Jan 04, 2022 · King Joash of Israel began his reign in the thirty-seventh year of the reign of King Joash of Judah, so there was some overlap. King Amaziah started ruling Judah in the second year of King Joash of Israel. Amaziah of Judah battled against the Edomites and then challenged Joash of Israel to battle (2 Kings 14:7–8).
Joash was born in the year 3055 (after Creation) and he became king at the age of six (in the year 3061). He reigned for forty years, and was one of the outstanding kings of Judea, some two and half centuries before its destruction at the hands of Nebuchadnezar of Babylon.

Jeroboam II (Hebrew: יָרָבְעָם, Yāroḇə‘ām; Greek: Ἱεροβοάμ; Latin: Hieroboam/Jeroboam) was the son and successor of Jehoash (alternatively spelled Joash) and the thirteenth king of the ancient Kingdom of Israel, over which he ruled for forty-one years in the eighth century BC.
A short time later God informs David to go to Hebron where he is anointed king over the tribe of Judah (2Samuel 2:1 - 4). Abner, Saul's general, works to make Ishbosheth (Saul's remaining son) ruler of all of Israel's tribes (2Samuel 2:8 - 9) except Judah, possibly during a period of five to five and one half years.
