New International Version
14 Then the five men who had spied out the land of Laish(A) said to their fellow Danites, “Do you know that one of these houses has an ephod,(B) some household gods and an image overlaid with silver?(C) Now you know what to do.” 15 So they turned in there and went to the house of the young Levite at Micah’s place and greeted him. 16 The six hundred Danites,(D) armed for battle, stood at the entrance of the gate. 17 The five men who had spied out the land went inside and took the idol, the ephod and the household gods(E) while the priest and the six hundred armed men(F) stood at the entrance of the gate.
19 They answered him, “Be quiet!(I) Don’t say a word. Come with us, and be our father and priest.(J) Isn’t it better that you serve a tribe and clan(K) in Israel as priest rather than just one man’s household?” 20 The priest was very pleased. He took the ephod, the household gods and the idol and went along with the people.
