Judges 17


17:1 And there was a man of mount Ephraim, whose name [was]
 Micah.
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.
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.
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.
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.
17:6 In those days [there was] no king in Israel, [but] every
 man did [that which was] right in his own eyes.
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.
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.
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].
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.
17:11 And the Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the
 young man was to him as one of his sons.
17:12 And Micah consecrated the Levite; and the young man became
 his priest, and was in the house of Micah.
17:13 Then said Micah, Now I know that the LORD will do me good,
 seeing I have a Levite for [my] priest.
