Abstract Almost twenty years after the publication of his book Un profeta tra oppressori e oppressi. Analisi esegetica del capitolo 2 di Michea nel piano generale del libro, the author presents a syntactic and compositional analysis of the whole Hebrew text of the Prophet Micah. Referring to his previous analysis and partly revising it, the author proposes a division of the text in twenty-one units and five main sections in a chiastic composition, i.e. ch. 1 // 6:1-7:6, ch. 2 // chs. 3-5, with 7:7-20 as the concluding unit. Based on his theory of a coherent Hebrew verb system both for prose and poetry, the author pays careful attention to the verb forms and to the resulting dynamics of communication necessary to achieve a proper interpretation of any text. Besides underlying a strong unity of composition for the whole book, as recognized by many interpreters, the author also proposes a rather precise date between 713 and 701 B.C. for the different historical situations evoked in the book, also on the basis of a Judaean exile in the VIII cent. B.C., an event usually not considered by scholars. Thus, one single author, Micah, for the whole prophecy is seen as a concrete possibility.
