And the children of Danwent their way: and when Micahsaw that they were too strong for him, he turned and went back unto his house.27
And they took the things which Micah had made , and the priest which he had, and came unto Laish, unto a people that were at quiet and secure : and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and burnt the city with fire.28
And there was no deliverer , because it was far from Zidon, and they had no business with any man; and it was in the valley that lieth by Bethrehob. And they built a city, and dwelt therein.
And they called the name of the cityDan, after the name of Dan their father, who was born unto Israel:howbeit the name of the city was Laish at the first.30
And the children of Dan set up the graven image: and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Manasseh, he and his sons were priests to the tribe of Dan until the day of the captivity of the land.31
And they set them upMicah's graven image, which he made , all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh.
