Son of Ahijah, and commander of the armies of Nadab, king of Israel. He killed his master treacherously at the siege of Gibbethon, and usurped the kingdom, B.C. 953, which he possessed twenty-three years. He exterminated the whole race of Jeroboam, as had been predicted, 1 Kings 14:7-14 ; but by his bad conduct and idolatry incurred God's indignation,

1 Kings 15:1-16:7,12 . God sent him a warning by the mouth of Jebu the prophet; which was fulfilled in the extermination of his family two years after his own death.
