1 Factus est autem sermo Domini ad Iehu filium Hanani contra Baasa dicens:
16:2" Pro eo quod exaltavi te de pulvere et posui te ducem super populum meum Israel, tu autem ambulasti in via Ieroboam et peccare fecisti populum meum Israel, ut me irritares in peccatis eorum,
3 ecce ego demetam posteriora Baasa et posteriora domus eius et faciam domum tuam sicut domum Ieroboam filii Nabat.
4 Qui mortuus fuerit de Baasa in civitate, comedent eum canes; et, qui mortuus fuerit ex eo in agro, comedent eum volucres caeli".
5 Reliqua autem gestorum Baasa et quaecumque fecit et fortitudo eius, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
6 Dormivit ergo Baasa cum patribus suis sepultusque est in Thersa; et regnavit Ela filius eius pro eo.
7 Sed et in manu Iehu filii Hanani prophetae verbum Domini factum est ad Baasa et ad domum eius propter omne malum, quod fecerat coram Domino ad irritandum eum in operibus manuum suarum, ut fieret sicut domus Ieroboam, eo quod percussisset eam.
8 Anno vicesimo sexto Asa regis Iudae regnavit Ela filius Baasa super Israel in Thersa duobus annis.
9 Et rebellavit contra eum servus suus Zamri dux mediae partis curruum. Erat autem Ela in Thersa bibens et temulentus in domo Arsa praefecti domus in Thersa;
10 irruens ergo Zamri percussit et occidit eum anno vicesimo septimo Asa regis Iudae et regnavit pro eo.
11 Cumque regnasset et sedisset super solium eius, percussit omnem domum Baasa et non dereliquit ex eo quidquid masculini sexus et propinquos et amicos eius.
12 Delevitque Zamri omnem domum Baasa iuxta verbum Domini, quod locutus fuerat ad Baasa in manu Iehu prophetae,
13 propter universa peccata Baasa et peccata Ela filii eius, qui peccaverunt et peccare fecerunt Israel provocantes Dominum, Deum Israel, in vanitatibus suis.
14 Reliqua autem gestorum Ela et omnia, quae fecit, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
15 Anno vicesimo septimo Asa regis Iudae regnavit Zamri septem diebus in Thersa. Porro exercitus obsidebat Gebbethon urbem Philisthinorum.
16 Cumque audisset rebellasse Zamri et occidisse regem, fecit sibi regem omnis Israel Amri, qui erat princeps militiae super Israel in die illa in castris.
17 Ascendit ergo Amri et omnis Israel cum eo de Gebbethon, et obsidebant Thersa;
18 videns autem Zamri quod expugnanda esset civitas, ingressus est palatium et succendit super se domum regiam et mortuus est igne
19 in peccatis suis, quae peccaverat faciens malum coram Domino et ambulans in via Ieroboam et in peccato eius, quo fecit peccare Israel.
20 Reliqua autem gestorum Zamri et rebellio, quam fecit, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
21 Tunc divisus est populus Israel in duas partes: media pars populi sequebatur Thebni filium Gineth, ut constitueret eum regem, et media pars Amri.
22 Praevaluit autem populus, qui erat cum Amri, populo, qui sequebatur Thebni filium Gineth; mortuusque est Thebni, et regnavit Amri.
23 Anno tricesimo primo Asa regis Iudae regnavit Amri super Israel duodecim annis; in Thersa regnavit sex annis.
24 Emitque montem Samariae a Somer duobus talentis argenti et aedificavit eum et vocavit nomen civitatis, quam exstruxerat, nomine Somer domini montis Samariae.
25 Fecit autem Amri malum in conspectu Domini et operatus est nequiter super omnes, qui fuerunt ante eum;
26 ambulavitque in omni via Ieroboam filii Nabat et in peccato eius, quo peccare fecerat Israel, ut irritaret Dominum, Deum Israel, in vanitatibus suis.
27 Reliqua autem gestorum Amri et proelia eius, quae fortiter gessit, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
28 Et dormivit Amri cum patribus suis et sepultus est in Samaria; regnavitque Achab filius eius pro eo.
29 Achab vero filius Amri regnavit super Israel anno tricesimo octavo Asa regis Iudae; et regnavit Achab filius Amri super Israel in Samaria viginti et duobus annis.
30 Et fecit Achab filius Amri malum in conspectu Domini super omnes, qui fuerunt ante eum.
31 Nec suffecit ei, ut ambularet in peccatis Ieroboam filii Nabat; insuper duxit uxorem Iezabel filiam Ethbaal regis Sidoniorum et abiit et servivit Baal et adoravit eum.
32 Et posuit aram Baal in templo Baal, quod aedificaverat in Samaria,
33 et fecit Achab palum. Et addidit Achab in opere suo irritans Dominum, Deum Israel, super omnes reges Israel, qui fuerant ante eum.
34 In diebus eius aedificavit Hiel de Bethel Iericho; in Abiram primitivo suo fundavit eam et in Segub novissimo suo posuit portas eius, iuxta verbum Domini, quod locutus fuerat in manu Iosue filii Nun.
King James Version
1 Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha, saying,
2 Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the dust, and made thee prince over my people Israel; and thou hast walked in the way of Jeroboam, and hast made my people Israel to sin, to provoke me to anger with their sins;
3 Behold, I will take away the posterity of Baasha, and the posterity of his house; and will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat.
4 Him that dieth of Baasha in the city shall the dogs eat; and him that dieth of his in the fields shall the fowls of the air eat.
5 Now the rest of the acts of Baasha, and what he did, and his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
6 So Baasha slept with his fathers, and was buried in Tirzah: and Elah his son reigned in his stead.
7 And also by the hand of the prophet Jehu the son of Hanani came the word of the LORD against Baasha, and against his house, even for all the evil that he did in the sight of the LORD, in provoking him to anger with the work of his hands, in being like the house of Jeroboam; and because he killed him.
8 ¶ In the twenty and sixth year of Asa king of Judah began Elah the son of Baasha to reign over Israel in Tirzah, two years.
9 And his servant Zimri, captain of half his chariots, conspired against him, as he was in Tirzah, drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza steward of his house in Tirzah.
10 And Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead.
11 ¶ And it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him not one that pisseth against a wall, neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends.
12 Thus did Zimri destroy all the house of Baasha, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake against Baasha by Jehu the prophet,
13 For all the sins of Baasha, and the sins of Elah his son, by which they sinned, and by which they made Israel to sin, in provoking the LORD God of Israel to anger with their vanities.
14 Now the rest of the acts of Elah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
15 ¶ In the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah did Zimri reign seven days in Tirzah. And the people were encamped against Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines.
16 And the people that were encamped heard say, Zimri hath conspired, and hath also slain the king: wherefore all Israel made Omri, the captain of the host, king over Israel that day in the camp.
17 And Omri went up from Gibbethon, and all Israel with him, and they besieged Tirzah.
18 And it came to pass, when Zimri saw that the city was taken, that he went into the palace of the king's house, and burnt the king's house over him with fire, and died,
19 For his sins which he sinned in doing evil in the sight of the LORD, in walking in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin which he did, to make Israel to sin.
20 Now the rest of the acts of Zimri, and his treason that he wrought, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
21 ¶ Then were the people of Israel divided into two parts: half of the people followed Tibni the son of Ginath, to make him king; and half followed Omri.
22 But the people that followed Omri prevailed against the people that followed Tibni the son of Ginath: so Tibni died, and Omri reigned.
23 ¶ In the thirty and first year of Asa king of Judah began Omri to reign over Israel, twelve years: six years reigned he in Tirzah.
24 And he bought the hill Samaria of Shemer for two talents of silver, and built on the hill, and called the name of the city which he built, after the name of Shemer, owner of the hill, Samaria.
25 ¶ But Omri wrought evil in the eyes of the LORD, and did worse than all that were before him.
26 For he walked in all the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin, to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger with their vanities.
27 Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did, and his might that he shewed, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
28 So Omri slept with his fathers, and was buried in Samaria: and Ahab his son reigned in his stead.
29 ¶ And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years.
30 And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.
31 And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.
32 And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.
33 And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.
34 ¶ In his days did Hiel the Beth-elite build Jericho: he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun.
