"The Book of Micah is a prophetic book in the Tanakh/Old Testament, and the sixth of the 12 minor prophets," according to Wikipedia. "It records the sayings of Micah, Mikayahu, meaning 'Who is like Yahweh?', an 8th-century B.C. prophet from the village of Moresheth in Judah.

"The book has three major divisions, chapters 1–2, 3–5 and 6–7, each introduced by the word 'Hear,' with a pattern of alternating announcements of doom and expressions of hope within each division. Micah reproaches unjust leaders, defends the rights of the poor against the rich and powerful, and preaches social justice; while looking forward to a world at peace centered on Zion under the leadership of a new Davidic monarch.

"While the book is relatively short, it includes lament (1.8–16; 7.8–10), theophany (1.3–4), hymnic prayer of petition and confidence (7.14–20),[7] and the 'covenant lawsuit' (6.1–8), a distinct genre in which Yahweh (God) sues Israel for breach of contract, that is, for violation of the Sinai covenant."
