Judges 17:4-5

17:4 When he gave the silver back to his mother, she 1  took two hundred pieces of silver 2  to a silversmith, who made them into a carved image and a metal image. She then put them in Micah’s house. 3  17:5 Now this man Micah owned a shrine. 4  He made an ephod 5  and some personal idols and hired one of his sons to serve as a priest. 6 

1 tn Heb “his mother.” The pronoun (“she”) has been substituted for the noun (“mother”) in the translation because of English style.

2 tn The Hebrew text has “and gave it.” The referent (the pieces of silver) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Heb “and it was in Micah’s house.”

4 tn Heb “house of God.”

5 sn Here an ephod probably refers to a priestly garment (cf. Exod 28:4-6).

6 tn Heb “and he filled the hand of one of his sons and he became his priest.”
