King Jehoram or Joram – 9th king of Israel
3:1 Ahab’s son Jehoram ascended to the throne of Israel at Samaria during the eighteenth year of the reign of Judah’s king Jehoshaphat. He reigned for twelve years, 2 practicing evil in the LORD’s presence, only not to the extent that his mother and father had done —he forced abolition of the sacred pillar to Baal that his father had crafted. 3 Even so, he kept on committing the sins that Nebat’s son Jeroboam had done, which ensnared Israel in sin—he never abandoned them.
