7  Is the House of Yaakov condemned? Is Hashem‘s patience short? Is such His practice?” To be sure, My words are friendly To those who walk in rectitude;

Goats roaming the hillside of the Land of Israel.

2:7  To be sure, My words are friendly to those who walk in rectitude

Micha answers the false prophets who attempt to quiet his warnings. They claim that Hashem’s patience is forever, and that since Israel is God’s people, they will never come to harm. Micha explains that for God’s blessings to rest on the people, they must “walk in rectitude,” and not on the crooked path. If they do not heed this warning, He will punish them and exile them from the Land of Israel, which cannot tolerate evil behavior. In verse 12, however, Micha promises that once the people have been punished, they will be returned to the Land of Israel from all the places of their exile, and placed under God’s protection like a flock of sheep safe in its pen.

  • To walk upright ly is not just for Isreal. All who call themselves Christians must do the same. We claim Jewish roots but are not attached to the life giving tree. The WORD is to be followed with our hearts. We all need a change of heart. A new heart from HaShem. May the Loed forgive us as Christians for what we have done in His name to our Jewish brothers.
