Son of Jehoash, or Joash, and his successor on the throne of Israel. He was made co-regent in B.C. 836, and reigned alone 41 years: B.C. 825-784. Very little is recorded of this king except that he obtained signal victories over the Syrians, and Hamath and Damascus were recovered, for the Lord had mercy on Israel. "He departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat." Amos announced his death by the sword. 2 Kings 13:13; 2 Kings 14:16-29; 2 Kings 15:1,8; 1 Chronicles 5:17; Hosea 1:1; Amos 1:1; Amos 7:9-11 .
