So he sent out a second man on horseback, who, on coming to him, said, “The king asks if you are coming in peace.” Yehu answered, “Peace? What business is that of yours? Turn around, and get behind me!”
Then Joram sent out a second horseman. This rider came to Jehu’s group and said, “This is what the king says: ‘·Is all in order [Do you come in peace; L Is it peace]?’” Jehu answered, “·Why bother yourself with order [What is peace to you]? ·Come along [Fall in] behind me.”
So Joram sent out a second horseman. This rider came to Jehu’s group and said, “This is what the king says: ‘Do you bring good news?’” Jehu answered, “That’s none of your business! Come along behind me.”
So the king sent out a second rider. He rode up to them and demanded in the name of the king to know whether their intentions were friendly or not. Jehu answered, “What do you know about friendliness? Get behind me!”
The king then sent a second horseman. When he reached them he said, “The king wants to know if there’s anything wrong.” Jehu said, “What’s it to you whether things are right or wrong? Fall in behind me.”
Also the king sent the second chariot of horses, and he came to them, and said, The king saith these things, Whether peace is with you? (And the king sent a second chariot of horses, and the man came to them, and said, The king saith these things, Is everything at peace with you?) And Jehu said, What to thee and to peace? Pass thou forth, and follow me.
