Micah (mî'kah), who is like Jehovah? 1. An idolater in Mount Ephraim. Judges 17:1-13; Judges 18:2. The sixth of the minor prophets, is called the Morashite, from his birthplace Moresheh, in the territory of Gath, westward from Jerusalem, He prophesied during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, b.c. 750-698, and was a contemporary of Isaiah, whom he often resembles in style and expressions. Compare, for instance, Isaiah 2:2 with Micah 4:1, or Isaiah 41:15 with Micah 4:13.
The Book of Micah contains prophecies concerning Samaria and Jerusalem. In his prophecies concerning Messiah he is very precise. The prediction that Christ should be born in Bethlehem belongs to him. 5:2. His style is poetic throughout, pure, rich in images and plays upon words, old and lofty, but sometimes abrupt and obscure. There are seven persons of this name mentioned in the Bible.
