Micah Introduction


mic 0:0

Book Introduction - Micah

Micah, a contemporary of Isaiah, prophesied during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah over Judah, and of Pekahiah, Pekah, and Hoshea over Israel Kg2 15:23-30; Kg2 17:1-6. He was a prophet in Judah Jer 26:17-19 but the book called by his name chiefly concerns Samaria.

Micah falls into three prophetic strains, each beginning, "Hear":

1. (Micah 1:1 - 2:13)

2. (Micah 3:1 - 5:15)

3. (Micah 6:1 - 7:20)

The events recorded Micah cover a period of 40 years (Ussher).
