Micah and the Levite

17There was a man in the hill country of Ephraim whose name was Micah.H376H2022H669H8034H4321 2He said to his mother, "The eleven hundred pieces of silver that were taken from you, about which you uttered a curse, and even spoke it in my hearing,—that silver is in my possession; I took it; but now I will return it to you." And his mother said, "May my son be blessed by the LORD!"H559H517H505H3967H3701H3947H422H559H241H3701H3947H517H559H1288H3068H1121 3Then he returned the eleven hundred pieces of silver to his mother; and his mother said, "I consecrate the silver to the LORD from my hand for my son, to make an idol of cast metal."H7725H505H3967H3701H517H517H559H6942H6942H3701H3068H3027H1121H6213H6459H4541H7725 4So when he returned the money to his mother, his mother took two hundred pieces of silver, and gave it to the silversmith, who made it into an idol of cast metal; and it was in the house of Micah.H7725H3701H517H517H3947H3967H3701H5414H6884H6213H6459H4541H1004H4321 5This man Micah had a shrine, and he made an ephod and teraphim, and installed one of his sons, who became his priest.H376H4318H1004H430H6213H646H8655H4390H3027H259H1121H3548 6In those days there was no king in Israel; all the people did what was right in their own eyes.H3117H4428H3478H376H6213H3477H5869 7Now there was a young man of Bethlehem in Judah, of the clan of Judah. He was a Levite residing there.H5288H1035H3063H4940H3063H3881H1481 8This man left the town of Bethlehem in Judah, to live wherever he could find a place. He came to the house of Micah in the hill country of Ephraim to carry on his work.H376H3212H5892H1035H3063H1481H4672H935H2022H669H1004H4318H6213H1870 9Micah said to him, "From where do you come?" He replied, "I am a Levite of Bethlehem in Judah, and I am going to live wherever I can find a place."H4318H559H370H935H559H3881H1035H3063H1980H1481H4672 10Then Micah said to him, "Stay with me, and be to me a father and a priest, and I will give you ten pieces of silver a year, a set of clothes, and your living."H4318H559H3427H1H3548H5414H6235H3701H3117H6187H899H4241H3881H3212 11The Levite agreed to stay with the man; and the young man became to him like one of his sons.H3881H2974H3427H376H5288H259H1121 12So Micah installed the Levite, and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah.H4318H4390H3027H3881H5288H3548H1004H4318 13Then Micah said, "Now I know that the LORD will prosper me, because the Levite has become my priest."H559H4318H3045H3068H3190H3881H3548
