he Danites seek to enlarge their inheritance, and rob Micah.
- The Danites determined to take Micah's gods with them. Oh the
folly of these Danites! How could they imagine those gods should
protect them, that could not keep themselves from being stolen!
To take them for their own use, was a double crime; it showed
they neither feared God, nor regarded man, but were lost both to
godliness and honesty. What a folly was it for Micah to call
those his gods, which he had made, when He only is to be
worshipped by us as God, that made us! That is put in God's
place, which we are concerned about, as if our all were bound up
in it. If people will walk in the name of their false gods, much
more should we love and serve the true God!
