Micah 7:2-7 says, “The godly has perished from the earth, and there is no one upright among mankind; they all lie in wait for blood, and each hunts the other with a net. Their hands are on what is evil, to do it well; the prince and the judge ask for a bribe, and the great man utters the evil desire of his soul; thus they weave it together. The best of them is like a brier, the most upright of them a thorn hedge. The day of your watchmen, of your punishment, has come; now their confusion is at hand. Put no trust in a neighbor; have no confidence in a friend; guard the doors of your mouth from her who lies in your arms; for the son treats the father with contempt, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house. But as for me, I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.”
Micah was a Godly prophet who lived in a very evil time in Israel’s history. They had turned from God and refused to do right, yet Micah had the responsibility to prophesy to Israel about their sins. He, like most other prophets was not well received. He was to the point that he felt like there was no righteous person left. He couldn’t trust people. Even father, mother, mother in law, neighbors, and even those in his own house. Yet through all of the turmoil, he still trusted in God as the one who would bring him salvation and hear him.
