He then got up and went into the house, and the prophet’s servant poured the oil on his head and said to him, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel says: ‘(A)I have anointed you king over the people of the Lord, over Israel. And you shall strike the house of Ahab your master, (B)so that I may avenge (C)the blood of My servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the Lord, (D)at the hand of Jezebel. For the entire house of Ahab shall perish, and (E)I will eliminate from Ahab (F)every male person (G)both [a]slave and free in Israel. (H)I will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and (I)like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah. 10 (J)The dogs will eat Jezebel in the territory of Jezreel, and no one will bury her.’” Then he opened the door and fled.
