Judges 18:17-20

Context
18:17 The five men who had gone to spy out the land broke in and stole 1  the carved image, the ephod, the personal idols, and the metal image, while the priest was standing at the entrance to the gate with the six hundred fully armed men. 2  18:18 When these men broke into Micah’s house and stole 3  the carved image, the ephod, the personal idols, and the metal image, the priest said to them, “What are you doing?” 18:19 They said to him, “Shut up! Put your hand over your mouth and come with us! You can be our adviser 4  and priest. Wouldn’t it be better to be a priest for a whole Israelite tribe than for just one man’s family?” 5  18:20 The priest was happy. He took the ephod, the personal idols, and the carved image and joined the group. 6
