But a certain man drew his bow and unknowingly struck the king of Israel between the scale armor and the breastplate; so he said to the driver of his chariot, "Turn around, and carry me out of the battle, for I am wounded."
The battle grew hot that day, and the king was propped up in his chariot facing the Arameans, until at evening he died; the blood from the wound had flowed into the bottom of the chariot.
Then about sunset a shout went through the army, "Every man to his city, and every man to his country!"
So the king died, and was brought to Samaria; they buried the king in Samaria.
They washed the chariot by the pool of Samaria; the dogs licked up his blood, and the prostitutes washed themselves in it, a according to the word of the Lord that he had spoken.
Now the rest of the acts of Ahab, and all that he did, and the ivory house that he built, and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel?
So Ahab slept with his ancestors; and his son Ahaziah succeeded him.
Jehoshaphat son of Asa began to reign over Judah in the fourth year of King Ahab of Israel.
Jehoshaphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Azubah daughter of Shilhi.
He walked in all the way of his father Asa; he did not turn aside from it, doing what was right in the sight of the Lord; yet the high places were not taken away, and the people still sacrificed and offered incense on the high places.
Jehoshaphat also made peace with the king of Israel.
