Judges 18:30-31

Context
18:30 The Danites worshiped 1  the carved image. Jonathan, descendant 2  of Gershom, son of Moses, 3  and his descendants 4  served as priests for the tribe of Dan until the time of the exile. 18:31 They worshiped 5  Micah’s carved image 6  the whole time God’s authorized shrine 7  was in Shiloh.

1 tn Heb “erected for themselves.”

2 tn Heb “son.”

3 tc Several ancient textual witnesses, including some LXX mss and the Vulgate, support the reading “Moses” (מֹשֶׁה, mosheh) here. Many Hebrew mss have a nun (נ) suspended above the name between the first two letters (מנשׁה), suggesting the name Manasseh (מְנַשֶּׁה, mÿnasheh). This is probably a scribal attempt to protect Moses’ reputation. For discussion, see G. F. Moore, Judges (ICC), 401-2.

4 tn Heb “sons.”

5 tn Heb “they set up for themselves.”

6 tn Heb “the carved image that Micah had made.”

7 tn Heb “the house of God.”
