1 KINGS 15:25-16:7
15:25 And Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa the king of Judah, and he reigned over Israel two years.
15:26 And he did what was evil in the sight of Jehovah and walked in the way of his father and in his sin by which he caused Israel to sin.
15:27 And Baasha the son of Ahijah, of the house of Issachar, conspired against him; and Baasha struck him down in Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines, while Nadab and all Israel were laying siege to Gibbethon.
15:28 And Baasha killed him in the third year of Asa the king of Judah, and he reigned in his place.
15:29 And as soon as he became king, he struck down all the house of Jeroboam; he left to Jeroboam not one who had breath, until he had destroyed them, according to the word of Jehovah, which He spoke through His servant Ahijah the Shilonite,
15:30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam, which he committed and by which he caused Israel to sin, because of his provocation by which he provoked Jehovah the God of Israel to anger.
15:31 And the rest of the acts of Nadab and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
15:32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha the king of Israel all their days.
15:33 In the third year of Asa the king of Judah, Baasha the son of Ahijah began to reign over all Israel in Tirzah for twenty-four years.
15:34 And he did what was evil in the sight of Jehovah and walked in the way of Jeroboam and in his sin by which he caused Israel to sin.
16:1 And the word of Jehovah came to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha, saying,
16:2 Because I exalted you out of the dust and made you a leader over My people Israel, yet you have walked in the way of Jeroboam and have caused My people Israel to sin, thereby provoking Me to anger by their sins;
16:3 I am now sweeping up after Baasha and after his house, and I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat.
16:4 Him of Baasha who dies in the city, the dogs will eat; and him who dies in the field, the birds of heaven will eat.
16:5 And the rest of the acts of Baasha and what he did and his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
16:6 And Baasha slept with his fathers and was buried in Tirzah. And Elah his son reigned in his place.
16:7 Moreover through the prophet Jehu the son of Hanani the word of Jehovah came against Baasha and against his house, both because of all the evil that he did in the sight of Jehovah, provoking Him to anger with the work of his hands and by being like the house of Jeroboam, and because he struck it down.
