SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:7 Â¶ Y será el remanente de Jacob en medio de muchos pueblos, como el rocío del SEÑOR, como las lluvias sobre la hierba, las cuales no esperaba ya varón, ni esperaban hijos de hombres.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Micah 5:7 Verse 7. The remnant of Jacob] From the reign of Darius Hystaspes (Ahasuerus, husband of Esther) the Jews were greatly favoured. Those who continued in Persia and Chaldea were greatly honoured under the protection of Mordecai and Esther. - Calmet. But others consider this as applying to the Maccabees.
As a dew from the Lord] Even during their captivity many of the Jews were the means of spreading the knowledge of the one true God; see Dan. ii. 47; iii. 29; iv. 34; vi. 26. This may be the dew from the Lord mentioned here. When the Messiah appeared, the Gospel was preached by them; and it shall again be propagated by their future glorious restoration, Rom. xi. 12, 25.
The grass, that tarrieth not for man] Which grass springs up without the attention and culture of man; yal leish, even the best and most skillful of men.
Nor waiteth for the sons of men.] µda ynbl libney adam, for the sons of Adam, the first transgressor. The dew and the showers descend on the earth and water it, in order to render it fruitful; and the grass springs up independently either of the worth or wickedness of man. All comes through God's bounty, who causes his sun to shine on the just and the unjust, and his rain to descend on the evil and the good.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people , etc.] The Jews, who will be converted in the latter day, the remnant of them according to the election of grace, as well as all true Israelites, whether Jews or Gentiles, the Lords chosen and peculiar people; who, though but a small number in comparison of others, and mean and contemptible in the eyes of men, are such as God has made a reserve of for himself; and these, though not of the world, yet are in the world, and will be in the several parts of it, but a distinct people from it, and of no account in it; nevertheless will be visible in it, and wonderfully preserved in the midst of it: and will be as a dew from the Lord ; both with respect to themselves, being like to dew for the generation of it, which is from above, from heaven, and of God, as their regeneration is; and which secretly and silently falls as the grace of God in regeneration does; and for the number of the drops of it, which are not to be reckoned; and so numerous are the people of God, at least they will be in the latter day, when Christ shall again have the dew of his youth; or such a number of converts, as will be like the drops of the morning dew; as also for the favour, grace, and blessings of God upon them, which are as the dew; and which he himself is as that unto them, so that they themselves are as dew from him, being indulged with his favour; which, as the dew is entirely free, very softening, cooling, and refreshing, as well as fructifying; and having the dews of his grace, or the blessings of it, falling upon them in plenty; (see Hosea 14:5,6); and with respect to others, among whom they are, and to whom they are as the dew, by their speech, their doctrine, the word ministered by then\, which distils like the dew, ( Deuteronomy 32:26); and by their good works, which are profitable unto men; and by their soft and gentle behaviour towards them; and by reason of the many outward blessings they enjoy through them, as Laban did for the sake of Jacob, and Potiphar on the account of Josiah: as the showers upon the grass ; which revive, refresh it, and cause it to grow and flourish; or they are like grass, on which the showers fall, and grow up as such in great numbers, and with great verdure and fruitfulness, ( Psalm 72:16); that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men ; which seems to be connected with the dew, though it agrees with both dew and rain, which stay not for mens desires or deserts, but descend according to the will of God: and as this regards the people of God, either with respect to themselves; it shows that as they are, as the dew, or as showers and clouds full of rain, either of grace or doctrine compared thereunto; they are not of themselves so, or of men, but of God; and that their dependence is not upon the creature, but upon the Lord for support and supply:, and with respect to others, to whom they are beneficial by their doctrine and works; that it is all from the Lord, and owing to his goodness, which makes them a blessing round about unasked and undeserved; (see Ezekiel 34:26). It may have respect to plenty of Gospel ministers, whose doctrine is as the dew; and which, being attended with the power and Spirit of God, waits not for anything in man, but operates at once secretly and powerfully.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-15 - The remnant of Israel, converted to Christ in the primitive times, wer among many nations as the drops of dew, and were made instruments in calling a large increase of spiritual worshippers. But to those wh neglected or opposed this salvation, they would, as lions, caus terror, their doctrine condemning them. The Lord also declares that he would cause not only the reformation of the Jews, but the purificatio of the Christian church. In like manner shall we be assured of victor in our personal conflicts, as we simply depend upon the Lord ou salvation, worship him, and serve him with diligence __________________________________________________________________
