Moresheth gath

("possession of Gath"), named by Micah alone (Micah 1:14), himself a Morasthite, i.e. of Moresheth. In the shephelah or "rolling low hills" of Judah. "Thou (Jerusalem) shalt give presents to Moresheth," begging for its help; but Maurer," thou shalt give a writing of renunciation (renouncing all claim) to Moresheth." "Gath" appended implies Moresherh for a time had fallen under the power of the neighboring Philistines of Gath. Ewald, "thou shalt give compensation to Moresheth itself only the possession of another city." Gath also means a "winepress"; Moresbeth may be named Gath from the many winepresses around.
