In the twentyandseventhyear of Asaking of Judah did Zimrireignsevendays in Tirzah. And the people were encamped against Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines.16
And the people that were encampedheardsay , 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 besiegedTirzah.18
And it came to pass, when Zimrisaw that the city was taken , that he went into the palace of the king'shouse, and burnt the king'shouse over him with fire, and died ,
For his sins which he sinned in doingevil 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 .
Now the rest of the acts of Zimri, and his treason that he wrought , are they not written in the book of the chroniclesof the kings of Israel?
