Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Micah 2:9

_ _ The women of my people — that is, the widows of the men slain by you (Micah 2:2) ye cast out from their homes which had been their delight, and seize on them for yourselves.

_ _ from their children — that is, from the orphans of the widows.

_ _ taken away my glory — namely, their substance and raiment, which, being the fruit of God’s blessing on the young, reflected God’s glory. Thus Israel’s crime was not merely robbery, but sacrilege. Their sex did not save the women, nor their age the children from violence.

_ _ for ever — There was no repentance. They persevered in sin. The pledged garment was to be restored to the poor before sunset (Exodus 22:26, Exodus 22:27); but these never restored their unlawful booty.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Micah 2:6-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Micah 2:9

The women — The widows. Of my people — Of Israelites, not strangers, that were by peculiar provision from God's law, to be tenderly dealt with, Exodus 22:22. Cast out — You have turned out of their old habitations. From their children — You have turned their children out of their houses, and estates, which were secured by the law of God from any sale beyond the jubilee; yet you have confiscated them for ever. My glory — Which was the glory of my bounty to them.
