Jezebel’s Violent Death

And when Jehu king of Israel had come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she put paint on her eyes and adorned her head, and looked through a window. Then, as Jehu entered at the gate she said, “Is it peace Zimri, murderer of your master?”

And Jehu looked up at the window, and said,

“Who is on my side? Who?”

And two or three eunuchs looked out at him. Then Jehu commanded,

“Throw her down!”

So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses; and he trampled her underfoot.

And when Jehu had gone in, he ate and drank. Then he said, “Go now, see to this accursed woman, and bury her, for she was a king’s daughter.”

So they went to bury her, but they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hand. Therefore they came back and told him.

And Jehu said, “This is the word of the Lord, which HE spoke by his servant Elijah the Tishbite saying, ‘On the plot of the ground at Jezreel dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel; And the corpse of Jezebel shall be as refuse on the surface of the field, in the plot at Jezreel, so that they shall not say, “Here lies Jezebel.” ‘ “—2Kings 9:30-37

      Thanks for the visit. God bless those who take time to know the Lord Father and God of our Lord Jesus. How loving He is, yet our sins separate us from His loving mercy.
