Among the Minor Prophets, this superscription is closest in form to those for Hosea ( 1.1 ), Amos ( 1.1 ), and Zephaniah ( 1.1 ). Micah is a short form of the name Micaiah (1 Kings 22 ), which means, “Who is like Yahweh?” Moresheth, a small town in southwest Judah (cf. 1.14 ), probably Tell el‐Judeidah, 37 km (23 mi) southwest of Jerusalem. Which he saw, Judean prophecy often had a visionary quality (e.g., Isa 1.1; Ezek 1.1.; Am 1.1; Ob 1; Nah 1.1; Hab 1.1 ). Jotham reigned from ca. 759 to 743 bce; Ahaz from 743/735 to 727/715; Hezekiah from 727/715 to 698/687 (the data are inconsistent for the reigns of Ahaz and Hezekiah).
