    Micheal,

    "O thou inhabitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift beast: she is the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee."Micah 1:13 (KJVA)

    Apparently the people of Lachish participated in worshiping other gods, just as the 10 northern tribes, Israel, under King Jeroboam did, which lead to Jerusalem, the center of worship in Judah, to also begin idol worship.

    God is giving Judah warning about their idolatry just as He gave Israel warning. Israel failed to repent and God sent the Assyrians in about 722 BC who took the people of the 10 northern tribes and dispersed them among the nation: the lost tribes of Israel. Judah did not repent either, a subsequent to Micah's prophecy in 606 BC, Judah was attacked by the Babylonians and many were deported to Babylon and Jerusalem was destroyed.
