\\INTRODUCTION TO 2 KINGS 9\\

In this chapter we are told that one of the sons of the prophets was
sent by Elisha to anoint Jehu king of Israel, and to order him to
smite and destroy the whole house of Ahab, \\#2Ki 9:1-10\\, which
being done unto him, and the order received by Jehu, he acquainted
his captains with it, \\#2Ki 9:11-15\\, who set out with him
immediately to Jezreel, \\#2Ki 9:16-21\\, where he slew Joram
king of Israel, \\#2Ki 9:22-26\\, and Ahaziah king of Judah,
\\#2Ki 9:27-29\\, and Jezebel, the widow of Ahab, and mother of Joram,
\\#2Ki 9:30-37\\.
