Judges 18:13 MEANING

Judges 18:13
(13) Unto the house of Micah.--Probably the precincts of the new sanctuary gave their name to a sort of village--Beth-Micah.

17:7-13 Micah thought it was a sign of God's favour to him and his images, that a Levite should come to his door. Thus those who please themselves with their own delusions, if Providence unexpectedly bring any thing to their hands that further them in their evil way, are apt from thence to think that God is pleased with them.And they passed thence unto Mount Ephraim,.... Steering their coast still northward; this, according to Bunting (b), was eight miles from Kirjathjearim, or Mahanehdan, in which Micah's house was, for as yet they were not come to it, see Judges 18:15.

(b) Ibid. (Travels of the Patriarchs, &c. p. 112.)
