PekahPekah - "In the fifty-second year of Azariah (Uzziah) king of Judah, Pekah son of Remaliah became king over Israel in Samaria, and reigned twenty years.  He did evil in the sight of the Lord; he did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he made Israel sin.  In the days of Pekah king of Israel, Tiglath-pilesar king of Assyria came and captured Ijon and Abel-beth-maacah and Janoah and Kedesh and Hazor and Gilead and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali; and he carried them captive to Assyria." (II Kings 15:27-29, NASB)
