2 Kings chapter .xv.

The twenty seventh year of Ieroboam king of Israel, Azariah son of Amaziah king of Iuda began to reign. Sixteen years old was he when he was made king, and he reigned forty two years in Ierusalem, his mother's name was Iecheliah, and was of Ierusalem. And he did that pleased the LORD in all things as did his father Amaziah: save that they put not the hill altars away: for the people offered and burned fat still in the hill altars. And the LORD smote the king, that he was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in an house at liberty, and Iotham the king's son governed the house and judged the people of the land. The rest of the deeds of Azariah and all he did, are written in the chronicles of the kings of Iuda. And Azariah laid him to sleep with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David, and Iotham his son reigned in his stead.
In the thirty eighth year of Azariah king of Iuda, was Zachariah the son of Ieroboam made king upon Israel in Samaria, and reigned six months, and did that displeased the LORD, as did his fathers, and turned not from the sins of Ieroboam the son of Nabat which made Israel sin. And Selum the son of Iabes conspired against him, and smote him before the people, and killed him, and reigned in his stead. The rest of the deeds of Zachariah are written in the chronicles of the kings of Israel. This is the saying that the LORD spake unto Iehu, saying: thy sons shall sit on the seat of Israel in the fourth generation. And it came to pass. Selum the son of Iabes began to reign the thirty ninth year of Azariah king of Iuda, and he reigned a month in Samaria. For Manahem the son of Gadi came up from Therzah and went to Samaria and smote Selum the son of Iabes in Samaria, and slew him, and reigned in his stead. The rest of the deeds of Selum and the treason, which he conspired are written in the chronicles of the kings of Israel. The same time Manahem destroyed Thaphsah, and all that were therein, and the coasts thereof from Therzah (because they opened not to him) he smote and rent all the women with child. The thirty ninth year of Azariah king of Iuda, began Manahem the son of Gadi to reign upon Israel, and continued ten years in Samaria. And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and turned not all his days from the sin of Ieroboam the son of Nabat which made Israel sin. And Phul king of Assiria came upon the land. And Manahem gave Phul a thousand talents of silver, to help him to stablish his kingdom. And Manahem raised the money in Israel, upon all men of substance, for to give the king of Assiria fifty sicles of silver apiece. And the king of Assiria turned back again and tarried not there in the land. The rest of the deeds of Manahem and all he did, are written in the chronicles of the kings of Israel. And when Manahem was laid to rest with his fathers Phakeiah his son reigned in his stead. The fiftieth year of Azariah king of Iuda, began Phakeiah the son of Manahem to reign over Israel in Samaria, and continued two years, and wrought wickedly in the sight of the LORD and left not off from the sins of Ieroboam son of Nabat which made Israel sin. And Phakeh the son of Romeliah a lord of his conspired against him and slew him in the palace of the king's house, with Argob and Ariah and fifty men with him that were Gileadites: and when he had killed him, reigned in his room. The rest of the acts of Phakeiah and all he did are written in the chronicles of the kings of Israel. And the fifty second year of Azariah king of Iuda, began Phakeh the son of Romeliah to reign over Israel in Samaria and continued twenty years, and did evil in the sight of the LORD, and turned not from the sins of Ieroboam the son of Nabat that made Israel sin. In the days of Phakeh king of Israel, came Teglath Phalasar king of Assiria, and took Aion, Abel, Beth, Maach, Ianoah, Kades, Hazor, Gilead, Galile, and all the land of Nephthali, and carried them away to Assiria. And Hosea the son of Elah conspired treason against Phakeh the son of Romeliah and smote him and slew him and reigned in his stead, the twentieth year of Iotham the son of Oziah. The rest of the acts of Phakeh, and all he did, are written in the stories of the kings of Israel.
The second year of Phakeh son of Romeliah king of Israel, began Iotham the son of Oziah king of Iuda to reign. Five and twenty years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Ierusalem. His mother's name was Ierusa the daughter of Zadok. And he did that was right in the sight of the LORD: even in all things as did his father Oziah, did he. But they put not away the hill altars: for the people offered and burnt incense still in the hill altars, he built the highest door in the house of the LORD. The rest of the deeds of Iotham and all he did, are written in the Chronicles of the kings of Iuda. In those days the LORD began to send against Iuda, Razin the king of Siria and Phakeh the son of Romeliah. And Iotham rested with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father, and Ahaz his son reigned in his stead.
