Ahab, son of Omri, took for a wife Jezebel, daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians and serve Baal and worship him.

2 Kings 9:30 – 35

Jehu was anointed as king of Israel by a prophet send by Elisha. This prophet was also instructed to take the cruse of oil and pour it on Jehu’s head and declare him king, and then to run for his live. The prophet instruction was to give the following orders to the new king.

“Strike down the house of Ahab, your master,  so that God may avenge the blood of all the servants of the Lord who have died at the hands of Jezebel.”

Now when Jehu, the new king of Israel, came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it, and she painted her eyes and beautified her head and looked out of an upper window.

Jehu entered at the gate of the city. Jezebel looked down from the balcony and asked Jehu, “Have you come in peace?

Now Jehu lifted his face to the window and asked, “Who is on my side?”

Two or three eunuchs looked out at him.

And Jehu said, “Throw her down…..and some of her blood splattered on the wall and on the horses, Then Jehu drove over her.

Jehu came in and ate and drank. Jehu said, “Seen now to this cursed woman and bury her, for she is a king’s daughter. They went to bury her, but they found nothing left of her except the skull, feet and palms of her hands.

 

2 Kings 9:37

The corpe of Jezebel shall be like dung upon the face of the field in the portion of Jezreel, so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel.
