You drive the women of my people from their pleasant homes. You take away my blessing from their children forever.

They fell suddenly upon the Jews; killed in one day one hundred and twenty thousand, and took two hundred thousand captive; and carried away much spoil. Thus, they rose up against them as enemies, when there was peace between the two kingdoms; spoiled them of their goods, carried away men, women, and children, till, at the remonstrances of the prophet Oded, they were released. See 2 Chronicles 28:6, etc. Micah 54ed in the days of Ahaz, and might have seen the barbarities which he here describes.

"I will display my glory among the nations, and all the nations will see the punishment I inflict and the hand I lay on them.
They trample on the heads of the poor as on the dust of the ground and deny justice to the oppressed. Father and son use the same girl and so profane my holy name.
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
