The Prophet Micah

Micah (740-700 B.C.) "mika yahu" (who is like Yaweh). Warned of the Assyrian and Babylonian invasions and predicted the fall of both Samaria and Jerusalem, the capital cities of both the northern and southern kingdoms. It is set forth in the form of a lawsuit by God with Micah as the prosecuting attorney and the mountains and hills (places of idolatry) as the silent judges. He says, "her wounds are incurable," because the people are corrupt and also the leaders were described as "butchering the people." Micah also proclaimed the birthplace of the Messiah and the glories of the future kingdom.
