In the fifty-second year of Azariah king of Judah, Pekah the son of Remaliah began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and he reigned twenty years.
And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD. He did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, 1which he made Israel to sin.
In the days of Pekah king of Israel, 2Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria came and captured 3Ijon, 4Abel-beth-maacah, Janoah, 5Kedesh, 6Hazor, Gilead, and 7Galilee, all the land of Naphtali, and he carried the people captive to Assyria.
Then Hoshea the son of Elah made a conspiracy against Pekah the son of Remaliah and struck him down and put him to death and reigned in his place, 8in the twentieth year of Jotham the son of Uzziah.
Now the rest of the acts of Pekah and all that he did, behold, they are written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel.
