Micah 6

Let's Go Over It One More Time

1 Hear what the LORD says: Rise, plead your case before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice. 2 Hear, you mountains, the controversy of the LORD, and you enduring foundations of the earth; for the LORD has a controversy with his people, and he will contend with Israel. 3 "O my people, what have I done to you? In what have I wearied you? Answer me! 4 For I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and redeemed you from the house of slavery; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam. 5 O my people, remember now what King Balak of Moab devised, what Balaam son of Beor answered him, and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal, that you may know the saving acts of the LORD." 6 "With what shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? 7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?" 8 He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Musings

Back to the court case God versus the People of Israel, we find God asking what it is they don't seem to remember about their covenant with Moses. Shittim and Gilgal represent the crossing of the Jordan at the end of the Exodus (last camp before the promised land and first camp after entering), thus the fulfilment of the promise to God's people. So what can be done to regain this relationship again now? Clearly no sacrifice, no matter how great, is sufficient. The answer is found in the most famous quote from Micah "what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" (A rhetorical question of course.)
