Micah: Absurdity

  1. "The LORD ... will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth." 1:3

  2. "The mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft ... and I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley."
    (Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are caused by God's anger.) 1:4-6

  3. "I will wail and howl, I will go stripped and naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons." 1:8

  4. "Roll thyself in the dust ... having thy shame naked." 1:10-11

  5. Micah says "woe" to those that devise evil , but only two verses later, he devises evil against "this family." Woe is God. 2:1, 3

  6. Watch out for lying prophets that bite (with their teeth). 3:5

  7. "The prophets thereof divine for money." Some things never change. 3:11

  8. In the last days God will put "the mountain of the house of the Lord" on "top of the mountains." 4:1

  9. "Woe is me! ... there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit." 7:1

  10. There is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net." 7:2

  11. "Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom."
    Advice like this is only found in the Bible. 7:5
