Micah set up the descendant of Levi in ministry, and the young man became his priest while he lived in Micah's house. As for Micah, he kept saying, "Now I know the LORD will make me rich, because I have a descendant of Levi for a priest!"
He answered, "Micah did such and such for me, and has hired me, so I've become his priest."
So Micah replied, "Come live with me! You can be a spiritual father to me, as well as a priest. I'll pay you ten silver coins a year, plus a priestly uniform and an income." So the descendant of Levi moved in.
They told him, "Shut up and keep quiet. Come with us and be our spiritual father and priest. It's better for you, isn't it, to be a priest to an entire tribe and family in Israel than to be priest to the home of one man?"
Micah replied, "You took my gods that I crafted, along with the priest, and left! What do I have left? So what's with this "What's wrong with you?'"
Next I selected twelve of the chief priests Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brothers with them
So the word of God continued to spread, and the number of disciples in Jerusalem continued to grow rapidly. Even a large number of priests became obedient to the faith.
