1 Kings 18:21; 2 Kings 17:33; 2 Kings 17:41

21 And Elijah came near to all the people and said, How long rwill you go limping between two different opinions? sIf the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him. And the people did not answer him a word.


33 So they feared the Lord but also served their own gods, after the manner of the nations from among whom they had been carried away.


41 gSo these nations feared the Lord and also served their carved images. Their children did likewise, and their children's childrenas their fathers did, so they do to this day.
