Prophecy against Baasha

1 Now the word of the LORD came to 1Jehu the son of 2Hanani against Baasha, saying, 2 "Inasmuch as I 3exalted you from the dust and made you leader over My people Israel, and 4you have walked in the way of Jeroboam and have made My people Israel sin, provoking Me to anger with their sins, 3 behold, 5I will consume 6Baasha and his house, and 7I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat. 4 "8Anyone of Baasha who dies in the city the dogs will eat, and anyone of his who dies in the field the birds of the heavens will eat." 5 9Now the rest of the acts of Baasha and what he did and his might, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?

The Israelite Kings

6 And Baasha slept with his fathers and was buried in 10Tirzah, and Elah his son became king in his place. 7 Moreover, the word of the LORD through 11the prophet Jehu the son of Hanani also came against Baasha and his household, both because of all the evil which he did in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him to anger with 12the work of his hands, in being like the house of Jeroboam, and because 13he struck ait. 8 In the twenty-sixth year of Asa king of Judah, Elah the son of Baasha became king over Israel at Tirzah, and reigned two years. 9 His servant 14Zimri, commander of half his chariots, conspired against him. Now he was at Tirzah drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza, 15who was over the household at Tirzah. 10 Then Zimri went in and struck him and put him to death in the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and became king in his place.
