He know dis one bulai, cuz he find out Hoshea wen send messenja guys fo make deal wit King So, Egypt side. Ery year befo dat, Hoshea wen pay da Assyria king. But dis year, he no pay um no moa. Cuz a dat, Shalmaneser grab him an put him inside jail.
5Den da Assyria king go attack da whole Israel land. He put his army guys all aroun Samaria town, an no let nobody go inside o come outside fo three year. 6Wen Hoshea stay king fo nine year, da Assyria king take ova Samaria town, an make da Israel peopo go Assyria side fo live. He make some a dem live Halah side, some a dem by da Habor River dat go by Gozan, an da res inside da towns wea da Mede peopo live.
Da Israel Peopo, Prisonas Cuz Dey Wen Do Bad Kine Stuff
7All dat wen happen cuz da Israel peopo show mo respeck fo da odda gods, but not fo Yahweh. Dey wen do bad kine stuff agains dea God Yahweh, no matta he da One wen bring dem outa Egypt befo time, so da Egypt king, da Pharaoh guy, no mo powa ova dem no moa. 8Yahweh wen throw out da diffren peopos from da land befo time, so dat da Israel peopo can come take ova da land. But still yet, dey come jalike dose odda peopos an ack jalike dem. Dey even do da kine tings dat da Israel kings do too. 9Da Israel peopo wen do shame kine stuff an try fo hide um, cuz az not okay wit dea God Yahweh. From da small towns dat ony get one watch tower, to da big towns dat get strong wall aroun dem, da peopo build places on top da hills fo make sacrifice fo da odda gods, nea all dea towns. 10Dey put up big kine stone fo dem pray to um. Dey put poses fo da wahine god Asherah, on top ery high hill an unda ery big tree dat get plenny leaf. 11Dey burn incense on top ery sacrifice place dey make on top da hills, jalike da peopos dat Yahweh wen kick out wen da Israel peopo come dea. Dey do real bad kine stuff fo make Yahweh huhu. 12Dey pray to da idol kine gods, no matta Yahweh wen tell dem, “You guys betta not make lidat.” 13Yahweh wen tell all da guys dat talk fo him, an all da guys dat get dream an know wat goin happen, “Tell da Israel an Judah peopo, ‘Stop doing da bad kine stuff you stay do! Do wat I wen tell you guys fo do, da tings you suppose to do, jalike all my rules tell. Dis da rules I wen give yoa ancesta guys, an dis wat I wen send my guys dat talk fo me fo tell you guys.’-”
14But da peopo, dey make deaf ear an no like lissen. Dey hard head jalike dea ancesta guys, dat no trus dea God Yahweh. 15Dey no do wat God tell um dey suppose to do, an dey no keep da deal dat he wen make wit dea ancesta guys. Wen God tell um bad kine stuff goin happen, dey no lissen. Dey stick wit da idol kine gods dat ony wase time, an dey come jalike dem too. Dey copy da odda peopos aroun dem, no matta Yahweh tell um fo no make lidat!
16Dey no lissen to all da tings dea God Yahweh wen tell um fo do. Dey even make two idol kine gods fo demself from metal, dat look like baby cow. Dey set up poses fo da wahine god Asherah. Dey go down in front da sun an moon an all da stars inside da sky jalike dey gods, an dey let da Ba`al god be dea boss. 17Dey throw dea own boys an girls inside da fire fo make sacrifice. Dey look fo sign bout wat goin happen bumbye, an try fo find out from dea gods wat goin happen. Dey real hard head an do real bad kine stuff, da way Yahweh see um, fo make Yahweh come real huhu.
18So Yahweh wen come real huhu wit da Israel peopo, an cut dem off from him. Ony da Judah ohana he wen keep!
19But even da Judah ohana neva do da tings dea God Yahweh tell um fo do. Dey do da same bad kine stuff dat da Israel peopo wen show dem.
20Az why Yahweh come plenny huhu an cut off da Israel peopo from him. He let da steala guys rip off dea stuffs, all da time till he kick dem outa da land wea he stay.
21Befo time, da Israel peopo north side get dea king guys from da David ohana. But Yahweh cut off da Israel peopo from da David ohana. So den dey make Jeroboam, Nebat boy, dea king. An Jeroboam wen make da Israel peopo no stick wit Yahweh, an make dem do plenny real bad kine stuff. 22Da Israel peopo still stay do all da same bad kine stuff dat Jeroboam do. Dey no change how dey ack, 23till Yahweh kick out da Israel peopo from wea he stay. Befo time, he tell all da talka guys dat work fo him, fo tell um dat goin happen. Dass how come da Israel peopo gotta leave dea land an come prisonas inside da Assyria land. Dey still yet stay ova dea.
Da Assyria Guys Bring In New Peopo Samaria Side
24Da Assyria king wen bring in new peopo from Babylon, Kutah, Avva, Hamat, an Sefarvaim. He make all dem live inside da towns Samaria side wea da Israel peopo wen live befo. Dey take ova Samaria town an make house dea, an dey live inside da odda Israel towns too. 25Da time dose odda peopos start fo live dea, dem too no show respeck fo Yahweh fo notting. So Yahweh put lions in dea wea dey stay, an da lions wen kill some a da peopo.
26Den dey tell da Assyria king dis: “You know da peopos from all ova da place you wen bring in fo dem live inside da Samaria towns? Dey donno wat kine rules da god fo dat land ova dea say dey gotta make shua dey do. So he stay send lions ova dea wea dey stay. An now, da lions stay kill da peopo, cuz no mo nobody dea dat know wat da god fo dat land say dey gotta do.”
27Den da Assyria king tell um fo do dis: “Go get one a da pries guys dat you wen take away from Samaria. Make him an his wife an kids go back an live ova dea. He goin show da peopo dea how fo do wat da god fo dat land say dey gotta do.” 28So one a da pries guys dat da Assyria guys wen take away from Samaria town, wen go back an make house Bethel town. So he da one stay show da peopo ova dea how fo show respeck fo Yahweh.
29But same time, all da diffren peopos dat da Assyria guys bring Israel side, dey still make dea own idol kine gods inside all da towns wea dey live. Dey put dea own gods on top da sacrifice places dat da Samaria peopo wen make befo time on top all da hills. 30Da guys from Babylon side make Succot-Benot kine idol, da guys from Kutah make Nergal kine idol, an da guys from Hamat make Ashima kine idol. 31Da Avva peopo make Nivkaz an Tartak kine idol, an da Sefarvaim peopo burn up dea own kids fo make sacrifice fo Adrammelek an Anammelek, da Sefarvaim gods. 32Da new peopo from da odda places, same ting, dey show respeck fo Yahweh. But dey pick peopo from all ova dea land too, fo make dem da pries guys fo da sacrifice places on top da hills. 33Yahweh, az ony one a da gods dey get respeck fo, but dey get respeck fo dea own gods too. Dass wat all dose peopo wen do inside dea own land, befo da Assyria king make um move house all ova da Israel country.
34Till today, dose odda peopos still do da same ting dey do befo time. Dey no show respeck fo Yahweh fo real kine. Dey no stay do wat God say dey gotta do. Dey no do wat God Da Judge say az right. Dey no stay stick wit da rules dat Yahweh wen give da Jacob ohana, an give um da name Israel. 35Wen Yahweh make da deal wit da Israel peopo long time ago, he tell dem dis: “No go show respeck fo odda kine gods! No go down in front dem! No let dem be yoa boss! No make sacrifice fo dem! 36Me, Yahweh, I da one wen bring you guys ova hea, outa da Egypt land, cuz I get plenny powa, an I wen use um dat time. Me, da one you gotta show respeck fo. You gotta go down in front me, an make sacrifice fo me. 37You guys gotta do wat I say you gotta do. You gotta do wat I say az right, cuz I da Judge. You gotta stick wit da rules an do wat I tell you, you gotta do, an make shua you do eryting dat I wen write down fo you guys, an do um all da time. No go show respeck fo da odda kine gods! 38No go foget da deal I wen make wit you, an no go show respeck fo da odda kine gods! 39But fo me, yoa God Yahweh, you gotta show plenny respeck! Cuz I da One goin get you guys outa trouble from all da peopo dat goin go agains you guys.”
40But da peopo still no like lissen. Dey still stay do all da kine ting dey wen do, by da place dey wen live befo time. 41No matta dese peopo from odda country stay show respeck fo Yahweh, but da same time dey make da idol kine gods dea boss. Jalike today, dea kids an grankids still stay doing jalike dea ancesta guys wen do.
