    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:12

    Con lo cual sus ricos se llenaron de rapiņa, y sus moradores hablaron mentira, y su lengua engaņosa en su boca.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Micah 6:12

    Verse 12. For the
    rich men thereof are full of violence] This shows that they did not love mercy.

    The inhabitants thereof have spoken lies] This shows that they did not humble themselves to walk with God.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. For the rich men thereof are full of violence , etc.] That is, the rich men of the city, to whom the voice of the Lord cried, ( Micah 6:9).

    Jerusalem or Samaria, or any or all the cities of Israel and Judah; the rich men of these cities, who had enough of the world, and were under no temptation to do an ill thing, to get money; and yet their hands and their houses, and their treasuries, as the Targum, were full of goods gotten by violent measures, by the oppression of the poor and needy: and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies ; the rest of the inhabitants, who were not so rich as others, and who had it not in the power of their hands to oppress as others had; yet used deceitful and fraudulent methods to cheat their neighbours in buying and selling; and, to do this, did not stick to tell downright deliberate lies: and their tongue [is] deceitful in their mouth ; say one thing, and mean another; deceive their neighbours with their tongues in trade and commerce; averting things for truth they know to be false.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-16 - God, having showed how necessary it was that they should do justly here shows how plain it was that they had done unjustly. This voice of the Lord says to all, Hear the rod when it is coming, before you se it, and feel it. Hear the rod when it is come, and you are sensible of the smart; hear what counsels, what cautions it speaks. The voice of God is to be heard in the rod of God. Those who are dishonest in their dealings shall never be reckoned pure, whatever shows of devotion the may make. What is got by fraud and oppression, cannot be kept of enjoyed with satisfaction. What we hold closest we commonly los soonest. Sin is a root of bitterness, soon planted, but not soo plucked up again. Their being the people of God in name and profession while they kept themselves in his love, was an honour to them; but now being backsliders, their having been once the people of God turns to their reproach __________________________________________________________________
