1 Kings 16:23-28 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
23 In the thirty-first year of Asa king of Judah, Omri became king over Israel and reigned twelve years; he reigned six years at 1Tirzah. 24 He bought the hill aSamaria from Shemer for two talents of silver; and he built on the hill, and named the city which he built b2Samaria, after the name of Shemer, the owner of the hill. 25 3Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD, and 4acted more wickedly than all who were before him. 26 For he 5walked in all the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat and in his sins which he made Israel sin, provoking the LORD God of Israel with their cidols. 27 Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did and his might which he dshowed, 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 became king in his place.
