Jeroboam II was the son and successor of Jehoash, and the fourteenth king of Israel. Though his reign lasted forty-one years, little is mentioned about his rule in the Bible. It appears as though God gave Israel one last chance to redeem itself, but giving it much prosperity and letting it regain much of its former territory. Despite this, however, iniquity widely prevailed in the land.
The prophet Jonah lived during this time, as did Hosea and Amos, all railing against the terrible social and religious corruption prevalent. Their warnings fell on deaf years and and Israel surived as a nation for only a few decades after.
Jeroboam II was succeeded by his son Zechariah.
