WHERE did the title come from?
The Book of Micah is in the Old Testament, also called the Hebrew Bible. Here is a more extended version of the scripture passage. The full chapter is available on a link in the blogroll to the right.
“With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? 7Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?” 8He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:6-8 NRSV
