Jehu, by his letters, causeth seventy of Ahab's children to be beheaded. He excuseth the fact by the prophecy of Elijah. At the shearing house he slayeth two and forty of Ahaziah's brethren. He taketh Jehonadab into his company. By subtilty he destroyeth all the worshippers of Baal. Jehu followeth Jeroboam's sins. Hazael oppresseth Israel. Jehoahaz succeedeth Jehu.
