2 Kings 17:24 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

This conduct excited the anger of God, so that He removed them from His face, and only left the tribe (i.e., the kingdom) of Judah, although Judah also did not keep the commandments of the Lord and walked in the statutes of Israel, and therefore had deserved rejection. 2 Kings 17:19 contains a parenthesis occasioned by וגו שׁבט רק (2 Kings 17:18). The statutes of Israel in which Judah walked are not merely the worship of Baal under the Ahab dynasty, so as to refer only to Joram, Ahaziah, and Ahaz (according to 2 Kings 8:18, 2 Kings 8:27, and 2 Kings 16:3), but also the worship on the high places and worship of idols, which were practised under many of the kings of Judah.
