1 Kings 15:32-1 Kings 16:7 - The Reign Of Baasha In Israel

32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.

33 And the third year of Asa king of Judah, Baasha the son of Ahijah began to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, and continued twenty four years. 34 And he did that which displeased the LORD, for he walked in the way of Jeroboam and in his sin wherewith he made Israel sin.

1 Then came the word of the LORD to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha, saying, 2 "Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of dust and made thee captain over my people Israel, and thou hast walked in the way of Jeroboam and hast made my people Israel sin, to anger me with their sin: 3 therefore I will make clean riddance of Baasha and of all his house, and will make his house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat. 4 And he that dieth of Baasha in the city, him shall dogs eat: and him that dieth in the fields, shall the fowls of the air eat."

5 The rest of the deeds of Baasha, and what he did and his power, are written in the book of the histories of the kings of Israel. 6 And Baasha fell on sleep with his fathers and was buried in Tirzah. And Elah his son reigned in his stead. 7 And thereto through the Prophet Jehu the son of Hanani, the word of the LORD came against Baasha and against his house, because of all the wickedness that he did in the sight of the LORD, in angering him with the works of his hands, that he should be like the house of Jeroboam, because he had killed Nabad.
