June 2nd

As part of my plan to read the entire bible every four years, one chapter a day, this morning I read 2 Kings 9:

Elisha sent a young prophet to covertly anoint Jehu king over Israel. Jehu drove like a maniac and met king Joram, and challenging his and Ahaziah’s reign, shooting Joram with an arrow. Jehu chased Ahaziah too, injuring him but not killing him before he escaped to Megiddo and eventually died there. Then Jehu went to Jezreel where Jezebel confronted him about the killings from an upper window, but was thrown down by two or three eunuchs to her death, then most of her body was eaten by dogs, and unable to be buried properly, which fulfilled Elijah’s earlier prophecy about her.
