2 Kings 17:20-23

17:20 So the Lord rejected all of Israel’s descendants; he humiliated 1  them and handed them over to robbers, until he had thrown them from his presence. 17:21 He tore Israel away from David’s dynasty, and Jeroboam son of Nebat became their king. 2  Jeroboam drove Israel away 3  from the Lord and encouraged them to commit a serious sin. 4  17:22 The Israelites followed in the sinful ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat and did not repudiate 5  them. 17:23 Finally 6  the Lord rejected Israel 7  just as he had warned he would do 8  through all his servants the prophets. Israel was deported from its land to Assyria and remains there to this very day.
