Micaiah

Additional Links

Micaiah, 1

Micai´ah (who as Jehovah?), a prophet of the time of Ahab. He was absent from the mob of false prophets who incited the kings of Israel and Judah to march against the Syrians in Ramoth-gilead; for Ahab, having been offended by his sincerity and boldness, had not called for him on this occasion. But he was sent for at the special desire of Jehoshaphat; and as he declared against the enterprise, which the other prophets encouraged, Ahab commanded him to be imprisoned, and allowed only 'bread and water of affliction' till he returned from the wars in peace. To which the prophet ominously answered, 'If thou return at all in peace, then the Lord hath not spoken by me' (). The event corresponded with this intimation [AHAB]; but we have no further information concerning the prophet.

Micaiah, 2

One of the princes whom Jehoshaphat sent to 'teach in the cities of Judah' ().

Michaiah, 3

Michaiah, son of Gemariah, who, after having heard Baruch read the terrible predictions of Jeremiah in his father's hall, went, apparently with good intentions, to report to the king's officers what he had heard ().
