Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 18:2 - So the Danites sent five able men from the whole number of their tribe, from Zorah and from Esh'ta-ol, to spy out the land and to explore it; and they said to them, "Go and explore the land." And they came to the hill country of E'phraim, to the house of Micah, and lodged there.

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 18:3 - When they were by the house of Micah, they recognized the voice of the young Levite; and they turned aside and said to him, "Who brought you here? What are you doing in this place? What is your business here?"

Unchecked Copy BoxJdg 18:6 - And the priest said to them, "Go in peace. The journey on which you go is under the eye of the LORD."
