2 Kings 17:5-24

Then the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
came up
<05927> (8799)
throughout all the land
<0776>_,
and went up
<05927> (8799)
to Samaria
<08111>_,
and besieged
<06696> (8799)
it three
<07969>
years
<08141>_.
In the ninth
<08671>
year
<08141>
of Hoshea
<01954>
the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
took
<03920> (8804)
Samaria
<08111>_,
and carried
<01540> (0)
Israel
<03478>
away
<01540> (8686)
into Assyria
<0804>_,
and placed
<03427> (8686)
them in Halah
<02477>
and in Habor
<02249>
[by] the river
<05104>
of Gozan
<01470>_,
and in the cities
<05892>
of the Medes
<04074>_.
For [so] it was, that the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
had sinned
<02398> (8804)
against the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_,
which had brought them up
<05927> (8688)
out of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
from under the hand
<03027>
of Pharaoh
<06547>
king
<04428>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
and had feared
<03372> (8799)
other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_,
And walked
<03212> (8799)
in the statutes
<02708>
of the heathen
<01471>_,
whom the LORD
<03068>
cast out
<03423> (8689)
from before
<06440>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
which they had made
<06213> (8804)_.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
did secretly
<02644> (8762)
[those] things
<01697>
that [were] not right against the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_,
and they built
<01129> (8799)
them high places
<01116>
in all their cities
<05892>_,
from the tower
<04026>
of the watchmen
<05341> (8802)
to the fenced
<04013>
city
<05892>_.
And they set them up
<05324> (8686)
images
<04676>
and groves
<0842>
in every high
<01364>
hill
<01389>_,
and under every green
<07488>
tree
<06086>_:
{images: Heb. statues}
And there they burnt incense
<06999> (8762)
in all the high places
<01116>_,
as [did] the heathen
<01471>
whom the LORD
<03068>
carried away
<01540> (8689)
before
<06440>
them; and wrought
<06213> (8799)
wicked
<07451>
things
<01697>
to provoke the LORD
<03068>
to anger
<03707> (8687)_:
For they served
<05647> (8799)
idols
<01544>_,
whereof the LORD
<03068>
had said
<0559> (8804)
unto them, Ye shall not do
<06213> (8799)
this thing
<01697>_.
Yet the LORD
<03068>
testified
<05749> (8686)
against Israel
<03478>_,
and against Judah
<03063>_,
by
<03027>
all the prophets
<05030>_,
[and by] all the seers
<02374>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Turn
<07725> (8798)
ye from your evil
<07451>
ways
<01870>_,
and keep
<08104> (8798)
my commandments
<04687>
[and] my statutes
<02708>_,
according to all the law
<08451>
which I commanded
<06680> (8765)
your fathers
<01>_,
and which I sent
<07971> (8804)
to you by
<03027>
my servants
<05650>
the prophets
<05030>_.
{by: Heb. by the hand of}
Notwithstanding they would not hear
<08085> (8804)_,
but hardened
<07185> (8686)
their necks
<06203>_,
like to the neck
<06203>
of their fathers
<01>_,
that did not believe
<0539> (8689)
in the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_.
And they rejected
<03988> (8799)
his statutes
<02706>_,
and his covenant
<01285>
that he made
<03772> (8804)
with their fathers
<01>_,
and his testimonies
<05715>
which he testified
<05749> (8689)
against them; and they followed
<03212> (8799) <0310>
vanity
<01892>_,
and became vain
<01891> (8799)_,
and went after
<0310>
the heathen
<01471>
that [were] round about
<05439>
them, [concerning] whom the LORD
<03068>
had charged
<06680> (8765)
them, that they should not do
<06213> (8800)
like them.
And they left
<05800> (8799)
all the commandments
<04687>
of the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_,
and made
<06213> (8799)
them molten images
<04541>_,
[even] two
<08147>
calves
<05695>_,
and made
<06213> (8799)
a grove
<0842>_,
and worshipped
<07812> (8691)
all the host
<06635>
of heaven
<08064>_,
and served
<05647> (8799)
Baal
<01168>_.
And they caused their sons
<01121>
and their daughters
<01323>
to pass
<05674> (8686)
through the fire
<0784>_,
and used
<07080> (8799)
divination
<07081>
and enchantments
<05172> (8762)_,
and sold
<04376> (8691)
themselves to do
<06213> (8800)
evil
<07451>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to provoke him to anger
<03707> (8687)_.
Therefore the LORD
<03068>
was very
<03966>
angry
<0599> (8691)
with Israel
<03478>_,
and removed
<05493> (8686)
them out of his sight
<06440>_:
there was none left
<07604> (8738)
but the tribe
<07626>
of Judah
<03063>
only.
Also Judah
<03063>
kept
<08104> (8804)
not the commandments
<04687>
of the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>_,
but walked
<03212> (8799)
in the statutes
<02708>
of Israel
<03478>
which they made
<06213> (8804)_.
And the LORD
<03068>
rejected
<03988> (8799)
all the seed
<02233>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and afflicted
<06031> (8762)
them, and delivered
<05414> (8799)
them into the hand
<03027>
of spoilers
<08154> (8802)_,
until he had cast
<07993> (8689)
them out of his sight
<06440>_.
For he rent
<07167> (8804)
Israel
<03478>
from the house
<01004>
of David
<01732>_;
and they made Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>
king
<04427> (8686)_:
and Jeroboam
<03379>
drave
<05080> (8686) (8675) <05077> (8686)
Israel
<03478>
from following
<0310>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and made them sin
<02398> (8689)
a great
<01419>
sin
<02401>_.
For the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
walked
<03212> (8799)
in all the sins
<02403>
of Jeroboam
<03379>
which he did
<06213> (8804)_;
they departed
<05493> (8804)
not from them;
Until the LORD
<03068>
removed
<05493> (8689)
Israel
<03478>
out of his sight
<06440>_,
as he had said
<01696> (8765)
by
<03027>
all his servants
<05650>
the prophets
<05030>_.
So was Israel
<03478>
carried away
<01540> (8799)
out of their own land
<0127>
to Assyria
<0804>
unto this day
<03117>_.
And the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
brought
<0935> (8686)
[men] from Babylon
<0894>_,
and from Cuthah
<03575>_,
and from Ava
<05755>_,
and from Hamath
<02574>_,
and from Sepharvaim
<05617>_,
and placed
<03427> (8686)
[them] in the cities
<05892>
of Samaria
<08111>
instead of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_:
and they possessed
<03423> (8799)
Samaria
<08111>_,
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in the cities
<05892>
thereof.
