Kings 10

  1. Trace the course of Jehu’s rise to power. Looking back to chapter 9, where was he first anointed, and acclaimed as king?
    Whither did he then go, striking down in swift succession Jehoram, Ahaziah and Jezebel?
    Whom did he further slay, as recorded in 10:1-4, and by what means?
  2. From this account of his reign, what do you learn about Jehu’s aim, his character, and his attitude of God?

Notes. Verses 9, 10. Jehu quietens the people of Samaria, by reminding them that all that was happening was but the fulfillment of God’s word through Elijah. See 1 Kgs. 21:21, 23, 24.
