    Blessed - Happy.

    Clarke's Commentary on Judges 17:2

    About which thou cursedst - Houbigant and others understand this of putting the young man to his oath. It is likely that when the mother of Micah missed the money, she poured imprecations on the thief; and that Micah, who had secreted it, hearing this, was alarmed, and restored the money lest the curses should fall on him.

    Thou cursedst - or, "adjuredst me by God." Compare Matthew 26:63; Leviticus 5:1.

    Wesley's Notes on Judges 17:2

    17:2 Cursedst - That is, didst curse the person who had taken them away. I took it - The fear of thy curse makes me acknowledge mine offence, and beg thy pardon. Blessed - I willingly consent to, and beg from God the removal of the curse, and a blessing instead of it. Be thou free from my curse, because thou hast so honestly restored it.
