came the word of the LORD against Baasha, and against his house, even
for all the evil that he did in the sight of the LORD, in provoking him
to anger with the work of his hands, in being like the house of
Jeroboam; and because he killed him.
KI1 16:8 In the twenty and sixth year of Asa king of Judah began Elah
the son of Baasha to reign over Israel in Tirzah, two years.
KI1 16:9 And his servant Zimri, captain of half his chariots, conspired
against him, as he was in Tirzah, drinking himself drunk in the house of
Arza steward of his house in Tirzah.
KI1 16:10 And Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the
twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead.
