Despite Jehu's apparent zeal to carry out God's commands against Ahab and Baal worship, it was more in self-interest than out of love for God. It is noteworthy that Shalmaneser III, a prominent king of Assyria, mentioned Jehu in his "Black Obelisk." This four-sided black limestone object contains a number of bas-relief panels, one of which depicts Jehu, the son of Omri, paying tribute to the Assyrian emperor. The obelisk is now in the British Museum.
