Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
PEKAHIAH , son of Menahem, was king of Israel for a short time in the troubled period which preceded the fall of Samaria. The record tells us nothing about him except that he displeased Jahweh by walking in the sins of Jeroboam i., and that he was assassinated by Pekah, one of his officers ( 2 Kings 15:23-28 ).
