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 2 Kings 15:23-30; 2 Kings 17:1-6. He was a prophet in Judah Jeremiah 26:17-19 but the book called by his name chiefly concerns Samaria.
Micah falls into three prophetic strains, each beginning, "Hear": Micah 1:1-13; Micah 3:1-15; Micah 6:1-20
The events recorded Micah cover a period of 40 years (Ussher).
