Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 17:13

_ _ Now know I that the Lord will do me good — The removal of his son, followed by the installation of this Levite into the priestly office, seems to have satisfied his conscience, that by what he deemed the orderly ministrations of religion he would prosper. This expression of his hope evinces the united influence of ignorance and superstition.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 17:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 17:13

Do me good — I am assured God will bless me. So blind and grossly partial he was in his judgment, to think that one right circumstance would answer for all his substantial errors, in making and worshipping images against God's express command, in worshipping God in a forbidden place, by a priest illegally appointed.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Judges 17:13

Then said Micah, Now know I that the LORD will do me (i) good, seeing I have a Levite to [my] priest.

(i) Thus the idolaters persuade themselves of God's favour, when indeed he detests them.
