The Zeal of Jehu
2nd Kings 10:11-28
Jehu killed all those left to the house of Ahab in Jezreel, and his great men, and his friends, and his priests, until he did not leave a survivor to him. And he rose up and came in, and went to Samaria. He was at the shepherds' shearing house in the way.
Jehu met the brothers of Ahaziah the king of Judah, and said, Who are you? And they said, We are brothers of Ahaziah, and we are going down to ask the welfare of the sons of the king, and the sons of the queen.
And he said, Capture them alive! And they captured them alive, and killed them at the pit of the shearing house, forty men. And he did not leave a man of them.
And he left there and found Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him, and he blessed him. And he said to him, Is your heart right, as my heart is with your heart? And Jehonadab said, It is. If it is, give your hand. And he gave his hand, and he made him come up to him into the chariot.
And he said, Come with me and see my zeal for YAHWEH. And they made him ride in the chariot. And he came to Samaria and killed all those left of Ahab in Samaria, until he had destroyed him, according to the Word of YAHWEH that He spoke to Elijah.
Jehu gathered all the people and said to them, Ahab served Baal a little; Jehu shall serve him much.
And now call to me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants, and all his priests. Do not let a man be lacking, for I shall have a great sacrifice to Baal. Anyone who is lacking, he shall not live. And Jehu was acting with cunning in order to destroy the servants of Baal.
Jehu said, consecrate an assembly for Baal. And they proclaimed it.
Jehu sent to all Israel, and all the servants of Baal came in. And there was not a man left who did not come in. And they came into the house of Baal, and the house of Baal was full from mouth to mouth.
And he said to the one over the wardrobe, Bring out garments to all the servants of Baal. And he brought out the garments to them.
Jehu and Jehonadab the son of Rechab went in to the house of Baal and said to the servants of Baal, Search and see that there are none of the servants of YAHWEH here with you; but only the servants of Baal.
And they came in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings. And Jehu had set for himself eighty men on the outside. And he said, The man who lets any of the men escape whom I am bringing into your hands, his life for the life of him.
And it happened, when he finished offering the burnt offering, Jehu said to the runners and the third officers, Go in, strike them. Do not let any man come out. And they struck them by the edge of the sword. And the runners and the third officers threw them out. And they went into the city to the house of Baal, and brought out the pillars of the house of Baal and burned them.
And they broke down the pillar of Baal, and broke down the house of Baal, and made it an outhouse to this day. Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.
The Son who Returned
A certain man had two sons. And his younger son said to him, My father, give to me the portion that is coming to me from your estate. And he divided to them his possessions.
And not many days after, gathering up all things, the younger son went away to a distant country. And there he wasted his property, living lavishly. But having spent all his things, a severe famine came throughout that country, and he began to be in need. And going, he was joined to one of the citizens of that country.
And he sent him into his fields to feed pigs. And he longed to fill his stomach from the husks which the pigs ate, but no one gave to him.
But coming to himself he said, "How many servants of my father have plenty of bread, and I am perishing with famine. Rising up, I will go to my father, and I will say to him, Father, I sinned against Heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me as one of your hired servants".
And rising up, he came to his father. But he yet being far away, his father saw him and was moved with compassion. And running, he fell on his neck and kissed him.
And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against Heaven and before you, and no longer am I worthy to be called your son.
But the father said to his slaves, Bring out the best robe and clothe him, and give a ring for his hand and sandals for his feet. And bring the fattened calf, slaughter and let us eat and be merry; for this son of mine was dead, and lives again, and was lost, yet was found.
And they began to be merry.
But the older son was in a field. And having come, as he drew near to the house, he heard the sound of singing of many. And having called one of the boys, he inquired what this may be. And he said to him, Your brother came, and your father killed the fattened calf, because he received him back in health. But he was angry and did not desire to go in. Then coming out, his father begged him.
But answering, he said to the father, Behold, so many years I have served you, and I have never transgressed your commandments. And you never gave a goat to me, so that I might be merry with my friends. But when this son of yours came, the one devouring your living with harlots, you killed the fattened calf for him.
But he said to him, My son, you are with me at all times, and everything that is mine is yours. But to be merry and to rejoice was right, for this brother of yours was dead, and lives again; and being lost, also he was found.
