Chapter 10

We have in this chapter, I. A further account of Jehu’s execution of his commission. He cut off, 1. All Ahab’s sons, 2 Kgs. 10:1-10. 2. All Ahab’s kindred, 2 Kgs. 10:11-14, 17. 3. Ahab’s idolatry: his zeal against this he took Jonadab to be witness to (2 Kgs. 10:15, 16), summoned all the worshippers of Baal to attend (2 Kgs. 10:18-23) and slew them all (2 Kgs. 10:24, 25), and then abolished that idolatry, 2 Kgs. 10:26-28. II. A short account of the administration of his government. 1. The old idolatry of Israel, the worship of the calves, was retained, 2 Kgs. 10:29-31. 2. This brought God’s judgments upon them by Hazael, with which his reign concludes, 2 Kgs. 10:32-36.
