2 Kings 17:21 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"They followed vanity and became vain:" verbatim as in Jeremiah 2:5.

A description of the worthlessness of their whole life and aim with regard to the most important thing, namely, their relation to God. Whatever man sets before him as the object of his life apart from God is הבל (cf. Deuteronomy 32:21) and idolatry, and leads to worthlessness, to spiritual and moral corruption (Romans 1:21). "And (walked) after the nations who surrounded them," i.e., the heathen living near them. The concluding words of the verse have the ring of Leviticus 18:3.
