18:7
以色列王对约沙法说,还有一个人,是音拉的儿子米该雅。我们可以托他求问耶和华,只是我恨他。因为他指着我所说的预言,不说吉语,常说凶言。约沙法说,王不必这样说。
The king of Israel answered Jehoshaphat, "There is still one man through whom we can inquire of the Lord , but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me, but always bad. He is Micaiah son of Imlah."燭he king should not say that, Jehoshaphat replied.

All the other prophets were prophesying the same thing. "Attack Ramoth Gilead and be victorious," they said, "for the Lord will give it into the king's hand."
18:12
那去召米该雅的使者对米该雅说,众先知一口同音地都向王说吉言,你不如与他们说一样的话,也说吉言。

The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, "Didn't I tell you that he never prophesies anything good about me, but only bad?"
18:18
米该雅说,你们要听耶和华的话。我看见耶和华坐在宝座上,天上的万军侍立在他左右。
Micaiah continued, "Therefore hear the word of the Lord : I saw the Lord sitting on his throne with all the host of heaven standing on his right and on his left.

王如此说,把这个人下在监里,使他受苦,吃不饱喝不足,等候我平平安安地回来。

18:27
米该雅说,你若能平安回来,那就是耶和华没有借我说这话了。又说,众民哪,你们都要听。
