\\INTRODUCTION TO 1 KINGS 16\\

This chapter contains a prophecy of the ruin of the family of Baasha,
and an account of his death, \\#1Ki 16:1-7\\, and of his son's
reigning in his stead two years, who was slain by Zimri one of his
captains, \\#1Ki 16:8-14\\, and who reigned but seven days,
\\#1Ki 16:15-20\\, and the people being divided between Tibni and
Omri, the party for the latter prevailed, and he was made king, and
reigned twelve years, \\#1Ki 16:21-28\\, and was succeeded by his son Ahab,
a very wicked prince, \\#1Ki 16:29-33\\, and the chapter is concluded
with the rebuilding of Jericho, \\#1Ki 16:34\\.
