Once upon a time in the land of Judah, there was a prophet named Micah. He saw that the people had turned away from God and were living wickedly. In the first part of his story, Micah spoke out against the leaders who ruled unjustly and took bribes. He warned them of God's coming judgment.

One day, as Micah was prophesying in the temple, a man named Menahem came to him with an offer. Menahem was the governor of the northern kingdom of Israel, and he wanted Micah to come with him and be his personal prophet. Micah agreed, but only on the condition that Menahem would not harm or oppress the people.

As they traveled together, Micah continued to speak out against the wickedness and idolatry of the people. He warned them of God's coming wrath and urged them to repent. But the people refused to listen, and they even tried to kill Micah.

Menahem protected Micah, but he eventually succumbed to the temptation to oppress the people himself. Micah was heartbroken and spoke out against Menahem's wickedness. He prophesied that God would punish Menahem for his betrayal of trust.

Despite the challenges and dangers, Micah continued to faithfully serve God and warn the people of their sin. He prophesied of a coming day when God would bring peace and justice to the land. And so, Micah's story is one of courage and conviction in the face of wickedness and opposition.
