Micah's Idolatry

1 Now there was a man of the hill country of Ephraim whose name was Micah. 2 He said to his mother, "The eleven hundred pieces of silver which were taken from you, about which you uttered a curse ain my hearing, behold, the silver is with me; I took it." And his mother said, "Blessed be my son by the LORD." 3 He then returned the eleven hundred pieces of silver to his mother, and his mother said, "I wholly dedicate the silver from my hand to the LORD for my son 1to make a graven image and a molten image; now therefore, I will return bthem to you." 4 So when he returned the silver to his mother, his mother took two hundred pieces of silver and gave them to the silversmith who made cthem into a graven image and a molten image, and dthey were in the house of Micah. 5 And the man Micah had a e2shrine and he made an 3ephod and f4household idols and gconsecrated one of his sons, 5that he might become his priest. 6 In those days 6there was no king in Israel; 7every man did what was right in his own eyes.
