(22) A good way from the house of Micah.--It took some time to raise the alarm and collect a sufficient force. The Beth-Micah was probably strong enough to resist any ordinary robbers, but no one could have expected a raid of 600 men. Yet they would easily overtake the Danites, because their march was delayed and encumbered with women, children, and cattle.

Were gathered together.--See Judges 6:34.

Verse 22. - The houses near to Micah's house. See ver. 14, note. Year to, the same Hebrew word as is rendered by in ver. 3, where see note.
