Hoshea’s Reign over Israel17:1 In the twelfth year of King Ahaz’s reign over Judah , Hoshea son of Elah became king over Israel . He reigned in Samaria for nine years . 17:2 He did evil in the sight of the Lord , but not to the same degree as the Israelite kings who preceded him. 17:3 King Shalmaneser of Assyria threatened him; Hoshea became his subject and paid him tribute . 17:4 The king of Assyria discovered that Hoshea was planning a revolt . Hoshea had sent messengers to King So of Egypt and had not sent his annual tribute to the king of Assyria . So the king of Assyria arrested him and imprisoned him. 17:5 The king of Assyria marched through the whole land . He attacked Samaria and besieged it for three years . 17:6 In the ninth year of Hoshea’s reign, the king of Assyria captured Samaria and deported the people of Israel to Assyria . He settled them in Halah , along the Habor (the river of Gozan ), and in the cities of the Medes .
A Summary of Israel’s Sinful History17:7 This happened because the Israelites sinned against the Lord their God , who brought them up from the land of Egypt and freed them from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt . They worshiped other gods ; 17:8 they observed the practices of the nations whom the Lord had driven out from before Israel , and followed the example of the kings of Israel . 17:9 The Israelites said things about the Lord their God that were not right . They built high places in all their cities , from the watchtower to the fortress . 17:10 They set up sacred pillars and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every green tree . 17:11 They burned incense on all the high places just like the nations whom the Lord had driven away from before them. Their evil practices made the Lord angry . 17:12 They worshiped the disgusting idols in blatant disregard of the Lord’s command . 17:13 The Lord solemnly warned Israel and Judah through all his prophets and all the seers , “Turn back from your evil ways ; obey my commandments and rules that are recorded in the law . I ordered your ancestors to keep this law and sent my servants the prophets to remind you of its demands.” 17:14 But they did not pay attention and were as stubborn as their ancestors , who had not trusted the Lord their God . 17:15 They rejected his rules , the covenant he had made with their ancestors , and the laws he had commanded them to obey. They paid allegiance to worthless idols , and so became worthless to the Lord. They copied the practices of the surrounding nations in blatant disregard of the Lord’s command . 17:16 They abandoned all the commandments of the Lord their God ; they made two metal calves and an Asherah pole , bowed down to all the stars in the sky , and worshiped Baal . 17:17 They passed their sons and daughters through the fire , and practiced divination and omen reading. They committed themselves to doing evil in the sight of the Lord and made him angry . 17:18 So the Lord was furious with Israel and rejected them; only the tribe of Judah was left . 17:19 Judah also failed to keep the commandments of the Lord their God ; they followed Israel’s example . 17:20 So the Lord rejected all of Israel’s descendants ; he humiliated 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 . Jeroboam drove Israel away from the Lord and encouraged them to commit a serious sin . 17:22 The Israelites followed in the sinful ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat and did not repudiate them. 17:23 Finally the Lord rejected Israel just as he had warned he would do through all his servants the prophets . Israel was deported from its land to Assyria and remains there to this very day .
The King of Assyria Populates Israel with Foreigners17:24 The king of Assyria brought foreigners from Babylon , Cuthah , Avva , Hamath , and Sepharvaim and settled them in the cities of Samaria in place of the Israelites . They took possession of Samaria and lived in its cities . 17:25 When they first moved in, they did not worship the Lord . So the Lord sent lions among them and the lions were killing them. 17:26 The king of Assyria was told , “The nations whom you deported and settled in the cities of Samaria do not know the requirements of the God of the land , so he has sent lions among them. They are killing the people because they do not know the requirements of the God of the land .” 17:27 So the king of Assyria ordered , “Take back one of the priests whom you deported from there . He must settle there and teach them the requirements of the God of the land .” 17:28 So one of the priests whom they had deported from Samaria went back and settled in Bethel . He taught them how to worship the Lord . 17:29 But each of these nations made its own gods and put them in the shrines on the high places that the people of Samaria had made . Each nation did this in the cities where they lived . 17:30 The people from Babylon made Succoth Benoth , the people from Cuth made Nergal , the people from Hamath made Ashima , 17:31 the Avvites made Nibhaz and Tartak , and the Sepharvites burned their sons in the fire as an offering to Adrammelech and Anammelech , the gods of Sepharvaim . 17:32 At the same time they worshiped the Lord . They appointed some of their own people to serve as priests in the shrines on the high places . 17:33 They were worshiping the Lord and at the same time serving their own gods in accordance with the practices of the nations from which which they had been deported . 17:34 To this very day they observe their earlier practices . They do not worship the Lord ; they do not obey the rules , regulations , law , and commandments that the Lord gave the descendants of Jacob , whom he renamed Israel . 17:35 The Lord made an agreement with them and instructed them, “You must not worship other gods . Do not bow down to them, serve them, or offer sacrifices to them. 17:36 Instead you must worship the Lord , who brought you up from the land of Egypt by his great power and military ability ; bow down to him and offer sacrifices to him. 17:37 You must carefully obey at all times the rules , regulations , law , and commandments he wrote down for you. You must not worship other gods . 17:38 You must never forget the agreement I made with you, and you must not worship other gods . 17:39 Instead you must worship the Lord your God ; then he will rescue you from the power of all your enemies .” 17:40 But they pay no attention ; instead they observe their earlier practices . 17:41 These nations are worshiping the Lord and at the same time serving their idols ; their sons and grandsons do just as their fathers have done , to this very day .
