And therestood a watchman on the tower in Jezreel, and he spied the company of Jehu as he came, and said, I see a company. And Joramsaid, Take an horseman, and send to meetthem, and let him say, Is it peace?
So therewent one on horseback to meet him, and said, Thussaith the king, Is it peace? And Jehusaid, Whathastthou to do withpeace? turntheebehind me. And the watchmantold, saying, The messengercame to them, but he cometh not again.
And Joramsaid, Makeready. And his chariot was madeready. And Joramking of Israel and Ahaziahking of Judahwent out, each in his chariot, and theywent out againstJehu, and met him in the portion of Naboth the Jezreelite.
