The book Of The Bible Micah
Along with Isaiah, Hosea, and Amos, Micah was a prophet of the eighth century BCE. Micah prophesied at a time when the Assyrians under the leadership of Sennacherib were attacking Judah in 701 BCE. Micah warned that the iniquity of Judah would lead to inevitable punishment at the hands of the Assyrians. Micah condemned the corruption of the political and religious officials of his day. Despite the condemnation of his prophecy, Micah’s preaching also delivers a message of divine forgiveness.
His prophecy ends with hope in a future restoration (7.7-20). A well-quoted passage from Micah is read during the liturgy on Monday of the Sixteenth Week of Year 11 and as a choice for the first reading for the Common of Saints. There it is written: “What does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” (6.8).
