Baasha made the Lord very angry, and that’s why the Lord gave Jehu this message for Baasha and his family. Baasha constantly disobeyed the Lord by following Jeroboam’s sinful example—but even worse, he killed everyone in Jeroboam’s family! Everything else Baasha did while he was king, including his brave deeds, is written in The History of the Kings of Israel. Baasha died and was buried in Tirzah, and his son Elah became king.
Those of your family who die in the city will be eaten by dogs, and those who die in the fields will be eaten by the birds.” The message was sent to Baasha and his family because he had angered the Lord by all his evil deeds. He was as evil as Jeroboam despite the fact that the Lord had destroyed all of Jeroboam’s descendants for their sins. The rest of Baasha’s biography—his deeds and conquests—are written in The Annals of the Kings of Israel.
