Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Micah 4:5

_ _ For — rather, Though it be that all people walk after their several gods, yet we (the Jews in the dispersion) will walk in the name of the Lord. So the Hebrew particle means in the Margin, Genesis 8:21; Exodus 13:17; Joshua 17:18. The resolution of the exile Jews is: As Jehovah gives us hope of so glorious a restoration, notwithstanding the overthrow of our temple and nation, we must in confident reliance on His promise persevere in the true worship of Him, however the nations around, our superiors now in strength and numbers, walk after their gods [Rosenmuller]. As the Jews were thoroughly weaned from idols by the Babylonian captivity, so they shall be completely cured of unbelief by their present long dispersion (Zechariah 10:8-12).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Micah 4:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Micah 4:5

All people will walk — It is the practice of all nations, to serve their gods. Will walk — Seek the Lord, embrace his law and worship.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Micah 4:5

For all people will walk (g) every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.

(g) He shows that the people of God ought to remain constant in their religion, even if all the world should give themselves to their superstition and idolatry.
