The prophecies of Micah and Nahum were delivered to the people of the southern kingdom of Judah although Nahum’s message came about one hundred years after Micah. Both were given under the shadow of the threat of invasion from the mighty Assyrian empire, which had already taken captive Judah’s northern neighbour, Israel. In this commentary, Michael Bentley shows that these prophecies are still relevant for God’s people today. The Lord is still in control over the nations and the lives of individuals and one day he will balance the books as all will have to give an account of themselves to him. Yet for those who trust in him he is still, to use Nahum’s words, “a refuge in times of trouble” and the messenger is still “one who brings good news who proclaims peace.”
