The long reign of King Asa in Judah (911-870 BCE) (1 Kings 15:23-15:24)

Now the rest of all the acts of King Asa, all his power, and all that he did, and the cities that he built, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah? But in his old age he was diseased in his feet. Then King Asa slept with his ancestors. He was buried with his ancestors in the city of his father David. His son Jehoshaphat succeeded him.”

Once again, if you are interested in King Asa you can go to the “Book of the Chronicles or Annals of the kings of Judah.” This lost book serves as the source background for this biblical writer. In his old age, King Asa, like Mephibosheth, Jonathan’s son in 2 Samuel, chapter 9, had a foot problem. Like the other kings of Judah he was buried in Jerusalem. He was succeeded by his son Jehoshaphat.
