Until the Lord removed Israel out of his sight
Suffered them to be carried captive into the land of Assyria:
as he had said by all his servants the prophets;
by Hosea, Amos, Micah, and others; see their prophecies, and also ( 1 Kings 13:32 ) ( 1 Kings 14:15 1 Kings 14:16 ) ,
so was Israel carried away out of their own land to Assyria, unto this
the time of the writing this book; nor have they returned unto our days, nearly 2,800 years later.
