2 Kings 17:28-34

28So one of the priests whom they had carried away from Samaria came and lived in a  Bethel and taught them how they should fear the  Lord.

29But every nation still made gods of its own and put them b  in the shrines of the high places that the Samaritans had made, every nation in the cities in which they lived. 30The men of c  Babylon made Succoth-benoth, the men of Cuth made Nergal, the men of Hamath made Ashima, 31and the Avvites made Nibhaz and Tartak; and the Sepharvites d  burned their children in the fire to e  Adrammelech and Anammelech, the gods of f  Sepharvaim. 32 g  They also feared the  Lord h  and appointed from among themselves all sorts of people as priests of the high places, who sacrificed for them in the shrines of i  the high places. 33So they feared the  Lord but also served their own gods, after the manner of the nations from among whom they had been carried away.

34To this day they do according to the former manner. They do not fear the  Lord, and they do not follow the statutes or the rules or the law or the commandment that the  Lord commanded the children of Jacob, j  whom he named Israel.
