Three Syrian kings in the Bible story had the name Ben-hadad. The first cooperated with Judah’s king Asa in attacking Israel’s king Baasha (1 Kings 15:16-22). The second fought with the Israelite kings Ahab and Joram (or Jehoram). (1 Kings 20:1-34; 2 Kings 6:24-33; 2 Kings 7), but was later assassinated by Hazael, one of his generals (2 Kings 8:8-15). The third, who was Hazael’s son and successor, began with some victories over Israel, but later lost to Israel repeatedly (2 Kings 13:3; 2 Kings 13:24-25; Amos 1:4). For further details see SYRIA.
