In the fiftieth year of Azariah, king of Judah, Pekahiah, the son of Menahem, reigned on Israel in Samaria two years. (In the fiftieth year of Azariah, or Uzziah, the king of Judah, Pekahiah, the son of Menahem, began to reign upon Israel in Samaria, and he reigned for two years.)
And he did that, that was evil before the Lord; he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, that made Israel to do sin.
Forsooth Pekah, the son of Remaliah, (a) duke of his host, conspired against him, and smote him in Samaria, in the tower of the king's house, that is, (in) the palace, besides Argob, and besides Arieh; and he smote him with fifty men of the sons of Gileadites; and Pekah killed him, and reigned for him. (And Pekah, the son of Remaliah, a leader of Pekahiah's army, conspired against him, and struck him down in Samaria, in the tower of the palace, with Argob and Arieh; and he struck down with him fifty men of the Gileadites; and Pekah killed him, and reigned for him.)
Soothly the residue of the words of Pekahiah, and all things that he did, whether these be not written in the book of [the] words of [the] days of the kings of Israel?
