*And Elisha the prophet called one of athe children of the prophets, and said unto him, bGird up thy loins, and take this cbox of oil in thine hand, and go to dRamoth-gilead: And when thou comest thither, look out there eJehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi, and go in, and make him arise up from among fhis brethren, and carry him to an inner chamber; Then take the cbox of oil, and pour it on his head, and say, Thus saith the Lord, I have anointed thee king over Israel. Then open the door, and flee, and tarry not. So the young man, even the young man athe prophet, went to Ramoth-gilead. And when he came, behold, the captains of the host were sitting; and he said, I have an errand to thee, O captain. And Jehu said, Unto which of all us? And he said, To thee, O captain. 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. And thou shalt smite the house of Ahab thy master, that I may avenge the blood of my servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the Lord, gat the hand of Jezebel. For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and hI will cut off from Ahab ihim that pisseth against the wall, and khim that is shut up and left in Israel: And I will make the house of Ahab like the house of lJeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of mBaasha the son of Ahijah: 10 nAnd the dogs shall eat Jezebel in the portion of oJezreel, and there shall be none to bury her. And he opened the door, and fled.
