The Kings of IeShRaEL

List of KINGS

Somewhere around 1000 B.C. Shaul is succeeded by Dauid.
reigned forty years, and was upright, howbeit not perfect.
SheLoMoH: reigned forty years, though he had a good start, he did evil by worshipping other "mighty ones".

Kings of IaHUDaH

Rechab'am reigned seventeen years and did evil.
Abeiah reigned three years warred against Iarob'am. The chosen men of IaHUDaH slew 500,000 chosen men of IeShRaEL.
Asa reigned forty one years and was righteous
Iahushaphat reigned twenty five years, and was righteous.
Iahuram reigned eight years, and did evil as did Ieshrael, the daughter of Ahab was his wife.
Ahaziah reigned one year, he also did evil.
Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah reigned six years, she destroyed the royal seed of the house of Iahudah to become queen. However Iahuash son of Ahaziah was hidden in the temple.
Iahuash was seven years old when he began to reign, and reigned forty years. And Iahuash did that which was right in the sight of IaHUeH all the days of Iahuiada the priest. He repaired the house of Elohim, but then did evil in worshipping idols and murdering IaHUeH's high priest. A fuller account follows.
Amaziah reigned twenty nine years, and was so so.
Uzziah reigned fifty two years, and was upright so IaHUeH helped him, he became mighty, then his heart was lifted up causing him to transgress against IaHUeH by burning incense on His altar, which was only for the priest to do. As punishment he became a leper.
Iotham: reigned sixteen years, and was upright.
Achaz: reigned sixteen years, and did evil
Hezekiah: reigned twenty nine years in Iahudah and was upright, howbeit he was self exaltive. In his pride he showed the Babylonians all of his treasures.
Menashsheh: reigned fifty five years, and did evil.
Amon: reigned two years, and did evil.
Iosheiahu: reigned thirty one years, "And like unto him was there no king before him, that turned to IaHUeH with all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses; neither after him arose there any like him. Notwithstanding IaHUeH turned not from the fierceness of His great wrath, wherewith His anger was kindled against Iahudah, because of all the provocations that Menashsheh had provoked Him withal."
Iahuahaz: reigned three months and did evil.

I count nineteen Kings of IaHUDaH. Maybe six of them were close to obeying IaHUeH, at least at one point during their reign.


Iarob'am: reigned twenty two years and did evil.
Nadab: reigned two years and did evil.
Baasha: slew Nadab, reigned twenty four years, and did evil.

Zimri: slew Elah and reigned seven days.
Omri: reigned twelve years, established Shamar (Samaria), and did evil.
Achab: reigned twenty two years, and did evil in the sight of IaHUeH above all that were before him.
Ahaziah: reigned two years, and did evil.
Ioram: reigned twelve years, and though he did put away the image of Ba'al that his father Achab had made, he did evil.
Iehu: reigned twenty eight years, destroyed Ba'al out of IeShRaEL, but took no heed to walk in the Law of IaHUeH.
Iahuahaz: reigned seventeen years, and did evil.
Iahuash: reigned sixteen years and did evil.

Shallum: slew Iarob'am, and reigned one month.

Hoshea: reigned nine years.

Out of eighteen Kings of the Ten Tribed IeShRaEL, I found none righteous.
