“He Delighteth in Mercy”
Jonah; Micah

Jonah on the Beach at Nineveh, by Daniel A. Lewis

As you record your impressions, think about how the principles in Jonah and Micah relate to what you have been learning in the scriptures.

Jonah 1: Jonah is sent to call Nineveh to repentance—He flees on a ship, is cast into the sea, and is swallowed by a great fish.

Jonah 2: Jonah prays to the Lord, and the fish vomits him out on dry ground.

Jonah 3: Jonah prophesies the downfall of Nineveh—The people repent, and the city is saved.

Jonah 4: Jonah is displeased with the Lord for His mercy upon the people—The Lord rebukes him.

Micah 1: Micah prophesies the downfall of Samaria and Jerusalem.

Micah 2: The destruction of Israel is lamented—The Lord will gather the remnant of Israel.

Micah 3: Priests who teach for hire and prophets who divine for money bring a curse upon the people.

Micah 4: In the last days, the temple will be built, Israel will gather to it, the millennial era will commence, and the Lord will reign in Zion.

Micah 5: The Messiah will be born in Bethlehem—In the last days, the remnant of Jacob will triumph gloriously over the Gentiles.

Micah 6: In spite of all His goodness to them, the people have not served the Lord in spirit and in truth—They must act righteously, love mercy, and walk humbly before Him.

Micah 7: Though the people of Israel have rebelled, yet in the last days the Lord will have mercy on them—He will have compassion and pardon their iniquities.
