one Elisha the prophet called one of the sons of the prophets and said to him: you will gird your loins, and take this vessel with oil in your hand, and go to Ramoth of Gilead.
2 Having come there, look for Jehu, the son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Namessiev, and come and lead him out from among your brothers, and bring him into the inner room;
3 and take a jar of oil, and pour it on his head, and say: 'Thus saith the Lord: I will anoint you king over Israel.' Then open the door, and run, and do not wait.
4 And the lad, the servant of the prophet, went to Ramoth of Gilead,
5 and he came, and behold the military leaders were sitting. And he said: I have a word to you, commander. And Jehu said, To which of us all? And he said: To you, commander.
6 And he arose, and entered the house. And the [lad] poured oil on his head, and said to him: Thus says the Lord God of Israel: `` I will anoint you king over the people of the Lord, over Israel,
7 and you will destroy the house of Ahab thy master, that I may avenge the blood of the servants of My prophets and the blood of all the servants of the Lord [fallen] from the hand of Jezebel;
eight and the whole house of Ahab will perish, and I will destroy with Ahab who urinates against the wall, and who is a prisoner and remains in Israel,
nine And I will make the house of Ahab as the house of Jeroboam the son of Navatov, and as the house of Baasha the son of Ahijin.
ten Jezebel will be eaten by dogs on the field of Jezreel, and no one will bury her. ” And he opened the door, and fled.

eleven And Jehu went out to the servants of his master, and they said to him, Is it in peace? Why did this frantic come to you? And he said to them: you know this man and what he says.
12 And they said untruth, tell us. And he said: this and that he said unto me, saying: `Thus saith the Lord: I will anoint you king over Israel. '
thirteen And they hastened, and each one took his own clothes, and laid him on the very steps, and blew the trumpet, and said: Jehu reigned!
fourteen And Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Namibos rebelled against Joram; Joram was with all the Israelites in Ramoth of Gilead on guard against Hazael king of Syria.
fifteen However, King Joram himself returned to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds that the Syrians caused him when he fought with Hazael king of Syria. And Jehu said, If you agree, then let no one leave the city to go to give the news in Jezreel.

sixteen And Jehu sat on a horse, and rode to Jezreel, where Joram lay, and where Ahaziah king of Judah came to visit Joram.
17 A watchman stood on the tower in Jezreel, and he saw the horde of Jehu, as it went, and said: I see the horde. And Joram said: Take the horseman, and go to meet them, and let him say: is it in peace?
18 And the horseman rode out on horseback to meet him, and said: Thus says the king: Is it in peace? And Jehu said, What do you care about the world? Follow me And the watchman reported, and said: I arrived at them, but did not return.
19 And they sent another horseman, and he came to them, and said: Thus says the king: Is it in peace? And Jehu said, What do you care about the world? Follow me
twenty And the watchman reported, saying: he reached them, and he doesn’t return, but the walk was like Jehu, the son of Namessiev, because he was moving fast.
21 And Joram said, Harness. And they harnessed his chariot. And Joram the king of Israel came up, and Ahaziah the king of Judah, each in his chariot. And they came forward to meet Jehu, and met him in the field of Naboth the Jezreelite.
22 And when Joram saw Jehu, he said: Is Jehu in peace? And he said: What peace is in the fornication of Jezebel thy mother, and in her many sorceries?
23 And Joram turned his hands, and fled, and said to Ahaziah: treason, Ahaziah!
24 And Jehu pulled the bow with his hand, and struck Joram between his shoulders, and an arrow passed through his heart, and he fell on his chariot.
25 And Jehu said to Bidekar his dignitary, take him, throw him to the site of the field of Naboth the Jezreelite, for remember how you and I rode together behind Ahab his father, and how the Lord spoke such a prophecy to him:
26 verily, the blood of Naboth and the blood of his sons I saw yesterday, saith the Lord, and I will avenge you in this field. So, take him to the field, according to the word of the Lord.
27 Ahaziah, king of Judea, having seen these things, ran along the road to the house in the garden. And Jehu chased after him, and said, And beat him in a chariot. [This] [was] on the Gur hill that was under Ivleam. And he fled to Megiddon, and died there.
28 And his servants took him to Jerusalem, and buried him in his tomb, with his fathers, in the city of David.
29th In the eleventh year of Joram, the son of Ahab, Ahaziah reigned in Judah.

thirty And Jehu arrived in Jezreel. Jezebel, having received the news, reddened her face and adorned her head, and looked out the window.
31 When Jehu entered the gate, she said: Is peace to Zambria, the murderer of her sovereign?
32 And he lifted up his face to the window and said: who is with me, who? And two, three eunuchs peered out to him.
33 And he said: Throw it away. And threw it away. And her blood sprinkled on the wall and on the horses, and trampled her.
34 And Jehu came, and ate, and drank, and said, Search this damned woman and bury her, for she is the king's daughter.
35 And they went to bury her, and found nothing from her but the skull, and the legs, and hands.
36 And they returned, and reported to him. And he said: such was the word of the Lord, which He spoke through His servant Elijah the Thessian, saying: in the field of Jezreel the dogs will eat the body of Jezebel,
37 and the body of Jezebel in Jezreel’s lot will be like manure on a field, so no one will say: this is Jezebel.
