28 - Ahaz ling 16 years. Sacrifices children to Molech. Israel and Syria conquer them. Ahaz sacrifices to the gods of the nations that conquer him. He closes the temple.
16-17 Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel nine years. Assyria conquers for good, because of their sin. Judah remains, though are sinning like Israel. After exile, God forces Israel to teach Gentiles His ways, though they don't believe and the Gentiles don't stop worshiping their own gods - syncretism. What a mess. These were the Samaritans of Jesus' day.
