4 An the king of Assyria found conspiracie in Hoshea: for hee had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, as he had done yeere by yeere: therefore the king of Assyria shut him vp, and bound him in prison.
7 For so it was, that the children of Israel had sinned against the Lord their God, which had brought them vp out of the land of Egypt, from vnder the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods,
9 And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right, against the Lord their God: and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen, to the fenced city.
13 Yet the Lord testified against Israel, and against Iudah, by all the Prophets, and by all the Seers, saying, Turne ye from your euill wayes, and keepe my commandements, and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my seruants the Prophets.
15 And they reiected his Statutes, and his Couenant that hee made with their fathers, and his Testimonies which he testified against them, and they followed vanitie, and became vaine, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not doe like them.
17 And they caused their sonnes and their daughters to passe through the fire, and vsed diuination, and inchantments, and sold themselues to doe euill in the sight of the Lord, to prouoke him to anger.
24 ¶ And the King of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Aua, and from Hamath, and from Sepharuaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria, in stead of the children of Israel; and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.
26 Wherefore they spake to the king of Assyria, saying, The nations which thou hast remoued, and placed in the cities of Samaria, know not the maner of the God of the land: therfore he hath sent Lions among them, and beholde, they slay them, because they know not the maner of the God of the land.
34 Unto this day they doe after the former maners: they feare not the Lord, neither doe they after their Statutes, or after their Ordinances, or after the Law and Commaundement which the Lord commaunded the children of Iacob, whom hee named Israel,

DAVID's 2 Kings Chapter 17 comment on 1/15/2013, 3:18pm...
God is telling us how the people of the earth then and now reject his commandments, which lead to eternal life. God also tells us that the people that proclaimed his name served idols, like today. Every person made gods of their own (verse 29, like today), and put them in their houses of high places or places for pagan worship. Verse 32, so the people feared the Lord God through Jesus Christ, and served their own lords, and made unto themselves of the lowest priests..... Verse 33, they feared the Lord and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations/people, whom they carried away from their... Verse 34, unto this day, they do after the former manners! They fear not the Lord, neither do they after His statutes, decrees, judgments, and commands. Or after their ordinances, or the law, or the commandments, which the Lord commanded Jacob whom he named Israel... But like our forefathers, we do always resist the truth, knowledge of the holy ghost, holy spirit, or of God!( Acts 7:51; verse 35, God had made a covenant with them saying, ye/you shall not fear other gods (then explained what it mean to fear other gods), neither bow down to them, nor serve them, neither sacrifice to them! Verse 36, but the Lord God that brought you out of Egypt with a mighty hand and a stretched out arm, him shall you fear, and him shall you serve (or worship), and do sacrifices unto him. Verse 37, and the commandments that he wrote to you, you shall observe to do forever, and you shall not fear other gods.. This is a faithful and truth saying, and a parable from God/heaven above and is put in a earthly saying, but as God spoke to the Israelites long ago, so does he speak to their descendants, which people you are, and in need of repenting, or turning from the ways of the world!
