1 Ndathi, Khanive, zintloko zakwaYakobi, nani baphathi bendlu kaSirayeli; asikokwenu na ukukwazi okusesikweni?

2 nina, bathiyi bokulungileyo, bathandi bokubi; nina bahlinzi bolusu lwabantu, nenyama yabo emathanjeni abo;

3 nina, bayidlileyo inyama yabantu bam; balobula ulusu iwabo; bawaphula amathambo abo; bawaxhaxha ngathi ngawembiza, ngathi yinyama kungxawu.

4 Baya kwandula bakhale kuYehova, angabaphenduli: asuke abusithelise ubuso bakhe kubo ngelo xesha, njengoko bazenze zambi iintlondi zabo.

5 Utsho uYehova ngokusingisele kubaprofeti ababandwendwisayo abantu bakowethu; abathi, xa banokuhlafunwayo, baze bamemeze uxolo: bathi, osukuba engafaki nto emlonyeni wabo, bamngcwalisele imfazwe, ukuthi:

6 Ngako oko niya kuba nobusuku, iphuthe imibono; nibe nobumnyama, kuphuthe ukuvumisa; litshone ilanga kubaprofeti, ibe mnyama imini kubo.

7 Ziya kudana iimboni, babe neentloni abavumisi, bazigqubuthele iindevu bonke bephela; ngokuba kungekho mpendulo kaThixo.

8 Ke mna ndizele ngamandla ngomoya kaYehova, ndizele kokusesikweni nobugora, ukuze ndimxelele uYakobi ukreqo lwakhe, uSirayeli isono sakhe.

9 Khanive oku, nina zintloko zendlu kaYakobi, nani baphathi bendlu kaSirayeli, abakwenza amasikizi okusesikweni, bakujikajike konke okuthe tye;

10 abayakha iZiyon ngamagazi, neYerusalem ngobugqwetha.

11 Iintloko zayo zigweba ngenxa yesicengo, nababingeleli bayo bayayala ngenxa yomvuzo, nabaprofeti bayo bavumisa ngenxa yemali; baze bayame ngoYehova, besithi, UYehova akaphakathi kwethu, yini na? asiyi kuzelwa bubi.

12 Ngako oko, ngenxa yenu iya kulinywa iZiyon ibe yintsimi, iYerusalem ibe yimiwewe, intaba yayo indlu ibe yimimango yehlathi.



Exploring the Meaning of UMika 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.
