WOE TO THOSE WHO PLAN INIQUITY.
Micah pronounces doom and misery on the people who were using their power and influence to take advantage of others in order to reach their own selfish aims.
DO NOT PROPHESY.
Judah's false prophets were criticizing Micah for bringing a message of judgement (Isaiah 30:10).
WINE AND BEER
Micah was mocking the people by saying anyone could gain a following if they promised prosperity and plenty of intoxicating drink for everyone who wanted it. His words were meant to cut through their foolish thinking. They were eagerly accepting false prophets who only predicted "positive" things. Today there are still pastors who refuse to warn God's people about the consequences of adopting the ungodly social customs of the society in which they live.
THE REMNANT OF ISRAEL.
Micah adds a word of hope be announcing that God would spare a remnant - a small portion of faithful people - from Israel and Judah, who would return to the promised land following their time in Elie (Isaiah 6:13; 10:20; 17:7). The land would again be filled with the quick and hurried activity of people going about their daily business. (2 Kings 15:29; 17:5; 24:1).
