They feared the LORD, and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence.
Unto this day they do after the formermanners: they fear not the LORD, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the LORDcommanded the children of Jacob, whom he namedIsrael;35
With whom the LORD had made a covenant, and charged them, saying , Ye shall not fearothergods, nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them:
But the LORD, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with greatpower and a stretched outarm, him shall ye fear , and him shall ye worship , and to him shall ye do sacrifice .
And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fearothergods.38
And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget ; neither shall ye fearothergods.39
But the LORD your God ye shall fear ; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies .
Howbeit they did not hearken , but they did after their formermanner.41
So these nationsfeared the LORD, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children'schildren: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day.
