    Definitions for Micah 7:12

    Sea - Large basin.

    Clarke's Commentary on Micah 7:12

    In that day also he shall come - Bp. Newcome translates: -

    "And in that day they shall come unto thee

    From Assyria and the fenced cities;

    And from Egypt even unto the river."

    Calmet translates: -

    "They shall come to thee from Assyria even unto Egypt;

    And from Egypt even to the river; (Euphrates);

    And from one sea to another, and from one mountain to another."

    This, says he, gives an easy sense; whereas we cannot tell where to find those fortified cities spoken of by other translators. The Israelites were to return from their captivity, and re-occupy their ancient country from Assyria to Egypt; that is, from the river Euphrates to the river Nile; and from the Mediterranean Sea to the Ocean, and from Mount Libanus to the mountains of Arabia Petraea, or Mount Seir. See Amos 8:12. This prediction was literally fulfilled under the Asmoneans. The Jewish nation was greatly extended and very powerful under Herod, at the time that our Lord was born. See Calmet.

To the river - To Euphrates. To sea - From the Caspian to the Persian and to the Midland sea. From mountain - That is, from all parts of their captivity, they shall return to their own country.
