1. Judges 17:5 (ESV)
  2. Exposition

What is implied in the reference to Micah’s making an ephod and household gods?

Judges 17:5 (ESV)

5 And the man Micah had a shrine, and he made an ephod and household gods, and ordained one of his sons, who became his priest.

This implies that Micah designed and contributed the material for the production of the ephod and household gods. He wanted these oracular figures in his shrine.
