1 Kings 16:1-7 Common English Bible (CEB)

16 The Lord’s word came to Jehu, Hanani’s son, against Baasha: I raised you up from the dust and made you a leader over my people Israel, but you walked in Jeroboam’s ways, making my people Israel sin, making me angry with their sins. So look, I am about to set fire to Baasha and his household, and I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam, Nebat’s son. Dogs will eat any of Baasha’s family who die in town. Birds will eat any who die in the country.

Now the rest of Baasha’s deeds, what he did, and his powerful acts, aren’t they written in the official records of Israel’s kings? Baasha lay down with his ancestors and was buried in Tirzah. His son Elah succeeded him as king.

But the Lord’s word came through the prophet Jehu, Hanani’s son, concerning Baasha and his house. It concerned everything evil in the Lord’s eyes that Baasha had done, angering the Lord by his actions so that he would end up just like the house of Jeroboam. The message was also about how the Lord attacked Baasha.[a]


  1. 1 Kings 16:7 Or and also about how he attacked him or and because Baasha had attacked Jeroboam
