Deuteronomy 9:21; 1 Kings 12:29–30; Hosea 10:8

29 And he set one in Bethel, and the other he put in Dan. 30 Then fthis thing became a sin, for the people went as far as Dan to be before one.1

The high places of xAven, dthe sin of Israel,

shall be destroyed.

eThorn and thistle shall grow up

on their altars,

and fthey shall say to the mountains, Cover us,

and to the hills, Fall on us.
