In thoseH1992 daysH3117 there was noH369 kingH4428 in Israel:H3478 and in thoseH1992 daysH3117 the tribeH7626 of the DanitesH1839 soughtH1245 them an inheritanceH5159 to dwellH3427 in; for to that dayH3117 all their inheritanceH5159 had not fallenH5307 to them amongH8432 the tribesH7626 of Israel.H3478
And the childrenH1121 of DanH1835 sentH7971 of their familyH4940 fiveH2568 menH582 H1121 from their coasts,H7098 menH582 H1121 of valor,H2428 from Zorah,H6881 and from Eshtaol,H847 to spyH7270 out the land,H776 and to searchH2713 it; and they saidH559 to them, Go,H3212 searchH2713 the land:H776 who when they cameH935 to mountH2022 Ephraim,H669 to the houseH1004 of Micah,H4318 they lodgedH3885 there.H8033
When they were by the houseH1004 of Micah,H4318 they knewH5234 the voiceH663 of the youngH5288 man the Levite:H3881 and they turnedH5493 in thither,H8033 and saidH559 to him, WhoH4310 broughtH935 you here?H1988 and whatH4100 makeH6213 you in thisH6311 place? and whatH4100 have you here?H6311
And he saidH559 to them, ThusH2090 and thusH2088 dealsH6213 MicahH4318 with me, and has hiredH7936 me, and I am his priest.H3548
And they saidH559 to him, AskH7592 counsel, we prayH4994 you, of God,H430 that we may knowH3045 whether our wayH1870 whichH834 we goH1980 shall be prosperous.H6743
And the priestH3548 saidH559 to them, GoH3212 in peace:H7965 beforeH5227 the LORDH3068 is your wayH1870 whereinH834 you go.H3212
Then the fiveH2568 menH582 departed,H3212 and cameH935 to Laish,H3919 and sawH7200 the peopleH5971 that were therein,H7130 how they dwelledH3427 careless,H983 after the mannerH4941 of the Zidonians,H6722 quietH8252 and secure;H982 and there was noH369 magistrateH3423 H6114 in the land,H776 that might putH3637 them to shameH3637 in any thing;H1697 and they were farH7350 from the Zidonians,H6722 and had noH369 businessH1697 with any man.H120
And they cameH935 to their brothersH251 to ZorahH6881 and Eshtaol:H847 and their brothersH251 saidH559 to them, WhatH4100 sayH559 you?
And they said,H559 Arise,H6965 that we may goH5927 up againstH5921 them: for we have seenH7200 the land,H776 and, behold,H2009 it is veryH3966 good:H2896 and are you still?H2814 be not slothfulH6101 to go,H3212 and to enterH935 to possessH3423 the land.H776
When you go,H935 you shall comeH935 to a peopleH5971 secure,H982 and to a largeH7342 H3027 land:H776 for GodH430 has givenH5414 it into your hands;H3027 a placeH4725 whereH834 there is noH369 wantH4270 of anyH3605 thingH1697 that is in the earth.H776
And there wentH5265 from thereH8033 of the familyH4940 of the Danites,H1839 out of ZorahH6881 and out of Eshtaol,H847 sixH8337 hundredH3967 menH376 appointedH2296 with weaponsH3627 of war.H4421
And they wentH5927 up, and pitchedH2583 in Kirjathjearim,H7157 in Judah:H3063 whyH5921 H3651 they calledH7121 that placeH4725 MahanehdanH4265 to thisH2088 day:H3117 behold,H2009 it is behindH310 Kirjathjearim.H7157
And they passedH5674 thereH8033 to mountH2022 Ephraim,H669 and cameH935 to the houseH1004 of Micah.H4318
Then answeredH6030 the fiveH2568 menH582 that wentH1980 to spyH7270 out the countryH776 of Laish,H3919 and saidH559 to their brothers,H251 Do you knowH3045 that there is in theseH428 housesH1004 an ephod,H646 and teraphim,H8655 and a gravenH6459 image, and a moltenH4541 image? nowH6258 therefore considerH3045 whatH4100 you have to do.H6213
And they turnedH5493 thitherward,H8033 and cameH935 to the houseH1004 of the youngH5288 man the Levite,H3881 even to the houseH1004 of Micah,H4318 and salutedH7592 H7965 him.
And the sixH8337 hundredH3967 menH376 appointedH2296 with their weaponsH3627 of war,H4421 whichH834 were of the childrenH1121 of Dan,H1835 stoodH5324 by the enteringH6607 of the gate.H8179
And the fiveH2568 menH582 that wentH1980 to spyH7270 out the landH776 wentH5927 up, and cameH935 in thither,H8033 and tookH3947 the gravenH6459 image, and the ephod,H646 and the teraphim,H8655 and the moltenH4541 image: and the priestH3548 stoodH5324 in the enteringH6607 of the gateH8179 with the sixH8337 hundredH3967 menH376 that were appointedH2296 with weaponsH3627 of war.H4421
And theseH428 wentH935 into Micah'sH4318 house,H1004 and fetchedH3947 the carvedH6459 image, the ephod,H646 and the teraphim,H8655 and the moltenH4541 image. Then saidH559 the priestH3548 to them, WhatH4100 doH6213 you?
And they saidH559 to him, HoldH2790 your peace,H2790 layH7760 your handH3027 on your mouth,H6310 and goH3212 with us, and be to us a fatherH1 and a priest:H3548 is it betterH2896 for you to be a priestH3548 to the houseH1004 of oneH259 man,H376 orH176 that you be a priestH3548 to a tribeH7626 and a familyH4940 in Israel?H3478
And the priest'sH3548 heartH3820 was glad,H3190 and he tookH3947 the ephod,H646 and the teraphim,H8655 and the gravenH6459 image, and wentH935 in the middleH7130 of the people.H5971
So they turnedH6437 and departed,H3212 and putH7760 the littleH2945 ones and the cattleH4735 and the carriageH3520 beforeH6440 them.
And when they were a goodH7368 way from the houseH1004 of Micah,H4318 the menH582 that were in the housesH1004 nearH5973 to Micah'sH4318 houseH1004 were gatheredH2199 together, and overtookH1692 the childrenH1121 of Dan.H1835
And they criedH7121 to the childrenH1121 of Dan.H1835 And they turnedH5437 their faces,H6440 and saidH559 to Micah,H4318 WhatH4100 ails you, that you comeH2199 with such a company?H2199
And he said,H559 You have takenH3947 away my godsH430 whichH834 I made,H6213 and the priest,H3548 and you are goneH3212 away: and whatH4100 have I more?H5750 and whatH4100 is thisH2088 that you sayH559 to me, WhatH4100 ails you?
And the childrenH1121 of DanH1835 saidH559 to him, Let not your voiceH6963 be heardH8085 among us, lestH6435 angryH4751 H5315 fellowsH582 runH6293 on you, and you loseH622 your life,H5315 with the livesH5315 of your household.H1004
And the childrenH1121 of DanH1835 wentH3212 their way:H1870 and when MicahH4318 sawH7200 that they were too strongH2389 for him, he turnedH6437 and wentH7725 backH7725 to his house.H1004
And they tookH3947 the thingsH1697 whichH834 MicahH4318 had made,H6213 and the priestH3548 whichH834 he had,H1961 and cameH935 to Laish,H3919 to a peopleH5971 that were at quietH8252 and secure:H982 and they smoteH5221 them with the edgeH6310 of the sword,H2719 and burntH8313 the cityH5892 with fire.H784
And there was noH369 deliverer,H5337 becauseH3588 it was farH7350 from Zidon,H6721 and they had noH369 businessH1697 with any man;H120 and it was in the valleyH6010 that lies by Bethrehob.H1050 And they builtH1129 a city,H5892 and dwelledH3427 therein.
And they calledH7121 the nameH8034 of the cityH5892 Dan,H1835 after the nameH8034 of DanH1835 their father,H1 whoH834 was bornH3205 to Israel:H3478 however,H199 the nameH8034 of the cityH5892 was LaishH3919 at the first.H7223
And the childrenH1121 of DanH1835 setH6965 up the gravenH6459 image: and Jonathan,H3129 the sonH1121 of Gershom,H1648 the sonH1121 of Manasseh,H4519 he and his sonsH1121 were priestsH3548 to the tribeH7626 of DanH1835 untilH5704 the dayH3117 of the captivityH1546 of the land.H776
And they setH7760 them up Micah'sH4318 gravenH6459 image, whichH834 he made,H6213 allH3605 the time that the houseH1004 of GodH430 was in Shiloh.H7887
