Micah

Micah 2:12-13 The Remnant Will Be Great.

It is possible for one to suppose that the concept of the remnant of necessity means it is a small number. In relationship to how many may actually be external members of the covenant community this may be the case at any given time. Here we read that the remnant will be assembled and gathered in such numbers that “they shall make a loud noise because of so many people” (v. 12 Cf. 4:6-7; Jer. 31:10; Ezek. 36:37-38). There will be so many in the number of the remnant that they will “break open” and “break out,” and when they pass through the gate the king will lead them, so it will involve the political leadership, “with the LORD at their head” (v. 13 Cf. Is. 53:12; Hos. 3:5).
