17 Now the five men who went to spy out the land went up and entered there; they took the carved image, the ephod, the [a]household idols, and the cast metal image, while the priest was standing at the entrance of the gate with the six hundred men armed with weapons of war.18 When these men entered Micah’s house and took the carved image, the ephod, [b]household idols, and the cast metal image, the priest said to them, “What are you doing?”
Jeremiah 43:12-13New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 And [a]I shall set fire to the temples of the gods of Egypt, and he will burn them and take them captive. So he will [b]wrap himself with the land of Egypt as a shepherd [c]wraps himself with his garment, and he will depart from there safely.13 He will also smash to pieces the [d]obelisks of [e]Heliopolis, which is in the land of Egypt; and the temples of the gods of Egypt he will burn with fire.”’”
5 The inhabitants of Samaria will fear For the [a]calf of Beth-aven. Indeed, its people will mourn for it, And its idolatrous priests [b]will cry out over it, Over its glory, since it has left it. 6 The thing itself will be brought to Assyria As a gift of tribute to [c]King Jareb; Ephraim will [d]be seized with shame, And Israel will be ashamed of its own plan.
