|2 Kings 17:13-15 |
13 Yet the LORD warned Israel and Judah through all the prophets and all the seers, saying, "Turn from your evil ways and keep my commands and my statutes, according to all the law that I commanded your forefathers and sent to you by my servants the prophets."
14 Nevertheless they would not listen, but stiffened their necks, like the necks of their forefathers who did not believe in the LORD their God.
15 They rejected his statutes and his covenant that he had made with their forefathers, and his warnings that he had given them. They followed vain [false] idols and they became false themselves. And they went after the heathen who were all around them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do as they did.
