11 ! Then come the six hundreth & take the gods, and the Priest of Michah awaie.

14 f Because thei before had had good successe, thei wolde that their brethren shulde be encouraged by hearing the same tidings.

17 g So supersticion blinded them, that thei thoght Gods power was in these idoles, & that thei shulde haue good succes by them, thogh by violence & robbery they did take them awaye.

24 k This declareth what opinion the idolaters haue of their idoles.

27 ! They destroy Laish.

28 ! Thei buyld it againe,
