Shall tread in our palaces - Which Sennacherib did in all the cities of Judah, except Jerusalem. We - Hezekiah, and with him the prophets and people, shall prevail with God to send deliverance. Seven shepherds - A certain number put for an uncertain.


Discussion for Micah 5

  • kind of complicating
  • Rev. Autrey
    (Micah 5:2)Again, that Micah says that Jesus is from the distant past is a clue to his identity as God. His existence is similiar to how we are aware of our own personalities. That is, if I am aware of myself as a certain person, then that certain person or personality is me, completely and fully. This is how Jesus is completely and fully God. This is the most important revelation of Jesus' identity God will ever give us!
  • Muhindo joel for verse 2
    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.
