    17:1 In the twelfth 8147 6240 year 8141 of Ahaz 271 king 4428 of Judah 3063 began Hoshea 1954 the son 1121 of Elah 425 to reign 4427 8804 in Samaria 8111 over Israel 3478 nine 8672 years 8141.

    17:2 And he did 6213 8799 [that which was] evil 7451 in the sight 5869 of the LORD 3068, but not as the kings 4428 of Israel 3478 that were before 6440 him.

    17:3 Against him came up 5927 8804 Shalmaneser 8022 king 4428 of Assyria 804; and Hoshea 1954 became his servant 5650, and gave 7725 8686 him presents 4503.(gave: Heb. rendered)(presents: or, tribute)

    17:4 And the king 4428 of Assyria 804 found 4672 8799 conspiracy 7195 in Hoshea 1954: for he had sent 7971 8804 messengers 4397 to So 5471 king 4428 of Egypt 4714, and brought 5927 8689 no present 4503 to the king 4428 of Assyria 804, as [he had done] year 8141 by year 8141: therefore the king 4428 of Assyria 804 shut him up 6113 8799, and bound 631 8799 him in prison 1004 3608.(present: or, tribute)

    17:5 Then the king 4428 of Assyria 804 came up 5927 8799 throughout all the land 776, and went up 5927 8799 to Samaria 8111, and besieged 6696 8799 it three 7969 years 8141.

    17:6 In the ninth 8671 year 8141 of Hoshea 1954 the king 4428 of Assyria 804 took 3920 8804 Samaria 8111, and carried 1540 0 Israel 3478 away 1540 8686 into Assyria 804, and placed 3427 8686 them in Halah 2477 and in Habor 2249 [by] the river 5104 of Gozan 1470, and in the cities 5892 of the Medes 4074.

    17:7 For [so] it was, that the children 1121 of Israel 3478 had sinned 2398 8804 against the LORD 3068 their God 430, which had brought them up 5927 8688 out of the land 776 of Egypt 4714, from under the hand 3027 of Pharaoh 6547 king 4428 of Egypt 4714, and had feared 3372 8799 other 312 gods 430,

    17:8 And walked 3212 8799 in the statutes 2708 of the heathen 1471, whom the LORD 3068 cast out 3423 8689 from before 6440 the children 1121 of Israel 3478, and of the kings 4428 of Israel 3478, which they had made 6213 8804.

    17:9 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 did secretly 2644 8762 [those] things 1697 that [were] not right against the LORD 3068 their God 430, and they built 1129 8799 them high places 1116 in all their cities 5892, from the tower 4026 of the watchmen 5341 8802 to the fenced 4013 city 5892.

    17:10 And they set them up 5324 8686 images 4676 and groves 842 in every high 1364 hill 1389, and under every green 7488 tree 6086:(images: Heb. statues)

    17:11 And there they burnt incense 6999 8762 in all the high places 1116, as [did] the heathen 1471 whom the LORD 3068 carried away 1540 8689 before 6440 them; and wrought 6213 8799 wicked 7451 things 1697 to provoke the LORD 3068 to anger 3707 8687:

    17:12 For they served 5647 8799 idols 1544, whereof the LORD 3068 had said 559 8804 unto them, Ye shall not do 6213 8799 this thing 1697.

    17:13 Yet the LORD 3068 testified 5749 8686 against Israel 3478, and against Judah 3063, by 3027 all the prophets 5030, [and by] all the seers 2374, saying 559 8800, Turn 7725 8798 ye from your evil 7451 ways 1870, and keep 8104 8798 my commandments 4687 [and] my statutes 2708, according to all the law 8451 which I commanded 6680 8765 your fathers 1, and which I sent 7971 8804 to you by 3027 my servants 5650 the prophets 5030.(by: Heb. by the hand of)

    17:14 Notwithstanding they would not hear 8085 8804, but hardened 7185 8686 their necks 6203, like to the neck 6203 of their fathers 1, that did not believe 539 8689 in the LORD 3068 their God 430.

    17:15 And they rejected 3988 8799 his statutes 2706, and his covenant 1285 that he made 3772 8804 with their fathers 1, and his testimonies 5715 which he testified 5749 8689 against them; and they followed 3212 8799 310 vanity 1892, and became vain 1891 8799, and went after 310 the heathen 1471 that [were] round about 5439 them, [concerning] whom the LORD 3068 had charged 6680 8765 them, that they should not do 6213 8800 like them.

    17:16 And they left 5800 8799 all the commandments 4687 of the LORD 3068 their God 430, and made 6213 8799 them molten images 4541, [even] two 8147 calves 5695, and made 6213 8799 a grove 842, and worshipped 7812 8691 all the host 6635 of heaven 8064, and served 5647 8799 Baal 1168.

    17:17 And they caused their sons 1121 and their daughters 1323 to pass 5674 8686 through the fire 784, and used 7080 8799 divination 7081 and enchantments 5172 8762, and sold 4376 8691 themselves to do 6213 8800 evil 7451 in the sight 5869 of the LORD 3068, to provoke him to anger 3707 8687.

    17:18 Therefore the LORD 3068 was very 3966 angry 599 8691 with Israel 3478, and removed 5493 8686 them out of his sight 6440: there was none left 7604 8738 but the tribe 7626 of Judah 3063 only.

    17:19 Also Judah 3063 kept 8104 8804 not the commandments 4687 of the LORD 3068 their God 430, but walked 3212 8799 in the statutes 2708 of Israel 3478 which they made 6213 8804.

    17:20 And the LORD 3068 rejected 3988 8799 all the seed 2233 of Israel 3478, and afflicted 6031 8762 them, and delivered 5414 8799 them into the hand 3027 of spoilers 8154 8802, until he had cast 7993 8689 them out of his sight 6440.

    17:21 For he rent 7167 8804 Israel 3478 from the house 1004 of David 1732; and they made Jeroboam 3379 the son 1121 of Nebat 5028 king 4427 8686: and Jeroboam 3379 drave 5080 8686 8675 5077 8686 Israel 3478 from following 310 the LORD 3068, and made them sin 2398 8689 a great 1419 sin 2401.

    17:22 For the children 1121 of Israel 3478 walked 3212 8799 in all the sins 2403 of Jeroboam 3379 which he did 6213 8804; they departed 5493 8804 not from them;

    17:23 Until the LORD 3068 removed 5493 8689 Israel 3478 out of his sight 6440, as he had said 1696 8765 by 3027 all his servants 5650 the prophets 5030. So was Israel 3478 carried away 1540 8799 out of their own land 127 to Assyria 804 unto this day 3117.

    17:24 And the king 4428 of Assyria 804 brought 935 8686 [men] from Babylon 894, and from Cuthah 3575, and from Ava 5755, and from Hamath 2574, and from Sepharvaim 5617, and placed 3427 8686 [them] in the cities 5892 of Samaria 8111 instead of the children 1121 of Israel 3478: and they possessed 3423 8799 Samaria 8111, and dwelt 3427 8799 in the cities 5892 thereof.

    17:25 And [so] it was at the beginning 8462 of their dwelling 3427 8800 there, [that] they feared 3372 8804 not the LORD 3068: therefore the LORD 3068 sent 7971 8762 lions 738 among them, which slew 2026 8802 [some] of them.

    17:26 Wherefore they spake 559 8799 to the king 4428 of Assyria 804, saying 559 8800, The nations 1471 which thou hast removed 1540 8689, and placed 3427 8686 in the cities 5892 of Samaria 8111, know 3045 8804 not the manner 4941 of the God 430 of the land 776: therefore he hath sent 7971 8762 lions 738 among them, and, behold, they slay 4191 8688 them, because they know 3045 8802 not the manner 4941 of the God 430 of the land 776.

    17:27 Then the king 4428 of Assyria 804 commanded 6680 8762, saying 559 8800, Carry 3212 8685 thither one 259 of the priests 3548 whom ye brought 1540 8689 from thence; and let them go 3212 8799 and dwell 3427 8799 there, and let him teach 3384 8686 them the manner 4941 of the God 430 of the land 776.

    17:28 Then one 259 of the priests 3548 whom they had carried away 1540 8689 from Samaria 8111 came 935 8799 and dwelt 3427 8799 in Bethel 1008, and taught 3384 8688 them how they should fear 3372 8799 the LORD 3068.

    17:29 Howbeit every nation 1471 made 6213 8802 gods 430 of their own, and put 3240 8686 [them] in the houses 1004 of the high places 1116 which the Samaritans 8118 had made 6213 8804, every nation 1471 in their cities 5892 wherein they dwelt 3427 8802.

    17:30 And the men 582 of Babylon 894 made 6213 8804 Succothbenoth 5524, and the men 582 of Cuth 3575 made 6213 8804 Nergal 5370, and the men 582 of Hamath 2574 made 6213 8804 Ashima 807,

    17:31 And the Avites 5757 made 6213 8804 Nibhaz 5026 and Tartak 8662, and the Sepharvites 5616 burnt 8313 8802 their children 1121 in fire 784 to Adrammelech 152 and Anammelech 6048, the gods 430 of Sepharvaim 5617.

    17:32 So they feared 3373 the LORD 3068, and made 6213 8799 unto themselves of the lowest 7098 of them priests 3548 of the high places 1116, which sacrificed 6213 8802 for them in the houses 1004 of the high places 1116.

    17:33 They feared 3373 the LORD 3068, and served 5647 8802 their own gods 430, after the manner 4941 of the nations 1471 whom they carried away 1540 8689 from thence.(whom…: or, who carried them away from thence)

    17:34 Unto this day 3117 they do 6213 8802 after the former 7223 manners 4941: they fear 3373 not the LORD 3068, neither do 6213 8802 they after their statutes 2708, or after their ordinances 4941, or after the law 8451 and commandment 4687 which the LORD 3068 commanded 6680 8765 the children 1121 of Jacob 3290, whom he named 7760 8804 8034 Israel 3478;

    17:35 With whom the LORD 3068 had made 3772 8799 a covenant 1285, and charged 6680 8762 them, saying 559 8800, Ye shall not fear 3372 8799 other 312 gods 430, nor bow 7812 8691 yourselves to them, nor serve 5647 8799 them, nor sacrifice 2076 8799 to them:

    17:36 But the LORD 3068, who brought you up 5927 8689 out of the land 776 of Egypt 4714 with great 1419 power 3581 and a stretched out 5186 8803 arm 2220, him shall ye fear 3372 8799, and him shall ye worship 7812 8691, and to him shall ye do sacrifice 2076 8799.

    17:37 And the statutes 2706, and the ordinances 4941, and the law 8451, and the commandment 4687, which he wrote 3789 8804 for you, ye shall observe 8104 8799 to do 6213 8800 for evermore 3117; and ye shall not fear 3372 8799 other 312 gods 430.

    17:38 And the covenant 1285 that I have made 3772 8804 with you ye shall not forget 7911 8799; neither shall ye fear 3372 8799 other 312 gods 430.

    17:39 But the LORD 3068 your God 430 ye shall fear 3372 8799; and he shall deliver 5337 8686 you out of the hand 3027 of all your enemies 341 8802.

    17:40 Howbeit they did not hearken 8085 8804, but they did 6213 8802 after their former 7223 manner 4941.

    17:41 So these nations 1471 feared 3373 the LORD 3068, and served 5647 8802 their graven images 6456, both their children 1121, and their children's 1121 children 1121: as did 6213 8804 their fathers 1, so do 6213 8802 they unto this day 3117.
