So Jehu slew all that remained of the house of Ahab in Jezreel, and all his great men, and his kinsfolks, and his priests, until he left him none remaining.
And he arose and departed, and came to Samaria. And
as he was
at the shearing house in the way,
Jehu met with the brethren of Ahaziah king of Judah, and said, Who are
ye? And they answered, We are
the brethren of Ahaziah; and we go down to salute the children of the king and the children of the queen.
And he said, Take them alive. And they took them alive, and slew them at the pit of the shearing house, even
two and forty men; neither left he any of them.
And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming
to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is
with thy heart? And Jehonadab answered, It is. If it be, give me
thine hand. And he gave him his hand; and he took him up to him into the chariot.
And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the LORD. So they made him ride in his chariot.
