2 Kings 10

And Ahab
<0256>
had seventy
<07657>
sons
<01121>
in Samaria
<08111>_.
And Jehu
<03058>
wrote
<03789> (8799)
letters
<05612>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
to Samaria
<08111>_,
unto the rulers
<08269>
of Jezreel
<03157>_,
to the elders
<02205>_,
and to them that brought up
<0539> (8802)
Ahab's
<0256>
[children], saying
<0559> (8800)_,
{them...: Heb. nourishers}
Now as soon as this letter
<05612>
cometh
<0935> (8800)
to you, seeing your master's
<0113>
sons
<01121>
[are] with you, and [there are] with you chariots
<07393>
and horses
<05483>_,
a fenced
<04013>
city
<05892>
also, and armour
<05402>_;
Look even out
<07200> (8804)
the best
<02896>
and meetest
<03477>
of your master's
<0113>
sons
<01121>_,
and set
<07760> (8804)
[him] on his father's
<01>
throne
<03678>_,
and fight
<03898> (8734)
for your master's
<0113>
house
<01004>_.
But they were exceedingly
<03966> <03966>
afraid
<03372> (8799)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, two
<08147>
kings
<04428>
stood
<05975> (8804)
not before
<06440>
him: how then shall we stand
<05975> (8799)_?
And he that [was] over the house
<01004>_,
and he that [was] over the city
<05892>_,
the elders
<02205>
also, and the bringers up
<0539> (8802)
[of the children], sent
<07971> (8799)
to Jehu
<03058>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
We [are] thy servants
<05650>_,
and will do
<06213> (8799)
all that thou shalt bid
<0559> (8799)
us; we will not make any
<0376>
king
<04427> (8686)_:
do
<06213> (8798)
thou [that which is] good
<02896>
in thine eyes
<05869>_.
Then he wrote
<03789> (8799)
a letter
<05612>
the second time
<08145>
to them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
If ye [be] mine, and [if] ye will hearken
<08085> (8802)
unto my voice
<06963>_,
take
<03947> (8798)
ye the heads
<07218>
of the men
<0582>
your master's
<0113>
sons
<01121>_,
and come
<0935> (8798)
to me to Jezreel
<03157>
by to morrow
<04279>
this time
<06256>_.
Now the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_,
[being] seventy
<07657>
persons
<0376>_,
[were] with the great men
<01419>
of the city
<05892>_,
which brought them up
<01431> (8764)_.
{mine: Heb. for me}
And it came to pass, when the letter
<05612>
came
<0935> (8800)
to them, that they took
<03947> (8799)
the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_,
and slew
<07819> (8799)
seventy
<07657>
persons
<0376>_,
and put
<07760> (8799)
their heads
<07218>
in baskets
<01731>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
him [them] to Jezreel
<03157>_.
And there came
<0935> (8799)
a messenger
<04397>_,
and told
<05046> (8686)
him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
They have brought
<0935> (8689)
the heads
<07218>
of the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Lay
<07760> (8798)
ye them in two
<08147>
heaps
<06652>
at the entering in
<06607>
of the gate
<08179>
until the morning
<01242>_.
And it came to pass in the morning
<01242>_,
that he went out
<03318> (8799)_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
to all the people
<05971>_,
Ye [be] righteous
<06662>_:
behold, I conspired
<07194> (8804)
against my master
<0113>_,
and slew
<02026> (8799)
him: but who slew
<05221> (8689)
all these?
Know
<03045> (8798)
now
<0645>
that there shall fall
<05307> (8799)
unto the earth
<0776>
nothing of the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which the LORD
<03068>
spake
<01696> (8765)
concerning the house
<01004>
of Ahab
<0256>_:
for the LORD
<03068>
hath done
<06213> (8804)
[that] which he spake
<01696> (8765)
by
<03027>
his servant
<05650>
Elijah
<0452>_.
{by: Heb. by the hand of}
So Jehu
<03058>
slew
<05221> (8686)
all that remained
<07604> (8737)
of the house
<01004>
of Ahab
<0256>
in Jezreel
<03157>_,
and all his great men
<01419>_,
and his kinsfolks
<03045> (8794)_,
and his priests
<03548>_,
until he left
<07604> (8689)
him none remaining
<08300>_.
{kinsfolks: or, acquaintance}
And he arose
<06965> (8799)
and departed
<0935> (8799)_,
and came
<03212> (8799)
to Samaria
<08111>_.
[And] as he [was] at the shearing
<07462> (8802)
house
<01004> (8677) <01044>
in the way
<01870>_,
{shearing...: Heb. house of shepherds binding sheep}
Jehu
<03058>
met
<04672> (8804)
with the brethren
<0251>
of Ahaziah
<0274>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Who [are] ye? And they answered
<0559> (8799)_,
We [are] the brethren
<0251>
of Ahaziah
<0274>_;
and we go down
<03381> (8799)
to salute
<07965>
the children
<01121>
of the king
<04428>
and the children
<01121>
of the queen
<01377>_.
{met with: Heb. found} {to salute...: Heb. to the peace of, etc}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Take
<08610> (8798)
them alive
<02416>_.
And they took
<08610> (8799)
them alive
<02416>_,
and slew
<07819> (8799)
them at the pit
<0953>
of the shearing house
<01044>_,
[even] two
<08147>
and forty
<0705>
men
<0376>_;
neither left
<07604> (8689)
he any
<0376>
of them.
And when he was departed
<03212> (8799)
thence, he lighted
<04672> (8799)
on Jehonadab
<03082>
the son
<01121>
of Rechab
<07394>
[coming] to meet
<07125> (8800)
him: and he saluted
<01288> (8762)
him, and said
<0559> (8799)
to him, Is
<03426>
thine heart
<03824>
right
<03477>_,
as my heart
<03824>
[is] with thy heart
<03824>_?
And Jehonadab
<03082>
answered
<0559> (8799)_,
It is
<03426>_.
If it be, give
<05414> (8798)
[me] thine hand
<03027>_.
And he gave
<05414> (8799)
[him] his hand
<03027>_;
and he took him up
<05927> (8686)
to him into the chariot
<04818>_.
{lighted on: Heb. found} {saluted: Heb. blessed}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Come
<03212> (8798)
with me, and see
<07200> (8798)
my zeal
<07068>
for the LORD
<03068>_.
So they made him ride
<07392> (8686)
in his chariot
<07393>_.
And when he came
<0935> (8799)
to Samaria
<08111>_,
he slew
<05221> (8686)
all that remained
<07604> (8737)
unto Ahab
<0256>
in Samaria
<08111>_,
till he had destroyed
<08045> (8689)
him, according to the saying
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which he spake
<01696> (8765)
to Elijah
<0452>_.
And Jehu
<03058>
gathered
<06908> (0)
all the people
<05971>
together
<06908> (8799)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Ahab
<0256>
served
<05647> (8804)
Baal
<01168>
a little
<04592>_;
[but] Jehu
<03058>
shall serve
<05647> (8799)
him much
<07235> (8687)_.
Now therefore call
<07121> (8798)
unto me all the prophets
<05030>
of Baal
<01168>_,
all his servants
<05647> (8802)_,
and all his priests
<03548>_;
let none
<0376>
be wanting
<06485> (8735)_:
for I have a great
<01419>
sacrifice
<02077>
[to do] to Baal
<01168>_;
whosoever shall be wanting
<06485> (8735)_,
he shall not live
<02421> (8799)_.
But Jehu
<03058>
did
<06213> (8804)
[it] in subtilty
<06122>_,
to the intent that he might destroy
<06> (8687)
the worshippers
<05647> (8802)
of Baal
<01168>_.
And Jehu
<03058>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Proclaim
<06942> (8761)
a solemn assembly
<06116>
for Baal
<01168>_.
And they proclaimed
<07121> (8799)
[it]. {Proclaim: Heb. Sanctify}
And Jehu
<03058>
sent
<07971> (8799)
through all Israel
<03478>_:
and all the worshippers
<05647> (8802)
of Baal
<01168>
came
<0935> (8799)_,
so that there was not a man
<0376>
left
<07604> (8738)
that came
<0935> (8804)
not. And they came
<0935> (8799)
into the house
<01004>
of Baal
<01168>_;
and the house
<01004>
of Baal
<01168>
was full
<04390> (8735)
from one end
<06310>
to another
<06310>_.
{full...: or, so full that they stood mouth to mouth}
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him that [was] over the vestry
<04458>_,
Bring forth
<03318> (8685)
vestments
<03830>
for all the worshippers
<05647> (8802)
of Baal
<01168>_.
And he brought them forth
<03318> (8686)
vestments
<04403>_.
And Jehu
<03058>
went
<0935> (8799)_,
and Jehonadab
<03082>
the son
<01121>
of Rechab
<07394>_,
into the house
<01004>
of Baal
<01168>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto the worshippers
<05647> (8802)
of Baal
<01168>_,
Search
<02664> (8761)_,
and look
<07200> (8798)
that there be
<03426>
here with you none of the servants
<05650>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
but the worshippers
<05647> (8802)
of Baal
<01168>
only.
And when they went in
<0935> (8799)
to offer
<06213> (8800)
sacrifices
<02077>
and burnt offerings
<05930>_,
Jehu
<03058>
appointed
<07760> (8804)
fourscore
<08084>
men
<0376>
without
<02351>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[If] any
<0376>
of the men
<0582>
whom I have brought
<0935> (8688)
into your hands
<03027>
escape
<04422> (8735)_,
[he that letteth him go], his life
<05315>
[shall be] for the life
<05315>
of him.
And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of offering
<06213> (8800)
the burnt offering
<05930>_,
that Jehu
<03058>
said
<0559> (8799)
to the guard
<07323> (8801)
and to the captains
<07991>_,
Go in
<0935> (8798)_,
[and] slay
<05221> (8685)
them; let none
<0376>
come forth
<03318> (8799)_.
And they smote
<05221> (8686)
them with the edge
<06310>
of the sword
<02719>_;
and the guard
<07323> (8801)
and the captains
<07991>
cast [them] out
<07993> (8686)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
to the city
<05892>
of the house
<01004>
of Baal
<01168>_.
{the edge: Heb. the mouth}
And they brought forth
<03318> (8686)
the images
<04676>
out of the house
<01004>
of Baal
<01168>_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
them. {images: Heb. statues}
And they brake down
<05422> (8799)
the image
<04676>
of Baal
<01168>_,
and brake down
<05422> (8799)
the house
<01004>
of Baal
<01168>_,
and made
<07760> (8799)
it a draught house
<04163> (8675) <04280>
unto this day
<03117>_.
Thus Jehu
<03058>
destroyed
<08045> (8686)
Baal
<01168>
out of Israel
<03478>_.
Howbeit [from] the sins
<02399>
of Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_,
who made Israel
<03478>
to sin
<02398> (8689)_,
Jehu
<03058>
departed
<05493> (8804)
not from after
<0310>
them, [to wit], the golden
<02091>
calves
<05695>
that [were] in Bethel
<01008>_,
and that [were] in Dan
<01835>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jehu
<03058>_,
Because thou hast done well
<02895> (8689)
in executing
<06213> (8800)
[that which is] right
<03477>
in mine eyes
<05869>_,
[and] hast done
<06213> (8804)
unto the house
<01004>
of Ahab
<0256>
according to all that [was] in mine heart
<03824>_,
thy children
<01121>
of the fourth
<07243>
[generation] shall sit
<03427> (8799)
on the throne
<03678>
of Israel
<03478>_.
But Jehu
<03058>
took no heed
<08104> (8804)
to walk
<03212> (8800)
in the law
<08451>
of the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
with all his heart
<03824>_:
for he departed
<05493> (8804)
not from the sins
<02403>
of Jeroboam
<03379>_,
which made Israel
<03478>
to sin
<02398> (8689)_.
{took...: Heb. observed not}
In those days
<03117>
the LORD
<03068>
began
<02490> (8689)
to cut
<07096> (0)
Israel
<03478>
short
<07096> (8763)_:
and Hazael
<02371>
smote
<05221> (8686)
them in all the coasts
<01366>
of Israel
<03478>_;
{to cut: Heb. to cut off the ends}
From Jordan
<03383>
eastward
<04217> <08121>_,
all the land
<0776>
of Gilead
<01568>_,
the Gadites
<01425>_,
and the Reubenites
<07206>_,
and the Manassites
<04520>_,
from Aroer
<06177>_,
which [is] by the river
<05158>
Arnon
<0769>_,
even Gilead
<01568>
and Bashan
<01316>_.
{eastward: Heb. toward the rising of the sun} {even...: or, even to Gilead and Bashan}
Now the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Jehu
<03058>_,
and all that he did
<06213> (8804)_,
and all his might
<01369>_,
[are] they not written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the chronicles
<01697> <03117>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_?
And Jehu
<03058>
slept
<07901> (8799)
with his fathers
<01>_:
and they buried
<06912> (8799)
him in Samaria
<08111>_.
And Jehoahaz
<03059>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead.
And the time
<03117>
that Jehu
<03058>
reigned
<04427> (8804)
over Israel
<03478>
in Samaria
<08111>
[was] twenty
<06242>
and eight
<08083>
years
<08141>_.
{the time: Heb. the days were}
