When Ahaziah king of Judah saw what had happened, he fled up the road to Beth Haggan.a Jehu chased him, shouting, "Kill him too!" They wounded him in his chariot on the way up to Gur near Ibleam,1 but he escaped to Megiddo2 and died there.
His servants took him by chariot3 to Jerusalem and buried him with his fathers in his tomb in the City of David.
(In the eleventh4 year of Joram son of Ahab, Ahaziah had become king of Judah.)
Then Jehu went to Jezreel. When Jezebel heard about it, she painted5 her eyes, arranged her hair and looked out of a window.
As Jehu entered the gate, she asked, "Have you come in peace, Zimri,6 you murderer of your master?"b32
He looked up at the window and called out, "Who is on my side? Who?" Two or three eunuchs looked down at him.
"Throw her down!" Jehu said. So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered the wall and the horses as they trampled her underfoot.734
Jehu went in and ate and drank. "Take care of that cursed woman," he said, "and bury her, for she was a king's daughter."835
But when they went out to bury her, they found nothing except her skull, her feet and her hands.
