Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Micah 6:3

_ _ my people — the greatest aggravation of their sin, that God always treated them, and still treats them, as His people.

_ _ what have I done unto thee? — save kindness, that thou revoltest from Me (Jeremiah 2:5, Jeremiah 2:31).

_ _ wherein have I wearied thee? — What commandments have I enjoined that should have wearied thee as irksome (1 John 5:3)?

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Micah 6:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Micah 6:3

What have I done — What injustice or unkindness? What grievous, burdensome impositions have I laid upon thee. Wearied thee — Speak, what it is hath caused thee to be weary of me?
