1 Kings 15:29

15:29 he killed all the house of Jeroboam. In order to consolidate his position as king, Baasha disposes of all potential claimants to the throne in Jeroboam’s family. This fulfills the prophecy of Ahijah to Jeroboam (14:10–11). The author does not commend Baasha’s actions; on the contrary, he later condemns him (16:7).
