10:1 And Ahab [H256] had seventy [H7657] sons [H1121] in Samaria [H8111] . And Jehu [H3058] wrote [H3789] letters [H5612] , and sent [H7971] to Samaria [H8111] , unto the rulers [H8269] of Jezreel [H3157] , to the elders [H2205] , and to them that brought up [H539] Ahab's [H256] [children], saying [H559] ,(them: Heb. nourishers)

10:2 Now as soon as this letter [H5612] cometh [H935] to you, seeing your master's [H113] sons [H1121] [are] with you, and [there are] with you chariots [H7393] and horses [H5483] , a fenced [H4013] city [H5892] also, and armour [H5402] ;

10:3 Look even out [H7200] the best [H2896] and meetest [H3477] of your master's [H113] sons [H1121] , and set [H7760] [him] on his father's [H1] throne [H3678] , and fight [H3898] for your master's [H113] house [H1004] .

10:4 But they were exceedingly [H3966] [H3966] afraid [H3372] , and said [H559] , Behold, two [H8147] kings [H4428] stood [H5975] not before [H6440] him: how then shall we stand [H5975] ?

10:5 And he that [was] over the house [H1004] , and he that [was] over the city [H5892] , the elders [H2205] also, and the bringers up [H539] [of the children], sent [H7971] to Jehu [H3058] , saying [H559] , We [are] thy servants [H5650] , and will do [H6213] all that thou shalt bid [H559] us; we will not make any [H376] king [H4427] : do [H6213] thou [that which is] good [H2896] in thine eyes [H5869] .

10:6 Then he wrote [H3789] a letter [H5612] the second time [H8145] to them, saying [H559] , If ye [be] mine, and [if] ye will hearken [H8085] unto my voice [H6963] , take [H3947] ye the heads [H7218] of the men [H582] your master's [H113] sons [H1121] , and come [H935] to me to Jezreel [H3157] by to morrow [H4279] this time [H6256] . Now the king's [H4428] sons [H1121] , [being] seventy [H7657] persons [H376] , [were] with the great men [H1419] of the city [H5892] , which brought them up [H1431] .(mine: Heb. for me)

10:7 And it came to pass, when the letter [H5612] came [H935] to them, that they took [H3947] the king's [H4428] sons [H1121] , and slew [H7819] seventy [H7657] persons [H376] , and put [H7760] their heads [H7218] in baskets [H1731] , and sent [H7971] him [them] to Jezreel [H3157] .

10:8 And there came [H935] a messenger [H4397] , and told [H5046] him, saying [H559] , They have brought [H935] the heads [H7218] of the king's [H4428] sons [H1121] . And he said [H559] , Lay [H7760] ye them in two [H8147] heaps [H6652] at the entering in [H6607] of the gate [H8179] until the morning [H1242] .

10:9 And it came to pass in the morning [H1242] , that he went out [H3318] , and stood [H5975] , and said [H559] to all the people [H5971] , Ye [be] righteous [H6662] : behold, I conspired [H7194] against my master [H113] , and slew [H2026] him: but who slew [H5221] all these?

10:10 Know [H3045] now [H645] that there shall fall [H5307] unto the earth [H776] nothing of the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] , which the LORD [H3068] spake [H1696] concerning the house [H1004] of Ahab [H256] : for the LORD [H3068] hath done [H6213] [that] which he spake [H1696] by [H3027] his servant [H5650] Elijah [H452] .(by: Heb. by the hand of)

10:11 So Jehu [H3058] slew [H5221] all that remained [H7604] of the house [H1004] of Ahab [H256] in Jezreel [H3157] , and all his great men [H1419] , and his kinsfolks [H3045] , and his priests [H3548] , until he left [H7604] him none remaining [H8300] .(kinsfolks: or, acquaintance)

10:12 And he arose [H6965] and departed [H935] , and came [H3212] to Samaria [H8111] . [And] as he [was] at the shearing [H7462] house [H1004] [H1044] in the way [H1870] ,(shearing: Heb. house of shepherds binding sheep)

10:13 Jehu [H3058] met [H4672] with the brethren [H251] of Ahaziah [H274] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , and said [H559] , Who [are] ye? And they answered [H559] , We [are] the brethren [H251] of Ahaziah [H274] ; and we go down [H3381] to salute [H7965] the children [H1121] of the king [H4428] and the children [H1121] of the queen [H1377] .(met with: Heb. found)(to salute: Heb. to the peace of, etc)

10:14 And he said [H559] , Take [H8610] them alive [H2416] . And they took [H8610] them alive [H2416] , and slew [H7819] them at the pit [H953] of the shearing house [H1044] , [even] two [H8147] and forty [H705] men [H376] ; neither left [H7604] he any [H376] of them.

10:15 And when he was departed [H3212] thence, he lighted [H4672] on Jehonadab [H3082] the son [H1121] of Rechab [H7394] [coming] to meet [H7125] him: and he saluted [H1288] him, and said [H559] to him, Is [H3426] thine heart [H3824] right [H3477] , as my heart [H3824] [is] with thy heart [H3824] ? And Jehonadab [H3082] answered [H559] , It is [H3426] . If it be, give [H5414] [me] thine hand [H3027] . And he gave [H5414] [him] his hand [H3027] ; and he took him up [H5927] to him into the chariot [H4818] .(lighted on: Heb. found)(saluted: Heb. blessed)

10:16 And he said [H559] , Come [H3212] with me, and see [H7200] my zeal [H7068] for the LORD [H3068] . So they made him ride [H7392] in his chariot [H7393] .

10:17 And when he came [H935] to Samaria [H8111] , he slew [H5221] all that remained [H7604] unto Ahab [H256] in Samaria [H8111] , till he had destroyed [H8045] him, according to the saying [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] , which he spake [H1696] to Elijah [H452] .

10:18 And Jehu [H3058] gathered [H6908] all the people [H5971] together [H6908] , and said [H559] unto them, Ahab [H256] served [H5647] Baal [H1168] a little [H4592] ; [but] Jehu [H3058] shall serve [H5647] him much [H7235] .

10:19 Now therefore call [H7121] unto me all the prophets [H5030] of Baal [H1168] , all his servants [H5647] , and all his priests [H3548] ; let none [H376] be wanting [H6485] : for I have a great [H1419] sacrifice [H2077] [to do] to Baal [H1168] ; whosoever shall be wanting [H6485] , he shall not live [H2421] . But Jehu [H3058] did [H6213] [it] in subtilty [H6122] , to the intent that he might destroy [H6] the worshippers [H5647] of Baal [H1168] .

10:20 And Jehu [H3058] said [H559] , Proclaim [H6942] a solemn assembly [H6116] for Baal [H1168] . And they proclaimed [H7121] [it].(Proclaim: Heb. Sanctify)

10:21 And Jehu [H3058] sent [H7971] through all Israel [H3478] : and all the worshippers [H5647] of Baal [H1168] came [H935] , so that there was not a man [H376] left [H7604] that came [H935] not. And they came [H935] into the house [H1004] of Baal [H1168] ; and the house [H1004] of Baal [H1168] was full [H4390] from one end [H6310] to another [H6310] .(full: or, so full that they stood mouth to mouth)

10:22 And he said [H559] unto him that [was] over the vestry [H4458] , Bring forth [H3318] vestments [H3830] for all the worshippers [H5647] of Baal [H1168] . And he brought them forth [H3318] vestments [H4403] .

10:23 And Jehu [H3058] went [H935] , and Jehonadab [H3082] the son [H1121] of Rechab [H7394] , into the house [H1004] of Baal [H1168] , and said [H559] unto the worshippers [H5647] of Baal [H1168] , Search [H2664] , and look [H7200] that there be [H3426] here with you none of the servants [H5650] of the LORD [H3068] , but the worshippers [H5647] of Baal [H1168] only.

10:24 And when they went in [H935] to offer [H6213] sacrifices [H2077] and burnt offerings [H5930] , Jehu [H3058] appointed [H7760] fourscore [H8084] men [H376] without [H2351] , and said [H559] , [If] any [H376] of the men [H582] whom I have brought [H935] into your hands [H3027] escape [H4422] , [he that letteth him go], his life [H5315] [shall be] for the life [H5315] of him.

10:25 And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end [H3615] of offering [H6213] the burnt offering [H5930] , that Jehu [H3058] said [H559] to the guard [H7323] and to the captains [H7991] , Go in [H935] , [and] slay [H5221] them; let none [H376] come forth [H3318] . And they smote [H5221] them with the edge [H6310] of the sword [H2719] ; and the guard [H7323] and the captains [H7991] cast [them] out [H7993] , and went [H3212] to the city [H5892] of the house [H1004] of Baal [H1168] .(the edge: Heb. the mouth)

10:26 And they brought forth [H3318] the images [H4676] out of the house [H1004] of Baal [H1168] , and burned [H8313] them.(images: Heb. statues)

10:27 And they brake down [H5422] the image [H4676] of Baal [H1168] , and brake down [H5422] the house [H1004] of Baal [H1168] , and made [H7760] it a draught house [H4163] [H4280] unto this day [H3117] .

10:28 Thus Jehu [H3058] destroyed [H8045] Baal [H1168] out of Israel [H3478] .

10:29 Howbeit [from] the sins [H2399] of Jeroboam [H3379] the son [H1121] of Nebat [H5028] , who made Israel [H3478] to sin [H2398] , Jehu [H3058] departed [H5493] not from after [H310] them, [to wit], the golden [H2091] calves [H5695] that [were] in Bethel [H1008] , and that [were] in Dan [H1835] .

10:30 And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto Jehu [H3058] , Because thou hast done well [H2895] in executing [H6213] [that which is] right [H3477] in mine eyes [H5869] , [and] hast done [H6213] unto the house [H1004] of Ahab [H256] according to all that [was] in mine heart [H3824] , thy children [H1121] of the fourth [H7243] [generation] shall sit [H3427] on the throne [H3678] of Israel [H3478] .

10:31 But Jehu [H3058] took no heed [H8104] to walk [H3212] in the law [H8451] of the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] with all his heart [H3824] : for he departed [H5493] not from the sins [H2403] of Jeroboam [H3379] , which made Israel [H3478] to sin [H2398] .(took: Heb. observed not)

10:32 In those days [H3117] the LORD [H3068] began [H2490] to cut [H7096] Israel [H3478] short [H7096] : and Hazael [H2371] smote [H5221] them in all the coasts [H1366] of Israel [H3478] ;(to cut: Heb. to cut off the ends)

10:33 From Jordan [H3383] eastward [H4217] [H8121] , all the land [H776] of Gilead [H1568] , the Gadites [H1425] , and the Reubenites [H7206] , and the Manassites [H4520] , from Aroer [H6177] , which [is] by the river [H5158] Arnon [H769] , even Gilead [H1568] and Bashan [H1316] .(eastward: Heb. toward the rising of the sun)(even: or, even to Gilead and Bashan)

10:34 Now the rest [H3499] of the acts [H1697] of Jehu [H3058] , and all that he did [H6213] , and all his might [H1369] , [are] they not written [H3789] in the book [H5612] of the chronicles [H1697] [H3117] of the kings [H4428] of Israel [H3478] ?

10:35 And Jehu [H3058] slept [H7901] with his fathers [H1] : and they buried [H6912] him in Samaria [H8111] . And Jehoahaz [H3059] his son [H1121] reigned [H4427] in his stead.

10:36 And the time [H3117] that Jehu [H3058] reigned [H4427] over Israel [H3478] in Samaria [H8111] [was] twenty [H6242] and eight [H8083] years [H8141] .(the time: Heb. the days were)
