Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993
|And there was a man of the hills of Ephraim, and his name was Micah.
|And he said to his mother, The eleven hundred pieces of silver which were taken from you, and you uttered a curse, even also speaking in my ear; behold, the silver is with me. I have taken it. And his mother said, Blessed be my son by Jehovah.
|And he gave back the eleven hundred silver pieces to his mother. And his mother said, I have wholly consecrated the silver to Jehovah from my hand for my son, to make a graven image and a molten image. And now, I am returning it to you.
|And he returned the silver to his mother. And his mother took two hundred silver pieces and gave them to a refiner. And he made it a graven image, and a molten image. And it was in Micah's house.
|And the man Micah had a house of gods. And he made an ephod, and household idols, and consecrated one of his sons And he was a priest for him.
|And in those days there was no king in Israel; each man did the right in his own eyes.
|And there was a young man of Bethlehem in Judah, of the family of Judah; and he was a Levite. And he resided there.
|And the man went out of the city, out of Bethlehem-judah, to live where he might find a place. And he came to the hills of Ephraim, to the house of Micah, to work his way.
|And Micah said to him, From where do you come? And he said to him, I am a Levite of Bethlehemjudah, and I am going to live where I may find a place.
|And Micah said to him, Live with me, and be a father and a priest to me. I will give you ten silver pieces for the days, and an order of garments, and your upkeep. And the Levite went in.
|And the Levite was willing to live with the man, and the young man was to him as one of his sons.
|And Micah consecrated the hand of the Levite and the young man was a priest to him; and he was in Micah's house.
|And Micah said, Now I know that Jehovah will do me good, for the Levite is a priest to me.
