|2 Kings 17:20-23 |
20 So the LORD rejected all the descendants of Israel and afflicted them and delivered them into the hands of plunderers, until he had cast them out of his sight.
21 For he tore Israel from the house of David; and they made Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, king. And Jeroboam drove Israel away from following the LORD and made them commit a great sin.
22 For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam; they did not depart from them,
23 Until the LORD removed Israel from his sight, as he had warned through all his servants the prophets. So the people of Israel were carried away from their own land into Assyria until this day.
