Treasury of Scripture
In the twenty and sixth year of Asa king of Judah began Elah the son of Baasha to reign over Israel in Tirzah, two years.
In the twenty
Baasha began to reign in the third year of Asa, and reigned
24 years; yet he died and was succeeded by Elah in the
26th year of Asa; and, in like manner, Elah, who began to reign in the
26th year of Asa, and was killed in the
27th, is said to have reigned two years. This it is evident that a part of a year is calculated as a whole year. In the Chinese annals, the whole year in which a king dies is ascribed to his reign, the years of the succeeding king being reckoned only from the beginning of the following year.
