|Chart of the Kings||King Pekahiah - Biography||God's Judgment Regarding King Pekahiah|
Pekahiah was a relatively powerless king who nonetheless used what power he had for the evil purpose of sponsoring idol worship and the sins that were historically associated with it. The verdict on his brief reign is this:
2 Kings 15:23-24 In the fiftieth year of Azariah [that is, Uzziah] king of Judah Pekahiah the son of Menahem began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned two years. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD: he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.
