Danites Take Micah's Idols
24He said, "You have taken away my gods which I made, and the priest, and have gone away, and what do I have besides?

(25) Lest angry fellows run upon thee.--Literally, lest men bitter of soul fall upon thee. (Comp. Judges 8:21; Judges 15:12; 2Samuel 17:8, "chafed in their minds.")

Thou lose thy life.--Literally, thou gather thy life, as in Psalm 26:9.

Verse 25. - Run upon thee. Rather, run, or fall, upon you; it is the plural pronoun, comprehending the whole party. The argument of the Danites was the argument of the stronger. And the children of Dan said unto him, let not thy voice be heard among us,.... Complaining of us as having done an unjust thing, charging and reproaching us with theft and sacrilege, insisting upon a restoration of the things taken, and abusing with odious names and characters:

lest angry fellows run upon thee: lest men of bitter and passionate spirits, provoked by ill language given them, should draw their swords and fall upon thee:

and thou lose thy life, and the life of thy household; the life of himself, his family, servants, tenants, and neighbours with him, which ought to have been more precious and valuable than his gods; of which there was great danger in demanding his gods, which by this they let him know they would not part with. 17:7-13 Micah thought it was a sign of God's favour to him and his images, that a Levite should come to his door. Thus those who please themselves with their own delusions, if Providence unexpectedly bring any thing to their hands that further them in their evil way, are apt from thence to think that God is pleased with them.
