Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu son of Hanani concerning Baasha:
“I lifted you up from the dust and appointed you ruler over my people Israel, but you followed the ways of Jeroboam and caused my people Israel to sin and to arouse my anger by their sins.
So I am about to wipe out Baasha and his house, and I will make your house like that of Jeroboam son of Nebat.
Dogs will eat those belonging to Baasha who die in the city, and birds will feed on those who die in the country.”
As for the other events of Baasha’s reign, what he did and his achievements, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel?
