He was from the hill country of Ephraim but was living temporarily in Gibeah, but the men of the place were Benjamites. 17 And when he looked up, he saw the wayfarer in the city square, and the old man said, Where are you going?

I went to Bethlehem of Judah, but I am [now] going [home] to the house of the Lord [where I serve], and there is no man who receives me into his house.
