`The dogs shall eat Jezebel in the territory of Jezreel, and none shall bury her."' Then he opened the door and fled. (2 Kings 9:10)

When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it, and she painted her eyes and adorned her head and looked out the window. (2 Kings 9:30)

As Jehu entered the gate, she said, "Is it well, Zimri, your master's murderer?" (2 Kings 9:31)

Then he lifted up his face to the window and said, "Who is on my side? Who?" And two or three officials looked down at him. (2 Kings 9:32)

He said, "Throw her down." So they threw her down, and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall and on the horses, and he trampled her under foot. (2 Kings 9:33)

When he came in, he ate and drank; and he said, "See now to this cursed woman and bury her, for she is a king's daughter." (2 Kings 9:34)

They went to bury her, but they found nothing more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands. (2 Kings 9:35)

Therefore they returned and told him. And he said, "This is the word of the LORD, which He spoke by His servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, `In the property of Jezreel the dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel; (2 Kings 9:36)

and the corpse of Jezebel will be as dung on the face of the field in the property of Jezreel, so they cannot say, "This is Jezebel.""' (2 Kings 9:37)
