Yet will I bring an heir unto you, O inhabitant of Mareshah: he shall come unto Adullam, the glory of Israel.
All Commentaries on Micah 1:15 Go To Micah 1
George Leo Haydock
Heir. Maresa (which was the name of a city of Juda) signifies inheritance: but here God by his prophet tells the Jews, that he will bring them an heir to take possession of their inheritance: and that the glory of Israel shall be obliged to give place, and to retire even to Odollam, a city in the extremity of their dominions. And therefore he exhorts them to penance in the following verse. (Challoner)
Maresa shall fall a prey to the king of Assyria. Micheas was a native of this town, and he ironically addresses his countrymen. (Calmet)
Glory. Thus he denotes "the misery "of Israel, which shall be extended to the last town in Juda. (Worthington)
Hebrew means also "burden. "Odolla was taken by Sennacherib, (Calmet) with the other towns around Jerusalem. (Haydock)
