Search The Scriptures —Study 5 — Micah 7:7-20

Study 5 From The Book of Micah is: Micah 7:7-20

WITH THIS WE END THE BOOK OF MICAH- NEXT STUDY IS ON 1 TIMOTHY

1.    7:7-20. The penitent city speaks in verses 7-10, and the prophet responds to them (11-13), and to God on their behalf (14-20). In what respects does the sinful city take the right course in chapter 7? On what promises does she rest her case (verses 7-9), and what promise does she receive (verse 11, 12, 15)?
2.    The end of the disobedient nations is appalling (7:10, 13, 16, 17; cf. 5:9, 15).  Strict justice is the principle of God’s judgement (cf. Rev. 16:5-7). How was Micah’s vision of a forgiving God (7:18-20) glorious yet restricted? How does the New Testament have a broader insight into this same forgiving God? Cf. Jn. 3:16; 2 Pet. 3:9.
Note. 7:11. ‘In that day’: cf. 4:1, 6; 5:10. For the promise of the verse, cf. Zc. 2:1-5 and IS. 26:15 (also ‘in that day…’, Is. 26:1).
