Bible: 2 Kings 9:17-20

9:17 Now the watchman was standing on the tower in Jezreel and saw Jehu’s troops approaching. 1  He said, “I see troops!” 2  Jehoram ordered, 3 Send a rider out to meet them and have him ask, ‘Is everything all right?’ 4  9:18 So the horseman 5  went to meet him and said, “This is what the king says, ‘Is everything all right?’” 6  Jehu replied, “None of your business! 7  Follow me.” The watchman reported, “The messenger reached them, but hasn’t started back.” 9:19 So he sent a second horseman out to them 8  and he said, “This is what the king says, ‘Is everything all right?’” 9  Jehu replied, “None of your business! Follow me.” 9:20 The watchman reported, “He reached them, but hasn’t started back. The one who drives the lead chariot drives like Jehu son of Nimshi; 10  he drives recklessly.”
