169 - Jehu and Joash.

Kathleen's thoughts

2 Kings 10: 1-11 Judgement on Ahab. Ahab had 70 sons and Jehu killed all who remained of the house of Ahab in Jezreel. all his great men, close friends and priests - leaving him no survivors.

2 Kings 10: 15-17 Jehonadab is spared.

2 Kings 10: 18-27 Jehu destroys Baal worship. He gathers all the Baal priests to bring sacrifices and he kills all their priests as well as the building and pillars. 10: 30 The Lord said to Jehu. Because you have done well in carrying out what is right in My sight and have done to the house of Ahab all that was in My heart. four generations of your sons will sit on the throne of Israel.

2 Kings 11: 4-12 2 Chronicles 23: 1-11 Joash becomes king. 11 They brought out the king's son, put the crown on him, gave him the testimony, and made him King. Jehoiada and his sons anointed him and cried, "long live the king!:

2 Kings 10: 28-33 Jehu's backsliding. Jehus eliminated Baal worship from Israel, but he did not turn away from the sins that Jeroboam son of Nebat had caused Israel to commit - worshiping the golden calves that were in Bethel and Dan.

2 Kings 11: 13-15 2 Chronicles 23p; 12-15 Athaliah executed

2 Chronicles 24: 1-2 2 Kings 11; 21, 12: 1-3 Joash's good life. he was seven years old when he became king. His mothers name was Zibiah who was from Beershebs. Throughout the time Jehoiada the priest instructed him, Joash did what was right in the Lord's sight. Yet the high places were not taken away; the people continued sacrificing and burning incense on the high places.
