Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Micah 7:9

_ _ bear — patiently.

_ _ the indignation of the Lord — His punishment inflicted on me (Lamentations 3:39). The true penitent “accepts the punishment of his iniquity” (Leviticus 26:41, Leviticus 26:43); they who murmur against God, do not yet know their guilt (Job 40:4, Job 40:5).

_ _ execute judgment for me — against my foe. God’s people plead guilty before God; but, in respect to their human foes, they are innocent and undeserving of their foes’ injuries.

_ _ bring me forth to the light — to the temporal and spiritual redemption.

_ _ I shall behold his righteousness — His gracious faithfulness to His promises (Psalms 103:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Micah 7:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Micah 7:9

Plead — Against mine enemy, now he pleads his own cause against me. His righteousness — The truth and riches of his promised salvation.
