Micah 7

Chapter 7

7:5  Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.


(See Scofield "Psalms 2:12") .

7:7  Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.


Micah 7:7-20 is, primarily, the confession and intercession of the prophet, who identifies himself with Israel. Cf. Daniel 9:3-19 . Intercession was a test of the prophetic office ; Jeremiah 27:18 ; Genesis 20:7 But Micah's prayer voices also the heart exercise of the remnant in the last days. Such is prophecy, an intermingling of the near and the far. (Cf) ; Psalms 22:1 ; Matthew 27:46 .

7:18  Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.


(See Scofield "Jeremiah 15:21")
