2 Kings 14:23-29

Great(i) 23 In the .xv. yeare of Amaziahu the sonne of Ioas kyng of Iuda, was Ieroboam the sonne of Ioas made kynge ouer Israel in Samaria, and raygned .xli. yere, 24 and wrought that which was euell in the syght of the Lorde. Nether turned he awaye from all the sinnes of Ieroboam the sonne of Nebat which made Israel to synne. 25 He restored the coaste of Israel from the enterynge of Hemath vnto the see of the wildernes, according to the worde of the Lorde God of Israel, which he spake by the hande of his seruaunt Iona the sonne of Amithai the prophete, which was of Geth hepher. 26 For the Lorde sawe howe that the afflyccyon of Israel was exceadynge bytter, in so moche that the presoned and the forsaken were at an ende. And ther was none to helpe Israel. 27 And the Lorde sayde not, that he wolde putt out the name of Israel from vnder heauen, but he helped them by the hande of Ieroboam the sonne of Ioas. 28 The rest of the wordes that concerne Ieroboam, and all that he dyd, and hys strength, which he executed in the warres, and howe he restored Damasco, and Heniath to Iuda in Israel, are not they written in the boke of the chronycles of the kynges of Israel? 29 And Ieroboam slepte with hys fathers, euen wt the kynges of Israel, and Zacharia his sonne raygned in hys steade.
