    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:10

    que edificáis a Sion con sangre, y a Jerusalén con injusticia;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Micah 3:10

    Verse 10. They build up
    Zion with blood] They might cry out loudly against that butchery practiced by Pekah, king of Israel, and Pul coadjutor of Rezie, against the Jews. See on chap. ii. 9. But these were by no means clear themselves; for if they strengthened the city, or decorated the temple, it was by the produce of their exactions and oppressions of the people.

    I do not know a text more applicable than this to slave- dealers; or to any who have made their fortunes by such wrongs as affect the life of man; especially the former, who by the gains of this diabolic traffic have built houses &c.; for, following up the prophet's metaphor, the timbers, &c., are the bones of the hapless Africans; and the mortar, the blood of the defenceless progeny of Ham. What an account must all those who have any hand in or profit from this detestable, degrading, and inhuman traffic, give to Him who will shortly judge the quick and dead!


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity .] Or, “O thou that buildest up” f127 , etc. or “everyone of them that buildeth up” f128 , etc. for the word is in the singular number; but, be fire words rendered either of these ways, they respect the heads and princes of the people; who either repaired the temple on Zion, or ornamented the king’s palace, or built themselves fine stately houses in Jerusalem, or large streets there, by money they took of murderers to save them, as Kimchi; or by money got by rapine and oppression, by spoiling the poor of their goods and their livelihood, for them and their families, which was all one as shedding innocent blood; and by money obtained by bribes, for the perversion of justice, and such like illegal proceedings, truly called iniquity.

    The Targum is, “who build their houses in Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with deceits.”


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-12 - Zion's walls owe no thanks to those that build them up with blood an iniquity. The sin of man works not the righteousness of God. Even when men do that which in itself is good, but do it for filthy lucre, it becomes abomination both to God and man. Faith rests in the Lord as the soul's foundation: presumption only leans upon the Lord as a prop, an would use him to serve a turn. If men's having the Lord among them wil not keep them from doing evil, it never can secure them from sufferin evil for so doing. See the doom of wicked Jacob; Therefore shall Zio for your sake be ploughed as a field. This was exactly fulfilled at the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans, and is so at this day. I sacred places are polluted by sin, they will be wasted and ruined by the judgments of God __________________________________________________________________
