 C. Micah
Micah was a contemporary of Isaiah of Jerusalem and came from a rural background, specifically from a town called Moresheth, which lay to the west of Jerusalem.
The earnestness with which Micah pursued a critique of the opportunistic and heartless upper class suggests that he may have been one of the farmers who was threatened by the influential aristocracy (see 3:2-3).
Micah merely pointed out that a prophecy that supported this type of theology was prone to deceive the people by feeding their need for support and reassurance, and by telling them exactly what they wanted to hear.

It is more likely that the book of Micah reflects the ongoing tradition of Micah within the community, as they reflected upon and digested Micah’s words in light of changing history, and then reapplied that message in new ways within the community in later times.
Micah then addresses the evidences among the people of their lack of faithfulness: a lack of sense of social justice (2:1-5), a complacency that prevents them from hearing God’s message (2:6-13), and irresponsible leaders (3:1-8).
