2 Kings 10
Jehu by his letters causeth Ahab's seventy sons to be slain in Samaria. He excuseth the fact by the prophecy of Elijah, and destroyeth all Ahab's kindred and friends in Jezreel. In his way to Samaria he slayeth two and forty of Ahaziah's brethren. He taketh Jehonadab in the chariot with him, and destroyeth all that remained unto Ahab in Samaria. By subtilty he slayeth at once all Baal's worshippers, and breaketh down his images and house. Jehu followeth the sins of Jeroboam, but for having executed God's judgments on Ahab's house, is promised the continuance of the kingdom in his family to the fourth generation. Hazael smiteth Israel. Jehu dieth; his son Jehoahaz succeedeth him.
