Judges

MICAH.  Jdg.17.1-13

1There was a man of the hill country of Ephraim, whose name was Micah. 2And 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." 3And 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." 4So 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. 5And the man Micah had a shrine, and he made an ephod and teraphim, and installed one of his sons, who became his priest. 6In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.

7Now there was a young man of Bethlehem in Judah, of the family of Judah, who was a Levite; and he sojourned there. 8And 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. 9And 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." 10And 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." 11And the Levite was content to dwell with the man; and the young man became to him like one of his sons. 12And Micah installed the Levite, and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah. 13Then Micah said, "Now I know that Yahweh will prosper me, because I have a Levite as priest."

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard 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 used the name 'Yahweh'.
(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.
