Jehu Reigns in Israel

2 Kings 10

28 Thus Jehu destroyed Baal from Israel. 29 However Jehu did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who had made Israel sin, that is, from t the golden calves that were at Bethel and Dan. 30 And the LORD u said to Jehu, "Because you have done well in doing what is right in My sight, and have done to the house of Ahab all that was in My heart, v your sons shall sit on the throne of Israel to the fourth generation." 31 But Jehu 1 took no heed to walk in the law of the LORD God of Israel with all his heart; for he did not depart from w the sins of Jeroboam, who had made Israel sin.

32 In those days the LORD began to cut off parts of Israel; and x Hazael conquered them in all the territory of Israel 33 from the Jordan eastward: all the land of Gilead - Gad, Reuben, and Manasseh - from y Aroer, which is by the River Arnon, including z Gilead and Bashan. 34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehu, all that he did, and all his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? 35 So Jehu 2 rested with his fathers, and they buried him in Samaria. Then a Jehoahaz his son reigned in his place. 36 And the period that Jehu reigned over Israel in Samaria was twenty-eight years.
