I actually read for the role of Max, which was cast as the awesome Omri Katz, who I worked with when I was 17 on Eerie, Indiana.
He neither tells us that Omri subdued Moab, nor that he was defeated by Syria.
They even speak of Jehu the destroyer of Omri's dynasty, as "the son of Omri."
And had not the house of Omri been, in some sense, sanctioned by Heaven?
Omri's son, Ahab, proved an even more able general than his father.
All the reign of Omri, and half of that of Ahab would, accordingly, be but twenty-three years.
That of Omri was built of large stones and rested on the native rock.
Jehu's reforms concluded the long struggle of Elijah and Elisha against the house of Omri and its half-heathen religion.
My friend Omri took me to the cell of one of the most famous of these.
Here, therefore, there is an abbreviation of the reign of Omri and Ahab by at least 10 years.
