2 Kings 15:27-29 Living Bible (TLB)

27 New king of Israel: Pekah

Father’s name: Remaliah

Length of reign: 20 years, in Samaria

Reigning in Judah at that time: King Azariah, who had been the king there for 52 years

28 Pekah, too, was an evil king, and he continued in the example of Jeroboam I (son of Nebat), who led all of Israel into the sin of worshiping idols. 29 It was during his reign that King Tiglath-pileser[a] led an attack against Israel. He captured the cities of Ijon, Abel-beth-maacah, Janoah, Kedesh, Hazor, Gilead, Galilee, and all the land of Naphtali; and he took the people away to Assyria as captives.


  1. 2 Kings 15:29 Tiglath-pileser, also called Pul, in v. 19 above.
