And they cried unto the children of Dan
When they had got pretty near them, and in their hearing, they called to them aloud, and desired they would stop, having something to say to them:
and they turned their faces;
that is, the Danites turned and looked at them, and stopped to hear what they had to say to them; these were they who were in the rear in marching:
and said unto Micah;
who was at the head of them:
what aileth thee that thou comest with such a company?
as if he intended to attack them in an hostile way, and therefore asks what should be the occasion of it? what affront had been given him, what injury had been done him, that had provoked him to come out and follow them in such a manner?
