Jehu ordered Bidkar, his chariot officer, "Pick up Joram's body, and throw it into the field of Naboth the Jezreelite. Remember when you and I rode together with Joram's father Ahab. The Lord made this prophecy against him:
'Yesterday I saw the blood of Naboth and his sons, says the Lord, so I will punish Ahab in his field, says the Lord.' Take Joram's body and throw it into the field, as the Lord has said."
When Ahaziah king of Judah saw this, he ran away toward Beth Haggan. Jehu chased him, saying, "Shoot Ahaziah, too!" Ahaziah was wounded in his chariot on the way up to Gur near Ibleam. He got as far as Megiddo but died there.
Ahaziah's servants carried his body in a chariot to Jerusalem and buried him with his ancestors in his tomb in Jerusalem.
(Ahaziah had become king over Judah in the eleventh year Joram son of Ahab was king.)
When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard about it. She put on her eye makeup and fixed her hair. Then she looked out the window.
When Jehu entered the city gate, Jezebel said, "Have you come in peace, you Zimri, you who killed your master?"
Jehu looked up at the window and said, "Who is on my side? Who?" Two or three servants looked out the window at Jehu.
He said to them, "Throw her down." So they threw Jezebel down, and the horses ran over her. Some of her blood splashed on the wall and on the horses.
Jehu went into the house and ate and drank. Then he said, "Now see about this cursed woman. Bury her, because she is a king's daughter."
The men went to bury Jezebel, but they could not find her. They found only her skull, feet, and the palms of her hands.
When they came back and told Jehu, he said, "The Lord said this through his servant Elijah the Tishbite: 'The dogs will eat Jezebel at Jezreel.
Her body will be like manure on the field in the land at Jezreel. No one will be able to say that this is Jezebel.'"
