2 Kings

Chapter 17

  1. 1. In the twelfth
    H6240
    H8147
    year
    H8141
    of Ahaz
    H271
    king
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    began Hoshea
    H1954
    the son
    H1121
    of Elah
    H425
    to reign
    H4427
    in Samaria
    H8111
    over Israel
    H3478
    nine
    H8672
    years.
    H8141
  2. 2. And he did
    H6213
    that which was evil
    H7451
    in the sight
    H5869
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    but not as the kings
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    that were before
    H6440
    him.
  3. 3. Against him came up
    H5927
    Shalmaneser
    H8022
    king
    H4428
    of Assyria;
    H804
    and Hoshea
    H1954
    became his servant,
    H5650
    and gave
    H7725
    him presents.
    H4503
  4. 4. And the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    found
    H4672
    conspiracy
    H7195
    in Hoshea:
    H1954
    for he had sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    to So
    H5471
    king
    H4428
    of Egypt,
    H4714
    and brought
    H5927
    no present
    H4503
    to the king
    H4428
    of Assyria,
    H804
    as he had done year
    H8141
    by year:
    H8141
    therefore the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    shut him up,
    H6113
    and bound
    H631
    him in prison.
    H3608
    H1004
  5. 5. Then the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    came up
    H5927
    throughout all the land,
    H776
    and went up
    H5927
    to Samaria,
    H8111
    and besieged
    H6696
    it three
    H7969
    years.
    H8141
  6. 6. In the ninth
    H8671
    year
    H8141
    of Hoshea
    H1954
    the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    took
    H3920
    Samaria,
    H8111
    and carried
    H1540
    Israel
    H3478
    away
    H1540
    into Assyria,
    H804
    and placed
    H3427
    them in Halah
    H2477
    and in Habor
    H2249
    by the river
    H5104
    of Gozan,
    H1470
    and in the cities
    H5892
    of the Medes.
    H4074
  7. 7. For so it was, that the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    had sinned
    H2398
    against the LORD
    H3068
    their God,
    H430
    which had brought them up
    H5927
    out of the land
    H776
    of Egypt,
    H4714
    from under the hand
    H3027
    of Pharaoh
    H6547
    king
    H4428
    of Egypt,
    H4714
    and had feared
    H3372
    other
    H312
    gods,
    H430
  8. 8. And walked
    H3212
    in the statutes
    H2708
    of the heathen,
    H1471
    whom the LORD
    H3068
    cast out
    H3423
    from before
    H6440
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and of the kings
    H4428
    of Israel,
    H3478
    which they had made.
    H6213
  9. 9. And the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    did secretly
    H2644
    those things
    H1697
    that were not right against the LORD
    H3068
    their God,
    H430
    and they built
    H1129
    them high places
    H1116
    in all their cities,
    H5892
    from the tower
    H4026
    of the watchmen
    H5341
    to the fenced
    H4013
    city.
    H5892
  10. 10. And they set them up
    H5324
    images
    H4676
    and groves
    H842
    in every high
    H1364
    hill,
    H1389
    and under every green
    H7488
    tree:
    H6086
  11. 11. And there they burnt incense
    H6999
    in all the high places,
    H1116
    as did the heathen
    H1471
    whom the LORD
    H3068
    carried away
    H1540
    before
    H6440
    them; and wrought
    H6213
    wicked
    H7451
    things
    H1697
    to provoke the LORD
    H3068
    to anger:
    H3707
  12. 12. For they served
    H5647
    idols,
    H1544
    whereof the LORD
    H3068
    had said
    H559
    unto them, Ye shall not do
    H6213
    this thing.
    H1697
  13. 13. Yet the LORD
    H3068
    testified
    H5749
    against Israel,
    H3478
    and against Judah,
    H3063
    by
    H3027
    all the prophets,
    H5030
    and by all the seers,
    H2374
    saying,
    H559
    Turn
    H7725
    ye from your evil
    H7451
    ways,
    H1870
    and keep
    H8104
    my commandments
    H4687
    and my statutes,
    H2708
    according to all the law
    H8451
    which I commanded
    H6680
    your fathers,
    H1
    and which I sent
    H7971
    to you by
    H3027
    my servants
    H5650
    the prophets.
    H5030
  14. 14. Notwithstanding they would not hear,
    H8085
    but hardened
    H7185
    their necks,
    H6203
    like to the neck
    H6203
    of their fathers,
    H1
    that did not believe
    H539
    in the LORD
    H3068
    their God.
    H430
  15. 15. And they rejected
    H3988
    his statutes,
    H2706
    and his covenant
    H1285
    that he made
    H3772
    with their fathers,
    H1
    and his testimonies
    H5715
    which he testified
    H5749
    against them; and they followed
    H3212
    H310
    vanity,
    H1892
    and became vain,
    H1891
    and went after
    H310
    the heathen
    H1471
    that were round about
    H5439
    them, concerning whom the LORD
    H3068
    had charged
    H6680
    them, that they should not do
    H6213
    like them.
  16. 16. And they left
    H5800
    all the commandments
    H4687
    of the LORD
    H3068
    their God,
    H430
    and made
    H6213
    them molten images,
    H4541
    even two
    H8147
    calves,
    H5695
    and made
    H6213
    a grove,
    H842
    and worshipped
    H7812
    all the host
    H6635
    of heaven,
    H8064
    and served
    H5647
    Baal.
    H1168
  17. 17. And they caused their sons
    H1121
    and their daughters
    H1323
    to pass
    H5674
    through the fire,
    H784
    and used
    H7080
    divination
    H7081
    and enchantments,
    H5172
    and sold
    H4376
    themselves to do
    H6213
    evil
    H7451
    in the sight
    H5869
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    to provoke him to anger.
    H3707
  18. 18. Therefore the LORD
    H3068
    was very
    H3966
    angry
    H599
    with Israel,
    H3478
    and removed
    H5493
    them out of his sight:
    H6440
    there was none left
    H7604
    but the tribe
    H7626
    of Judah
    H3063
    only.
  19. 19. Also Judah
    H3063
    kept
    H8104
    not the commandments
    H4687
    of the LORD
    H3068
    their God,
    H430
    but walked
    H3212
    in the statutes
    H2708
    of Israel
    H3478
    which they made.
    H6213
  20. 20. And the LORD
    H3068
    rejected
    H3988
    all the seed
    H2233
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and afflicted
    H6031
    them, and delivered
    H5414
    them into the hand
    H3027
    of spoilers,
    H8154
    until he had cast
    H7993
    them out of his sight.
    H6440
  21. 21. For he rent
    H7167
    Israel
    H3478
    from the house
    H1004
    of David;
    H1732
    and they made Jeroboam
    H3379
    the son
    H1121
    of Nebat
    H5028
    king:
    H4427
    and Jeroboam
    H3379
    drave
    H5080
    H5077
    Israel
    H3478
    from following
    H310
    the LORD,
    H3068
    and made them sin
    H2398
    a great
    H1419
    sin.
    H2401
  22. 22. For the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    walked
    H3212
    in all the sins
    H2403
    of Jeroboam
    H3379
    which he did;
    H6213
    they departed
    H5493
    not from them;
  23. 23. Until the LORD
    H3068
    removed
    H5493
    Israel
    H3478
    out of his sight,
    H6440
    as he had said
    H1696
    by
    H3027
    all his servants
    H5650
    the prophets.
    H5030
    So was Israel
    H3478
    carried away
    H1540
    out of their own land
    H127
    to Assyria
    H804
    unto this day.
    H3117
  24. 24. And the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    brought
    H935
    men from Babylon,
    H894
    and from Cuthah,
    H3575
    and from Ava,
    H5755
    and from Hamath,
    H2574
    and from Sepharvaim,
    H5617
    and placed
    H3427
    them in the cities
    H5892
    of Samaria
    H8111
    instead of the children
    H1121
    of Israel:
    H3478
    and they possessed
    H3423
    Samaria,
    H8111
    and dwelt
    H3427
    in the cities
    H5892
    thereof.
  25. 25. And so it was at the beginning
    H8462
    of their dwelling
    H3427
    there, that they feared
    H3372
    not the LORD:
    H3068
    therefore the LORD
    H3068
    sent
    H7971
    lions
    H738
    among them, which slew
    H2026
    some of them.
  26. 26. Wherefore they spake
    H559
    to the king
    H4428
    of Assyria,
    H804
    saying,
    H559
    The nations
    H1471
    which thou hast removed,
    H1540
    and placed
    H3427
    in the cities
    H5892
    of Samaria,
    H8111
    know
    H3045
    not the manner
    H4941
    of the God
    H430
    of the land:
    H776
    therefore he hath sent
    H7971
    lions
    H738
    among them, and, behold, they slay
    H4191
    them, because they know
    H3045
    not the manner
    H4941
    of the God
    H430
    of the land.
    H776
  27. 27. Then the king
    H4428
    of Assyria
    H804
    commanded,
    H6680
    saying,
    H559
    Carry
    H3212
    thither one
    H259
    of the priests
    H3548
    whom ye brought
    H1540
    from thence; and let them go
    H3212
    and dwell
    H3427
    there, and let him teach
    H3384
    them the manner
    H4941
    of the God
    H430
    of the land.
    H776
  28. 28. Then one
    H259
    of the priests
    H3548
    whom they had carried away
    H1540
    from Samaria
    H8111
    came
    H935
    and dwelt
    H3427
    in Bethel,
    H1008
    and taught
    H3384
    them how they should fear
    H3372
    the LORD.
    H3068
  29. 29. Howbeit every nation
    H1471
    made
    H6213
    gods
    H430
    of their own, and put
    H3240
    them in the houses
    H1004
    of the high places
    H1116
    which the Samaritans
    H8118
    had made,
    H6213
    every nation
    H1471
    in their cities
    H5892
    wherein they dwelt.
    H3427
  30. 30. And the men
    H582
    of Babylon
    H894
    made
    H6213
    Succothbenoth,
    H5524
    and the men
    H582
    of Cuth
    H3575
    made
    H6213
    Nergal,
    H5370
    and the men
    H582
    of Hamath
    H2574
    made
    H6213
    Ashima,
    H807
  31. 31. And the Avites
    H5757
    made
    H6213
    Nibhaz
    H5026
    and Tartak,
    H8662
    and the Sepharvites
    H5616
    burnt
    H8313
    their children
    H1121
    in fire
    H784
    to Adrammelech
    H152
    and Anammelech,
    H6048
    the gods
    H430
    of Sepharvaim.
    H5617
  32. 32. So they feared
    H3373
    the LORD,
    H3068
    and made
    H6213
    unto themselves of the lowest
    H7098
    of them priests
    H3548
    of the high places,
    H1116
    which sacrificed
    H6213
    for them in the houses
    H1004
    of the high places.
    H1116
  33. 33. They feared
    H3373
    the LORD,
    H3068
    and served
    H5647
    their own gods,
    H430
    after the manner
    H4941
    of the nations
    H1471
    whom they carried away
    H1540
    from thence.
  34. 34. Unto this day
    H3117
    they do
    H6213
    after the former
    H7223
    manners:
    H4941
    they fear
    H3373
    not the LORD,
    H3068
    neither do
    H6213
    they after their statutes,
    H2708
    or after their ordinances,
    H4941
    or after the law
    H8451
    and commandment
    H4687
    which the LORD
    H3068
    commanded
    H6680
    the children
    H1121
    of Jacob,
    H3290
    whom he named
    H7760
    H8034
    Israel;
    H3478
  35. 35. With whom the LORD
    H3068
    had made
    H3772
    a covenant,
    H1285
    and charged
    H6680
    them, saying,
    H559
    Ye shall not fear
    H3372
    other
    H312
    gods,
    H430
    nor bow
    H7812
    yourselves to them, nor serve
    H5647
    them, nor sacrifice
    H2076
    to them:
  36. 36. But the LORD,
    H3068
    who brought you up
    H5927
    out of the land
    H776
    of Egypt
    H4714
    with great
    H1419
    power
    H3581
    and a stretched out
    H5186
    arm,
    H2220
    him shall ye fear,
    H3372
    and him shall ye worship,
    H7812
    and to him shall ye do sacrifice.
    H2076
  37. 37. And the statutes,
    H2706
    and the ordinances,
    H4941
    and the law,
