|Chart of the Kings||King Jeroboam II - Biography||God's Judgment Regarding King Jeroboam II|
The second King Jeroboam's career was long but unremarkable. He continued the golden calf cult started by the first King Jeroboam, and in spite of the LORD's help given through the prophet Jonah, Jeroboam II continued his evil ways.
2 Kings 14:23-24 In the fifteenth year of Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel began to reign in Samaria, and reigned forty and one years. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD: he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.
