Judges 17

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21]

17:1 There was a man of the hill country of E'phraim, whose name was Micah.

17:2 And he said to his mother, "The eleven hundred pieces of silver which were taken from you, about which you uttered a curse, and also spoke it in my ears, behold, the silver is with me; I took it." And his mother said, "Blessed be my son by the LORD."

17:3 And he restored the eleven hundred pieces of silver to his mother; and his mother said, "I consecrate the silver to the LORD from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image; now therefore I will restore it to you."

17:4 So when he restored the money to his mother, his mother took two hundred pieces of silver, and gave it to the silversmith, who made it into a graven image and a molten image; and it was in the house of Micah.

17:5 And the man Micah had a shrine, and he made an ephod and teraphim, and installed one of his sons, who became his priest.

17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.

17:7 Now there was a young man of Bethlehem in Judah, of the family of Judah, who was a Levite; and he sojourned there.

17:8 And the man departed from the town of Bethlehem in Judah, to live where he could find a place; and as he journeyed, he came to the hill country of E'phraim to the house of Micah.

17:9 And Micah said to him, "From where do you come?" And he said to him, "I am a Levite of Bethlehem in Judah, and I am going to sojourn where I may find a place."

17:10 And Micah said to him, "Stay with me, and be to me a father and a priest, and I will give you ten pieces of silver a year, and a suit of apparel, and your living."

17:11 And the Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the young man became to him like one of his sons.

17:12 And Micah installed the Levite, and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah.

17:13 Then Micah said, "Now I know that the LORD will prosper me, because I have a Levite as priest."
