Menahem

(mĕn`əhĕm), d. c.737 B.C., king of Israel (c.749–c.737 B.C.). He was governor of Tirzah and murdered Shallum for the throne of Samaria. Menahem was made a tributary by Tiglathpileser III of Assyria, who helped him to gain his throne. The book of Kings represents him unfavorably. His son, Pekahiah, succeeded him.
