Calvin's Preface to Micah 
    Among the Minor Prophets, Micah comes next, who is commonly 
called Micaiah. But he was the second, as they say, of this name; 
for the first was the Micaiah who had a contest with the wicked king 
Ahab; and he then exercised his Prophetic office. But the second was 
in the same age with Isaiah, perhaps a little later: at least Isaiah 
had been performing his office some years before Micah had been 
called. It appears then that he was added to Isaiah, that he might 
confirm his doctrine; for that holy man had to do with ungodly men, 
with men of a hardened neck, yea, and so wicked, that they were 
wholly irreclaimable. That their doctrine therefore might be more 
entitled to credit, it pleased God that Isaiah and Micah should 
deliver their message at the same time, as it were, with one mouth, 
and avow their consent, that all the disobedient might be proved 
    But I will now come to his words: for the contents of this Book 
suggest what is useful for our instruction.
