Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Judges 18:22-26

_ _ the men that were in the houses near to Micah’s house were gathered together — The robbers of the chapel being soon detected, a hot pursuit was forthwith commenced by Micah, at the head of a considerable body of followers. The readiness with which they joined in the attempt to recover the stolen articles affords a presumption that the advantages of the chapel had been open to all in the neighborhood; and the importance which Micah, like Laban, attached to his teraphim, is seen by the urgency with which he pursued the thieves, and the risk of his life in attempting to procure their restoration. Finding his party, however, not a match for the Danites, he thought it prudent to desist, well knowing the rule which was then prevalent in the land, that

“They should take who had the power,
And they should keep who could.”
Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Judges 18:14-26.
