Go to Bible: Micah 4
Mic 4:1

“the house of Yahweh.” That refers to the Temple, and since this is the last days, it is the Temple in the Millennial Kingdom.

“lifted up above the hills.” The Hebrew word “lifted up” can also mean “exalted.” In this case both meanings are true because in the Millennial Kingdom the mountain on which God’s Temple and the city of Jerusalem are located will be the highest mountain in the world, and also will be “exalted” in both a physical sense and spiritual sense. Other verses that say that Mount Zion will be the highest mountain include Isaiah 2:2 and Ezekiel 20:40. [For more on the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].

Mic 4:2

“Many nations.” The Old Testament foretold that the Messiah would be a blessing both to the Jews and to the Gentiles, the “nations.” The first prophecy of the Messiah is the one God made to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 3:15, and that was thousands of years before the Jews existed. About 2000 years after that first prophecy of the Messiah, God promised Abraham that all the people of earth, not just the Jews, would be blessed through him (Gen. 12:3). Then God repeated that promise to Isaac (Gen. 26:4); and to Jacob (Gen. 28:14). Besides those promises, the Old Testament had a number of verses that spoke of Gentiles being included in the Messianic Kingdom, which meant they were granted everlasting life (Ps. 102:15; Isa. 2:2-4; 19:23-25; 42:6; 49:6; 51:4-5; 56:3-7; 60:3; 66:18-21; Ezek. 39:21, 27; Micah 4:2; Hag. 2:7; Zech. 8:22).

“devote.” That is, devote them to Yahweh as an offering. [For more on things “devoted” to Yahweh, see commentary on Josh. 6:17].
