Judgment For Jeroboam Continues

He will uproot Israel from this good land that he gave to their ancestors and he will scatter them beyond the Euphrates River, because they erected their Asherim and provoked the LORD to become angry! 16 He will give up Israel because of Jeroboam's sins that he committed and by which Jeroboam caused Israel to sin."
