Judges 18 Text (WEB)
  1. In those days there was no king in Israel: and in those days the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance to dwell in; for to that day [their] inheritance had not fallen to them among the tribes of Israel.
  2. The children of Dan sent of their family five men from their whole number, men of valor, from Zorah, and from Eshtaol, to spy out the land, and to search it; and they said to them, "Go, explore the land!" They came to the hill country of Ephraim, to the house of Micah, and lodged there.
  3. When they were by the house of Micah, they knew the voice of the young man the Levite; and they turned aside there, and said to him, "Who brought you here? What do you do in this place? What do you have here?"
  4. He said to them, "Thus and thus has Micah dealt with me, and he has hired me, and I am become his priest."
  5. They said to him, "Please ask counsel of God, that we may know whether our way which we go shall be prosperous."
  6. The priest said to them, "Go in peace. Your way in which you go is before Yahweh."
  7. Then the five men departed, and came to Laish, and saw the people who were therein, how they lived in security, in the way of the Sidonians, quiet and secure; for there was none in the land, possessing authority, that might put [them] to shame in anything, and they were far from the Sidonians, and had no dealings with any man.
  8. They came to their brothers to Zorah and Eshtaol: and their brothers said to them, "What do you say?"
  9. They said, "Arise, and let us go up against them; for we have seen the land, and behold, it is very good. Do you stand still? Don't be slothful to go and to enter in to possess the land.
  10. When you go, you shall come to a secure people, and the land is large; for God has given it into your hand, a place where there is no want of anything that is in the earth."
  11. There set forth from there of the family of the Danites, out of Zorah and out of Eshtaol, six hundred men girt with weapons of war.
  12. They went up, and encamped in Kiriath Jearim, in Judah: therefore they called that place Mahaneh Dan, to this day; behold, it is behind Kiriath Jearim.
  13. They passed there to the hill country of Ephraim, and came to the house of Micah.
  14. Then the five men who went to spy out the country of Laish answered, and said to their brothers, "Do you know that there is in these houses an ephod, and teraphim, and an engraved image, and a molten image? Now therefore consider what you have to do."
  15. They turned aside there, and came to the house of the young man the Levite, even to the house of Micah, and asked him of his welfare.
  16. The six hundred men girt with their weapons of war, who were of the children of Dan, stood by the entrance of the gate.
  17. The five men who went to spy out the land went up, and came in there, and took the engraved image, and the ephod, and the teraphim, and the molten image: and the priest stood by the entrance of the gate with the six hundred men girt with weapons of war.
  18. When these went into Micah's house, and fetched the engraved image, the ephod, and the teraphim, and the molten image, the priest said to them, "What are you doing?"
  19. They said to him, "Hold your peace, put your hand on your mouth, and go with us, and be to us a father and a priest. Is it better for you to be priest to the house of one man, or to be priest to a tribe and a family in Israel?"
  20. The priest's heart was glad, and he took the ephod, and the teraphim, and the engraved image, and went in the midst of the people.
  21. So they turned and departed, and put the little ones and the livestock and the goods before them.
  22. When they were a good way from the house of Micah, the men who were in the houses near to Micah's house were gathered together, and overtook the children of Dan.
  23. They cried to the children of Dan. They turned their faces, and said to Micah, "What ails you, that you come with such a company?"
  24. He said, "You have taken away my gods which I made, and the priest, and have gone away, and what more do I have? How then do you say to me, 'What ails you?'"
  25. The children of Dan said to him, "Don't let your voice be heard among us, lest angry fellows fall on you, and you lose your life, with the lives of your household."
  26. The children of Dan went their way: and when Micah saw that they were too strong for him, he turned and went back to his house.
  27. They took that which Micah had made, and the priest whom he had, and came to Laish, to a people quiet and secure, and struck them with the edge of the sword; and they burnt the city with fire.
  28. There was no deliverer, because it was far from Sidon, and they had no dealings with any man; and it was in the valley that lies by Beth Rehob. They built the city, and lived therein.
  29. They called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan their father, who was born to Israel: however the name of the city was Laish at the first.
  30. The children of Dan set up for themselves the engraved image: and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Moses, he and his sons were priests to the tribe of the Danites until the day of the captivity of the land.
  31. So they set them up Micah's engraved image which he made, all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh.

  19. ויאמרו לו החרש שים־ידך על־פיך ולך עמנו והיה־לנו לאב ולכהן הטוב היותך כהן לבית איש אחד או היותך כהן לשבט ולמשפחה בישראל׃
  20. וייטב לב הכהן ויקח את־האפוד ואת־התרפים ואת־הפסל ויבא בקרב העם׃
  21. ויפנו וילכו וישימו את־הטף ואת־המקנה ואת־הכבודה לפניהם׃
  22. המה הרחיקו מבית מיכה והאנשים אשר בבתים אשר עם־בית מיכה נזעקו וידביקו את־בני־דן׃
  23. ויקראו אל־בני־דן ויסבו פניהם ויאמרו למיכה מה־לך כי נזעקת׃
  24. ויאמר את־אלהי אשר־עשיתי לקחתם ואת־הכהן ותלכו ומה־לי עוד ומה־זה תאמרו אלי מה־לך׃
  25. ויאמרו אליו בני־דן אל־תשמע קולך עמנו פן־יפגעו בכם אנשים מרי נפש ואספתה נפשך ונפש ביתך׃
  26. וילכו בני־דן לדרכם וירא מיכה כי־חזקים המה ממנו ויפן וישב אל־ביתו׃
  27. והמה לקחו את אשר־עשה מיכה ואת־הכהן אשר היה־לו ויבאו על־ליש על־עם שקט ובטח ויכו אותם לפי־חרב ואת־העיר שרפו באש׃
  28. ואין מציל כי רחוקה־היא מצידון ודבר אין־להם עם־אדם והיא בעמק אשר לבית־רחוב ויבנו את־העיר וישבו בה׃
  29. ויקראו שם־העיר דן בשם דן אביהם אשר יולד לישראל ואולם ליש שם־העיר לראשנה׃
  30. ויקימו להם בני־דן את־הפסל ויהונתן בן־גרשם בן־מנשה הוא ובניו היו כהנים לשבט הדני עד־יום גלות הארץ׃
  31. וישימו להם את־פסל מיכה אשר עשה כל־ימי היות בית־האלהים בשלה׃ ף

Judges 18 Text (Latin)
  1. In diebus illis non erat rex in Israël, et tribus Dan quærebat possessionem sibi, ut habitaret in ea : usque ad illum enim diem inter ceteras tribus sortem non acceperat.
  2. Miserunt ergo filii Dan stirpis et familiæ suæ quinque viros fortissimos de Saraa et Esthaol, ut explorarent terram, et diligenter inspicerent : dixeruntque eis : Ite, et considerate terram. Qui cum pergentes venissent in montem Ephraim, et intrassent domum Michæ, requieverunt ibi :
  3. et agnoscentes vocem adolescentis Levitæ, utentesque illius diversorio, dixerunt ad eum : Quis te huc adducit ? quid hic agis ? quam ob causam huc venire voluisti ?
  4. Qui respondit eis : Hæc et hæc præstitit mihi Michas, et me mercede conduxit, ut sim ei sacerdos.
  5. Rogaverunt autem eum ut consuleret Dominum ut scire possent an prospero itinere pergerent, et res haberet effectum.
  6. Qui respondit eis : Ite in pace : Dominus respicit viam vestram, et iter quo pergitis.
  7. Euntes igitur quinque viri venerunt Lais : videruntque populum habitantem in ea absque ullo timore, juxta consuetudinem Sidoniorum, securum et quietum, nullo ei penitus resistente, magnarumque opum, et procul a Sidone atque a cunctis hominibus separatum.
  8. Reversique ad fratres suos in Saraa et Esthaol, et quid egissent sciscitantibus responderunt :
  9. Surgite, ascendamus ad eos : vidimus enim terram valde opulentam et uberem : nolite negligere, nolite cessare : eamus, et possideamus eam : nullus erit labor.
  10. Intrabimus ad securos, in regionem latissimam, tradetque nobis Dominus locum, in quo nullius rei penuria, eorum quæ gignuntur in terra.
  11. Profecti igitur sunt de cognatione Dan, id est, de Saraa et Esthaol, sexcenti viri accincti armis bellicis,
  12. ascendentesque manserunt in Cariathiarim Judæ : qui locus ex eo tempore Castrorum Dan nomen accepit, et est post tergum Cariathiarim.
  13. Inde transierunt in montem Ephraim. Cumque venissent ad domum Michæ,
  14. dixerunt quinque viri, qui prius missi fuerant ad considerandam terram Lais, ceteris fratribus suis : Nostis quod in domibus istis sit ephod, et theraphim, et sculptile, atque conflatile : videte quid vobis placeat.
  15. Et cum paululum declinassent, ingressi sunt domum adolescentis Levitæ, qui erat in domo Michæ : salutaveruntque eum verbis pacificis.
  16. Sexcenti autem viri ita ut erant armati, stabant ante ostium.
  17. At illi, qui ingressi fuerant domum juvenis, sculptile, et ephod, et theraphim, atque conflatile tollere nitebantur, et sacerdos stabat ante ostium, sexcentis viris fortissimis haud procul expectantibus.
  18. Tulerunt igitur qui intraverant sculptile, ephod, et idola, atque conflatile. Quibus dixit sacerdos : Quid facitis ?
  19. Cui responderunt : Tace et pone digitum super os tuum : venique nobiscum, ut habeamus te patrem, ac sacerdotem. Quid tibi melius est, ut sis sacerdos in domo unius viri, an in una tribu et familia in Israël ?
  20. Quod cum audisset, acquievit sermonibus eorum, et tulit ephod, et idola, ac sculptile, et profectus est cum eis.
  21. Qui cum pergerent, et ante se ire fecissent parvulos ac jumenta, et omne quod erat pretiosum,
  22. et jam a domo Michæ essent procul, viri qui habitabant in ædibus Michæ conclamantes secuti sunt,
  23. et post tergum clamare cœperunt. Qui cum respexissent, dixerunt ad Micham : Quid tibi vis ? cur clamas ?
  24. Qui respondit : Deos meos, quos mihi feci, tulistis, et sacerdotem, et omnia quæ habeo, et dicitis : Quid tibi est ?
  25. Dixeruntque ei filii Dan : Cave ne ultra loquaris ad nos, et veniant ad te viri animo concitati, et ipse cum omni domo tua pereas.
  26. Et sic cœpto itinere perrexerunt. Videns autem Michas quod fortiores se essent, reversus est in domum suam.
  27. Sexcenti autem viri tulerunt sacerdotem, et quæ supra diximus : veneruntque in Lais ad populum quiescentem atque securum, et percusserunt eos in ore gladii : urbemque incendio tradiderunt,
  28. nullo penitus ferente præsidium, eo quod procul habitarent a Sidone, et cum nullo hominum haberent quidquam societatis ac negotii. Erat autem civitas sita in regione Rohob : quam rursum exstruentes habitaverunt in ea,
  29. vocato nomine civitatis Dan, juxta vocabulum patris sui, quem genuerat Israël, quæ prius Lais dicebatur.
  30. Posueruntque sibi sculptile, et Jonathan filium Gersam filii Moysi, ac filios ejus sacerdotes in tribu Dan, usque ad diem captivitatis suæ.
  31. Mansitque apud eos idolum Michæ omni tempore, quo fuit domus Dei in Silo. In diebus illis non erat rex in Israël.
Judges 18 Text (KJV)
  1. In those days there was no king in Israel: and in those days the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance to dwell in; for unto that day all their inheritance had not fallen unto them among the tribes of Israel.
  2. And the children of Dan sent of their family five men from their coasts, men of valour, from Zorah, and from Eshtaol, to spy out the land, and to search it; and they said unto them, Go, search the land: who when they came to mount Ephraim, to the house of Micah, they lodged there.
  3. When they were by the house of Micah, they knew the voice of the young man the Levite: and they turned in thither, and said unto him, Who brought thee hither? and what makest thou in this place? and what hast thou here?
  4. And he said unto them, Thus and thus dealeth Micah with me, and hath hired me, and I am his priest.
  5. And they said unto him, Ask counsel, we pray thee, of God, that we may know whether our way which we go shall be prosperous.
  6. And the priest said unto them, Go in peace: before the LORD is your way wherein ye go.
  7. Then the five men departed, and came to Laish, and saw the people that were therein, how they dwelt careless, after the manner of the Zidonians, quiet and secure; and there was no magistrate in the land, that might put them to shame in any thing; and they were far from the Zidonians, and had no business with any man.
  8. And they came unto their brethren to Zorah and Eshtaol: and their brethren said unto them, What say ye?
  9. And they said, Arise, that we may go up against them: for we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good: and are ye still? be not slothful to go, and to enter to possess the land.
  10. When ye go, ye shall come unto a people secure, and to a large land: for God hath given it into your hands; a place where there is no want of any thing that is in the earth.
  11. And there went from thence of the family of the Danites, out of Zorah and out of Eshtaol, six hundred men appointed with weapons of war.
  12. And they went up, and pitched in Kirjath-jearim, in Judah: wherefore they called that place Mahaneh-dan unto this day: behold, it is behind Kirjath-jearim.
  13. And they passed thence unto mount Ephraim, and came unto the house of Micah.
  14. Then answered the five men that went to spy out the country of Laish, and said unto their brethren, Do ye know that there is in these houses an ephod, and teraphim, and a graven image, and a molten image? now therefore consider what ye have to do.
  15. And they turned thitherward, and came to the house of the young man the Levite, even unto the house of Micah, and saluted him.
  16. And the six hundred men appointed with their weapons of war, which were of the children of Dan, stood by the entering of the gate.
  17. And the five men that went to spy out the land went up, and came in thither, and took the graven image, and the ephod, and the teraphim, and the molten image: and the priest stood in the entering of the gate with the six hundred men that were appointed with weapons of war.
  18. And these went into Micah's house, and fetched the carved image, the ephod, and the teraphim, and the molten image. Then said the priest unto them, What do ye?
  19. And they said unto him, Hold thy peace, lay thine hand upon thy mouth, and go with us, and be to us a father and a priest: is it better for thee to be a priest unto the house of one man, or that thou be a priest unto a tribe and a family in Israel?
  20. And the priest's heart was glad, and he took the ephod, and the teraphim, and the graven image, and went in the midst of the people.
  21. So they turned and departed, and put the little ones and the cattle and the carriage before them.
  22. And when they were a good way from the house of Micah, the men that were in the houses near to Micah's house were gathered together, and overtook the children of Dan.
  23. And they cried unto the children of Dan. And they turned their faces, and said unto Micah, What aileth thee, that thou comest with such a company?
  24. And he said, Ye have taken away my gods which I made, and the priest, and ye are gone away: and what have I more? and what is this that ye say unto me, What aileth thee?
  25. And the children of Dan said unto him, Let not thy voice be heard among us, lest angry fellows run upon thee, and thou lose thy life, with the lives of thy household.
  26. And the children of Dan went their way: and when Micah saw 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 Beth-rehob. And they built a city, and dwelt therein.
  29. And they called the name of the city Dan, 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 up Micah's graven image, which he made, all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh.
