2 Kings 17:15
They rejected the LORD's statutes, the covenant that he had made with their ancestors, and his warnings that he gave them. They pursued meaninglessness and became meaningless themselves as they followed the lifestyles of the nations that surrounded them, a practice that the LORD had warned them not to do.
2 Kings 17:8
and because they were following the rules of the nations whom the LORD had expelled before the Israelis and that the kings of Israel had practiced.
Then you'll learn that I am the LORD, because you didn't live by my statues or obey my ordinances. Instead, you obeyed the ordinances of the nations around you."'"
1 Kings 22:13
Meanwhile, the messenger who had gone off to summon Micaiah advised him, "Look, everything that the other prophets were saying was unanimously favorable to the king. So please, cooperate with them and speak favorably."
"Therefore you are to say to Israel's house, "This is what the Lord GOD says: "Will you defile yourselves like your ancestors did by acting as a prostitute, consistent with their horrible deeds?

"How terrible it will be for you when everyone says nice things about you, because that's the way their ancestors used to treat the false prophets!"
"You stubborn people with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are always opposing the Holy Spirit, just as your ancestors used to do.
You are doing your father's actions." They told him, "We're not illegitimate children. We have one Father, God himself."
