Levite’s Consecration by Micah – Judges 17

Judges 17:1 And there was a man of mount Ephraim, whose  name was Micah. 

Judges 17:2 And he said unto his mother,  The eleven hundred shekels of silver that were taken from  thee, about which thou cursedst, and spakest of also in mine  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 unto the LORD from my hand for my son, to make a  graven image and a molten image: now therefore I will  restore it unto thee. 

Judges 17:4 Yet he restored the money unto  his mother; and his mother took two hundred shekels of  silver, and gave them to the founder, who made thereof a  graven image and a molten image: and they were in the  house of Micah. 

Judges 17:5 And the man Micah had an 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.   

Judges 17:7 And there was a young man out of  Bethlehem 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 Bethlehem 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 unto  him, Whence comest thou? And he said unto him, I am a  Levite of Bethlehem judah, and I go to sojourn where I may  find a place. 

Judges 17:10 And Micah said unto him, Dwell  with me, and be unto 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 unto 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 know I that the LORD will do me good,  seeing I have a Levite to my priest.
