All regnal dates for the kings of Israel and Judah are presented here according to Edwin R. Thiele’s The Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings, 3rd ed. (Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans, 1983). Some scholars using alternate chronological schemes have come to slightly different dates than those of Thiele’s system. For example, John Bright, using William F. Albright’s chronology (Bulletin of American Schools for Oriental Research 100 [December 1945], pp. 16–22), in his A History of Israel, 2nd ed. (Philadelphia, 1972), unnumbered pages after p. 474, dates the accession of Ahaziah of Israel to 850 B.C. instead of 853 B.C. and the date of Jehoshaphat’s death to 849 B.C. instead of 848 B.C. as presented here.
