Th 090319 pm 2 King 9-10

2 Kings 9
9.31 Wicked as she was, you have to appreciate her cutting sarcasm and whit.
9. 34 After what Jehu said in verse 22, it is curious that he would want to see to her burial. I guess it was a "professional courtesy" or something.

2 Kings 10
10.10 "Know now that nothing shall fall to the earth of the Word of the Lord which the Lord spoke concerning the house of Ahab..." I like the expression about words falling to the ground. And, it is impressive how confident Jehu was in bringing about the violent end God had prophesied for Ahab's house.
10.15 I love "Jehonadab the son of Rechab."
10.29 This is the saddest verse in the chapter. (Well, this one and 31 combined.) It's not enough to have a great start. Lord, help me to finish well.
