1 H477 And Elisha H5030 the prophet H7121 called H259 one H1121 of the sons H5030 of the prophets, H559 and said H2296 unto him, Belt up H4975 your waist, H3947 and take H6378 this box H8081 of oil H3027 in your hand, H3212 and go H7433 to Ramoth–gilead:
2 H935 And when you come H7200 there, look out H3058 there Jehu H1121 the son H3092 of Jehoshaphat H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi, H935 and go in, H6965 and make him stand up H8432 from among H251 his brothers, H935 and bring H2315 him to a inner H2315 chamber;
3 H3947 Then take H6378 the box H8081 of oil, H3332 and pour H7218 it on his head, H559 and say, H559 Thus says H3068 the Lord, H4886 I have anointed H4428 you king H3478 over Israel. H6605 Then open H1817 the door, H5127 and flee, H2442 and stay not.
4 H5288 So the young man, H5288 even the young man H5030 the prophet, H3212 went H7433 to Ramoth–gilead.
5 H935 And when he came, H8269 behold, the captains H2428 of the army H3427 were sitting; H559 and he said, H1697 I have a message H8269 for you, O captain. H3058 And Jehu H559 said, H559 Unto which of all 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 H7218 on his head, H559 and said H559 unto him, Thus says H3068 the Lord H430 God H3478 of Israel, H4886 I have anointed H4428 you king H5971 over the people H3068 of the Lord, H3478 even over Israel.
7 H5221 And you shall strike 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 H5650 of all the servants H3068 of the Lord, H3027 at the hand H348 of Jezebel.
8 H1004 For the whole house H256 of Ahab H6 shall perish: H3772 and I will cut off H256 from Ahab H8366 him that urinates H7023 against the wall, H6113 and him that is shut up H5800 and left H3478 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, H6912 and there shall be none to bury H6605 her. And he opened H1817 the door, H5127 and fled.
11 H3058 Then Jehu H3318 came forth H5650 to the servants H113 of his lord: H559 and one said H7965 unto him, Is all well? H935 therefore came H7696 this mad H559 fellow to you? And he said H3045 unto them, You know H376 the man, H7879 and his communication.
12 H559 And they said, H8267 It is false; H5046 tell H559 us now. And he said, H559 Thus and thus spoke H559 he to me, saying, H559 Thus says H3068 the Lord, H4886 I have anointed H4428 you king H3478 over Israel.
13 H4116 Then they hurried, H3947 and took H376 every man H899 his garment, H7760 and put H1634 it under him on 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 H3141 against Joram. H3141 (Now Joram H8104 had kept H7433 Ramoth–gilead, H3478 he and all 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 H761 which the Syrians H5221 had given H3898 him, when he fought H2371 with Hazael H4428 king H758 of Syria.) H3058 And Jehu H559 said, H3426 If it be H5315 your minds, H408 then let none H3318 go 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 in a chariot, H3212 and went H3157 to Jezreel; H3141 for Joram H7901 lay H274 there. And Ahaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H3381 was come down H7200 to see H3141 Joram.
17 H5975 And there stood H6822 a watchman H4026 on 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 a 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 H7125 to meet H559 him, and said, H559 Thus says H4428 the king, H7965 Is it peace? H3058 And Jehu H559 said, H7965 What 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 not again.
19 H7971 Then he sent out H8145 a second H7392 on horseback, H935 which came H559 to them, and said, H559 Thus says H4428 the king, H7965 Is it peace? H3058 And Jehu H559 answered, H7965 What 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 unto them, and comes 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 out, H376 each H7393 in his chariot, H3318 and they went out H7125 against H3058 Jehu, H4672 and met H2513 him in the portion H5022 of Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite.
22 H3088 And it came to pass, when Joram H7200 saw H3058 Jehu, H559 that he said, H7965 Is it peace, H3058 Jehu? H559 And he answered, H7965 What peace, H5704 so long as H2183 the whoredoms 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 struck H3088 Jehoram H2220 between his arms, H2678 and the arrow H3318 went out H3820 at his heart, H3766 and he sunk down H7393 in his chariot.
25 H559 Then said H920 Jehu to Bidkar H7991 his captain, H5375 Take up, H7993 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 H4853 this burden upon him;
26 H7200 Surely I have seen H570 yesterday H1818 the blood H5022 of Naboth, H1818 and the blood H1121 of his sons, H5002 says H3068 the Lord; H7999 and I will repay H2513 you in this place, H5002 says H3068 the Lord. H5375 Now therefore take H7993 and cast H2513 him into the plot 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 Strike H4818 him also in the chariot. H4608 And they did so at the going up H1483 to Gur, H2991 which is by Ibleam. H5127 And he fled H4023 to Megiddo, H4191 and died there.
28 H5650 And his servants H7392 carried H3389 him in a chariot to Jerusalem, H6912 and buried H6900 him in his tomb H1 with his fathers H5892 in the city H1732 of David.
29 H6240 And in the eleventh H8141 year H3141 of Joram H1121 the son H256 of Ahab H274 began Ahaziah H4427 to reign H3063 over Judah.
30 H3058 And when Jehu H935 was come H3157 to Jezreel, H348 Jezebel H8085 heard H7760 of it; and she painted H5869 her face, H3190 and attired H7218 her head, H8259 and looked out H2474 at a window.
31 H3058 And as Jehu H935 entered in H8179 at the gate, H559 she said, H2174 Had Zimri H7965 peace, H2026 who killed H113 his master?
32 H5375 And he lifted up H6440 his face H2474 to the light, H559 and said, H8259 Who is on my side? who? And there looked out H8147 to him two H7969 or three H5631 eunuchs.
33 H559 And he said, H8058 Throw her down. H8058 So they threw her down: H1818 and some of her blood H5137 was sprinkled H7023 on the wall, H5483 and on the horses: H7429 and he trod her under foot.
34 H935 And when he was come in, H398 he did eat H8354 and drink, H559 and said, H6485 Go, H779 see now this 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 H518 no more of her than H1538 the skull, H7272 and the feet, H3709 and the palms H3027 of her hands.
36 H7725 Therefore they came again, H5046 and told H559 him. And he said, H1697 This is the word H3068 of the Lord, H1696 which he spoke H3027 by H5650 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:
