Mica (Mi´kuh; Heb., “who is like Yah[weh]?”)

A shortened form of Micaiah. 1 The son of Mephibosheth (Meribbaal) and Saul’s great-grandson by Jonathan (2Sam 9:12); he is also called Micah (1Chr 8:34-35). 2 A Levite, the son of Zichri and father of Mattaniah, a postexilic inhabitant of Jerusalem (1Chr 9:15; Neh 11:22); he is probably the same Levite who is elsewhere called the son of Zabdiel and father of Mattaniah (1Chr 11:17). He may also be the same Levite called Micaiah and the son of Zaccur and father of Mattaniah (Neh 12:35). It is possible that these represent three different persons. 3 A Levite who signed the covenant to keep the law (Neh 10:11); possibly the same as 2 above.
