Israel’s King Jeroboam

23 In the fifteenth year of Judah’s King Amaziah son of Joash, Jeroboam(A) son of Jehoash became king of Israel in Samaria, and he reigned forty-one years. 24 He did what was evil in the Lord’s sight. He did not turn away from all the sins Jeroboam son of Nebat had caused Israel to commit.(B)

25 He restored Israel’s border(C) from Lebo-hamath(D) as far as the Sea of the Arabah,(E) according to the word the Lord, the God of Israel, had spoken through his servant, the prophet Jonah(F) son of Amittai from Gath-hepher.(G) 26 For the Lord saw that the affliction of Israel was very bitter(H) for both slaves and free people.[a] There was no one to help Israel. 27 The Lord had not said he would blot out the name of Israel under heaven,(I) so he delivered(J) them by the hand of Jeroboam son of Jehoash.

28 The rest of the events of Jeroboam’s reign—along with all his accomplishments, the power he had to wage war, and how he recovered for Israel Damascus(K) and Hamath,(L) which had belonged to Judah[b]—are written in the Historical Record of Israel’s Kings.(M) 29 Jeroboam rested with his ancestors, the kings of Israel. His son Zechariah became king in his place.(N)
