Jehu had been commissioned to destroy the house of Ahab (2 Kings 9:7-9), and he carried it out with zeal. After slaying all those in Jezreel, he did the same in Samaria the capital (2 Kings 10:17) and even Ahab's more distant relatives from Judah (2 Kings 10:13,14). Jehu finally destroyed all the leaders of Baal worship in Israel as well (2 Kings 10:20-28). Thus was the prophetic word of both Elijah and Elisha fulfilled (1 Kings 21:21-24; 2 Kings 9:8,9).
