    a shortened form of Micaiah, who is like Jehovah? (1.) A man of
    Mount Ephraim, whose history so far is introduced in Judg. 17,
    apparently for the purpose of leading to an account of the
    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 (Judg. 18; 19:1-29; 21:25).
      (2.) The son of Merib-baal (Mephibosheth), 1 Chr. 8:34, 35.
      (3.) The first in rank of the priests of the family of
    Kohathites (1 Chr. 23:20).
      (4.) A descendant of Joel the Reubenite (1 Chr. 5:5).
      (5.) "The Morasthite," so called 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).
