1 Micah's idols and priest
1 And there was a man of mount Ephraim, whose name was Micah.
2 And he said unto his mother, The eleven hundred shekels of silver that were taken from thee, about which thou cursedst, and spakest of also in mine ears, behold, the silver is with me; I took it. And his mother said, Gen. 14:19Blessed be thou of the Lord, my son.
3 And when he had restored the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, his mother said, I had wholly dedicated the silver unto the Lord from my hand for my son, to See Ex. 20:4,23;Lev. 19:4make a graven image and a molten image: now therefore I will restore it unto thee.
4 Yet he restored the money unto his mother; and his mother Is. 46:6took two hundred shekels of silver, and gave them to the founder, who made thereof a graven image and a molten image: and they were in the house of Micah.
6 ch. 18:1;& 19:1;& 21:25In those days there was no king in Israel, Deut. 12:8but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
7 And there was a young man out of See Josh. 19:15;ch. 19:1;Ruth 1:1,2;Mic. 5:2;Mat. 2:1,5,6Beth-lehem-judah of the family of Judah, who was a Levite, and he sojourned there.
9 And Micah said unto him, Whence comest thou? And he said unto him, I am a Levite of Beth-lehem-judah, and I go to sojourn where I may find a place.
10 And Micah said unto him, Dwell with me, ch. 18:19and be unto me a Gen. 45:8;Job 29:16father and a priest, and I will give thee ten shekels of silver by the year, and [c]a suit of apparel, and thy victuals. So the Levite went in.
11 And the Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the young man was unto him as one of his sons.
12 And Micah ver. 5consecrated the Levite; and the young man ch. 18:30became his priest, and was in the house of Micah.
13 Then said Micah, Now know I that the Lord will do me good, seeing I have a Levite to my priest.
