Chapter CONTEXT and Commneraty from MHCC: Hazael and Jehu were the men that were designed to be the instruments of God’s justice in punishing and destroying the house of Ahab. Elijah was told to appoint them to this service; but, upon Ahab’s humiliation, a reprieve was granted, and so it was left to Elisha to appoint them. Hazael’s elevation to the throne of Syria we read of in the foregoing chapter; and we must now attend Jehu to the throne of Israel; for him that escapeth the sword of Hazael, as Joram and Ahaziah did, Jehu must slay, of which this chapter gives us an account. I. A commission is sent to Jehu by the hand of one of the prophets, to take upon him the government, and destroy the house of Ahab (v. 1-10). II. Here is his speedy execution of this commission. 1. He communicates it to his captains (v. 11-15). 2. He marches directly to Jezreel (v. 16-20), and there dispatches (1.) Joram king of Israel (v. 21-26). (2.) Ahaziah king of Judah (v. 27-29). (3.) Jezebel (v. 30-37).

Holy Spirit, help us grasp mercy is given to grant us time to repent, not as condoning our wayward ways of destruction and death, remembering that death is not always physical. Jezebel, probably the most evil woman to have everc lived ended in the street with a head so full of evil plans and corruption, feet so dirty from the paths of evil she had walked and hands so bloody from the destruction and death they had worked that even the blood thirsty dogs would not eat them. CLEANSE US LORD! PURIFY OUR THOUGHTS, OUR PATHS AND OUR DEEDS. May we be found innocent of taking advantage of anyone in anyway just to make us happy or fill our greed!
