2 Kings 9:25-26

9:25 Jehu ordered 1  his officer Bidkar, “Pick him up and throw him into the part of the field that once belonged to Naboth of Jezreel. Remember, you and I were riding together behind his father Ahab, when the Lord pronounced this judgment on him, 9:26 ‘“Know for sure that I saw the shed blood of Naboth and his sons yesterday,” says the Lord, “and that I will give you what you deserve right here in this plot of land,” 2  says the Lord.’ So now pick him up and throw him into this plot of land, just as the Lord said.” 3 

2 Kings 9:33-37

9:33 He said, “Throw her down!” So they threw her down, and when she hit the ground, 4  her blood splattered against the wall and the horses, and Jehu drove his chariot over her. 5  9:34 He went inside and had a meal. 6  Then he said, “Dispose of this accursed woman’s corpse. Bury her, for after all, she was a king’s daughter.” 7  9:35 But when they went to bury her, they found nothing left but 8  the skull, feet, and palms of the hands. 9:36 When they went back and told him, he said, “The Lord’s word through his servant, Elijah the Tishbite, has come to pass. He warned, 9  ‘In the plot of land at Jezreel, dogs will devour Jezebel’s flesh. 9:37 Jezebel’s corpse will be like manure on the surface of the ground in the plot of land at Jezreel. People will not be able to even recognize her.’” 10
