Pekah King of Israel

27 Pekah son of Remaliah became king over Israel in Samaria during Uzziah’s[a] fifty-second year as king of Judah. Pekah ruled twenty years, 28 and he did what the Lord said was wrong. Jeroboam son of Nebat had led Israel to sin, and Pekah did not stop doing the same sins.

29 Tiglath-Pileser[b] was king of Assyria. He attacked while Pekah was king of Israel, capturing the cities of Ijon, Abel Beth Maacah, Janoah, Kedesh, and Hazor. He also captured Gilead and Galilee and all the land of Naphtali and carried the people away to Assyria.
