Hear what the Lord says:
Rise, plead your case before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice.
Hear, you mountains, the controversy of the Lord,
and you enduring foundations of the earth;” (Micah 6:1–2a)
According to Micah, God has brought suit against the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. While this may not be surprising, it is something of a shock to see that creation serves as the jury! The mountains, the hills, the foundations of the earth are to hear God’s case against the people because justice, order, and peace are woven into the very fabric of creation. Therefore, there is no one who better understands the harmony God intends for the world and no one who better recognizes when that harmony has been broken. – rc
