Wesley's Notes for Micah 1:13


1:13 Lachish - A strong fortress on the confines of Judah. Bind the chariot - To fly from the sword of the enemy. She - Lachish, which being the nearest to idolatrous Israel, took the infection of them, and conveyed it to Jerusalem. The transgressions - Not only the idolatry, but other sins also. Of Israel - Of the ten tribes.


Discussion for Micah 1

    Verse 4 shows the immense amount of power that Jehovah God has. Imagine something as solid and stable as a mountain melting like candle wax because of the intensity of God's burning anger.

    "For the transgression of Jacob is all this, and for the sins of the house of Israel." If it be so with the Chosen Nation and the House that is called by the LORD's Name; shall it not be the same with those who have been grafted in, when they do the same things? In the world of the beginning it was the apostasy and sin of the "sons of God" that CAUSED the whole world to be filled with corruption!
  • A disciple
    "..I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the foundations thereof: and all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate.." In turning away from all hearing of the Spirit of truth and refusing instruction shall the foundations be discovered and overthrown.
