"Hitch up my chariot," Joram ordered. And when it was hitched up, Joram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah rode out, each in his own chariot, to meet Jehu. They met him at the plot of ground that had belonged to Naboth1 the Jezreelite.
When Joram saw Jehu he asked, "Have you come in peace, Jehu?" "How can there be peace," Jehu replied, "as long as all the idolatry and witchcraft of your mother Jezebel2 abound?"
Joram turned about and fled, calling out to Ahaziah, "Treachery,3 Ahaziah!"
Then Jehu drew his bow4 and shot Joram between the shoulders. The arrow pierced his heart and he slumped down in his chariot.
Jehu said to Bidkar, his chariot officer, "Pick him up and throw him on the field that belonged to Naboth the Jezreelite. Remember how you and I were riding together in chariots behind Ahab his father when the LORD made this prophecy5 about him:
'Yesterday I saw the blood of Naboth6 and the blood of his sons, declares the LORD, and I will surely make you pay for it on this plot of ground, declares the LORD.'a Now then, pick him up and throw him on that plot, in accordance with the word of the LORD."7
