1 Ke kaloku, ekupheleni kwemihla, intaba yendlu kaYehova iya kuzinza encotsheni yazo iintaba, yona iziphakamele iinduli, zibe ngumsinga izizwe ukuya kuyo.

2 Ziya kubamba iintlanga ezininzi, zithi, Hambani, sinyuke siye entabeni kaYehova, endlwini yoThixo kaYakobi, ukuze asiyalele iindlela zakhe, sihambe ngomendo wakhe; kuba uya kuphuma eZiyon umyalelo, nelizwi likaYehova eYerusalem.

3 Uya kugweba phakathi kwezizwe ezininzi, ohlwaye iintlanga ezinamandla, ade ase kude; ziwakhande, amakrele azo abe ngamakhuba, nezikhali zazo zibe zizitshetshe zokuthena imidiliya. Uhlanga aluyi kuphakamisela kuhlanga ikrele lalo, bangabi safunda ukulwa.

4 Baya kuhlala elowo phantsi komdiliya wakhe, naphantsi komkhiwane wakhe, kungabikho uboyikisayo; kuba umlomo kaYehova wemikhosi uthethile.

5 Kuba zonke izizwe zihamba, sona eso egameni lothixo waso; thina ke sihamba egameni likaYehova uThixo wethu, ngonaphakade kanaphakade.

6 Ngayo loo mini, utsho uYehova, ndiya kubahlanganisa abaqhwalelayo, ndibabuthe abagxothiweyo, nabendibaphethe kakubi;

7 ndibenze abaqhwalelayo babe ngamasalela, nabakhweleliselwa kude babe luhlanga olunamandla, uYehova abe ngukumkani kubo entabeni yeZiyon, kususela ngoku kude kuse ephakadeni.

8 Wena ke, nqaba ende yomhlambi, nduli yentombi enguZiyon, luya kuza lufikelele kuwe olwangaphambili ulawulo, lokuba bubukumkani bentombi enguYerusalem.

9 Ngokunje ukhalelani na ngoku kukhala? Akakho na ukumkani kuwe? Umcebisi wakho ubhubhile na, ukuba ubanjwe nje kukuzibhijabhija, njengozalayo?

10 Zibhijabhije, ubhanyalaze njengozalayo, ntombi inguZiyon; ngokuba ngoku uya kuphuma phakathi komzi, uhlale endle, ude uye eBhabheli; uya kuhlangulwa khona; uya kukukhulula khona uYehova esandleni seentshaba zakho.

11 Ngoku ke kuhlanganisene iintlanga ezininzi ngawe, zisithi, Mayihlanjelwe, ayibone amehlo ethu iZiyon.

12 Ke zona ezi azizazi iingcinga zikaYehova, aziliqondi icebo lakhe; kuba uzibuthile njengezithungu zesanda.

13 Suk’ ume, ubhule, ntombi inguZiyon, kuba uphondo lwakho ndilwenza isinyithi, neempuphu zakho ndizenza ubhedu. Uya kucola iintlanga ezininzi, uyisingele phantsi kuYehova inzuzo yazo embi, ubusingele phantsi kwiNkosi yehlabathi lonke ubutyebi bazo.

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.
