25. But they broke belief with the God of their fathers, and whored after the gods of the folk of the land, whom God had smote before them.

26. So the God of Israel stirred up the ghost of Pul king of Assyria, the ghost of Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria, and he took them into wandering, namely, the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-kindred of Manasseh, and brought them to Halah, Habor, Hara, and the stream Gozan, to this day.
