1 H477 And Elisha H5030 the prophet H7121 [H8804] called H259 one H1121 of the children H5030 of the prophets H559 [H8799] , and said H2296 [H8798] to him, Gird up H4975 thy loins H3947 [H8798] , and take H6378 this box H8081 of oil H3027 in thy hand H3212 [H8798] , and go H7433 H1568 to Ramothgilead:
2 H935 [H8804] And when thou comest H7200 [H8798] there, find H3058 Jehu H1121 the son H3092 of Jehoshaphat H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi H935 [H8804] , and go in H6965 [H8689] , and make him arise up H8432 from among H251 his brethren H935 [H8689] , and take H2315 him to an inner H2315 chamber;
3 H3947 [H8804] Then take H6378 the box H8081 of oil H3332 [H8804] , and pour H7218 it on his head H559 [H8804] , and say H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H3068 the LORD H4886 [H8804] , I have anointed H4428 thee king H3478 over Israel H6605 [H8804] . Then open H1817 the door H5127 [H8804] , and flee H2442 [H8762] , and tarry not.
4 H5288 So the young man H5288 , even the young man H5030 the prophet H3212 [H8799] , went H7433 H1568 to Ramothgilead.
5 H935 [H8799] And when he came H8269 , behold, the captains H2428 of the host H3427 [H8802] were sitting H559 [H8799] ; and he said H1697 , I have an errand H8269 to thee, O captain H3058 . And Jehu H559 [H8799] said H559 [H8799] , To which of us all? And he said H8269 , To thee, O captain.
6 H6965 [H8799] And he arose H935 [H8799] , and went H1004 into the house H3332 [H8799] ; and he poured H8081 the oil H7218 on his head H559 [H8799] , and said H559 [H8804] to him, Thus saith H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H4886 [H8804] , I have anointed H4428 thee king H5971 over the people H3068 of the LORD H3478 , even over Israel.
7 H5221 [H8689] And thou shalt smite H1004 the house H256 of Ahab H113 thy master H5358 [H8765] , 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 [H8804] shall perish H3772 [H8689] : and I will cut off H256 from Ahab H8366 H7023 [H8688] the males H6113 [H8803] , both bound H5800 [H8803] and free H3478 in Israel:
9 H5414 [H8804] 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 [H8799] shall eat H348 Jezebel H2506 in the portion H3157 of Jezreel H6912 [H8802] , and there shall be none to bury H6605 [H8799] her. And he opened H1817 the door H5127 [H8799] , and fled.
11 H3058 Then Jehu H3318 [H8804] came forth H5650 to the servants H113 of his lord H559 [H8799] : and one said H7965 to him, Is all well H935 [H8804] ? Why came H7696 [H8794] this mad H559 [H8799] fellow to thee? And he said H3045 [H8804] to them, Ye know H376 the man H7879 , and his communication.
12 H559 [H8799] And they said H8267 , It is false H5046 [H8685] ; tell H559 [H8799] us now. And he said H559 [H8804] , Thus and thus he spoke H559 [H8800] to me, saying H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H3068 the LORD H4886 [H8804] , I have anointed H4428 thee king H3478 over Israel.
13 H4116 [H8762] Then they hasted H3947 [H8799] , and took H376 every man H899 his garment H7760 [H8799] , and put H1634 it under him on the top H4609 of the stairs H8628 [H8799] , and blew H7782 with trumpets H559 [H8799] , saying H3058 , Jehu H4427 [H8804] is king.
14 H3058 So Jehu H1121 the son H3092 of Jehoshaphat H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi H7194 [H8691] conspired H3141 against Joram H3141 . (Now Joram H8104 [H8802] had kept H7433 H1568 Ramothgilead H3478 , he and all Israel H6440 , because H2371 of Hazael H4428 king H758 of Syria.
15 H4428 But king H3088 Joram H7725 [H8799] had returned H7495 [H8692] to be healed H3157 in Jezreel H4347 of the wounds H761 which the Syrians H5221 [H8686] had given H3898 [H8736] him, when he fought H2371 with Hazael H4428 king H758 of Syria H3058 .) And Jehu H559 [H8799] said H3426 , If it is H5315 your minds H408 , then let none H3318 [H8799] go forth H6412 nor escape H5892 from the city H3212 [H8800] to go H5046 [H8687] to tell H3157 it in Jezreel.
16 H3058 So Jehu H7392 [H8799] rode in a chariot H3212 [H8799] , and went H3157 to Jezreel H3141 ; for Joram H7901 [H8802] lay H274 there. And Ahaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H3381 [H8804] had come down H7200 [H8800] to see H3141 Joram.
17 H5975 [H8802] And there stood H6822 [H8802] a watchman H4026 on the tower H3157 in Jezreel H7200 [H8799] , and he spied H8229 the company H3058 of Jehu H935 [H8800] as he came H559 [H8799] , and said H7200 [H8802] , I see H8229 a company H3088 . And Joram H559 [H8799] said H3947 [H8798] , Take H7395 an horseman H7971 [H8798] , and send H7125 [H8800] to meet H559 [H8799] them, and let him say H7965 , Is it peace?
18 H3212 [H8799] So there went H7392 H5483 [H8802] one on horseback H7125 [H8800] to meet H559 [H8799] him, and said H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H4428 the king H7965 , Is it peace H3058 ? And Jehu H559 [H8799] said H7965 , What hast thou to do with peace H5437 [H8798] ? turn H310 thee behind H6822 [H8802] me. And the watchman H5046 [H8686] told H559 [H8800] , saying H4397 , The messenger H935 [H8804] came H7725 [H8804] to them, but he doth not return.
19 H7971 [H8799] Then he sent out H8145 a second H7392 H5483 [H8802] on horseback H935 [H8799] , who came H559 [H8799] to them, and said H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H4428 the king H7965 , Is it peace H3058 ? And Jehu H559 [H8799] answered H7965 , What hast thou to do with peace H5437 [H8798] ? turn H310 thee behind me.
20 H6822 [H8802] And the watchman H5046 [H8686] told H559 [H8800] , saying H935 [H8804] , He came H7725 [H8804] even to them, and doth not return H4491 : and the driving H4491 is like the driving H3058 of Jehu H1121 the son H5250 of Nimshi H5090 [H8799] ; for he driveth H7697 furiously.
21 H3088 And Joram H559 [H8799] said H631 [H8798] , Make ready H7393 . And his chariot H631 [H8799] was made ready H3088 . And Joram H4428 king H3478 of Israel H274 and Ahaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H3318 [H8799] went out H376 , each H7393 in his chariot H3318 [H8799] , and they went out H7125 [H8800] against H3058 Jehu H4672 [H8799] , and met H2513 him in the portion H5022 of Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite.
22 H3088 And it came to pass, when Joram H7200 [H8800] saw H3058 Jehu H559 [H8799] , that he said H7965 , Is it peace H3058 , Jehu H559 [H8799] ? And he answered H7965 , What peace H5704 , so long as H2183 the harlotries H517 of thy mother H348 Jezebel H3785 and her witchcrafts H7227 are so many?
23 H3088 And Joram H2015 [H8799] turned H3027 his hands H5127 [H8799] , and fled H559 [H8799] , and said H274 to Ahaziah H4820 , There is treachery H274 , O Ahaziah.
24 H3058 And Jehu H7198 drew a bow H4390 [H8765] with his full H3027 strength H5221 [H8686] , and smote H3088 Jehoram H2220 between his arms H2678 , and the arrow H3318 [H8799] went out H3820 at his heart H3766 [H8799] , and he sunk down H7393 in his chariot.
25 H559 [H8799] Then said H920 Jehu to Bidkar H7991 his captain H5375 [H8798] , Take up H7993 [H8685] , and cast H2513 him into the portion H7704 of the field H5022 of Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite H2142 [H8798] : for remember H7392 [H8802] how that, when I and thou rode H6776 together H310 after H256 Ahab H1 his father H3068 , the LORD H5375 [H8804] laid H4853 this burden upon him;
26 H7200 [H8804] Surely I saw H570 yesterday H1818 the blood H5022 of Naboth H1818 , and the blood H1121 of his sons H5002 [H8803] , saith H3068 the LORD H7999 [H8765] ; and I will repay H2513 thee in this plot H5002 [H8803] , saith H3068 the LORD H5375 [H8798] . Now therefore take H7993 [H8685] 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 [H8804] saw H5127 [H8799] this, he fled H1870 by the way H1588 of the garden H1004 house H3058 . And Jehu H7291 H310 [H8799] followed H559 [H8799] him, and said H5221 [H8685] , Smite H4818 him also in the chariot H4608 . And they did so at the ascent of H1483 Gur H2991 , which is by Ibleam H5127 [H8799] . And he fled H4023 to Megiddo H4191 [H8799] , and died there.
28 H5650 And his servants H7392 [H8686] carried H3389 him in a chariot to Jerusalem H6912 [H8799] , and buried H6900 him in his sepulchre H1 with his fathers H5892 in the city H1732 of David.
29 H259 H6240 H8141 And in the eleventh H8141 year H3141 of Joram H1121 the son H256 of Ahab H274 began Ahaziah H4427 [H8804] to reign H3063 over Judah.
30 H3058 And when Jehu H935 [H8799] had come H3157 to Jezreel H348 , Jezebel H8085 [H8804] heard H7760 H6320 [H8799] of it; and she painted H5869 her face H3190 [H8686] , and adorned H7218 her head H8259 [H8686] , and looked out H2474 at a window.
31 H3058 And as Jehu H935 [H8804] entered H8179 the gate H559 [H8799] , she said H2174 , Had Zimri H7965 peace H2026 [H8802] , who slew H113 his master?
32 H5375 [H8799] And he lifted up H6440 his face H2474 to the window H559 [H8799] , and said H8259 [H8686] , Who is on my side? who? And there looked out H8147 to him two H7969 or three H5631 eunuchs.
33 H559 [H8799] And he said H8058 [H8798] , Throw her down H8058 [H8799] . So they threw her down H1818 : and some of her blood H5137 [H8799] was sprinkled H7023 on the wall H5483 , and on the horses H7429 [H8799] : and he trod her under foot.
34 H935 [H8799] And when he had come in H398 [H8799] , he ate H8354 [H8799] and drank H559 [H8799] , and said H6485 [H8798] , Go H779 [H8803] , see now this cursed H6912 [H8798] woman, and bury H4428 her: for she is a king's H1323 daughter.
35 H3212 [H8799] And they went H6912 [H8800] to bury H4672 [H8804] 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 [H8799] Therefore they came again H5046 [H8686] , and told H559 [H8799] him. And he said H1697 , This is the word H3068 of the LORD H1696 [H8765] , which he spoke H3027 by H5650 his servant H452 Elijah H8664 the Tishbite H559 [H8800] , saying H2506 , In the portion H3157 of Jezreel H3611 shall dogs H398 [H8799] eat H1320 the flesh H348 of Jezebel:
