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 in 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 them 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 them into a graven image and a molten image, and they were in the house of Micah.
5 And the man Micah had a 2shrine * and he made an 3ephod and 4household idols and consecrated * 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.
