During Micahís time, the Israelites are enjoying an economic boom. Trade and commerce are flourishing and people are getting rich. Sounds like a good thing, right? Except that the rich are getting rich at the expense of the poor getting poorer. Wealthy folks are taking land from small farmers and peasants and building gated communities with swimming pools and putting greens in every backyard (OK, Iím not positive on that last part). If you remember anything about the laws God gave the Israelites way back in the old days, itís that he is not happy when people are marginalized or taken advantage of, so Micah lays down some rebukes and judgements!
