Bible: 2 Kings 8:16-19

Jehoram’s Reign over Judah

8:16 In the fifth year of the reign of Israel’s King Joram, son of Ahab, Jehoshaphat’s son Jehoram became king over Judah. 1  8:17 He was thirty-two years old when he became king and he reigned for eight years in Jerusalem. 2  8:18 He followed in the footsteps of the kings of Israel, just as Ahab’s dynasty had done, for he married Ahab’s daughter. 3  He did evil in the sight of 4  the Lord. 8:19 But the Lord was unwilling to destroy Judah. He preserved Judah for the sake of 5  his servant David to whom he had promised a perpetual dynasty. 6
