2 Kings 17:9-18

MKJV(i) 9 And the sons of Israel secretly did things that were not right against Jehovah their God. And they built high places in all their cities for themselves, from the Watch Tower to the fortified city. 10 And they set up images and Asherahs for themselves in every high hill, and under every green tree. 11 And they burned incense in all the high places, like the nations whom Jehovah had removed from before them; and did evil things to provoke Jehovah to anger. 12 For they served the idols, of which Jehovah had said to them, You shall not do this thing. 13 And Jehovah testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, by all the seers, saying, Turn from your evil ways and keep My commandments, My statutes, according to all the Law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by My servants the prophets. 14 But they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like the neck of their fathers who did not believe in Jehovah their God. 15 And they rejected His statutes and His covenant which He made with their fathers, and His testimonies which He testified against them. And they went after the vain thing, and became vain, and after the nations around them, concerning whom Jehovah had charged them not to do like them. 16 And they left all the commandments of Jehovah their God, and made molten images, two calves, for themselves. And they made an Asherah and worshiped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. 17 And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire. And they used divination and incantations, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of Jehovah, to provoke Him to anger. 18 So Jehovah was very angry with Israel, and turned them away from His face; not one was left, only the tribe of Judah by itself.
