Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Micah 5:8

_ _ as a lion — In Micah 5:7 Israel’s benignant influence on the nations is described; but here her vengeance on the godless hosts who assail her (Isaiah 66:15, Isaiah 66:16, Isaiah 66:19, Isaiah 66:24; Zechariah 12:3, Zechariah 12:6, Zechariah 12:8, Zechariah 12:9; Zechariah 14:17, Zechariah 14:18). Judah will be “as a lion,” not in respect to its cruelty, but in its power of striking terror into all opponents. Under the Maccabees, the Jews acquired Idumea, Samaria, and parts of the territory of Ammon and Moab [Grotius]. But this was only the earnest of their future glory on their coming restoration.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Micah 5:7-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Micah 5:8

As a lion — For strength and courage, which the beasts of the forest dare not oppose, and cannot resist.
