Bible Commentary for Micah 5:2

Wesley's Notes for Micah 5:2


5:2 Bethlehem - Bethlehem of Judah was called Ephratah, from the fruitfulness of the land where it stood: the word whence it is derived importing fruitfulness. Art thou little - If thou art the least in other respects in this thou art honoured above them all. Ruler - King and sovereign. In Israel - Amidst the Israel of God. Going forth - Whose generation, as he is the Son of God, equal with his father, is eternal.

    God's way of doing things is quite different from what human beings think, He chooses from whom he wills.God decided to get a saviour from a minority tribe and from a place not thought of and this was to be a ruler of israel.
