CommentaryJudges 17:9 Parallel Commentaries
One day a young Levite, who had been living in Bethlehem in Judah, arrived in that area.
He had left Bethlehem in search of another place to live, and as he traveled, he came to the hill country of Ephraim. He happened to stop at Micah's house as he was traveling through.
"Stay here with me," Micah said, "and you can be a father and priest to me. I will give you ten pieces of silver a year, plus a change of clothes and your food."
