽ làm cho sừng ngươi nên sắt, vó ngươi nên đồng; ngươi sẽ nghiền nát nhiều dân, và ta sẽ dâng lợi của chúng nó cho Ðức Giê-hô-va, của cải chúng nó cho Chúa trên khắp đất.

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.
