Jehoram- Joram BEN YEHOŠAFAT ha-David, King of Judah (849/848-842/841BC)

  • Died: Abt 841 B.C.

   General Notes:

Jehoram formed an alliance with the kingdom of Israel by marrying Athaliah, the daughter of Ahab. Despite this alliance with the stronger northern kingdom, Jehoram's rule of Judah was shaky. Edom revolted, and when Jehoram marched against this people, his army fled before the Edomites, and he was forced to acknowledge their independence. The town of Libnah revolted during his reign, according to the author of 2 Chronicles (21:10), because he "had abandoned Yahweh, God of his fathers."

2 Chronicles relates that a raid consisting of Philistines, Arabs and Ethiopians looted the king's house, and carried off all of his family except for his youngest son Jehoahaz (21:16f). After this, Jehoram was aflicted with a painful inflammation of the abdomen, and died two years later (21:18f).

   Marriage Information:

Jehoram- married Athaliah BAT AHAB Queen of Judah (843-839BC), daughter of Ahab BEN OMRI King of Israel (874/869-853/850BC) and Princess Jezebel (Izével) of Phoenician Tyre. (Athaliah BAT AHAB Queen of Judah (843-839BC) died about 835 b.c..)
