And he arose, and went into the house; and he poured the oil on his head, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I have anointed thee king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel. 1 Kgs. 19.16
But king Joram was returned to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds which the Syrians had given him, when he fought with Haz'a-el king of Syria.) And Jehu said, If it be your minds, then let none go forth nor escape out of the city to go to tell it in Jezreel.
¶ And there stood a watchman on the tower in Jezreel, and he spied the company of Jehu as he came, and said, I see a company. And Joram said, Take a horseman, and send to meet them, and let him say, Is it peace?
So there went one on horseback to meet him, and said, Thus saith the king, Is it peace? And Jehu said, What hast thou to do with peace? turn thee behind me. And the watchman told, saying, The messenger came to them, but he cometh not again.
¶ And Joram said, Make ready. And his chariot was made ready. And Joram king of Israel and Ahazi'ah king of Judah went out, each in his chariot, and they went out against Jehu, and met him in the portion of Naboth the Jez'reelite.
Then said Jehu to Bidkar his captain, Take up, and cast him in the portion of the field of Naboth the Jez'reelite: for remember how that, when I and thou rode together after Ahab his father, the LORD laid this burden upon him;

Wherefore they came again, and told him. And he said, This is the word of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Eli'jah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jez'ebel: 1 Kgs. 21.23
