II Kings 14:28 KJV — Now the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, and all that he did, and his might, how he warred, and how he recovered Damascus, and Hamath, which belonged to Judah, for Israel, are they not written in the book of chronicles of the kings of Israel?
I searched for Jeroboam son of Joash in the books of Chronicles without success. If the bold letters are true, a detailed account of the recovery of Damascus and Hamath should be in either I Chronicles or II Chronicles.
Was some part of I & II Chronicles lost? Or are they originally a part of a larger, more comprehensive document called the "book of chronicles of the kings of Israel"?
If the "book of chronicles" in II Kings 14:28 refers to II Chronicles, the original scribes seemed to have made a mistake because Jeroboam son of Joash does not appear in II Chronicles. Chronologically, he should be mentioned somewhere around II Chronicles 25 & 26. However, it may be that I have failed to read a passage of the books of Chronicles which actually explains II Kings 14:28. But even the commentaries and cross references seem to evade this question. How come?
