Micah Trivia:

Micah: Prophecy

  1. Watch out for lying prophets that bite (with their teeth). 3:5
  2. "The prophets thereof divine for money." Some things never change. 3:11
  3. In the last days God will put "the mountain of the house of the Lord" on "top of the mountains." 4:1
  4. "But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting."

    The gospel of Matthew (2:5-6) claims that Jesus's birth in Bethlehem fulfils this prophecy. But this is unlikely since the prophecy does not refer to the Messiah, but rather to a military leader, as can be seen from verses 6-10. This leader is supposed to defeat the Assyrians, which, of course, Jesus never did.
