2 And he did that vhich ttas evil in the sight of the Lord, but not as the kings of Israel that were before him.

3 ^ Against him came up Shalmaneser king of Assyria, and Hoshea became his servant, and gave him presents.

* And the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea: for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year : therefore the king of Assyria (but him up, and bound him in prison.

5 q Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went: up to Samaria, and besieged it three years.

6 s In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor fa the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.

7. For fe it was, that the children of Israel had sinned against the Lord their God, which had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods,

8 And walked in the statutes of the heathen (whom the Lord cast out from before the children of Israel) and of the kings of Israel, which they had made.

9 And the children of Israel did seecretly these things that very not right against the Lord their God, and they builr.thcm high places in all their cities, frr.n the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.

10 And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and undcjt, every green tree:

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.

12 For they served idols, whereof the Lord had said unto them, Ye (hall noc do this thing.

1 j Yet the Loud testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments, and my statute*, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophet?.

14 Notwithstanding, they would not bear, but haidncd their necks, like to timers, and his testimonies which he testified against them, and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them.

20 And the Lord rejected all the seed M Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, jintil he had cast them out of his sight. I 2 1 For he rent Israel from the house left David, and they made Jeroboam the Son of Nebat king, and Jeroboamdrave Israel from following the Lord, and made them sin a great sin.

22 For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did, they departed not from them:

13 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.

14 1 And the king*of Assyria brought nun from Babylon, and from Cuthab, and from Avah, 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 d welt in the cities thereof.

25 And so it was at me beginning of their dwelling there, that they feared not the Lord; therefore the Lord sent lions among them, which flewfond of "hem.

;« Wherefore they (pake to the king

sent lions among them, and behold, they flay them, because they know not the manner of the God of the land.

27 Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carrythitheroneoftbe 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.

2 8 Then one of the priests whom they had carried away from Samaria, came and dwelt in Beth-el, and taught them how they should fear the Lord.

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.

30 And the men of Babylon made Succoth-benoth, and the men of Cuth made Nergal, and the men of Hama:h made Afhima,

31 And the Avites made Nibhaz and Tartak, and the Sephatvites burnt their children in fire to Adrammelech and Anammelcch the gods of Sepharvaim.

32 So they feared the Lord, and made unto themselves of the lowest of them j priests of the high places, which fierineed for them in the houses of the high places.

33 They feared the Lord and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations, whom they carried away from thence.

34 Unto this day they do after the former manners:they fear not the Lord, j 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 ;

3 J With whom the Lord had made a covenant, and charged them, fating, Ye (hall not fear other gods, nor bow your selves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them:

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 tohimfhallye do sacrifice.

40 Howbeit they did not hearken, but they did after their formermanner.

41 So these nations feared the Lord, and served the graven images, both their children, and their childrens children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day.

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.

6 For he clave to she Lo R cj and departed not from following him,but kept his commandments, which the Lord commanded Moses.

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 nor.

13 T Now in the fourteenth yearofl king Hezekiah, did Sennacherib king of j Assyria come up against all the fenced cities of Judah, and took them.

14 And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria to Lachi(h,(ayihg, I have offended, return from me: that which thou puttest on me, I will bear. And the king of Assyria appointed unto Hezekiah king of Judah, three hundred talents of silver, and thirty talents of gold.

1J And Hezekiah gaveWm all the silver that tsa» sound in the house of the Lord, and in the treasures of the kings house.

16 At that time did Hezekiah cut off the zeldfrem the doors of the temple of | the Lord, and from she pillars which Hezekiah king of Judah had overlaid, and gave it to the king of Assyria.

17 ^ And the king of Assyria sentTartan, and Rabfaris,and Rab-fliakehfrorn LachHh, to king Hezekiah with a great host against Jerusalem: and they went up and came to Jerusalem: 8: when they were come up, they came and stood by the conduit osthc upper pool, which u in rhe high way of the fuller's field.

19 And Rao-fhakeh said unto them, Speak ye now to Hezekiah, Thus faith the great king, the king of Assyria,What confidence it this wherein thou trustest?

20 Thou sayst {but they are to vain words) I have counsel and strength for the war: nowon whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?

14 How then wilt thou turn away the face of one captain of the least of my masters servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?

25 Am I now come up without the LoRDagainst misplace to destroy it? The Lord said to me,Go up against this land, and destroy it.

16 Then said Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and Shebna, and Joah, unro Rab(hakeh, Speak, I pray thee, to thy servants in the Syrian language, (for we understand it) and talk not with us in the Jews language, in the ears of the people that are on the wall.

27 But Rab-shakch said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and to thee, to speak these words ) hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, & drink their own piss with you?

28 Then Rab-shaken stood and cried with a loud voice in the Jews language, and spake, saying, Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria.

29 Thus faith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you, for he shall not be able to deliver you out of his hand:

30 Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the Lord, saying, The Lord will surely deliver us,and this city (hall not be delivered into the band of the king of Assyria.

3<5 But the people held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the kings commandment was, saying, Answer him not.

37 Then came Eliakim the ton of Hi Ik i ah, which war over the houshold, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph the recorder, ro Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rab-shaken.
