  1. I love this series, gives me a good incentive to read the book. And allows enough general understanding before getting into the details. Bless you.

    • Then it might be nice to know that your name is derived from mīkhāyah where the “yah” suffix is for Yahweh (Jehovah); this literally translates to “Who is like God?”

    • Jean Louw remember the proper punctuation when saying the phrase. There is a question mark at the end. “Who is like God?” The implied answer is, “no one.” He is unique and above all others.

  2. I think if Micah is spot on. Evil must be held in check. Not so rashly that obvious scapegoats are gnostically entrained without their puppet master getting his/her wings clipped. The truth will set us free. It’s time.

  3. Thank you for these illustrated overviews of the books of the Bible! So well done and intructive, have shared them with friends and family, thank you very much, love them!

  4. Thank you for one of the very best discussions on Micah I have seen here on

    I have made a years-long study of The Book of Micah, and of course it’s all good, and like everyone else I love 5:2, 6:8, 7: 18 —

    – And 4:3: “And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar
    off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears
    into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”

    No one is sure whether it was Micah or Isaiah who copied this verse from the other, but everyone overlooks the obvious: The Lord said exactly this to both of the prophets, and instructed them to write it thus. What difference does it make which he directed first to write these words?

    But what I feel is the most powerful verse of Micah of all is what comes next (4:4)

    “But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and
    none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath
    spoken it.”

    Oh my God! Did you hear that!? “For the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath
    spoken it.” Oh my God!

    In other words, we know this will definitely happen because God said so! Future peace on Earth is assured. It will happen! Is there anything more rock solid in the whole of the Old Testament? Wow!
