The new inhabitants of Samaria, after the Israelites had been carried away into Assyria, soon became a mixed nation--partly composed of Israeli blood and partly of many other tribes, all of which were pagan (2 Kings 17:24). Consequently, their religion became a strange mixture of worship of Jehovah and of various pagan gods. These people became the Samaritans of New Testament times, despised by their Jewish half-brothers. Except for scattered individuals, the exiled Israelites never returned to their homeland.
