Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 17:12

_ _ Micah consecrated the LeviteHebrew, “filled his hand.” This act of consecration was not less unlawful for Micah to perform than for this Levite to receive (see on Judges 18:30).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 17:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 17:12

Consecrated — To be a priest, for which he thought a consecration necessary, as knowing the Levites were no less excluded from the priest's office than the people. The young man — Instead of his son, whom he had consecrated, but now seems to restrain him from the exercise of that office, and to devolve it wholly upon the Levite, who was nearer akin to it.
