Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 17:29

_ _ Howbeit every nation made gods of their own — These Assyrian colonists, however, though instructed in the worship, and acknowledging the being of the God of Israel, did not suppose Him to be the only God. Like other heathens, they combined His worship with that of their own gods; and as they formed a promiscuous society from different nations or provinces, a variety of idols was acknowledged among them.
