Chapter 17

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, Blessed [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 make 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 took 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. 

 

 


5

 

 And the man Micah had an house of gods, and made an ephod, and teraphim, and consecrated one of his sons, who became his priest. 

 

 


6

 

 In those days [there was] no king in Israel, [but] every man did [that which was] right in his own eyes. 

 

 


7

 

 And there was a young man out of Bethlehemjudah of the family of Judah, who [was] a Levite, and he sojourned there. 

 

 


8

 

 And the man departed out of the city from Bethlehemjudah to sojourn where he could find [a place]: and he came to mount Ephraim to the house of Micah, as he journeyed. 

 

 


9

 

 And Micah said unto him, Whence comest thou? And he said unto him, I [am] a Levite of Bethlehemjudah, and I go to sojourn where I may find [a place]. 

 

 


10

 

 And Micah said unto him, Dwell with me, and be unto me a father and a priest, and I will give thee ten [shekels] of silver by the year, and 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 consecrated the Levite; and the young man became 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.
