Elah (Aramaic for God) (r. 930-929 BC by James Ussher,[1] or 886-885 BC by Thiele[2]) was the fourth king of the Northern Kingdom of Israel.[3] He reigned for two years. His reign was remarkable only for how it ended.

His father was Baasha, and Elah's death fulfilled a baleful prophecy given Baasha toward the end of his reign because of his idolatry. Elah's general, Zimri, surprised him while he was intoxicating himself in the home of his steward, Arza. Zimri killed Elah, took his throne, and killed all of Baasha's remaining male relatives and associates.
