Everyone did as he saw fit
Judges 17:6, 21:25 Everyone did as he saw fit
People who do what is right in their own eyes inevitably do what is evil in God’s eyes, spiritual life had declined. Everyone was supposed to do as God saw fit, but instead people followed their own whims. There is a state of anarchy.Idolatory was prevelant and a priest who did not come from a priestly family was installed. One group of Israelites was raiding another as though they were enemies, not relatives
This lawless attitude is prevelant in our days as it was in Micah’s days. True believers must gladly submit to God’s standards and values as revealed in His written word.
