Shallum of Israel ( ) was the king of the ancient Kingdom of Israel, and the son of Jabesh. He "conspired against Zachariah, and smote him before the people, and slew him, and reigned in his stead" (2 Kings 15:10). He reigned only "a month of days in Samariamarker" (15:13) before Menahem rose up, put him to death (2 Kings 15:14, 15, 17), and became king in his stead.

William F. Albright has dated his reign to 745 BC, while E. R. Thiele offers the date 752 BC.
