Bible: 2 Kings 9:6-10

9:6 So Jehu 1  got up and went inside. Then the prophet 2  poured the olive oil on his head and said to him, “This is what the Lord God of Israel says, ‘I have designated you as king over the Lord’s people Israel. 9:7 You will destroy the family of your master Ahab. 3  I will get revenge against Jezebel for the shed blood of my servants the prophets and for the shed blood of all the Lord’s servants. 4  9:8 Ahab’s entire family will die. I 5  will cut off every last male belonging to Ahab in Israel, including even the weak and incapacitated. 6  9:9 I will make Ahab’s dynasty 7  like those of Jeroboam son of Nebat and Baasha son of Ahijah. 9:10 Dogs will devour Jezebel on the plot of ground in Jezreel; she will not be buried.’” 8  Then he opened the door and ran away.
