1 In the highlands of Ephraim there was a man called Micayehu.
Josh 15:9  Josh 17:14-18  Judg 10:1  Judg 18:2 

2 He said to his mother, 'The eleven hundred silver shekels which were taken from you and concerning which you uttered a curse, having said in my hearing . . . Look, I have got that silver. I was the one who took it.' His mother said, 'May Yahweh bless my boy!'
Neh 13:25  Ruth 3:10  1Cor 16:22  1Sam 14:24  1Sam 14:28  1Sam 15:13  1Sam 23:21 

3 He gave the eleven hundred shekels back to his mother, who said, 'I have indeed vowed to give this silver to Yahweh for my son, to have a statue carved and an idol cast in metal, but now I should like to give it back to you.' He, however, returned the money to his mother.
Exod 20:4  Exod 20:23  Lev 19:4  Deut 12:3  Exod 34:17  Hab 2:18-19  Isa 40:18-25 

4 His mother then took two hundred silver shekels and gave them to the metalworker. With them, he carved a statue (and cast an idol in metal) which was put in Micayehu's house.
Isa 46:6-7  Jer 10:9-10 

5 This man Micah owned a shrine; he made an ephod and some domestic images, and installed one of his sons to be his priest.
Gen 31:19  Judg 8:27  Judg 18:14  Gen 31:30  Judg 18:24  Exod 28:15  Exod 29:9 

6 In those days there was no king in Israel, and everyone did as he saw fit.
Judg 21:25  Deut 12:8  Judg 18:1  Judg 19:1  Eccl 11:9  Prov 12:15  Prov 14:12 

7 There was a young man of Bethlehem in Judah, of the clan of Judah, who was a Levite and resided there as a stranger.
Matt 2:1  Mic 5:2  Ruth 1:1-2  Matt 2:5-6  Gen 35:19  Josh 19:15  Judg 19:1-2 

8 This man left the town of Bethlehem in Judah to settle wherever he could find a home. On his travels he came to the highlands of Ephraim and to Micah's house.
Josh 24:33  Judg 17:11  Neh 13:10-11 

9 Micah asked him, 'Where do you come from?' The other replied, 'I am a Levite from Bethlehem in Judah. I am travelling, and am going to settle wherever I can find a home.'

10 Micah said to him, 'Stay here with me; be my father and priest and I shall give you ten silver shekels a year, and clothing and food.'
1Pet 5:2  1Sam 2:36  1Tim 6:10  2Kgs 6:21  2Kgs 8:8-9  2Kgs 13:14  Ezek 13:19 

11 The Levite agreed to remain in the man's house, and the young man became like one of his sons to him.

12 Micah installed the Levite; the young man became Micah's priest and stayed in his house.
Judg 18:30  1Kgs 12:31  1Kgs 13:33-34  Num 16:5  Num 16:8-10 

13 And Micah said, 'Now I know that Yahweh will treat me well, since I have this Levite as priest.'
