1 καὶ ἐγένετο ἀνὴρ ἐξ ὄρους Εφραιμ καὶ ὄνομα αὐτῷ Μιχα 2 καὶ εἶπεν τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ χιλίους καὶ ἑκατὸν ἀργυρίου τοὺς λημφθέντας σοι καὶ ἐξώρκισας καὶ εἶπας ἐν τοῖς ὠσίν μου ἰδοὺ τὸ ἀργύριον πα{R'} ἐμοί ἐγὼ ἔλαβον αὐτό καὶ εἶπεν ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ εὐλογημένος ὁ υἱός μου τῷ κυρίῳ 3 καὶ ἀπέδωκεν τοὺς χιλίους καὶ ἑκατὸν τοῦ ἀργυρίου τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ ἁγιασμῷ ἡγίασα τὸ ἀργύριον τῷ κυρίῳ ἐκ τῆς χειρός μου κατὰ μόνας τοῦ ποιῆσαι γλυπτὸν καὶ χωνευτόν καὶ νῦν ἐπιστρέψω αὐτά σοι καὶ ἀποδώσω σοι αὐτό 4 καὶ ἀπέδωκεν τὸ ἀργύριον τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔλαβεν ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ διακοσίους τοῦ ἀργυρίου καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸ τῷ χωνευτῇ καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτὸ γλυπτὸν καὶ χωνευτόν καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ Μιχα 5 καὶ ὁ ἀνὴρ Μιχα αὐτῷ οἶκος θεοῦ καὶ ἐποίησεν εφουδ καὶ θεραφιν καὶ ἐνέπλησεν τὴν χεῖρα ἑνὸς τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτῷ εἰς ἱερέα 6 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις οὐκ ἦν βασιλεὺς ἐν Ισραηλ ἀνὴρ τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ ἐποίει 1 Now turn we to a man called Michas, who lived at this same time in the hill-country of Ephraim. 2 His mother had lost eleven hundred silver pieces, which she had set aside; and when, in his presence, she pronounced a curse on the thief, he told her, I have the money, I took it for myself.[1] No curse, then, said she, but a blessing from the Lord on this son of mine. 3 And she told him, as he gave it back to her, I solemnly dedicate this sum of money to the Lord, promising him that my son shall have it from me, to make himself a graven image, with a sheath of cast metal. So now after all it is thine. 4 Then she took out two hundred of the pieces so restored, and gave them to a silversmith, to be melted down into the sheath of a carved image; and there the image stood, in the house of Michas.[2] 5 He set apart a shrine for the worship of God,[3] furnished it with vestments and household deities and installed one of his sons as the priest of it. 6 (This was in the old days of Israel before the monarchy, when men lived by the best light they had.) 1 Fuit eo tempore vir quidam de monte Ephraim nomine Michas, 2 qui dixit matri suæ: Mille et centum argenteos, quos separaveras tibi, et super quibus me audiente juraveras, ecce ego habeo, et apud me sunt. Cui illa respondit: Benedictus filius meus Domino. 3 Reddidit ergo eos matri suæ, quæ dixerat ei: Consecravi et vovi hoc argentum Domino, ut de manu mea suscipiat filius meus, et faciat sculptile atque conflatile: et nunc trado illud tibi. 4 Reddidit igitur eos matri suæ: quæ tulit ducentos argenteos, et dedit eos argentario, ut faceret ex eis sculptile atque conflatile, quod fuit in domo Michæ. 5 Qui ædiculam quoque in ea deo separavit, et fecit ephod, et theraphim, id est, vestem sacerdotalem, et idola: implevitque unius filiorum suorum manum, et factus est ei sacerdos. 6 In diebus illis non erat rex in Israël, sed unusquisque quod sibi rectum videbatur, hoc faciebat.
7 καὶ ἐγένετο παιδάριον ἐκ Βηθλεεμ δήμου Ιουδα ἐκ τῆς συγγενείας Ιουδα καὶ αὐτὸς Λευίτης καὶ αὐτὸς παρῴκει ἐκεῖ 8 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὁ ἀνὴρ ἐκ τῆς πόλεως Ιουδα ἐκ Βηθλεεμ παροικεῖν οὗ ἐὰν εὕρῃ καὶ ἐγενήθη εἰς ὄρος Εφραιμ ἕως οἴκου Μιχα τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ 9 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Μιχα πόθεν ἔρχῃ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν Λευίτης ἐγώ εἰμι ἐκ Βηθλεεμ Ιουδα καὶ ἐγὼ πορεύομαι παροικεῖν οὗ ἐὰν εὕρω 10 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Μιχα κάθου με{T'} ἐμοῦ καὶ γενοῦ μοι εἰς πατέρα καὶ εἰς ἱερέα καὶ ἐγὼ δώσω σοι δέκα ἀργυρίου εἰς ἡμέρας καὶ ζεῦγος ἱματίων καὶ τὰ πρὸς τὸ ζῆν σου καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὁ Λευίτης 11 καὶ ἤρξατο παροικεῖν παρὰ τῷ ἀνδρί καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτῷ τὸ παιδάριον ὡς εἷς τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ 12 καὶ ἐνέπλησεν Μιχα τὴν χεῖρα τοῦ Λευίτου καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτῷ τὸ παιδάριον εἰς ἱερέα καὶ ἦν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ Μιχα 13 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχα νῦν ἔγνων ὅτι ἠγαθοποίησέν με κύριος ὅτι ἐγενήθη μοι ὁ Λευίτης εἰς ἱερέα 7 But the lad was to have a rival, a young man from Bethlehem-Juda, ranking as one of Juda’s clan, but himself a Levite, come from other parts. 8 And now he would leave Bethlehem and go on his travels to find a home that suited him. His journey took him to the hill-country of Ephraim, and there, for a while, he lodged at Michas’ house. 9 When he was asked whence he came, and told them he was a Levite from Bethlehem-Juda, looking for a home that suited him, 10 Why, said Michas, live here with me, and I will honour thee like a father and a priest. Ten silver pieces thou shalt have each year, and a fresh suit of clothes, and thy livelihood. 11 To this he agreed, and dwelt there with him, as well cared for as if he had been one of his sons; 12 and Michas, when he installed the young man as priest in his household, 13 flattered himself that God’s blessing would be with him, now that he had a priest by him of the Levite family. 7 Fuit quoque alter adolescens de Bethlehem Juda, ex cognatione ejus: eratque ipse Levites, et habitabat ibi. 8 Egressusque de civitate Bethlehem, peregrinari voluit ubicumque sibi commodum reperisset. Cumque venisset in montem Ephraim, iter faciens, et declinasset parumper in domum Michæ, 9 interrogatus est ab eo unde venisset. Qui respondit: Levita sum de Bethlehem Juda, et vado ut habitem ubi potuero, et utile mihi esse perspexero. 10 Dixitque Michas: Mane apud me, et esto mihi parens ac sacerdos: daboque tibi per annos singulos decem argenteos, ac vestem duplicem, et quæ ad victum sunt necessaria. 11 Acquievit, et mansit apud hominem, fuitque illi quasi unus de filiis. 12 Implevitque Michas manum ejus, et habuit puerum sacerdotem apud se: 13 Nunc scio, dicens, quod benefaciet mihi Deus habenti Levitici generis sacerdotem.
