|Chart of the Kings||King Zimri - Biography||God's Judgment Regarding King Zimri|
Zimri was a powerful military leader who spent his power in a failed bid to become king, conspiring and committing multiple murders along the way. He also practiced idolatry, repugnant to God. His brief reign is judged in these words:
1 Kings 16:18-19 And it came to pass, when Zimri saw that the city was taken, that he went into the palace of the king's house, and burnt the king's house over him with fire, and died, For his sins which he sinned in doing evil in the sight of the LORD, in walking in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin which he did, to make Israel to sin.
