And there was a manH376 of mountH2022 Ephraim,H669 whose nameH8034 was Micah.H4319
And he saidH559 to his mother,H517 The elevenH505 H3967 hundredH3967 shekels of silverH3701 that were takenH3947 from you, about which you cursed,H422 and spokeH559 of alsoH1571 in my ears,H241 behold,H2009 the silverH3701 is with me; I tookH3947 it. And his motherH517 said,H559 BlessedH1288 be you of the LORD,H3068 my son.H1121
And when he had restoredH7725 the elevenH505 H3967 hundredH3967 shekels of silverH3701 to his mother,H517 his motherH517 said,H559 I had whollyH6942 dedicatedH6942 the silverH3701 to the LORDH3068 from my handH3027 for my son,H1121 to makeH6213 a gravenH6459 image and a moltenH4541 image: nowH6258 therefore I will restoreH7725 it to you.
Yet he restoredH7725 the moneyH3701 to his mother;H517 and his motherH517 tookH3947 two hundredH3967 shekels of silver,H3701 and gaveH5414 them to the founder,H6884 who madeH6213 thereof a gravenH6459 image and a moltenH4541 image: and they were in the houseH1004 of Micah.H4319
And the manH376 MicahH4318 had an houseH1004 of gods,H430 and madeH6213 an ephod,H646 and teraphim,H8655 and consecratedH4390 H3027 oneH259 of his sons,H1121 who becameH1961 his priest.H3548
In thoseH1992 daysH3117 there was noH369 kingH4428 in Israel,H3478 but every manH376 didH6213 that which was rightH3477 in his own eyes.H5869
And there was a youngH5288 man out of BethlehemjudahH1035 of the familyH4940 of Judah,H3063 whoH1931 was a Levite,H3881 and he sojournedH1481 there.H8033
And the manH376 departedH3212 out of the cityH5892 from BethlehemjudahH1035 to sojournH1481 whereH834 he could findH4672 a place: and he cameH935 to mountH2022 EphraimH669 to the houseH1004 of Micah,H4318 as he journeyed.H6213 H1870
And MicahH4319 saidH559 to him, From whereH370 comeH935 you? And he saidH559 to him, I am a LeviteH3881 of Bethlehemjudah,H1035 and I goH1980 to sojournH1481 whereH834 I may findH4672 a place.
And MicahH4319 saidH559 to him, DwellH3427 with me, and be to me a fatherH1 and a priest,H3548 and I will giveH5414 you tenH6235 shekels of silverH3701 by the year,H3117 and a suitH6187 of apparel,H899 and your victuals.H4241 So the LeviteH3881 wentH3212 in.
And the LeviteH3881 was contentH2974 to dwellH3427 with the man;H376 and the youngH5288 man was to him as oneH259 of his sons.H1121
And MicahH4318 consecratedH3027 the Levite;H3881 and the youngH5288 man becameH1961 his priest,H3548 and was in the houseH1004 of Micah.H4318
Then saidH559 Micah,H4318 NowH6258 knowH3045 I that the LORDH3068 will do me good,H3190 seeingH3588 I haveH1961 a LeviteH3881 to my priest.H3548
