    Micah was a peasant farmer born in Moresheth, a quiet village located in Judah, southwest of Jerusalem; This peasant farmer prophesied against greed and cruelty that abounded in his time.

    In Micah’s time people were selfish and opportunistic and therefore justice was mismanaged, always seeking self-benefit over truth.

    Micah’s strongest words were against the corruption that permeated all areas of society, a society in which those who had power took advantage of it ignoring the call of God to act with justice. Of course in that historical context poor people were not only the result of an unequal society, but also their poverty resulting from corrupt laws and judicial processes that favored only the owners of power.

    Miqueas fue un campesino agricultor nacido en Moreset, una aldea tranquila ubicada en Judá, al suroeste de Jerusalén. Este campesino agricultor profetizaba en contra de la avaricia y la crueldad que abundaba en su tiempo.

    En tiempos de Miqueas las personas eran egoístas y oportunistas y por lo tanto la justicia era mal administrada, siempre buscando el beneficio propio por sobre la verdad.

    El llamado más fuerte de Miqueas fue contra la corrupción que permeaba todos los ámbitos de la sociedad. Sociedad en la que los que tenían el poder se aprovechaban de él ignorando el llamado de Dios a obrar con justicia.
