Jehu Executes Jezebel
When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it. And k she painted her eyes and adorned her head and looked out of the window.
And as Jehu entered the gate, she said, l "Is it peace, you Zimri, murderer of your master?"
And he lifted up his face to the window and said, "Who is on my side? Who?" Two or three eunuchs looked out at him.
He said, "Throw her down." So they threw her down. And some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses, and they trampled on her.
Then he went in and ate and drank. And he said, "See now to this cursed woman and bury her, m for she is a king's daughter."
But when they went to bury her, they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands.
When they came back and told him, he said, "This is the word of the Lord, which he spoke by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, n 'In the territory of Jezreel the dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel,
and the corpse of Jezebel shall be o as dung on the face of the field in the territory of Jezreel, so that no one can say, This is Jezebel.'"

And you, O desolate one, what do you mean that you dress in scarlet, that you adorn yourself with ornaments of gold, that you enlarge your eyes with paint? In vain you beautify yourself. Your lovers despise you; they seek your life.
They even sent for men to come from afar, to whom a messenger was sent; and behold, they came. For them you bathed yourself, painted your eyes, and adorned yourself with ornaments.
1 Kings 16:9 - 20
But his servant Zimri, commander of half his chariots, conspired against him. When he was at Tirzah, drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza, who was over the household in Tirzah.
1 Kings 16:31
And as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, he took for his wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and went and served Baal and worshiped him.
1 Kings 21:23
And of Jezebel the Lord also said, 'The dogs shall eat Jezebel within the walls of Jezreel.
Who were destroyed at En-dor, who became dung for the ground.
And they shall be spread before the sun and the moon and all the host of heaven, which they have loved and served, which they have gone after, and which they have sought and worshiped. And they shall not be gathered or buried. They shall be as dung on the surface of the ground.
Speak, "Thus declares the Lord : 'The dead bodies of men shall fall like dung upon the open field, like sheaves after the reaper, and none shall gather them.'
They shall die of deadly diseases. They shall not be lamented, nor shall they be buried. They shall be as dung on the surface of the ground. They shall perish by the sword and by famine, and their dead bodies shall be food for the birds of the air and for the beasts of the earth.
And those pierced by the Lord on that day shall extend from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried; they shall be dung on the surface of the ground.
