BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 23, Day 3: Micah 3

SUMMARY OF MICAH 3

Micah rebukes the leaders and false prophets of Israel and Judah for hating good and loving evil. The people will cry out to God who will hide His face from them.

The prophets judge others and are hypocrites. They will not be able to see the future anymore. They will be ashamed and disgraced. They will cover their faces because God has abandoned them.

The prophets despise justice and distort what is right. They build Zion with bloodshed and Jerusalem with wickedness. Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Because of these sins, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets.

I love the emphasis on false prophets and their judgment. We must always be wary of our leaders and make sure they are leading according to God’s laws.

End Notes BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 23, Day 3: Micah 3

The leaders of God’s people are violent to the people. Like cannibals eating the people. God will not answer these false leaders or the false prophets when they cry out to Him.

Leaders are held accountable and hold more responsibility than others.

The leaders, the priests, and the prophets are all condemned by Micah here and would face judgment.

Jerusalem will follow Samaria’s fate.

God’s people listened to Micah and repented. But soon, God would be forgotten, and sin would reemerge, leading to exile.
