17:1 There was a man of the hill-country of Ephraim, whose name was Micah.
17:2 He said to his mother, The eleven hundred [pieces] of silver that were taken from you, about which you did utter a curse, and did also speak it in my ears, behold, the silver is with me; I took it. His mother said, Blessed be my son of Yahweh.
17:3 He restored the eleven hundred [pieces] of silver to his mother; and his mother said, I most assuredly dedicate the silver to Yahweh from my hand for my son, to make an engraved image and a molten image: now therefore I will restore it to you.
17:4 When he restored the money to his mother, his mother took two hundred [pieces] of silver, and gave them to the founder, who made of it an engraved image and a molten image: and it was in the house of Micah.
17:5 The man Micah had a house of gods, and he 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: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
17:9 Micah said to him, Whence come you? He said to him, I am a Levite of Beth-lehem-judah, and I go to sojourn where I may find [a place].
17:11 The Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the young man was to him as one of his sons.
17:12 Micah consecrated the Levite, and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah.
17:13 Then said Micah, Now know I that Yahweh will do me good, seeing I have a Levite to my priest.
