So they feared the Lord
Worshipped the God of Israel in the manner they were taught:
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;
these were made after the manner of Jeroboam's priests, ( 1 Kings 12:31 ) , and were to sacrifice to the God of Israel in the high places, and temples built there; for otherwise they had, no doubt, priests of their own to sacrifice to their gods, and which they brought with them.
