CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
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.
Korah, he has already given this special ministry to you and your fellow Levites. Are you now demanding the priesthood as well?
Then the LORD said to Aaron: "You, your sons, and your relatives from the tribe of Levi will be held responsible for any offenses related to the sanctuary. But you and your sons alone will be held responsible for violations connected with the priesthood.
The Levite agreed to this, and the young man became like one of Micah's sons.
"I know the LORD will bless me now," Micah said, "because I have a Levite serving as my priest."
He told them about his agreement with Micah and that he had been hired as Micah's personal priest.
