Micah 1:11-13

Micah 1:11-13

KJV 11 Pass ye away, thou inhabitant of Saphir, having thy shame naked: the inhabitant of Zaanan came not forth in the mourning of Bethezel; he shall receive of you his standing. 12 For the inhabitant of Maroth waited carefully for good: but evil came down from the LORD unto the gate of Jerusalem. 13 O thou inhabitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift beast: she is the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee.

JuliaSmith 11 Pass away for you, thou fair one inhabiting the nakedness of shame: she inhabiting the place of flocks shall not go forth to the wailing of the house of firm root; he shall take from you his standing. 12 For she dwelling in bitterness was anxious for good: but evil came down from Jehovah to the gate of Jerusalem. 13 Make fast the chariot to the steed, thou inhabitress of the smitten: she the beginning of sin to the daughter of Zion: for in thee were found the transgressions of Israel.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

11 Nakedness is seen as shame and humiliation. They were no longer going to be protected. God’s protection is something we need and we need Him to cloth us with His righteousness but because they were going there own way they had lost favor with the Lord. We don’t want this to happen to us.

12 We should serve the Lord waiting for Him to use us doing more good, trusting that He brings good out of everything we do and go thru for Him.

13 This is where it started; those who mislead groups away from the Lord will face more of judgment and have to answer for this.
