the days
2 Kings 16:1
In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remali'ah, Ahaz the son of Jotham, king of Judah, began to reign.
2 Chronicles 28:1-6
1
Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. And he did not do what was right in the eyes of the LORD, like his father David,
2
but walked in the ways of the kings of Israel. He even made molten images for the Ba'als;
3
and he burned incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burned his sons as an offering, according to the abominable practices of the nations whom the LORD drove out before the people of Israel.
4
And he sacrificed and burned incense on the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.
5
Therefore the LORD his God gave him into the hand of the king of Syria, who defeated him and took captive a great number of his people and brought them to Damascus. He was also given into the hand of the king of Israel, who defeated him with great slaughter.
6
For Pekah the son of Remali'ah slew a hundred and twenty thousand in Judah in one day, all of them men of valor, because they had forsaken the LORD, the God of their fathers.
Rezin
Isaiah 8:6
"Because this people have refused the waters of Shilo'ah that flow gently, and melt in fear before Rezin and the son of Remali'ah;
2 Kings 15:37
In those days the LORD began to send Rezin the king of Syria and Pekah the son of Remali'ah against Judah.
Psalm 83:3-5
3
For lo, thy enemies are in tumult; those who hate thee have raised their heads.
4
They lay crafty plans against thy people; they consult together against thy protected ones.
5
They say, "Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!"
but could
Isaiah 7:4-9
4
and say to him, `Take heed, be quiet, do not fear, and do not let your heart be faint because of these two smoldering stumps of firebrands, at the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria and the son of Remali'ah.
5
Because Syria, with E'phraim and the son of Remali'ah, has devised evil against you, saying,
6
"Let us go up against Judah and terrify it, and let us conquer it for ourselves, and set up the son of Ta'be-el as king in the midst of it,"
7
thus says the Lord GOD: It shall not stand, and it shall not come to pass.
8
For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin. (Within sixty-five years E'phraim will be broken to pieces so that it will no longer be a people.)
9
And the head of E'phraim is Sama'ria, and the head of Sama'ria is the son of Remali'ah. If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established.'"
Isaiah 8:9
Be broken, you peoples, and be dismayed; give ear, all you far countries; gird yourselves and be dismayed; gird yourselves and be dismayed.
Isaiah 8:10
Take counsel together, but it will come to nought; speak a word, but it will not stand, for God is with us.
