Micah 7:11-12

Context

7:11 It will be a day for rebuilding your walls;

in that day your boundary will be extended. 1 

A Closing Prayer

7:12 In that day people 2  will come to you 3 

from Assyria as far as 4  Egypt,

from Egypt as far as the Euphrates River, 5 

from the seacoasts 6  and the mountains. 7 

1 sn Personified Jerusalem declares her confidence in vv. 8-10; in this verse she is assured that she will indeed be vindicated.

2 tn Heb “they.” The referent has been specified as “people,” referring either to the nations (coming to God with their tribute) or to the exiles of Israel (returning to the Lord).

3 tn The masculine pronominal suffix suggests the Lord is addressed. Some emend to a feminine form and take Jerusalem as the addressee.

4 tc The MT reads וְעָרֵי (vÿarey, “and the cities [of Egypt]”), but the parallel line indicates this is a corruption of וְעַד (vÿad, “even to”).

5 tn Heb “the River,” referring to the Euphrates River. This has been specified in the translation for clarity (so also NASB, NIV).

6 tn Heb “and sea from sea.” Many prefer to emend this to מִיָּם עַד יָם (miyyamad yam, “from sea to sea”).

7 tn Heb “and mountain of the mountain.” Many prefer to emend this to וּמֵהַר עַד הַר (umeharad har, “and mountain to mountain”).
