 IMHO this is simply the writer quoting his sources, as scholars do when
 citing passages from other works. The "Chronicles of the Kings of Israel"
 is certainly not the Biblical book(s) Chronicles DiB:ReY HaYYaMiYM.
 Another source referred to is the book of Jashar (Joshua 10:13; 2 Samuel
 1:18).

 Shalom
 Ben
