Discussion for Micah 1:14

  • Audrey Leshinski on Micah 1:14
    In Micah 1:14, WHO is Moreshethgath? Is that an idol or god of the people?
  • Chris - in Reply on Micah 1:14
    From my research, Moreshethgath is actually a city (maybe more like a township) of Israel (of olden times). The prophet Micah was said to come from there, as he is referred to as Micah, the Morasthite, which is name given to its inhabitants. From the map, it is located roughly between the Dead Sea & Ashkelon.
