1 Kings 16:24-29New American Standard Bible (NASB)
24 He bought the hill [a]Samaria from Shemer for two talents of silver; and he built on the hill, and named the city which he built [b]Samaria, after the name of Shemer, the owner of the hill.
25 Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, and acted more wickedly than all who were before him.26 For he walked in all the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat and in his sins which he made Israel sin, provoking the Lord God of Israel with their [c]idols.27 Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did and his might which he [d]showed, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?28 So Omri slept with his fathers and was buried in Samaria; and Ahab his son became king in his place.
29 Now Ahab the son of Omri became king over Israel in the thirty-eighth year of Asa king of Judah, and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty-two years.
