1 Kings 15:21

And it came to pass, when Baasha heard thereof
What was doing in the northern part of his kingdom:

that he left off building of Ramah;
which was the thing designed to be answered by this diversion:

and dwelt in Tirzah;
in the tribe of Manasseh, nearer at hand, to observe and stop the motions of the Syrian king.
