Why does the Torah insert the word "Eleh" exclusively by Efrayim and Dan (in Pasuk 42)?

Ba'al ha'Turim: To hint at the Avodah-Zarah 1 associated with which both tribes, that was set-up by Yerav'am ben Nevat, who descended from Efrayim and who established one image in the tribe of Dan, in Beis-Kel.

2.

Ba'al ha'Turim: Based on "Eleh Elohecha Yisrael" (Shemos 32:4), which was said about the Golden Calf.

Bnei Dan set up the Pesel. Michah was from Har Efrayim, and set up the Pesel there (Shoftim 18:30, 17:1,8).
