15:27 In the fifty-second year of King Azariah’s reign over Judah, Pekah son of Remaliah became king over Israel. He reigned in Samaria 1 for twenty years. 15:28 He did evil in the sight of 2 the Lord; he did not repudiate 3 the sinful ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat who encouraged Israel to sin. 15:29 During Pekah’s reign over Israel, King Tiglath-pileser of Assyria came and captured Ijon, Abel Beth Maacah, Janoah, Kedesh, Hazor, 4 Gilead, and Galilee, including all the territory of Naphtali. He deported the people 5 to Assyria. 15:30 Hoshea son of Elah conspired against Pekah son of Remaliah. He assassinated him 6 and took his place as king, in the twentieth year of the reign of Jotham son of Uzziah.
