The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
25 Nadab son of Jeroboam became king over Israel in the second year of Asa's rule in Judah. He was king of Israel two years. 25 Nadab son of Jeroboam became king of Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and he reigned over Israel two years.
26 He was openly evil before God - he followed in the footsteps of his father who both sinned and made Israel sin. 26 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, walking in the ways of his father and in his sin, which he had caused Israel to commit.
27 Baasha son of Ahijah of the tribe of Issachar ganged up on him and attacked him at the Philistine town of Gibbethon while Nadab and the Israelites were doing battle there. 27 Baasha son of Ahijah of the house of Issachar plotted against him, and he struck him down at Gibbethon, a Philistine town, while Nadab and all Israel were besieging it.
28 Baasha killed Nadab in the third year of Asa king of Judah and became Israel's next king. 28 Baasha killed Nadab in the third year of Asa king of Judah and succeeded him as king.
29 As soon as he was king he killed everyone in Jeroboam's family. There wasn't a living soul left to the name of Jeroboam; Baasha wiped them out totally, just as God's servant Ahijah of Shiloh had prophesied 29 As soon as he began to reign, he killed Jeroboam's whole family. He did not leave Jeroboam anyone that breathed, but destroyed them all, according to the word of the LORD given through his servant Ahijah the Shilonite--
30 - punishment for Jeroboam's sins and for making Israel sin, for making the God of Israel thoroughly angry. 30 because of the sins Jeroboam had committed and had caused Israel to commit, and because he provoked the LORD, the God of Israel, to anger.
31 The rest of Nadab's life, everything else he did, is written in The Chronicles of the Kings of Israel. 31 As for the other events of Nadab's reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel?
32 There was continuous war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel. 32 There was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel throughout their reigns.
