2 Kings 9:26 Meaning and Commentary

2 Kings 9:26

Surely I have seen yesterday the blood of Naboth
These are the words of the Lord to Elijah the day after Naboth was put to death:

and the blood of his sons, said the Lord;
who were put to death with him, that there might be no heirs to the estate:

and I will requite thee in this place:
take vengeance here, as he now did on his son:

now therefore take [and] cast him into the plat [of ground], according
to the word of the Lord;
whereby it would be fulfilled, see ( 1 Kings 21:19 ) , more is here recited than there, which Jehu well remembered.

25 Then said Jehu to Bidkar his captain, Take up, and cast him in the portion of the field of Naboth the Jezreelite: for remember how that, when I and thou rode together after Ahab his father, the LORD laid this burden upon him;
26 Surely I have seen yesterday the blood of Naboth, and the blood of his sons, saith the LORD; and I will requite thee in this plat, saith the LORD. Now therefore take and cast him into the plat of ground, according to the word of the LORD.
27 But when Ahaziah the king of Judah saw this, he fled by the way of the garden house. And Jehu followed after him, and said, Smite him also in the chariot. And they did so at the going up to Gur, which is by Ibleam. And he fled to Megiddo, and died there.
28 And his servants carried him in a chariot to Jerusalem, and buried him in his sepulchre with his fathers in the city of David.
