2 Kings 17:14 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The apostasy of Israel manifested itself in two directions: 1. in their walking in the statutes of the nations who were cut off from before them, instead of in the statutes of Jehovah, as God had commanded (cf. Leviticus 18:4-5, and Leviticus 18:26, Leviticus 20:22-23, etc.; and for the formula וגו הורישׁ אשׁר הגּוים, which occurs repeatedly in our books - e.g., 2 Kings 16:3; 2 Kings 21:2, and 1 Kings 14:24 and 1 Kings 21:26 - compare Deuteronomy 11:23 and Deuteronomy 18:12); and 2. in their walking in the statutes which the kings of Israel had made, i.e., the worship of the calves. עשׂוּ אשׁר: it is evident from the parallel passage, 2 Kings 17:19, that the subject here stands before the relative.
