24 He bought the hill Samaria from Shemer for two talents of silver; and he built on the hill, and named * the city which he built 2Samaria, after the name of Shemer, the owner of the hill.
25 3Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD, and 4acted more wickedly than all who were before him.
26 For he 5walked in all the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat and in his sins which he made Israel sin, provoking the LORD God of Israel with their idols.
27 Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did and his might which he showed, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles * of the Kings of Israel?
28 So Omri slept with his fathers and was buried in Samaria; and Ahab his son became king in his place.
