Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO MICAH 6\\

This chapter contains reproofs of the people of Israel for their sins,
threatening them with punishment for them. The prophet is bid to tell
them of the controversy the Lord had with them, which he did,
\\#Mic 6:1,2\\; and the Lord calls upon them to declare if they had any
thing to object to his attitude towards them, \\#Mic 6:3\\; and then puts
them in mind of the favours they had received from him, in bringing
them out of Egypt, and giving them such useful persons to go before
them, lead and instruct them, as he had, \\#Mic 6:4\\; and also reminds
them of what passed between Balak, king of Moab, and Balaam the
soothsayer; the questions of the one, and the answer of the other;
whereby the designs of the former against them were frustrated,
\\#Mic 6:5-8\\; but since the voice of the Lord by his prophet was
disregarded by them, they are called upon to hearken to the voice of
his rod, \\#Mic 6:9\\; which should be laid upon them for their fraudulent
dealings, injustice, oppression, lies, and deceit, \\#Mic 6:10-12\\; and
therefore are threatened with sickness and desolation, and a
deprivation of all good things, the fruit of their labours,
\\#Mic 6:13-15\\; and that because the statutes of Omri, the works of
Ahab, and their counsels, were observed by them, \\#Mic 6:16\\.
