In the fifteenthyear of Amaziah the son of Joashking of JudahJeroboam the son of Joashking of Israel began to reign in Samaria, and reigned forty and oneyears.24
And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD: he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin .
He restored the coast of Israel from the entering of Hamath unto the sea of the plain, according to the word of the LORDGod of Israel, which he spake by the hand of his servantJonah, the son of Amittai, the prophet, which was of Gathhepher.26
For the LORDsaw the affliction of Israel, that it was verybitter : for there was not any shut up , nor any left , nor any helper for Israel.27
And the LORDsaid not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.28
Now the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, and all that he did , and his might, how he warred , and how he recoveredDamascus, and Hamath, which belonged to Judah, for Israel, are they not written in the book of the chroniclesof the kings of Israel?29
And Jeroboamslept with his fathers, even with the kings of Israel; and Zachariah his sonreigned in his stead.
