  1. 2 Kings 23:15 A place for pagan worship

The inhabitants of Samaria fear
Because of the (A)calf[a] of Beth Aven.
For its people mourn for it,
And [b]its priests shriek for it—
Because its (B)glory has departed from it.
The idol also shall be carried to Assyria
As a present for King (C)Jareb.
Ephraim shall receive shame,
And Israel shall be ashamed of his own counsel.

As for Samaria, her king is cut off
Like a twig on the water.
Also the (D)high places of [c]Aven, (E)the sin of Israel,
Shall be destroyed.
The thorn and thistle shall grow on their altars;
(F)They shall say to the mountains, “Cover us!”
And to the hills, “Fall on us!”

And all your fortresses shall be plundered
As Shalman plundered Beth Arbel in the day of battle—
A mother dashed in pieces upon her children.
