2KI_17:11 And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as [did] the heathen whom the LORD carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke the LORD to anger:
2KI_17:22 For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they departed not from them;
2KI_17:23 Until the LORD removed Israel out of his sight, as he had said by all his servants the prophets. So was Israel carried away out of their own land to Assyria unto this day.
2KI_17:24 And the king of Assyria brought [men] from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed [them] in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.
2KI_17:25 And [so] it was at the beginning of their dwelling there, [that] they feared not the LORD: therefore the LORD sent lions among them, which slew [some] of them.
2KI_17:26 Wherefore they spake to the king of Assyria, saying, The nations which thou hast removed, and placed in the cities of Samaria, know not the manner of the God of the land: therefore he hath sent lions among them, and, behold, they slay them, because they know not the manner of the God of the land.
2KI_17:27 Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carry thither one of the priests whom ye brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God of the land.
2KI_17:28 Then one of the priests whom they had carried away from Samaria came and dwelt in Bethel, and taught them how they should fear the LORD.
2KI_17:29 Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put [them] in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt.
2KI_17:30 And the men of Babylon made Succothbenoth, and the men of Cuth made Nergal, and the men of Hamath made Ashima,
2KI_17:31 And the Avites made Nibhaz and Tartak, and the Sepharvites burnt their children in fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech, the gods of Sepharvaim.
2KI_17:32 So they feared the LORD, and made unto themselves of the lowest of them priests of the high places, which sacrificed for them in the houses of the high places.
2KI_17:33 They feared the LORD, and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence.
2KI_17:34 Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not the LORD, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the LORD commanded the children of Jacob, whom he named Israel;
2KI_17:35 With whom the LORD had made a covenant, and charged them, saying, Ye shall not fear other gods, nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them:
2KI_17:36 But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice.
2KI_17:37 And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods.
2KI_17:38 And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods.
2KI_17:39 But the LORD your God ye shall fear; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies.
2KI_17:40 Howbeit they did not hearken, but they did after their former manner.
2KI_17:41 So these nations feared the LORD, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children's children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day.
2KI_18:1 Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, [that] Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign.
2KI_18:2 Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also [was] Abi, the daughter of Zachariah.
2KI_18:3 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did.
2KI_18:5 He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor [any] that were before him.
2KI_18:6 For he clave to the LORD, [and] departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.
2KI_18:7 And the LORD was with him; [and] he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.
2KI_18:8 He smote the Philistines, [even] unto Gaza, and the borders thereof, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.
2KI_18:9 And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Hezekiah, which [was] the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, [that] Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against Samaria, and besieged it.
2KI_18:10 And at the end of three years they took it: [even] in the sixth year of Hezekiah, that [is] the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken.
2KI_18:11 And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor [by] the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes:
2KI_18:12 Because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed his covenant, [and] all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear [them], nor do [them].
2KI_18:13 Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah did Sennacherib king of Assyria come up against all the fenced cities of Judah, and took them.
2KI_18:14 And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria to Lachish, saying, I have offended; return from me: that which thou puttest on me will I bear. And the king of Assyria appointed unto Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.
2KI_18:15 And Hezekiah gave [him] all the silver that was found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king's house.
2KI_18:16 At that time did Hezekiah cut off [the gold from] the doors of the temple of the LORD, and [from] the pillars which Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid, and gave it to the king of Assyria.
2KI_18:17 And the king of Assyria sent Tartan and Rabsaris and Rabshakeh from Lachish to king Hezekiah with a great host against Jerusalem. And they went up and came to Jerusalem. And when they were come up, they came and stood by the conduit of the upper pool, which [is] in the highway of the fuller's field.
ACT_7:40 Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for [as for] this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
ACT_7:41 And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.
ACT_7:42 Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices [by the space of] forty years in the wilderness?
ACT_7:43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
ACT_7:44 Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen.
ACT_7:45 Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;
ACT_7:46 Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
ACT_7:47 But Solomon built him an house.
ACT_7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
ACT_7:49 Heaven [is] my throne, and earth [is] my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what [is] the place of my rest?
ACT_7:50 Hath not my hand made all these things?
ACT_7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers [did], so [do] ye.
ACT_7:52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:
ACT_7:53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept [it].
ACT_7:54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with [their] teeth.
ACT_7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
ACT_7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
ACT_7:57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,
ACT_7:58 And cast [him] out of the city, and stoned [him]: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.
ACT_7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon [God], and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
ACT_7:60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
PSA_78:6 That the generation to come might know [them, even] the children [which] should be born; [who] should arise and declare [them] to their children:
PSA_78:7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
PSA_78:8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation [that] set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
PSA_78:9 The children of Ephraim, [being] armed, [and] carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
PSA_78:10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
PSA_78:11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had showed them.
PRO_17:3 The fining pot [is] for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.
PRO_17:4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; [and] a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.
PRO_17:5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: [and] he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
LUKJ_7:48 Thy sins are forgiven.
LUKJ_7:50 Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
LUKJ_8:5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.
LUKJ_8:6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.
LUKJ_8:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.
LUKJ_8:8 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
LUKJ_8:10 Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.
