Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Micah 7:20

_ _ perform the truth — the faithful promise.

_ _ to Jacob ... Abraham — Thou shalt make good to their posterity the promise made to the patriarchs. God’s promises are called “mercy,” because they flow slowly from grace; “truth," because they will be surely performed (Luke 1:72, Luke 1:73; 1 Thessalonians 5:24).

_ _ sworn unto our fathers — (Psalms 105:9, Psalms 105:10). The promise to Abraham is in Genesis 12:2; to Isaac, in Genesis 26:24; to Jacob, in Genesis 28:13. This unchangeable promise implied an engagement that the seed of the patriarchs should never perish, and should be restored to their inheritance as often as they turned wholly to God (Deuteronomy 30:1, Deuteronomy 30:2).
