A man named Micahyahu which was born in the mountains of Ephraim stole 1,100 from his mom and she began to bless him because she cursed whoever stole her money without knowing that it was her son.
Micah restored the money to his mom and she decided to use 200 coins to make an idol. Micah had an ephod and teraphim at his house and one of his sons was his priest.
At this time, Israel had no king so everybody did what they thought was the right way to handle things. Micah then found a levite and he became his priest. This levite was from Beth-lehem from Judah.
At this time, the tribe of Dan was seeking land so they sent out spies to check out the land. They also went to Micah's house which was in Ephraim.
Spies of Dan
600 men stood at the entrance of the gate of Micah's house after hearing that he has a priest, teraphim, and ephod.
The soldiers snatched the levite with his molten image, ephod, and teraphim. Then, Micah went out but he realized that there army was too strong so he ran back home. The army had to stay in a place called Laish but they renamed the place after their father, Dan.
