and the beginning of the 4th of Hosea, because in 2 Kings xviii. 9, 10, the 4th and 6th years of Hezekiah are inade pa. rallel to the 7th and 9th of Hosea. Iu like manner Jehoshaphat's 1st year coincides with the 4th and 5th of Ahab; and the year that Ahaziah reigned with the 11th and 12th of Jehoram, king of Israel. 2 Kings ix. 29.

The civil war between Omri and Tibni, 1 Kings xvi. 21, 22, seems to have lasted about four years [compare verses 15, 16, 23.); when, on the death of Tibni, the whole land acknow. ledged Omri for its king. Before that event, he reigned in Tirzah only; and after the death of Tibni sufficient time must have elapsed before the consolidation of his government, to enable the sacred historian to determine that period to six years, v. 23. When he obtained full possession of the throne, he probably ordered that the years of his reign should be reckoned from the death of Elah.

From 2 Kings i. 17. Jehoshaphat and Ahab, who, after their family alliance, seem to have often acted in concert, appear to bave conferred the royal dignity on their eldest sons at the same time : for the 2nd year of Jehoram, king of Judah, is made to coincide with the 1st year of the reign of Jehoram, king of Israel; in which case his reign began in the same year as Abaziah's, the 17th of Jehosbaphat's. But whether he was deprived afterwards, and re-instated in the 22nd year of Jehoshaphat, or then received a complete investiture, or whe. ther Jehoshaphat ordered his reign to be dated from thence, it is impossible to determine; but something of this kind seems necessary to harmonize the narrative.
