Moreover, the altar that was at Bethel, and the high place
which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, had made.
] For the worship of the calf there:
both that altar, and the high place, he brake down;
according to an ancient prophecy of the man of God, ( 1 Kings 13:3 ) and of Amos in later times, ( Amos 9:1 )
and burnt the high place, and stamped it small to powder;
that there might be no remains of it:
and burnt the grove;
either the grove of trees on it, or the idol that was in it.
