New Defender's Study Bible Notes
18:30 Gershom, the son of Manasseh. This story involves Micah of the tribe of Ephraim, a young Levite living with the tribe of Judah, and the northern settlers from the tribe of Dan. It does not follow the story of Samson chronologically, but took place much earlier (apparently during or soon after Joshua’s conquest). In this passage the Danites had not yet completely occupied their promised territory.
