1 There was a man of the hill country of Ephraim, whose name was Micah. MICAH. Jdg.17.1-13וַיְהִי־אִישׁ מֵהַר־אֶפְרָיִם וּשְׁמֹו מִיכָיְהוּ׃
2 And he said to his mother, "The eleven hundred pieces of silver which were taken from you, about which you uttered a curse, and also spoke it in my ears, behold, the silver is with me; I took it." And his mother said, "Blessed be my son by Yahweh."  וַיֹּאמֶר לְאִמֹּו אֶלֶף וּמֵאָה הַכֶּסֶף אֲשֶׁר לֻקַּח־לָךְ {כ= וְאַתִּי} {ק= וְאַתְּ} אָלִית וְגַם אָמַרְתְּ בְּאָזְנַי הִנֵּה־הַכֶּסֶף אִתִּי אֲנִי לְקַחְתִּיו וַתֹּאמֶר אִמֹּו בָּרוּךְ בְּנִי לַיהוָה׃
3 And he restored the eleven hundred pieces of silver to his mother; and his mother said, "I consecrate the silver to Yahweh from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image; now therefore I will restore it to you."  וַיָּשֶׁב אֶת־אֶלֶף־וּמֵאָה הַכֶּסֶף לְאִמֹּו וַתֹּאמֶר אִמֹּו הַקְדֵּשׁ הִקְדַּשְׁתִּי אֶת־הַכֶּסֶף לַיהוָה מִיָּדִי לִבְנִי לַעֲשֹׂות פֶּסֶל וּמַסֵּכָה וְעַתָּה אֲשִׁיבֶנּוּ לָךְ׃
4 So when he restored the money to his mother, his mother took two hundred pieces of silver, and gave it to the silversmith, who made it into a graven image and a molten image; and it was in the house of Micah.  וַיָּשֶׁב אֶת־הַכֶּסֶף לְאִמֹּו וַתִּקַּח אִמֹּו מָאתַיִם כֶּסֶף וַתִּתְּנֵהוּ לַצֹּורֵף וַיַּעֲשֵׂהוּ פֶּסֶל וּמַסֵּכָה וַיְהִי בְּבֵית מִיכָיְהוּ׃
5 And the man Micah had a shrine, and he made an ephod and teraphim, and installed one of his sons, who became his priest.  וְהָאִישׁ מִיכָה לֹו בֵּית אֱלֹהִים וַיַּעַשׂ אֵפֹוד וּתְרָפִים וַיְמַלֵּא אֶת־יַד אַחַד מִבָּנָיו וַיְהִי־לֹו לְכֹהֵן׃
6 In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.  בַּיָּמִים הָהֵם אֵין מֶלֶךְ בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל אִישׁ הַיָּשָׁר בְּעֵינָיו יַעֲשֶׂה׃ ף
7 Now there was a young man of Bethlehem in Judah, of the family of Judah, who was a Levite; and he sojourned there.  וַיְהִי־נַעַר מִבֵּית לֶחֶם יְהוּדָה מִמִּשְׁפַּחַת יְהוּדָה וְהוּא לֵוִי וְהוּא גָר־שָׁם׃
8 And the man departed from the town of Bethlehem in Judah, to live where he could find a place; and as he journeyed, he came to the hill country of Ephraim to the house of Micah.  וַיֵּלֶךְ הָאִישׁ מֵהָעִיר מִבֵּית לֶחֶם יְהוּדָה לָגוּר בַּאֲשֶׁר יִמְצָא וַיָּבֹא הַר־אֶפְרַיִם עַד־בֵּית מִיכָה לַעֲשֹׂות דַּרְכֹּו׃
9 And Micah said to him, "From where do you come?" And he said to him, "I am a Levite of Bethlehem in Judah, and I am going to sojourn where I may find a place."  וַיֹּאמֶר־לֹו מִיכָה מֵאַיִן תָּבֹוא וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו לֵוִי אָנֹכִי מִבֵּית לֶחֶם יְהוּדָה וְאָנֹכִי הֹלֵךְ לָגוּר בַּאֲשֶׁר אֶמְצָא׃
10 And Micah said to him, "Stay with me, and be to me a father and a priest, and I will give you ten pieces of silver a year, and a suit of apparel, and your living."  וַיֹּאמֶר לֹו מִיכָה שְׁבָה עִמָּדִי וֶהְיֵה־לִי לְאָב וּלְכֹהֵן וְאָנֹכִי אֶתֶּן־לְךָ עֲשֶׂרֶת כֶּסֶף לַיָּמִים וְעֵרֶךְ בְּגָדִים וּמִחְיָתֶךָ וַיֵּלֶךְ הַלֵּוִי׃
11 And the Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the young man became to him like one of his sons.  וַיֹּואֶל הַלֵּוִי לָשֶׁבֶת אֶת־הָאִישׁ וַיְהִי הַנַּעַר לֹו כְּאַחַד מִבָּנָיו׃
12 And Micah installed the Levite, and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah.  וַיְמַלֵּא מִיכָה אֶת־יַד הַלֵּוִי וַיְהִי־לֹו הַנַּעַר לְכֹהֵן וַיְהִי בְּבֵית מִיכָה׃
13 Then Micah said, "Now I know that Yahweh will prosper me, because I have a Levite as priest."  וַיֹּאמֶר מִיכָה עַתָּה יָדַעְתִּי כִּי־יֵיטִיב יְהוָה לִי כִּי הָיָה־לִי הַלֵּוִי לְכֹהֵן׃

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
