Where can I look to read about the annals of the kings of Israel?
To my knowledge, unfortunately, there is not much information about these books except that they are historical records of both Judah and Israel. They were used for every king to at least the end of the reign of Jehoiakim. It is presumed that these books contained records of the reigning kings, register of achievements, and important calendar of events. It is also quite possible that they contained records of peace accords and other transactions of royal governance. No copies of these books have ever been found; most probably they were lost during the invasion of the Babylonians and the exile of the people of Israel.
