 Commentary and Observations from Tom Ascol
Founders Blog

I was struck again today by the simple, devastating indictment that 2 Kings 17:33 makes against generic religion:

So they feared the LORD but also served their own gods.

This brief summary describes the mixed multitude of Assyrians who were settled in the fallen nation of Israel. Because of God's judgment on them and their pagan worship, the king of Assyria sent a priest from Israel to "teach them the law of the god of the land" (v. 27). So that priest settled in Bethel and "taught them how they should fear the LORD" (v. 28).

Featured Hymn

Lord, Set a Watch to Guard My Soul

(Psalm 141:3-4)

1.   Lord, set a watch to guard my soul,
         Teach me Your Word and make me wise,
      And let no sinful thoughts take hold,
         Nor evil passions sprout and rise.
      The seeds for ev'ry heinous sin
         Within my carnal nature lie,
      But for God's grace I'd surely fall,
         But for His mercy I would die.
