I Kings 13:1-4 – “And behold, a man of Yahweh came from Judah to Beth El by the word of Yahweh… saying, ‘This is the sign that Yahweh has spoken. The altar will be split apart and the ashes upon it shall be poured out… The men of Yahweh cried out against the altar in Beth El.’”

Exalting the wrong house(s) is wickedness to the Almighty.
I Kings 13:29-30 – “And he (the wicked Rehoboam) set up one (altar) in Beth El, and the other he set up in Dan. This thing became a sin…”

Yahweh forbids all worship done in Beth-El.

II Kings 23:15 – “Even the altar that was at Beth El… caused Israyl to sin… he broke.”

Sin alone was the acts at Beth El.

II Kings 23:19 – “Yoshiyah (Josiah) took away all of the shrines with the high places… as he had done in Beth El.”

Beth El was the place of idolatry.

Yeremyah (Jeremiah) 48:13 – “Moab shall be ashamed of Chemosh, just as the house of Israyl was ashamed of Beth El, their confidence.”

Belief in personal strength and might (el), will always bring shame.

Hosheyah (Hosea) 10:15 – “So it shall be done to you, O Beth El, because of your great wickedness.”

Beth El and wickedness go hand in hand.

Amosyah (Amos) 3:14 – “…also I will visit the altars of Beth El, and the horns of the altar will be cut off and fall to the ground.”

Self-exaltations of personal strength and might will always go void.

Amosyah 5:5 – “But do not seek Beth El…Beth El will come to an end.”
