SUMMARY OF MICAH 1-2
We learn when Micah prophesized in verse 1: during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah—the vision he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem. The Lord will come down and punish His people for their sins. Micah will mourn because of the people’s sins, weeping and wailing.
Micah says that there is woe to those who plot evil, who covet, steal, defraud, and rob others. As consequences, the Lord will plan disasters upon His people. There will be false prophets. Yet, God will redeem a remnant of Israel.

Micah 1:1-7: because of Jacob’s transgression, because of the sins of the people of Israel. They worshipped idols.
Micah 2:1-5: Planning sin and plotting evil. Covet fields and houses and seize them. They defraud people of their homes and rob them of their inheritance

b) Because our hearts and nature are evil. We are tempted, and we sin.
c) Sin is easy to do, which is why so everyone does it. Sometimes, following God’s ways are harder. It’s a choice to not sin just as much as it’s a choice to sin. It’s important to be cognizant of your choices.
5) God would gather a remnant and the One (Jesus) would go before them.

End Notes BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 23, Day 2: Micah 1-2
Moresheth (also called Moresheth Gath in Micah 1:14) was about 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest of Jerusalem. Micah was from the country and he preached somewhere around 739 BC and 686 BC, the same time as Isaiah, Amos, and Hosea. His name means “Who is like the Lord.”
Micah tells the people to listen to what he has to say. Idolatry was everywhere, and it was time to put God first again.
God will come to judge Israel and Judah. Samaria will be left desolate because of it.
Micah announces the judgement on Judah howling and wailing, very sad to do so.
The nations will know of God’s judgment, and it will bring shame on the people.
Sin is bad, but planned sin is even worse. God will bring His people low because of their planned sins.
God would take away what He had given them.
Still, God will restore His people even if they embrace false prophets.
