Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 17:8

_ _ the man departed ... to sojourn where he could find a place — A competent provision being secured for every member of the Levitical order, his wandering about showed him to have been a person of a roving disposition or unsettled habits. In the course of his journeying he came to the house of Micah, who, on learning what he was, engaged his permanent services.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 17:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Judges 17:8

To sojourn — For employment and a livelihood; for the tithes and offerings, which were their maintenance, not being brought into the house of God, the Levites and priests were reduced to straights.
