Then Baasha son of Ahijah, from the tribe of Issachar, plotted against Nadab and assassinated him while he and the Israelite army were laying siege to the Philistine town of Gibbethon.
Baasha killed Nadab in the third year of King Asa’s reign in Judah, and he became the next king of Israel.
He immediately slaughtered all the descendants of King Jeroboam, so that not one of the royal family was left, just as the LORD had promised concerning Jeroboam by the prophet Ahijah from Shiloh.
This was done because Jeroboam had provoked the anger of the LORD , the God of Israel, by the sins he had committed and the sins he had led Israel to commit.
The rest of the events in Nadab’s reign and everything he did are recorded in
There was constant war between King Asa of Judah and King Baasha of Israel.
Baasha son of Ahijah began to rule over all Israel in the third year of King Asa’s reign in Judah. Baasha reigned in Tirzah twenty-four years.
But he did what was evil in the LORD ’s sight and followed the example of Jeroboam, continuing the sins that Jeroboam had led Israel to commit.
