      King Saul and King David and also Soloman were of the United Kingdom of Israel.. They were the first kings. The Kingdom divided afterwards.. Where there we 2 Kings one of Judah and one of Israel northern tribes. All the kings of Israel were bad kings. With only 8 in Judah being good kings.

    King Jehu is not a bad king. He destroyed baal worship in Israel but he allowed idolatry the golden calves in Bethel and Dan

    • Jason Haigwood Says:

      I’m with you. Bloody entry into kingship, sure. Did he win the prize for “best of show,” hardly. But he was FAR from a bad king!
