Book Overview - Micah

by Thomas Coke

THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET MICAH.

MICAH the Morasthite, or of Moresa, a village near the city Eleutheropolis, in the southern part of Judah, prophesied under Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, for about fifty years. He appeared almost at the same time with Isaiah, and seems to have borrowed some expressions from him. Compare ch. Micah 4:1 with Isaiah 2:2. Bishop Lowth says, that his style is for the most part concise, comprehensive, and nervous; sometimes very nearly approaching to the obscurity of Hosea, but in many places sublime and animated, and extremely poetical. See his 21st Prelection, and Calmet.
