Haftarah-Shekalim-Historical Background I Print E-mail

Prophets-Bible-Study-Haftarah-ShekalimIn the fifth year of Yoram son of Ahab king of Israel, when Yehoshaphat was king of Judah, Yehoram son of Yehoshaphat began his reign as king of Judah. He was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years. He followed the ways of the kings of Israel, as the house of Ahab had done, for he married a daughter of Ahab. He did evil in the eyes of God. Nevertheless, for the sake of his servant David, God was not willing to destroy Judah. He had promised to maintain a lamp for David and his descendants forever.

 

In the time of Yehoram, Edom rebelled against Judah and set up its own king. So Yehoram went to Zair with all his chariots. The Edomites surrounded him and his chariot commanders, but he rose up and broke through by night; his army, however, fled back home. To this day Edom has been in rebellion against Judah. Libnah revolted at the same time.

As for the other events of Yehoram’s reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? Yehoram rested with his ancestors and was buried with them in the City of David. And Ahaziah his son succeeded him as king.

In the twelfth year of Yoram son of Ahab king of Israel, Ahaziah son of Yehoram king of Judah began to reign. Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem one year. His mother’s name was Athaliah, a granddaughter of Omri king of Israel. He followed the ways of the house of Ahab and did evil in the eyes of God, as the house of Ahab had done, for he was related by marriage to Ahab’s family.

Ahaziah went with Yoram son of Ahab to war against Hazael king of Aram at Ramoth Gilead. The Arameans wounded Yoram; so King Yoram returned to Jezreel to recover from the wounds the Arameans had inflicted on him at Ramoth in his battle with Hazael king of Aram.

Then Ahaziah son of Yehoram king of Judah went down to Jezreel to see Yoram son of Ahab, because he had been wounded. (II Kings 8:16-29)
