Micaiah

Micaiah, in the Bible, Samaritan prophet who foretold the death of Ahab.
Micaiah son of Imlah is a prophet in the Hebrew Bible. He gave a negative prophesy to Ahab (1 Kings 22:8) on his request (Catholic Encyclopedia article). He is not the same as the titular prophet of the Book of Micah, also called "The Morasthite" to distinguish him from Micaiah.
