Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

April 21 - Evening

"Then the word of the Lord came to Jehu son of Hanani concerning Baasha:

“I lifted you up from the dust and appointed you ruler over my people Israel, but you followed the ways of Jeroboam and caused my people Israel to sin and
to arouse my anger by their sins. So I am about to
wipe out Baasha and his house, and I will make your house like that of Jeroboam son of Nebat.
Dogs will eat those belonging to Baasha
who die in the city, and birds will feed on those
who die in the country.' "

- First Kings 16:1-4

Baasha Ends Jeroboam's Evil Dynasty, but Baasha's Dynasty is Also Cut Short    

Northern Israel’s first king, Jeroboam, reigned 22 wicked years (930-909 BC) and was followed by his son Nadab’s wicked 2 years. So God chose to raise up Baasha from the tribe of Issachar to assassinate Nadab during an Israelite siege in Philistia. Jeroboam’s whole family was put to death which ended the first dynasty of Israel after twenty-four years.

Baasha reigned in the capital city of Tirzah in Israel but God was not pleased and sent a prophet to pronounce judgment against him saying birds of the air would consume him and his family. After reigning for 24 years (908-886 BC) Baasha’s son Elah reigned next in Tirzah for only two years before he was cut down by Zimri while getting drunk at a friend’s house. Zimri immediately killed the whole family of Baasha according to the words of the prophet Jehu son of Hanani (seen above in 1 Kings 16:1-4) to end the second dynasty in the nation’s short 45 year history.

Zimri had the honor of having the shortest reign. The Israelite army was at war with the
Philistines when they heard that Zimri had assassinated their king Elah back in the capital of Tirzah. The military immediately declared their General Omri king of Israel instead of Zimri and turned their ranks from the Philistines to their own capital of Tirzah. When Zimri realized the city had fallen to General Omri’s troops he set the royal palace on fire with himself inside.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

katabrabeuo (Gr) – defraud (Eng) – katabrabeuo is Greek word that means “to decide as an umpire against someone” and “to defraud of the prize of victory.” Katabrabeuo comes from the Greek word brabeus, “an umpire.” This word is used one time in Colossians 2:18.


Like Jerusalem, the city of Samaria had an ophel or a part of its city that was referred to by the word “ophel” which is from the Hebrew root ‘pl, meaning “to rise up” and “ascend.” This rising part of Jerusalem led to Solomon’s new addition to the city towards Mount Moriah. In Samaria this valuable part of realist was the location of the residence of the prophet Elisha according to
2 Kings 5:24.
