“Who Are of the House of Israel”

W. Cleon Skousen

But if the wicked Gentiles do not repent and generally refuse to embrace the gospel, the prophecy of Micah will be literally fulfilled. In this next verse Jesus now gives the general framework of this prophecy which Micah uttered at least a thousand years earlier. Jesus said:

“But if they will not turn unto me, and hearken unto my voice, I will suffer them, yea, I will suffer my people, O house of Israel, that they shall go through among them, and shall tread them down, and they shall be as salt that hath lost its savor, which is thenceforth good for nothing but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of my people, O house of Israel.”
