Chapter Nine
2-Kings. Chapter 9.
Jehu Becomes King of Israel.
Elisha sends one of the prophets to annoint as King over Israel, Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi. Jehu was with the army at Ramoth Gilead. When the other army commanders saw what had happened they proclaimed Jehu King. Jehu advances on Joram (Yehoram) son of Ahab, King of Israel, and Ahaziah King of Judah who were in the city of Jezreel recovering from their recent defeat by Hazael king of Aram (Syria). An attitude of self-destruction had seemingly overtaken both the defeated monarchs who in effect delivered themselves into the hands of Jehu. A possible parallel with stalin after the German invasion of Russia in World War 2? Jehu shoots an arrow at Joram hitting him in the back and piercing his heart. Ahaziah of Judah is pursued and also shot to death. Jehu enters the city of Jezreel. Jezebel taunts him so Jehu orders her thrown out the window. After eating and drinking Jehu orders that the body of Jezebel be attended to but only the head and feet remained. The dogs had eaten the rest.

Chapter Ten.
2-Kings. Chapter 10.
Jehu Rules Over Israel.
2 Kings 10 Summarized Jehu forced the elders of Samaria and rulers of Jezreel to actively participate in the execution of all the male descendants of Ahab. Jehu also captured and killed many of the family of Ahaziah King of Judah who was related through his mother to Ahab and his son Joram. The mother of Ahaziah was the daughter of Jezebel the queen mother of Israel and biological mother of Joram whom Jehu had killed. Jehy meets by chance with Jehonadab the son of Rechab. Jehonadab joins Jehu in his campaign against the worship of Baal. Jehonadab became the ancestor of the Rechabites who are spoken of in the Book of Jeremiah. Later the Rechabites were to be associated with the Lost Ten Tribes and the British Isles. In Samaria Jehu gathers together all the servants of Baal. Jehu poses as a worshipper of Baaal. A Convocation of Baal-Woshippers is summoned. The Temple of Baal is filled to the brim. The Priest of Baal makes a sacrifice then Jehu orders his men to kill them all. All the worshippers of Baaal were put to death. The Tempe of Baal was burnt and its stones smashed. Jehu was promised that for four generations his House would rule over Israel. Jehu maintained the golden calves in Dan and Beth-el for fear of the people repenting and returning to reunite with Judah and be ruled over by the House of David. A parallel situation exists today. Jehu himself was eventually led astray and worshipped idols. Hazael King of Aram attacked the Tribes east of the Jordan. Many Israelites even then fled or were exiled. Opponents of Jewish-Israelite settlement in Judah and Samaria will face the wrath of the Almighty!

Chapter Eleven.
2-Kings. Chapter 11.
Athaliah and Jehoash.
Ahaziah King of Judah had been killed by Jehu King of Israel. Athaliah the daughter of Jezebel and mother of Ahaziah seized all the heirs she could get hold of and killed them seizing power herself. Jehosheba a sister of Ahaziah by another mother and wife of the Officiating Priest hid the infant Joash son of Ahaziah in the Temple Precints. Six years later when Joash was seven years old the officiating Priest, Jehoiada, made a pact with the Captains of the Royal Guards. Parallels between Israelite and Anglo-Saxon division into tens and hundreds. The Royal Guards surrounded the Temple Mount. Together with the Priests and Levites they declared Joash king, and killed Athaliah. They then broke down the pagan altars and images and killed Mattan the priest of Baal. Joash was placed on the throne in the Royal Palace and declared King of Judah.
