RF MIC 7:1 Mikah bewails his Solitude in the Midst of the Wicked.
Woe to me! for the harvest is done,
The vintage all gone, there are no grapes to eat!
Nor ripe fig,—the desire of my life!
RF MIC 7:2 The gentle have wasted from earth!
And the upright has ceased among men!
And they are all plotting to murder,—
Each hunts for his friend with a net!
RF MIC 7:3 Both hands are stretched out after crime,—
The Prince and the Judge ask a bribe;
And the great tells the wish of his life,—
And thus are they woven together!—
RF MIC 7:4 The best is a thorn and the straightest a briar!
Look out for the day when your punishment comes,—
Even now you are deeply perplexed!
RF MIC 7:5 Trust not to a Friend! Rely not on a guide!
From the wife of your breast shut the doors of your mouth!
RF MIC 7:6 For the son will dishonor his father,
From her mother the daughter rebels,
And the bride from her mother-in-law,
And the foes of a man are the men of his house!
RF MIC 7:7 For myself I will watch for the LORD,—
I will wait for my Salvation's GOD,—
For my GOD will still listen to me.
RF MIC 7:8 So let not my foeman rejoice,
For if I fall down I shall rise,
For my darkness the LORD turns to light.
RF MIC 7:9 I will fear the correction of GOD,
Because I have sinned against Him,
Until He examines my plea,
And does justice and brings me the light,—
I will await, till I feel He acquits,—
RF MIC 7:10 My opponents will see, and be covered with shame,—
Those who taunt me with, "Where is JEHOVAH, your GOD?"
The Restoration of Israel Promised.
I see her now as she is,—
Trodden down like the dirt of the streets!
RF MIC 7:11 But a day comes to rebuild your walls,—
On the day the decree is revoked!
RF MIC 7:12 To you they will come on that day,
From the district of Ashur and cities of Mitzer;
From the Border of Mitzer as far as the River;
And from Sea to the Sea, and from Mountain to Hill!
RF MIC 7:13 Though the land has been wasted of people,
The result of their crimes! '
RF MIC 7:14 The Prophets prayer and the Lord's Reply.
"Guide Your race by Your staff, the flock You possess,
Who lie lost in the forest of Carmel,
Who in olden times pastured in Gilad and Bashan!"
"I will show to you wonderful things,
As when I bought from the country of Mitzer!—
RF MIC 7:16 The Heathen shall see them and blush!
All their Heroes lay hand on their mouth!
And their ears shall be strained.
RF MIC 7:17 They shall lick up the dust like a snake!
Like earth worms crawl out from their holes,
In dread of the LIVING, your GOD,—
And in terror of You!"
"What GOD would forgive sin like You?
Pardon faults that have broke His estate,
Not retaining His anger for ever;—
For He feels it delight to be kind!"
RF MIC 7:19 He returns and has mercy on us,
Who will our frailties subdue,
And cast all our faults to the depths of the sea!
RF MIC 7:20 Giving truly to Jacob the promise to Abraham,
As He swore to our fathers, in days long ago!
1 Note.—Ch. 7, v. 12 "The River "—the Euphrates.


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
