His valiant acts and warlike exploits:
and how he recovered Damascus and Hamath, which belonged to Judah, for
which cities, in the times of David and Solomon, were tributary to Judah, but afterwards fell into the hands of the Syrians, from whom Jeroboam recovered them, and annexed them to the kingdom of Israel; or, as Kimchi, though Jeroboam was king of Israel, yet, having taken them, he restored them to the king of Judah, to whom they belonged:
are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of
where all events of any moment were registered.
