And Joram said, make ready
The chariot, put to the horses; bind them, as the word signifies, to the chariot: and his chariot was made ready;
by his servants immediately: and Joram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah went out, each in
not both in the same chariot, but each in his own, for the sake of greater magnificence: and they went out against Jehu;
not in an hostile manner, for they had no notion of him as an enemy; though it is much they had no suspicion of him by his detaining the messengers; but Joram perhaps thought he was desirous of delivering his message himself; and in honour to him, and also being eager to know what it was, went out to meet him: and met him in the portion of Naboth the Jezreelite;
which had been his, and where, or near it, he was stoned, and his blood shed; a very inauspicious place to meet him in.
