Micah or Micha (מִיכָה, Standard Hebrew Miḫa, Tiberian Hebrew Mḵāh) is the name of several people in the Bible Old Testament and Jewish Tanakh.

The name is a shortened form of Micaiah or Michaihu (מִיכַיְהוּ, Standard Hebrew Miḫayhu, Tiberian Hebrew Mḵayh), meaning "one who is like the LORD."

  1. A man of Mount Ephraim, whose history so far is introduced in Jdg. 17, apparently for the purpose of leading to an account of he settlement of the tribe of Dan in Northern Palestine, and for the purpose also of illustrating the lawlessness of the times in which he lived (Jdg. 18; 19:1-29; 21:25). In violation of the law he took some silver pieces and made some holy images. Mistakenly, he felt this was in God's honour.
  2. The son of Merib-baal (Mephibosheth). (2 Samuel 9:12) He was still a child when his father was invited to David's house. He became the father of Pithon, Melech, Tarea and Ahaz. (1Cr. 8:33-35;9:39-41)
  3. The first in rank of the priests of the family of Kohathites (1Cr. 23:20).
  4. A descendant of Joel the Reubenite (1Cr. 5:5).
  5. The author of the Book of Micah, also called "The Morasthite" to distinguish him from Micaiah, the son of Imlah (1 Kings 22:8). He was a prophet of Judah, a contemporary of Isaiah (Micah 1:1), a native of Moresheth of Gath (1:14, 15). Very little is known of the circumstances of his life (comp. Jer. 26:18, 19). He warned that God would judge the land because of their false worship and moral corruption. He prophesied that God would make Samaria a heap of ruins and likewise Zion.
