\\INTRODUCTION TO 2 KINGS 17\\

This chapter relates the captivity of the ten tribes of Israel, and how
it came about, \\#2Ki 17:1-6\\, the cause of it, their idolatry, which
they persisted in, notwithstanding the remonstrances made against it,
\\#2Ki 17:7-23\\, in whose stead were placed people from different
parts, who exercised a mixed religion, partly Heathenish, and partly
Israelitish, \\#2Ki 17:24\\.
