\\INTRODUCTION TO 2 KINGS 10\\

This chapter gives a further account of the destruction of the house
of Ahab by Jehu, or his orders, even of all his sons and relations,
\\#2Ki 10:1-11\\, and also of the brethren of Ahaziah king of Judah,
\\#2Ki 10:12-14\\, of his taking up Jehonadab the son of Rechab into
his chariot, to be a witness of his zeal for the Lord, \\#2Ki 10:15-17\\,
and of his gathering together the prophets, priests, and worshippers
of Baal, and slaying them, \\#2Ki 10:18-25\\ and of his extirpation of
the idolatry of Baal, \\#2Ki 10:26-28\\, nevertheless he continued the
worship of the calves, \\#2Ki 10:29-31\\ wherefore Israel was distressed
by the king of Syria, \\#2Ki 10:32,33\\ and the chapter is concluded
with the reign and death of Jehu, \\#2Ki 10:34,35\\.
