The books of 1 and 2 Kings were originally one book. Whereas in older Hebrew manuscripts, 1 and 2 Kings are one literary work (like 1 and 2 Samuel and 1 and 2 Chronicles), in the Septuagint (the Greek translation of the OT), the Vulgate (Latin translation) and most other versions, the work is divided into two books.

The historian of Kings refers to these works as his source, where additional information may be found. These references show how the historian of Kings used extensive sources selectively. The books are referred to by this formula, with slight variations: "Now the rest of the acts of [the king], and all that he did, behold, they are written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah/Israel.".

The books of Kings were originally one book in the ancient Hebrew manuscripts, and the writers of the Septuagint divided them. They were called the Third and Fourth Books of Kingdoms, although in the Hebrew manuscript the title was called Kings, exactly the same as we have in our English Bible.
