Jeroboam II

2 Kings 14:23-29 KJVA

The Reign of Jeroboam

23In the fifteenth year of Amazi´ah the son of Jo´ash king of Judah, Jerobo´am the son of Jo´ash king of Israel began to reign in Samaria, and reigned forty and one years.24And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord: he departed not from all the sins of Jerobo´am the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.25 He restored the coast of Israel from the entering of Hamath unto the sea of the plain, according to the word of the Lord God of Israel, which he spake by the hand of his servant Jonah, the son of Amit´tai, the prophet, which was of Gath–he´pher.26For the Lord saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter: for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel.27And the Lord said not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jerobo´am the son of Jo´ash.

28Now the rest of the acts of Jerobo´am, and all that he did, and his might, how he warred, and how he recovered Damascus, and Hamath, which belonged to Judah, for Israel, are they not written in the book of the Chronicles of the kings of Israel?29And Jerobo´am slept with his fathers, even with the kings of Israel; and Zachari´ah his son reigned in his stead.
