*Exact dates are uncertain and may vary

The kings of the northern kingdom of Israel were all evil. They followed in the ways of the first king Jeroboam I who was an idol worshipper. God finally cast them out of His sight, the Assyrians deported them away in 722 BC.

2 Kings 17:13 - Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, [and by] all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments [and] my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.
