Introduction to Judges Chapter 18

This chapter relates how the Danites, being overcrowed in their inheritance, sent out spies to search the land, and see if they could find any proper place to add unto it, and enlarge it, Judges 18:1 who returned and reported Laish as such, and encouraged the Danites to go and possess it; for which purpose they sent six hundred men up to it,

Judges 18:7 and as they went, called at the house of Micah, and took away his priests and his gods, Judges 18:13 and having taken Laish, set up Micah's graven image there, Judges 18:28.
