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.
