Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Micah 2:10

_ _ Arise ye, and depart — not an exhortation to the children of God to depart out of an ungodly world, as it is often applied; though that sentiment is a scriptural one. This world is doubtless not our “rest,” being “polluted” with sin: it is our passage, not our portion; our aim, not our home (2 Corinthians 6:17; Hebrews 13:14). The imperatives express the certainty of the future event predicted. “Since such are your doings (compare Micah 2:7, Micah 2:8, etc.), My sentence on you is irrevocable (Micah 2:4, Micah 2:5), however distasteful to you (Micah 2:6); ye who have cast out others from their homes and possessions (Micah 2:2, Micah 2:8, Micah 2:9) must arise, depart, and be cast out of your own (Micah 2:4, Micah 2:5): for this is not your rest” (Numbers 10:33; Deuteronomy 12:9; Psalms 95:11). Canaan was designed to be a rest to them after their wilderness fatigues. But it is to be so no longer. Thus God refutes the people’s self-confidence, as if God were bound to them inseparably. The promise (Psalms 132:14) is quite consistent with temporary withdrawal of God from Israel for their sins.

_ _ it shall destroy youThe land shall spew you out, because of the defilements wherewith ye “polluted” it (Leviticus 18:25, Leviticus 18:28; Jeremiah 3:2; Ezekiel 36:12-14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary
