Title: Micah Exhorts the Israelites to Repent

Micah tells people that sacrifice was supposed to be the exception for sin, not an excuse to do more of it. Not a thousand rams or thousand rivers of oil will cover the cost of their sin continuously. For the rich (who lie and are 'full of violence'), God will punish them for thinking that evil's only consequence on their person is a toll on their finances.
