1 H477 And Elisha H5030 the prophet H7121 called H259 one H1121 of the children H5030 of the prophets, H559 and said H2296 to him, Gird H4975 up your loins, H3947 and take H2088 this H6378 box H8081 of oil H3027 in your hand, H3212 and go H7433 to Ramothgilead:
2 H935 And when you come H8033 thither, H7200 look H8033 out there H3058 Jehu H1121 the son H3092 of Jehoshaphat H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi, H935 and go H6965 in, and make him arise H8432 up from among H251 his brothers, H935 and carry H2315 him to an inner H2315 chamber;
3 H3947 Then take H6378 the box H8081 of oil, H3332 and pour H5921 it on H7218 his head, H559 and say, H3541 Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD, H4886 I have anointed H4428 you king H5921 over H3478 Israel. H6605 Then open H1817 the door, H5127 and flee, H2442 and tarry not.
4 H5288 So the young H5288 man, even the young H5030 man the prophet, H3212 went H7433 to Ramothgilead.
5 H935 And when he came, H2009 behold, H8269 the captains H2428 of the host H3427 were sitting; H559 and he said, H1697 I have an errand H8269 to you, O captain. H3058 And Jehu H559 said, H4310 To which H3605 of all H559 us? And he said, H8269 To you, O captain.
6 H6965 And he arose, H935 and went H1004 into the house; H3332 and he poured H8081 the oil H413 on H7218 his head, H559 and said H3541 to him, Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel, H4886 I have anointed H4428 you king H413 over H5971 the people H3068 of the LORD, H413 even over H3478 Israel.
7 H5221 And you shall smite H1004 the house H256 of Ahab H113 your master, H5358 that I may avenge H1818 the blood H5650 of my servants H5030 the prophets, H1818 and the blood H3605 of all H5650 the servants H3068 of the LORD, H3027 at the hand H348 of Jezebel.
8 H3605 For the whole H1004 house H256 of Ahab H6 shall perish: H3772 and I will cut H256 off from Ahab H8366 him that urinates H7023 against the wall, H6113 and him that is shut H3478 up and left in Israel:
9 H5414 And I will make H1004 the house H256 of Ahab H1004 like the house H3379 of Jeroboam H1121 the son H5028 of Nebat, H1004 and like the house H1201 of Baasha H1121 the son H281 of Ahijah:
10 H3611 And the dogs H398 shall eat H348 Jezebel H2506 in the portion H3157 of Jezreel, H369 and there shall be none H6912 to bury H6605 her. And he opened H1817 the door, H5127 and fled.
11 H3058 Then Jehu H3318 came H3318 forth H5650 to the servants H113 of his lord: H559 and one said H7965 to him, Is all well? H4069 why H935 came H2088 this H7696 mad H559 fellow to you? And he said H3045 to them, You know H376 the man, H7879 and his communication.
12 H559 And they said, H8267 It is false; H559 tell H4994 us now. H559 And he said, H2063 Thus H2063 and thus H559 spoke H559 he to me, saying, H3541 Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD, H4886 I have anointed H4428 you king H413 over H3478 Israel.
13 H4116 Then they hurried, H3947 and took H376 every man H899 his garment, H7760 and put H8478 it under H413 him on H1634 the top H4609 of the stairs, H8628 and blew H7782 with trumpets, H559 saying, H3058 Jehu H4427 is king.
14 H3058 So Jehu H1121 the son H3092 of Jehoshaphat H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi H7194 conspired H413 against H3141 Joram. H3141 (Now Joram H8104 had kept H7433 Ramothgilead, H3605 he and all H3478 Israel, H6440 because H2371 of Hazael H4428 king H758 of Syria.
15 H4428 But king H3088 Joram H7725 was returned H7495 to be healed H3157 in Jezreel H4347 of the wounds H834 which H761 the Syrians H5221 had given H3898 him, when he fought H2371 with Hazael H4428 king H758 of Syria. H3058 ) And Jehu H559 said, H518 If H5315 it be your minds, H408 then let none H3318 go H3318 forth H6412 nor escape H5892 out of the city H3212 to go H5046 to tell H3157 it in Jezreel.
16 H3058 So Jehu H7392 rode H7393 in a chariot, H3212 and went H3157 to Jezreel; H3141 for Joram H7901 lay H8033 there. H274 And Ahaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H3381 was come H3381 down H7200 to see H3141 Joram.
17 H5975 And there stood H6822 a watchman H5921 on H4026 the tower H3157 in Jezreel, H7200 and he spied H8229 the company H3058 of Jehu H935 as he came, H559 and said, H7200 I see H8229 a company. H3088 And Joram H559 said, H3947 Take H7395 an horseman, H7971 and send H7125 to meet H559 them, and let him say, H7965 Is it peace?
18 H3212 So there went H7392 one on horseback H5483 H7125 to meet H559 him, and said, H3541 Thus H559 said H4428 the king, H7965 Is it peace? H3058 And Jehu H559 said, H4100 What H7965 have you to do with peace? H5437 turn H310 you behind H6822 me. And the watchman H5046 told, H559 saying, H4397 The messenger H935 came H7725 to them, but he comes H7725 not again.
19 H7971 Then he sent H8145 out a second H5483 on horseback, H935 which came H559 to them, and said, H3541 Thus H559 said H4428 the king, H7965 Is it peace? H3058 And Jehu H559 answered, H4100 What H7965 have you to do with peace? H5437 turn H310 you behind me.
20 H6822 And the watchman H5046 told, H559 saying, H935 He came H7725 even to them, and comes H7725 not again: H4491 and the driving H4491 is like the driving H3058 of Jehu H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi; H5090 for he drives H7697 furiously.
21 H3088 And Joram H559 said, H631 Make ready. H7393 And his chariot H631 was made ready. H3088 And Joram H4428 king H3478 of Israel H274 and Ahaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H3318 went H376 out, each H7393 in his chariot, H3318 and they went H7125 out against H3058 Jehu, H4672 and met H2513 him in the portion H5022 of Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite.
22 H1961 And it came H3088 to pass, when Joram H7200 saw H3058 Jehu, H559 that he said, H7965 Is it peace, H3058 Jehu? H559 And he answered, H4100 What H7965 peace, H5704 so long H2183 as the prostitutions H517 of your mother H348 Jezebel H3785 and her witchcrafts H7227 are so many?
23 H3088 And Joram H2015 turned H3027 his hands, H5127 and fled, H559 and said H274 to Ahaziah, H4820 There is treachery, H274 O Ahaziah.
24 H3058 And Jehu H7198 drew a bow H4390 with his full H3027 strength, H5221 and smote H3088 Jehoram H996 between H2220 his arms, H2678 and the arrow H3318 went H3820 out at his heart, H3766 and he sunk H7393 down in his chariot.
25 H559 Then said H920 Jehu to Bidkar H7991 his captain, H5375 Take H7993 up, and cast H2513 him in the portion H7704 of the field H5022 of Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite: H2142 for remember H7392 how that, when I and you rode H6776 together H310 after H256 Ahab H1 his father, H3068 the LORD H5375 laid H2088 this H4853 burden on him;
26 H7200 Surely I have seen H570 yesterday H1818 the blood H5022 of Naboth, H1818 and the blood H1121 of his sons, H559 said H3068 the LORD; H7999 and I will requite H2063 you in this H2513 plat, H5002 said H3068 the LORD. H6258 Now H5375 therefore take H7993 and cast H2513 him into the plat H1697 of ground, according to the word H3068 of the LORD.
27 H274 But when Ahaziah H4428 the king H3063 of Judah H7200 saw H5127 this, he fled H1870 by the way H1588 of the garden H1004 house. H3058 And Jehu H7291 followed H310 after H559 him, and said, H5221 Smite H1571 him also H4818 in the chariot. H4608 And they did so at the going H1483 up to Gur, H834 which H2991 is by Ibleam. H5127 And he fled H4023 to Megiddo, H4191 and died H8033 there.
28 H5650 And his servants H7392 carried H3389 him in a chariot to Jerusalem, H6912 and buried H6900 him in his sepulcher H1 with his fathers H5892 in the city H1732 of David.
29 H6240 And in the eleventh H8141 year H3088 of Joram H1121 the son H256 of Ahab H274 began Ahaziah H4427 to reign H5921 over H3063 Judah.
30 H3058 And when Jehu H935 was come H3157 to Jezreel, H348 Jezebel H8085 heard H7760 of it; and she painted H6320 H5869 her face, H3190 and tired H7218 her head, H8259 and looked H1157 out at H2474 a window.
31 H3058 And as Jehu H935 entered H8179 in at the gate, H559 she said, H2174 Had Zimri H7965 peace, H2026 who slew H113 his master?
32 H5375 And he lifted H6440 up his face H2474 to the window, H559 and said, H4310 Who H854 is on H4310 my side? who? H8259 And there looked H8147 out to him two H7969 or three H5631 eunuchs.
33 H559 And he said, H8058 Throw H8058 her down. H8058 So they threw H8058 her down: H1818 and some of her blood H5137 was sprinkled H413 on H7023 the wall, H413 and on H5483 the horses: H7429 and he stepped her under foot.
34 H935 And when he was come H398 in, he did eat H8354 and drink, H559 and said, H6485 Go, H4994 see now H2063 this H779 cursed H6912 woman, and bury H4428 her: for she is a king’s H1323 daughter.
35 H3212 And they went H6912 to bury H4672 her: but they found H3808 no H3588 more H518 H3588 of her than H518 H1538 the skull, H7272 and the feet, H3709 and the palms H3027 of her hands.
36 H7725 Why they came H7725 again, H5046 and told H559 him. And he said, H1931 This H1697 is the word H3068 of the LORD, H834 which H1696 he spoke H5650 by his servant H452 Elijah H8664 the Tishbite, H559 saying, H2506 In the portion H3157 of Jezreel H3611 shall dogs H398 eat H1320 the flesh H348 of Jezebel:
