Jehu son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him. "Why should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD?" he asked the king. "What you have done has brought the LORD's anger against you.
There is some good in you, however, for you have removed the Asherah poles throughout the land, and you have committed yourself to seeking God."
