This was the token of silence. These men were evidently very ignorant; and absurdly concluded that they should, by taking Micah's gods, secure the presence and favour of the God of Israel, in their expedition and settlement. They perhaps supposed the piety of their motives, and the goodness of their end, would justify the means. But it was a base robbery of Micah, aggravated by the Levite's ingratitude, and their menaces. "Markª°¹ me, and be astonished,ª° and layª° [your] handª upon¹ [your] mouth.ª" {Job 21:5} + "The princesª refrainedª° talking,ª and laidª° [their] handª on their mouth.ª" {Job 29:9} + "Behold,¹ I am vile;ª° what¹ shall I answerª° thee? I will layª° mine handª uponª my mouth.ª ... Onceª have I spoken;ª° but I will not¹ answer:ª° yea, twice;ª but I will proceed no further.ª°¹" {Job 40:4-5} + "If¹ thou hast done foolishlyª° in lifting up²° thyself,¹ or if¹ thou hast thought evil,ª° [lay] thine handª upon thy mouth.ª" {Prv 30:32} + "The nationsª shall seeª° and be confoundedª° at all¹¹ their might:ª they shall layª° [their] handª upon¹ [their] mouth,ª their earsª shall be deaf.ª°" {Mic 7:16}
