Nadab, then Baasha, Rules over Israel

25 Now 1Nadab the son of Jeroboam became king over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and he reigned over Israel two years. 26 He did evil in the sight of the LORD, and 2walked in the way of his father and 3in his sin which he made Israel sin. 27 Then 4Baasha the son of Ahijah of the house of Issachar conspired against him, and Baasha struck him down at 5Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines, while Nadab and all Israel were laying siege to Gibbethon. 28 So Baasha killed him in the third year of Asa king of Judah and reigned in his place. 29 It came about as soon as he was king, he struck down all the household of Jeroboam. He did not leave to Jeroboam aany persons alive, until he had destroyed them, 6according to the word of the LORD, which He spoke by His servant Ahijah the Shilonite, 30 and because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and 7which he made Israel sin, because of his provocation with which he provoked the LORD God of Israel to anger. 31 8Now the rest of the acts of Nadab and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?
