SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:3 Pero los dejará hasta el tiempo que dé a luz la que está de parto; y el resto de sus hermanos se tornará con los hijos de Israel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Micah 5:3 Verse 3. Therefore wilt he give them up] Jesus Christ shall give up the disobedient and rebellious Jews into the hands of all the nations of the earth, till she who travaileth hath brought forth; that is, till the Christian Church, represented Rev. xii. 1, under the notion of a woman in travail, shall have had the fullness of the Gentiles brought in. Then the remnant of his brethren shall return; the Jews also shall be converted unto the Lord; and thus all Israel shall be saved according to Rom. xi. 26.
Unto the children of Israel.] Taking in both families, that of Judah and that of Israel. The remnant of the ten tribes, wherever they are, shall be brought in under Christ; and though now lost among the nations of the earth, they will then not only be brought in among the fullness of the Gentiles, but most probably be distinguished as Jews.
On this verse Abp. Newcome says, "The sense is, God will not fully vindicate and exalt his people, till the virgin mother shall have brought forth her Son; and till Judah and Israel, and all the true sons of Abraham among their brethren the Gentiles, be converted to Christianity.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 3. Therefore will he give them up , etc.] Or “notwithstanding”, as this particle signifies; (see Hosea 2:14); though all this shall be, yet, previous to the birth of this person, the Lord would give up the Jews to trouble and distress, and into the hands of their enemies; and the time from this prophet to the birth of Christ was a time for the most part of great trouble to, the Jews; not only was their country invaded and their city besieged by Sennacherib in Hezekiah’s time, but, some years after that, they were wholly carried captive into Babylon: and when they returned it was troublesome times with them; they met with many enemies that disturbed them while they were rebuilding the city and temple; and after that they endured much tribulation, in the times of Antiochus Epiphanes, or of the Maccabees; nor were they long in any quiet, nor in any settled state, unto the coming of the Messiah. Or else this is to be understood of what should be after his coming; for though Jesus was born at Bethlehem, according to this plain prophecy, and had all the characters of the Messiah in him, yet the Jews rejected him, and would not have him to reign over them: wherefore he, the Messiah, as Japhet interprets it, gave them up to judicial blindness and hardness of heart, and into the hands of their enemies the Romans; by whom they were destroyed or carried captive, and dispersed among the nations; in which condition they still remain, and will, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled; so long will Jerusalem be trodden under foot, or the Jews be given up to their will, according to ( Luke 21:24); or, as here expressed, until the time [that] she which travaileth hath brought forth : that is, according to the first sense until the Virgin Mary travailed in birth with the Messiah, and brought forth him her firstborn, ( Matthew 1:25); or according to the latter, until Zion, or, the church of God, travailed in prayer, in the ministry of the word, and brought forth many children to Christ, both among Jews and Gentiles; and the sense is, that the Jews shall be given up to distress and trouble, till the time of their conversion, (see Isaiah 66:7,8); The Jews have a tradition in their Talmud, that “the son of David would not come until the kingdom spreads itself over the whole world for nine months; as it is said, “therefore will he give them up until the time that she that travaileth hath brought” forth; which is the time of a woman’s going with child.”
This both Jarchi and Kimchi take notice of. In one place it is called the kingdom of Aram or Syria; and in another a blank is left for Edom, that is, Rome; for by the kingdom is meant the Roman empire, and which did extend all over the world before the coming of the Messiah Jesus, as appears from ( Luke 2:1); as well as from all profane history; then the remnant of his brethren shall return to the children of Israel ; that is, the brethren of the Messiah, as Kimchi and Abendana interpret it; who should return with the children of Israel, as both they and Jarchi explain it; to which the Targum agrees. Kimchi’s note is, ““the remnant of his brethren”; they are the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, which remained when the ten tribes were carried captive; and the surnames, his brethren, relate to the Messiah.”
So Abendana f161 , “and “the remnant his brethren”; they are the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, they shall return with the children of Israel, who are the ten tribes; as if he should say, these and these shall return to their land, and King Messiah shall reign over them; and the surnames, his brethren, respect the Messiah.”
And to the same purpose R. Isaac f162 , “the remnant of the brethren of the Messiah, who are the children of Judah and Benjamin, that are left and remain of the calamities and persecutions of the captivities, shall return to their own land, together with the children of Israel, who are the ten tribes.”
Meaning either the remnant, according to the election of grace, among the Gentiles; who with those among the Jews should be converted to Christ in the first times of the Gospel, those immediately following the birth of Christ; the Gospel being preached both to the Jews and Gentiles, and some of both were called and converted, and whom Christ owned as his brethren, and were not ashamed of; (see Matthew 12:49,50) ( Hebrews 2:11); or the Lord’s chosen people, and brethren of Christ, those of, he two tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and those of the ten tribes of Israel; who shall join and coalesce together in seeking the Messiah, embracing and professing him, and appointing him the one Head over them, when they will turn to the Lord, and all Israel shall be saved; (see Jeremiah 50:4 Hosea 1:11 Romans 11:25,26).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-6 - Having showed how low the house of David would be brought, a predictio of the Messiah and his kingdom is added to encourage the faith of God' people. His existence from eternity as God, and his office as Mediator are noticed. Here is foretold that Bethlehem should be his birthplace Hence it was universally known among the Jews, Mt 2:5. Christ' government shall be very happy for his subjects; they shall be safe an easy. Under the shadow of protection from the Assyrians, is a promis of protection to the gospel church and all believers, from the design and attempts of the powers of darkness. Christ is our Peace as Priest, making atonement for sin, and reconciling us to God; and he is our Peace as a King, conquering our enemies: hence our souls may dwel at ease in him. Christ will find instruments to protect and deliver Those that threaten ruin to the church of God, soon bring ruin of themselves. This may include the past powerful effects of the preache gospel, its future spread, and the ruin of all antichristian powers This is, perhaps, the most important single prophecy in the Ol Testament: it respects the personal character of the Messiah, and the discoveries of himself to the world. It distinguishes his human birt from his existing from eternity; it foretells the rejection of the Israelites and Jews for a season, their final restoration, and the universal peace to prevail through the whole earth in the latter days In the mean time let us trust our Shepherd's care and power. If he permits the assault of our enemies, he will supply helpers an assistance for us.
