Judges 18:27 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
18:27 Burnt - Not wholly, but in great measure, to make their conquest more easy.
"Dan will govern his people, like any other tribe in Israel.
But the tribe of Dan had trouble taking possession of their land, so they attacked the town of Laish. They captured it, slaughtered its people, and settled there. They renamed the town Dan after their ancestor.
So the five men went on to the town of Laish, where they noticed the people living carefree lives, like the Sidonians; they were peaceful and secure. The people were also wealthy because their land was very fertile. And they lived a great distance from Sidon and had no allies nearby.
So the men of Dan continued on their way. When Micah saw that there were too many of them for him to attack, he turned around and went home.
