1 Kaloku ngungelanani, ntombi yongungelwano; bayasingqinga, babetha ngentonga esidleleni nakumgwebi wakwaSirayeli.

2 Ke wena, Bhetelehem-efrata, umncinane kunokuba ubekho emawakeni akwaYuda, kuya kuphuma kuwe, eze ngenxa yam, oya kuba ngumlawuli kwaSirayeli, oziphumo zakhe zisusela kumandulo, zisusela kwimihla yasephakadeni.

3 Ngako oko uya kubanikela kude kube lixesha lokuzala kozalayo, ade abuye amasalela abazalwana bakhe, kunye noonyana bakaSirayeli;

4 uya kuma, aluse enamandla kaYehova, enobungangamsha begama likaYehova uThixo wakhe; bahlale; ngokuba ngoku uya kuba mkhulu, ese eziphelweni zehlabathi.

5 Woba luxolo lowo. Xa uAsiriya azileyo ezweni lakowethu, xa anyathelayo ezingxandeni zethu ezinde, siya kumisela abalusi abasixhenxe, neenkosi zabantu ezisibhozo, zimelane naye.

6 Baya kulalusa ilizwe laseAsiriya ngekrele, nelizwe lakwaNimrodi emasangweni alo; asihlangule kuma-Asiriya, xa azileyo ezweni lakowethu, xa anyathelayo emideni yethu.

7 Amasalela akwaYakobi aya kuba phakathi kwezizwe ezininzi, njengombethe ophuma kuYehova, njengamathontsi emvula ebutyanini; engathembele mntwini, engalindele koonyana babantu.

8 Amasalela akwaYakobi oba sezintlangeni, phakathi kwezizwe ezininzi, njengengonyama phakathi kweenyamakazi zehlathi; njengengonyama entsha phakathi kwemihlambi yeegusha, yona ithi, ingacanda kuzo, isuke inyhashe, iqwenge, kungabikho mhlanguli.

9 Masiphakame isandla sakho, sibe phezu kwababandezeli bakho, zinqunyulwe zonke iintshaba zakho.

10 Kothi ngaloo mini, utsho uYehova, ndiwanqumle amahashe akho, angabikho phakathi kwakho, ndizitshabalalise iinqwelo zakho zokulwa.

11 Ndoyinqumla imizi yelizwe lakowenu, ndizigungxule zonke iinqaba zakho;

12 ndibanqamle abakhafuli, bangabikho esandleni sakho; amatola angabikho kuwe.

13 Ndiya kuyinqumla imifanekiso yakho eqingqiweyo, nezimiso zakho zamatye, zingabikho phakathi kwakho; ungabi saqubuda kumsebenzi wezandla zakho.

14 Ndobanyothula ooAshera bakho, bangabikho phakathi kwakho; ndiyitshabalalise imizi yakho.

15 Ndiya kuphindezela ndinomsindo, ndishushu ezintlangeni ezingevayo.

In Micah 5:1, a troop means the good that comes from truth. But... what is a good that comes from truth? Here's a mundane example: you know that it's true that it's safer to buckle your seat belt, so you do it; it's a good action that comes from knowing a truth.

In this verse, a daughter means affection, so it's talking about an affection for doing such good actions. A siege against that would be bad ideas trying to get in, and to smite on the jaw with a rod means to destroy falsities. The prophecy in verse 2 has this in mind. This is what Jesus is being born to do, to lift the siege of false ideas.

In Micah 5:2, we find the familiar prophecy about where the Lord will be born.

Then, in Micah 5:3, 4, there's reference to the Lord gathering the people of His church and teaching them. The term used for the people of the church here is "brothers", as they all address the Lord as Father. The same is true of “the sons of Israel”. "She which travails" is a reference to the woman clothed with the sun spoken of in the book of Revelation.

In Micah 5:5, 6, Assyria means reasoning. Reasoning from the truths taught, as meant by the feeding in verse 4, can bring agreement and peace. But reasoning from the falsity that Assyria brings in must be destroyed. The seven shepherds and eight princely men means a total deliverance from their falsity. Seven means something holy, and eight means complete conjunction.

In Micah 5:7, some of the people left behind were good and had stayed apart from the idolatry of the Israelite kingdom. These remnants could come to the new church the Lord was establishing, where they could be saved. But the vast bulk of the people were led away to captivity not only to physical slavery, but - spiritually - to reasoning from falsity, which becomes a form of slavery, too.

Micah 5:8. The lion and young lion, trampling and tearing are the evil and falsity of the kingdom of Judah, and there will be no support there for the church the Lord will establish.

Micah 5:9. The Lord’s church will win.

Micah 5:10-15. The Lord will establish a new church when He "bows the heavens and comes down" but He will not destroy the physical things that are listed here. It will really be a desrtuction caused by people who operate from selfishness, greed, ignorance, indifference, and love of power.

Horses mean someone’s understanding, and chariots their own false doctrine. Cities mean more general doctrine, and fortresses symbolize their strong opinions. Graven images are idols, i.e. false gods.

The Lord’s anger and vengeance are only appearances in people's imaginations. It's the way they feel when they want what is evil. When evil loves conflict, everyone is going to get angry with everyone else. The Lord would greet them with love if only they would mend their ways.
