Old Testament


Micah, seven chapters, speaks against the Jews' sins:
In the time of Kings Jotham, and Ahaz, he brings
Condemnation of their false idols, greed, and crimes,
But sees God reigning from Jerusalem, end-times.
The Lord's pleased, not by blood sacrifices, he cries,
But by justice, mercy, and humble God-tuned lives.
He foretells Babylon will take captive the Jews
And their deliverance, a century 'fore the news,
While in chapter five, verse two, is a prophecy
That One originating in eternity
Shall come from Bethlehem and be Israel's King,
Which Christ seven centuries later was fulfilling!
