Judges 17

Of the money that Micah first stole, then restored, his mother maketh images,

Judges 17:1 And there was a man of mount Ephraim, whose name [was] Micah. Judges 17:2 And he said to his mother, The eleven hundred [shekels] of silver that were taken from thee, about which thou didst curse, and speak of also in my ears, behold, the silver [is] with me; I took it. And his mother said, Blessed [be thou] of the LORD, my son. Judges 17:3 And when he had restored the eleven hundred [shekels] of silver to his mother, his mother said, I had wholly dedicated the silver to the LORD from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image: now therefore I will restore it to thee. Judges 17:4 Yet he restored the money to his mother; and his mother took two hundred [shekels] of silver, and gave them to the founder, who made of it a graven image and a molten image: and they were in the house of Micah.

and he ornaments for them.

Judges 17:5 And the man Micah had a house of gods, and made an ephod, and teraphim, and consecrated one of his sons, who became his priest. Judges 17:6 In those days [there was] no king in Israel, [but] every man did [that which was] right in his own eyes.

He hireth a Levite to be his priest.

Judges 17:7 And there was a young man out of Beth-lehem-judah of the family of Judah, who [was] a Levite, and he sojourned there. Judges 17:8 And the man departed out of the city from Beth-lehem-judah, to sojourn where he could find [a place]: and he came to mount Ephraim to the house of Micah, as he journeyed. Judges 17:9 And Micah said to him, Whence comest thou? And he said to him, I [am] a Levite of Beth-lehem-judah, and I go to sojourn where I may find [a place]. Judges 17:10 And Micah said to him, Dwell with me, and be to me a father and a priest, and I will give thee ten [shekels] of silver by the year, and a suit of apparel, and thy victuals. So the Levite went in. Judges 17:11 And the Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the young man was to him as one of his sons. Judges 17:12 And Micah consecrated the Levite; and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah. Judges 17:13 Then said Micah, Now I know that the LORD will do me good, seeing I have a Levite for [my] priest.
