Book of a southern prophet which foretells the fall of Jerusalem and calls the people to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with God. 


Do justice, love kindness, walk humbly with God
(Mic 6:6)

Micah prophesied in the southern kingdom of Judah.  He lived in the late eighth century BC when the Assyrians were conquering the northern kingdom. He was a contemporary of Isaiah.

Micah declares that God will judge Samaria and Jerusalem because of unjust social practices, false teachers, and corrupt leaders.  Yet he also offers hope that God will preserve a remnant of the people. Like Isaiah, Micah envisioned a time when people would beat their swords into plowshares. In the new era of peace, people would be able to sit under their own vines and fig trees without fear. One oracle promises that from Bethlehem will come a future ruler of Israel. The prophet denounces dishonesty and violence. God does not seek burnt offerings for sins, but that people do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God (6:6-8). Micah concludes with a vision of restoration.

Mic 6:6 - To do justice
