Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO MICAH 7\\

This chapter begins with a lamentation of the prophet, in the name of
the church and people of God, concerning the general depravity and
corruption of the times in which he lived, \\#Mic 7:1-6\\; then declares
what he was determined to do for his relief in such circumstances,
\\#Mic 7:7\\; comforts himself and the church with a good hope and firm
belief of its being otherwise and better with them, to the shame and
confusion of their enemies that now rejoiced, though without just
reason for it, \\#Mic 7:8-10\\; with promises of deliverance, after a
desolation of the land for some time, \\#Mic 7:11-13\\; and with the
answer returned to the prayers of the prophet, \\#Mic 7:14,15\\; which
would issue in the astonishment of the world, and their subjection to
the church of God, \\#Mic 7:16,17\\; and the chapter is concluded with
admiration at the pardoning grace and mercy of God, and his
faithfulness to his promises, \\#Mic 7:18-20\\.
