2 Kings 9:35 Meaning and Commentary

2 Kings 9:35

And they went to bury her
The servants of Jehu, according to his orders and instructions;

but they found no more of her than the scull, and the feet, and the
palms of her hands;
the flesh, and even all the rest of her bones, being devoured by dogs, so that there was scarce anything of her to be buried, as in ( 2 Kings 9:10 ) , something similar to this happened to Ascletarion, a mathematician, as related by Suetonius F15.
