1 Kings 16:9-19 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
9 His servant 1Zimri, commander of half his chariots, conspired against him. Now he was at Tirzah drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza, 2who 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. 11 It came about when he became king, as soon as he sat on his throne, that 3he akilled all the household of Baasha; he did not leave ba single male , neither of his crelatives nor of his friends. 12 Thus Zimri destroyed all the household of Baasha, 4according to the word of the LORD, which He spoke against Baasha through 5Jehu the prophet, 13 for all the sins of Baasha and the sins of Elah his son, which they sinned and which they made Israel sin, 6provoking the LORD God of Israel to anger with their didols. 14 7Now the rest of the acts of Elah and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 15 In the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, Zimri reigned seven days at Tirzah. Now the people were camped against 8Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines. 16 The people who were camped heard eit said, "Zimri has conspired and has also struck down the king." Therefore all Israel made Omri, the commander of the army, king over Israel that day in the camp. 17 Then Omri and all Israel with him went up from Gibbethon and besieged Tirzah. 18 When Zimri saw that the city was taken, he went into the citadel of the king's house and burned the king's house over him with fire, and 9died, 19 because of his sins which he sinned, doing evil in the sight of the LORD, 10walking in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin which he did, making Israel sin.
