Kings of Israel



Elah Rex

Elah from "Promptuarii Iconum Insigniorum "

Elah (Hebrew: אֵלָה‎; Greek: Ἠλά; Latin: Ela) was a son of Baasha, who succeeded him as king of Israel. William F. Albright has dated his reign to 877 BC - 876 BC, while E. R. Thiele offers the dates 886 BC - 885 BC.[1]

Chapter 16 of 1 Kings relates how Elah was murdered by his chariot commander Zimri, who became his successor.
