Bible: 2 Kings 17:16-18

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, 1  and worshiped 2  Baal. 17:17 They passed their sons and daughters through the fire, 3  and practiced divination and omen reading. They committed themselves to doing evil in the sight of the Lord and made him angry. 4 

17:18 So the Lord was furious 5  with Israel and rejected them; 6  only the tribe of Judah was left.
