9 Zechariah did what was evil in the LORD's sight, as his ancestors had done. He refused to turn from the sins of idolatry that Jeroboam son of Nebat had led Israel to commit. 9 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, as his fathers had done. He did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit.

11 The rest of the events in Zechariah's reign are recorded in The Book of the History of the Kings of Israel. 11 The other events of Zechariah's reign are written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel.
