NIV 3 Then take the flask and pour the oil on his head and declare, ‘This is what the LORD says: I anoint you king over Israel.’ Then open the door and run; don’t delay!” ESV 4 So the young man, the servant of the prophet, went to Ramoth-gilead.

And the young man poured the oil on his head, saying to him, "Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, I anoint you king over the people of the LORD, over Israel. NIV 6 Jehu got up and went into the house. Then the prophet poured the oil on Jehu’s head and declared, “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘I anoint you king over the LORD’s people Israel.

ESV 8 For the whole house of Ahab shall perish, and I will cut off from Ahab every male, bond or free, in Israel. NIV 8 The whole house of Ahab will perish.
