Micah 3:7 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Shall the seers be ashamed - For the false visions of comfort and prosperity which they pretended to see.

The Apostasy in Two Days.
In our introduction we gave a number of texts which spoke of the whole of the gospel dispensation as one day; but any period of time distinguished by some extraordinary historic event may be and is also termed a day. The apostasy or dark noonday being under two forms is marked in Bible history as two days. The first form of the apostasy, namely, Catholicism, is called by the Scriptures a "dark day." A Cloudy Day.
