2 Kings 21:10
The LORD said through his servants the prophets:
If a ruler listens to lies, all his officials become wicked.
"Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: You have been more unruly than the nations around you and have not followed my decrees or kept my laws. You have not even conformed to the standards of the nations around you.
You not only followed their ways and copied their detestable practices, but in all your ways you soon became more depraved than they.
