SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:12 Porque la moradora de Marot tuvo dolor por el bien; por cuanto el mal descendió del SEÑOR hasta la puerta de Jerusalén.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Micah 1:12 Verse 12. The inhabitant of Maroth] There was a city of a similar name in the tribe of Judah, Josh. xv. 59.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. For the inhabitant of Maroth waited carefully for good , etc.] Or, “though [they] waited for good” f66 ; expected to have it, yet the reverse befell them: or “verily [they were] grieved for good” f67 ; for the good things they had lost, or were likely to lose; and which they had no more hope of, when they saw Jerusalem in distress. Grotius thinks, by transposition of letters, Ramoth is intended by Maroth, or the many Ramahs which were in Judah and Benjamin; but Hillerus is of opinion that Jarmuth is meant, a city of Judah, ( Joshua 15:35); the word Maroth signifies “bitterness”; (see Ruth 1:20); and, according to others, “rough places”; and may design the inhabitants of such places that were in great bitterness and trouble because of the invasion of the enemy, who before that had promised themselves good things, and lived in the expectation of them: but evil came down from the Lord unto the gate of Jerusalem ; meaning the Assyrian army under Sennacherib, which came into the land of Judea by the order, direction, and providence of God, like an overflowing flood; which spread itself over the land, and reached to the very gates of Jerusalem, which was besieged by it, and threatened with destruction: or “because evil came down”, etc. that is, “because” of that, the inhabitants of Maroth grieved, or were in pain, as a woman in travail.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-16 - The prophet laments that Israel's case is desperate; but declare it no in Gath. Gratify not those that make merry with the sins or with the sorrows of God's Israel. Roll thyself in the dust, as mourners used to do; let every house in Jerusalem become a house of Aphrah, "a house of dust." When God makes the house dust it becomes us to humble ourselve to the dust under his mighty hand. Many places should share thi mourning. The names have meanings which pointed out the miseries comin upon them; thereby to awaken the people to a holy fear of Divine wrath All refuges but Christ, must be refuges of lies to those who trust in them; other heirs will succeed to every inheritance but that of heaven and all glory will be turned into shame, except that honour whic cometh from God only. Sinners may now disregard their neighbours sufferings, yet their turn to be punished will some come __________________________________________________________________
