1 The word of Yahweh came to Jehu son of Hanani against Baasha:
2Chr 19:2 2Chr 20:34 1Kgs 16:7 2Chr 16:7-10 1Kgs 15:33
2 'I raised you from the dust and made you leader of my people Israel, but you have followed Jeroboam's example and led my people Israel into sins which provoke my anger.
1Kgs 14:7 1Kgs 15:34 1Sam 2:8 Ps 113:7-8 1Kgs 13:33-34 1Kgs 14:16 1Kgs 15:26
3 Now I shall sweep away Baasha and his House; I shall make your House like the House of Jeroboam son of Nebat.
1Kgs 14:10 1Kgs 15:29-30 1Kgs 16:11-12 1Kgs 21:21-24 Isa 66:24 Jer 22:19
4 Those of Baasha's family who die in the city, the dogs will eat; and those who die in the open country, the birds of the air will eat.'
1Kgs 14:11 1Kgs 21:24
5 The rest of the history of Baasha, his career, his valour, is this not recorded in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel?
1Kgs 14:19 1Kgs 15:31 2Chr 16:1-6
6 When Baasha fell asleep with his ancestors, he was buried in Tirzah; his son Elah succeeded him.
1Kgs 14:17 1Kgs 15:21 1Kgs 14:20 1Kgs 15:25 1Kgs 16:8 1Kgs 16:13-14
7 Furthermore, the word of Yahweh was delivered through the prophet Jehu son of Hanani against Baasha and his House, first because of the many ways in which he had displeased Yahweh, provoking him to anger by his actions and becoming like the House of Jeroboam; secondly because he had destroyed that House.
1Kgs 14:14 Hos 1:4 Isa 2:8 Ps 115:4 1Kgs 15:27-29 1Kgs 16:1-2 2Kgs 10:30-31
8 In the twenty-sixth year of Asa king of Judah, Elah son of Baasha became king of Israel at Tirzah, for two years.
9 Zimri, one of his officers, captain of half his chariotry, plotted against him. While he was at Tirzah, drinking himself senseless in the house of Arza who was master of the palace in Tirzah,
1Kgs 18:3 Gen 24:2 Gen 39:4 1Kgs 15:27 1Kgs 20:16 1Sam 25:36-38 2Kgs 9:14
10 Zimri came in, struck him down and killed him in the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and succeeded him.
11 On his accession, as soon as he was seated on the throne, he butchered Baasha's entire family, not leaving him one manjack of them alive, neither relative nor friend.
1Kgs 15:29 1Kgs 16:3 1Sam 25:22 1Kgs 14:10 1Sam 25:34 Judg 1:7
12 Zimri destroyed the whole House of Baasha, in accordance with the word which Yahweh had spoken against Baasha through the prophet Jehu,
1Kgs 16:1 1Kgs 14:18 1Kgs 16:3 1Kgs 16:7 2Chr 10:15 2Kgs 14:25 Prov 26:6
13 because of all the sins of Baasha and his son Elah into which they had led Israel, provoking the anger of Yahweh, God of Israel, with their worthless idols.
Deut 32:21 1Kgs 15:30 1Sam 12:21 Isa 41:29 1Cor 8:4 1Cor 10:19-20 2Kgs 17:15
14 The history of Elah, his entire career, is this not recorded in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel?
15 In the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, Zimri became king for seven days, at Tirzah. The people were then encamped in front of Gibbethon, a Philistine town.
1Kgs 15:27 Josh 19:44 1Kgs 16:8 2Kgs 9:31 Job 20:5 Josh 21:23 Ps 37:35
16 When news reached the camp of how Zimri had not only plotted against but actually killed the king, all Israel proclaimed the army commander Omri as king of Israel in the camp that very day.
1Kgs 16:30 2Chr 22:2 2Kgs 8:26 Mic 6:16
17 Omri, and all Israel with him, raised the siege of Gibbethon and laid siege to Tirzah.
2Kgs 6:24-25 2Kgs 18:9-12 2Kgs 25:1-4 Judg 9:45 Judg 9:50 Judg 9:56-57 Luke 19:43-44
18 When Zimri saw that the town had been captured, he went into the keep of the royal palace, burned the palace over his own head, and died.
2Sam 17:23 1Sam 31:4-5 Job 2:9-10 Judg 9:54 Matt 27:5
19 This was because of the sin which he had committed in doing what is displeasing to Yahweh, by copying the example of Jeroboam and the sin into which he had led Israel.
1Kgs 15:26 1Kgs 12:28 1Kgs 14:16 1Kgs 15:34 1Kgs 15:30 1Kgs 16:7 1Kgs 16:13
20 The rest of the history of Zimri and of his conspiracy, is this not recorded in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel?
1Kgs 16:5 1Kgs 16:14 1Kgs 16:27 1Kgs 14:19 1Kgs 15:31 1Kgs 22:39
21 The people of Israel then split into two factions: one half following Tibni son of Ginath to make him king, the other half following Omri.
1Cor 1:12-13 1Kgs 15:25 1Kgs 15:28 1Kgs 16:8 1Kgs 16:29 Eph 4:3-5 Isa 9:18-21
22 But the faction of Omri proved stronger than that of Tibni son of Ginath; thus Tibni lost his life and Omri became king.
23 In the thirty-first year of Asa king of Judah, Omri became king of Israel and reigned for twelve years. He reigned for six years at Tirzah.
1Kgs 15:21 1Kgs 16:8 1Kgs 16:29 2Chr 22:2
24 Then for two talents of silver he bought the hill of Samaria from Shemer and on it built a town which he named Samaria after Shemer who had owned the hill.
1Kgs 13:32 1Kgs 16:28-29 1Kgs 16:32 1Kgs 18:2 1Kgs 20:1 1Kgs 22:37 2Kgs 17:1
25 Omri did what is displeasing to Yahweh, and was worse than all his predecessors.
Mic 6:16 1Kgs 14:9 1Kgs 16:30-31 1Kgs 16:33
26 In every way he copied the example of Jeroboam son of Nebat and the sins into which he had led Israel, provoking the anger of Yahweh, God of Israel, with their worthless idols.
1Kgs 16:19 1Kgs 16:13 1Kgs 12:26-33 1Kgs 13:33-34 1Kgs 16:2 1Kgs 16:7 Acts 14:15
27 The rest of the history of Omri, his career, his valour, is this not recorded in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel?
1Kgs 15:31 1Kgs 16:5 1Kgs 16:14 1Kgs 16:20
28 When Omri fell asleep with his ancestors, he was buried in Samaria; his son Ahab succeeded him.
29 Ahab son of Omri became king of Israel in the thirty-eighth year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned over Israel for twenty-two years in Samaria.
30 Ahab son of Omri did what is displeasing to Yahweh, and was worse than all his predecessors.
1Kgs 16:25 1Kgs 14:9 1Kgs 21:25 1Kgs 16:31 1Kgs 16:33 2Kgs 3:2
31 The least that he did was to follow the sinful example of Jeroboam son of Nebat: he married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians, and then proceeded to serve Baal and worship him.
2Kgs 17:16 2Kgs 10:18 Judg 18:7 1Kgs 21:25-26 Deut 7:3-4 Judg 2:11 1Kgs 11:1-2
32 He erected an altar to him in the temple of Baal which he built in Samaria.
2Kgs 10:21 2Kgs 10:26-27
33 Ahab also put up a sacred pole and committed other crimes as well, provoking the anger of Yahweh, God of Israel, more than all the kings of Israel his predecessors.
2Kgs 13:6 1Kgs 21:25 2Kgs 21:3 Exod 34:13 1Kgs 14:9 1Kgs 16:29-30 1Kgs 21:19
34 It was in his time that Hiel of Bethel rebuilt Jericho. Laying its foundations cost him his eldest son Abiram and erecting its gates cost him his youngest son Segub, just as Yahweh had foretold through Joshua son of Nun.
