Summary of the Book of Micah
Micah is the Thirty-third book of the Holy Bible and it is the Thirty-third out of Thirty-nine Old Testament Books. Micah is the sixth of the Minor Prophets. Micah prophesied at the same time as Isaiah and Hosea. He prophesied during the tragic and historic years surrounding the Assyrian invasion of the northern Kingdom. He also predicted event, and it came to pass between 10 and 15 years later, in 722 BC. Micah’s earlier prophecies concerned judgement on the Kingdom of Israel and Judah for adultery.
First, he recognized that their sin had left them impoverished, he realized that there is no cluster to eat of the first-ripe fruit which my soul desires. Then he described some of their specific sins and their general character, revealing their deeply ingrained sin against others. His later prophecies concerned the future Kingdom that Jesus spoke of. The Book of Micah has seven chapters, I found chapter 7:14- 20 very interesting, it talks about the prayer Micah prayed for the LORD to have compassion on Israel.
Micah 7:14-20 NIV
The LORD's Compassion on Israel
Shepherd your people with your staff, the flock of your inheritance, which lives by itself in a forest, in fertile pasturelands. Let them feed in Bashan and Gilead as in days long ago.
"As in the days when you came out of Egypt, I will show them my wonders."
Nations will see and be ashamed, deprived of all their power. They will put their hands over their mouths and their ears will become deaf.
They will lick dust like a snake, like creatures that crawl on the ground. They will come trembling out of their dens; they will turn in fear to the Lord our God and will be afraid of you.
Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.
You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.
You will be faithful to Jacob, and show love to Abraham, as you pledged on oath to our ancestors in days long ago.
THE SAME GOD THAT HAD COMPASSION ON ISAREL IS THE SAME GOD TODAY HE HAS NOT CHANGED. HE WILL HAVE COMPASSION ON US TODAY.
