John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 17:20

And the Lord rejected all the seed of Israel
The ten tribes, with loathing and contempt, and wrote a "loammi" on them, rejected them from being his people, gave them a bill of divorce, and declared them no more under his care and patronage:

and afflicted them;
as he did before he utterly cast them off, as by famine, drought, and pestilence, ( Amos 4:6-11 )

and delivered them into the hands of spoilers;
as, first, into the hands of Hazael and Benhadad, kings of Syria, and then of Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, ( 2 Kings 13:3 2 Kings 13:22 ) ( 15:29 ) ,

until he had cast them out of his sight;
by suffering them, as now, to be carried captive by Shalmaneser, ( 2 Kings 17:6 ) .
