My people, remember now what Balak king of Moab devised (plotted against you) and what (how) Balaam the son of Beor answered (responded to) him; from Shittim unto Gilgal, that ye may know (will recognize) the righteous acts of the LORD - Micah 6:5
First one needs to remember what was devised or plotted against us, secondly one should remember the way Balaam answered or responded. And this should lead to the knowledge and recognition of the righteous acts of the Lord.
But what exactly are we talking about?
- What part of the plot should one remember or learn from?
- Which part of the many words Balaam spoke or actions he performed should one keep in mind?
- What do the words Shettim and Gilgal refer to here?
- Last why do all of these lead to the knowledge of the righteous deeds of HaShem? (why the righteous deeds specifically).
Whats the deeper meaning of this advice to us?
