Judges 17:1-13

And there was a man
<0376>
of mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Micah
<04321>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto his mother
<0517>_,
The eleven hundred
<0505> <03967>
[shekels] of silver
<03701>
that were taken
<03947> (8795)
from thee, about which thou cursedst
<0422> (8804)_,
and spakest
<0559> (8804)
of also in mine ears
<0241>_,
behold, the silver
<03701>
[is] with me; I took
<03947> (8804)
it. And his mother
<0517>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Blessed
<01288> (8803)
[be thou] of the LORD
<03068>_,
my son
<01121>_.
And when he had restored
<07725> (8686)
the eleven hundred
<0505> <03967>
[shekels] of silver
<03701>
to his mother
<0517>_,
his mother
<0517>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I had wholly
<06942> (8687)
dedicated
<06942> (8689)
the silver
<03701>
unto the LORD
<03068>
from my hand
<03027>
for my son
<01121>_,
to make
<06213> (8800)
a graven image
<06459>
and a molten image
<04541>_:
now therefore I will restore
<07725> (8686)
it unto thee.
Yet he restored
<07725> (8686)
the money
<03701>
unto his mother
<0517>_;
and his mother
<0517>
took
<03947> (8799)
two hundred
<03967>
[shekels] of silver
<03701>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
them to the founder
<06884> (8802)_,
who made
<06213> (8799)
thereof a graven image
<06459>
and a molten image
<04541>_:
and they were in the house
<01004>
of Micah
<04321>_.
And the man
<0376>
Micah
<04318>
had an house
<01004>
of gods
<0430>_,
and made
<06213> (8799)
an ephod
<0646>_,
and teraphim
<08655>_,
and consecrated
<04390> (8762) <03027>
one
<0259>
of his sons
<01121>_,
who became his priest
<03548>_.
{consecrated: Heb. filled the hand}
In those days
<03117>
[there was] no king
<04428>
in Israel
<03478>_,
[but] every man
<0376>
did
<06213> (8799)
[that which was] right
<03477>
in his own eyes
<05869>_.
And there was a young man
<05288>
out of Bethlehemjudah
<01035> <03063>
of the family
<04940>
of Judah
<03063>_,
who [was] a Levite
<03881>_,
and he sojourned
<01481> (8804)
there.
And the man
<0376>
departed
<03212> (8799)
out of the city
<05892>
from Bethlehemjudah
<01035> <03063>
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
where he could find
<04672> (8799)
[a place]: and he came
<0935> (8799)
to mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>
to the house
<01004>
of Micah
<04318>_,
as he journeyed
<06213> (8800) <01870>_.
{as he...: Heb. in making his way}
And Micah
<04318>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Whence
<0370>
comest
<0935> (8799)
thou? And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, I [am] a Levite
<03881>
of Bethlehemjudah
<01035> <03063>_,
and I go
<01980> (8802)
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
where I may find
<04672> (8799)
[a place].
And Micah
<04318>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Dwell
<03427> (8798)
with me, and be unto me a father
<01>
and a priest
<03548>_,
and I will give
<05414> (8799)
thee ten
<06235>
[shekels] of silver
<03701>
by the year
<03117>_,
and a suit
<06187>
of apparel
<0899>_,
and thy victuals
<04241>_.
So the Levite
<03881>
went in
<03212> (8799)_.
{a suit...: or, a double suit, etc: Heb. an order of garments}
And the Levite
<03881>
was content
<02974> (8686)
to dwell
<03427> (8800)
with the man
<0376>_;
and the young man
<05288>
was unto him as one
<0259>
of his sons
<01121>_.
And Micah
<04318>
consecrated
<04390> (8762) <03027>
the Levite
<03881>_;
and the young man
<05288>
became his priest
<03548>_,
and was in the house
<01004>
of Micah
<04318>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Micah
<04318>_,
Now know
<03045> (8804)
I that the LORD
<03068>
will do me good
<03190> (8686)_,
seeing I have a Levite
<03881>
to [my] priest
<03548>_.
