Jehoram Of Judah
JEHORAM OF JUDAH (Hebrew : יְהֹורָם, Yəhôrām) or JORAM (Hebrew : יוֹרָם‎‎) (Greek : Ιωραμ, translit. Ioram; Latin : Joram), was a king of Judah , and the son of Jehoshaphat
Jehoshaphat
. Jehoram took the throne at the age of 32 and reigned for 8 years. (2 Kings 8:17) William F. Albright has dated his reign to 849 – 842 BC. Edwin Thiele placed a coregency of Jehoram with his father Jehoshaphat, starting in 853/852 BC, with the beginning of his sole reign occurring in 848/847 and his death in 841/840 BC. As explained in the Rehoboam article, Thiele's chronology for the first kings of Judah contained an internal inconsistency that later scholars corrected by dating these kings one year earlier, so that Jehoram's dates are taken as one year earlier in the present article: coregency beginning in 854/853, sole reign commencing in 849/848, and death in 842/841 BC

Ahab
of Israel. According to 2 Kings 8:26, Ahaziah was 22 years old when he began to reign, and reigned for one year in Jerusalem. 2 Chronicles 22:2 gives his age as 42 years when his reign began in Jerusalem. Most scholars regard the 42 years in 2 Chronicles 22:2 as a copyist's error for an original 22 years. The age of 22 is also found in some Greek and Syrian versions of 2 Chronicles 22:2. William F. Albright has dated his reign to 842 BC, while E. R. Thiele offers the date 841/840 BC
