Chapter 18

  1. 1. In those days
    H3117
    there was no king
    H4428
    in Israel:
    H3478
    and in those days
    H3117
    the tribe
    H7626
    of the Danites
    H1839
    sought
    H1245
    them an inheritance
    H5159
    to dwell in;
    H3427
    for unto that day
    H3117
    all their inheritance
    H5159
    had not fallen
    H5307
    unto them among
    H8432
    the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel.
    H3478
  2. 2. And the children
    H1121
    of Dan
    H1835
    sent
    H7971
    of their family
    H4940
    five
    H2568
    men
    H582
    from their coasts,
    H7098
    men
    H1121
    of valour,
    H2428
    from Zorah,
    H6881
    and from Eshtaol,
    H847
    to spy
    H7270
    out the land,
    H776
    and to search
    H2713
    it; and they said
    H559
    unto them, Go,
    H3212
    search
    H2713
    the land:
    H776
    who when they came
    H935
    to mount
    H2022
    Ephraim,
    H669
    to the house
    H1004
    of Micah,
    H4318
    they lodged
    H3885
    there.
  3. 3. When they were by the house
    H1004
    of Micah,
    H4318
    they knew
    H5234
    the voice
    H6963
    of the young man
    H5288
    the Levite:
    H3881
    and they turned in
    H5493
    thither, and said
    H559
    unto him, Who brought
    H935
    thee hither?
    H1988
    and what makest
    H6213
    thou in this place? and what hast thou here?
  4. 4. And he said
    H559
    unto them, Thus
    H2090
    and thus
    H2090
    dealeth
    H6213
    Micah
    H4318
    with me, and hath hired
    H7936
    me, and I am his priest.
    H3548
  5. 5. And they said
    H559
    unto him, Ask counsel,
    H7592
    we pray thee, of God,
    H430
    that we may know
    H3045
    whether our way
    H1870
    which we go
    H1980
    shall be prosperous.
    H6743
  6. 6. And the priest
    H3548
    said
    H559
    unto them, Go
    H3212
    in peace:
    H7965
    before
    H5227
    the LORD
    H3068
    is your way
    H1870
    wherein ye go.
    H3212
  7. 7. Then the five
    H2568
    men
    H582
    departed,
    H3212
    and came
    H935
    to Laish,
    H3919
    and saw
    H7200
    the people
    H5971
    that were therein,
    H7130
    how they dwelt
    H3427
    careless,
    H983
    after the manner
    H4941
    of the Zidonians,
    H6722
    quiet
    H8252
    and secure;
    H982
    and there was no magistrate
    H3423
    H6114
    in the land,
    H776
    that might put them to shame
    H3637
    in any thing;
    H1697
    and they were far
    H7350
    from the Zidonians,
    H6722
    and had no business
    H1697
    with any man.
    H120
  8. 8. And they came
    H935
    unto their brethren
    H251
    to Zorah
    H6881
    and Eshtaol:
    H847
    and their brethren
    H251
    said
    H559
    unto them, What say ye?
  9. 9. And they said,
    H559
    Arise,
    H6965
    that we may go up
    H5927
    against them: for we have seen
    H7200
    the land,
    H776
    and, behold, it is very
    H3966
    good:
    H2896
    and are ye still?
    H2814
    be not slothful
    H6101
    to go,
    H3212
    and to enter
    H935
    to possess
    H3423
    the land.
    H776
  10. 10. When ye go,
    H935
    ye shall come
    H935
    unto a people
    H5971
    secure,
    H982
    and to a large
    H7342
    land:
    H776
    for God
    H430
    hath given
    H5414
    it into your hands;
    H3027
    a place
    H4725
    where there is no want
    H4270
    of any thing
    H1697
    that is in the earth.
    H776
  11. 11. And there went
    H5265
    from thence of the family
    H4940
    of the Danites,
    H1839
    out of Zorah
    H6881
    and out of Eshtaol,
    H847
    six
    H8337
    hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    appointed
    H2296
    with weapons
    H3627
    of war.
    H4421
  12. 12. And they went up,
    H5927
    and pitched
    H2583
    in Kirjathjearim,
    H7157
    in Judah:
    H3063
    wherefore they called
    H7121
    that place
    H4725
    Mahanehdan
    H4265
    unto this day:
    H3117
    behold, it is behind
    H310
    Kirjathjearim.
    H7157
  13. 13. And they passed
    H5674
    thence unto mount
    H2022
    Ephraim,
    H669
    and came
    H935
    unto the house
    H1004
    of Micah.
    H4318
  14. 14. Then answered
    H6030
    the five
    H2568
    men
    H582
    that went
    H1980
    to spy out
    H7270
    the country
    H776
    of Laish,
    H3919
    and said
    H559
    unto their brethren,
    H251
    Do ye know
    H3045
    that there is
    H3426
    in these houses
    H1004
    an ephod,
    H646
    and teraphim,
    H8655
    and a graven image,
    H6459
    and a molten image?
    H4541
    now therefore consider
    H3045
    what ye have to do.
    H6213
  15. 15. And they turned
    H5493
    thitherward, and came
    H935
    to the house
    H1004
    of the young man
    H5288
    the Levite,
    H3881
    even unto the house
    H1004
    of Micah,
    H4318
    and saluted
    H7592
    H7965
    him.
  16. 16. And the six
    H8337
    hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    appointed
    H2296
    with their weapons
    H3627
    of war,
    H4421
    which were of the children
    H1121
    of Dan,
    H1835
    stood
    H5324
    by the entering
    H6607
    of the gate.
    H8179
  17. 17. And the five
    H2568
    men
    H582
    that went
    H1980
    to spy out
    H7270
    the land
    H776
    went up,
    H5927
    and came in
    H935
    thither, and took
    H3947
    the graven image,
    H6459
    and the ephod,
    H646
    and the teraphim,
    H8655
    and the molten image:
    H4541
    and the priest
    H3548
    stood
    H5324
    in the entering
    H6607
    of the gate
    H8179
    with the six
    H8337
    hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    that were appointed
    H2296
    with weapons
    H3627
    of war.
    H4421
  18. 18. And these went
    H935
    into Micah's
    H4318
    house,
    H1004
    and fetched
    H3947
    the carved image,
    H6459
    the ephod,
    H646
    and the teraphim,
    H8655
    and the molten image.
    H4541
    Then said
    H559
    the priest
    H3548
    unto them, What do
    H6213
    ye?
  19. 19. And they said
    H559
    unto him, Hold thy peace,
    H2790
    lay
    H7760
    thine hand
    H3027
    upon thy mouth,
    H6310
    and go
    H3212
    with us, and be to us
    H1961
    a father
    H1
    and a priest:
    H3548
    is it better
    H2896
    for thee to be a priest
    H3548
    unto the house
    H1004
    of one
    H259
    man,
    H376
    or that thou be a priest
    H3548
    unto a tribe
    H7626
    and a family
    H4940
    in Israel?
    H3478
  20. 20. And the priest's
    H3548
    heart
    H3820
    was glad,
    H3190
    and he took
    H3947
    the ephod,
    H646
    and the teraphim,
    H8655
    and the graven image,
    H6459
    and went in
    H935
    the midst
    H7130
    of the people.
    H5971
  21. 21. So they turned
    H6437
    and departed,
    H3212
    and put
    H7760
    the little ones
    H2945
    and the cattle
    H4735
    and the carriage
    H3520
    before
    H6440
    them.
  22. 22. And when they were a good way
    H7368
    from the house
    H1004
    of Micah,
    H4318
    the men
    H582
    that were in the houses
    H1004
    near to Micah's
    H4318
    house
    H1004
    were gathered together,
    H2199
    and overtook
    H1692
    the children
    H1121
    of Dan.
    H1835
  23. 23. And they cried
    H7121
    unto the children
    H1121
    of Dan.
    H1835
    And they turned
    H5437
    their faces,
    H6440
    and said
    H559
    unto Micah,
    H4318
    What aileth thee, that thou comest with such a company?
    H2199
  24. 24. And he said,
    H559
    Ye have taken away
    H3947
    my gods
    H430
    which I made,
    H6213
    and the priest,
    H3548
    and ye are gone away:
    H3212
    and what have I more? and what is this that ye say
    H559
    unto me, What aileth thee?
  25. 25. And the children
    H1121
    of Dan
    H1835
    said
    H559
    unto him, Let not thy voice
    H6963
    be heard
    H8085
    among us, lest angry
    H5315
    H4751
    fellows
    H582
    run
    H6293
    upon thee, and thou lose
    H622
    thy life,
    H5315
    with the lives
    H5315
    of thy household.
    H1004
  26. 26. And the children
    H1121
    of Dan
    H1835
    went
    H3212
    their way:
    H1870
    and when Micah
    H4318
    saw
    H7200
    that they were too strong
    H2389
    for him, he turned
    H6437
    and went back
    H7725
    unto his house.
    H1004
  27. 27. And they took
    H3947
    the things which Micah
    H4318
    had made,
    H6213
    and the priest
    H3548
    which he had, and came
    H935
    unto Laish,
    H3919
    unto a people
    H5971
    that were at quiet
    H8252
    and secure:
    H982
    and they smote
    H5221
    them with the edge
    H6310
    of the sword,
    H2719
    and burnt
    H8313
    the city
    H5892
    with fire.
    H784
  28. 28. And there was no deliverer,
    H5337
    because it was far
    H7350
    from Zidon,
    H6721
    and they had no business
    H1697
    with any man;
    H120
    and it was in the valley
    H6010
    that lieth by Bethrehob.
    H1050
    And they built
    H1129
    a city,
    H5892
    and dwelt
    H3427
    therein.
  29. 29. And they called
    H7121
    the name
    H8034
    of the city
    H5892
    Dan,
    H1835
    after the name
    H8034
    of Dan
    H1835
    their father,
    H1
    who was born
    H3205
    unto Israel:
    H3478
    howbeit
    H199
    the name
    H8034
    of the city
    H5892
    was Laish
    H3919
    at the first.
    H7223
  30. 30. And the children
    H1121
    of Dan
    H1835
    set up
    H6965
    the graven image:
    H6459
    and Jonathan,
    H3083
    the son
    H1121
    of Gershom,
    H1647
    the son
    H1121
    of Manasseh,
    H4519
    he and his sons
    H1121
    were priests
    H3548
    to the tribe
    H7626
    of Dan
    H1839
    until the day
    H3117
    of the captivity
    H1540
    of the land.
    H776
  31. 31. And they set them up
    H7760
    Micah's
    H4318
    graven image,
    H6459
    which he made,
    H6213
    all the time
    H3117
    that the house
    H1004
    of God
    H430
    was in Shiloh.
