Treasury of Scripture

And the children of Dan went their way: and when Micah saw that they were too strong for him, he turned and went back to his house.









Verse 26. - The verse tells us what the two parties did, but not in the Order in which an English writer would express it; for no doubt the Danites, encumbered with their women, and children, and baggage, did not go on their way till Micah and his party had turned back, though in English the contrary order is rather implied. The Hebrew merely puts the actions side by side, and leaves the order to be inferred.
