* he sought Ahaziah.
The account in the parallel passage is somewhat different.
"The current of the story at large is this," says Dr.
Lightfoot: "Jehu slayeth Joram in the field of Jezreel, as
Ahaziah and Joram were together: Ahaziah seeing this, flies,
and gets into Samaria, and hides himself there. Jehu marches
to Jezreel, and makes Jezebel dogs' meat: from thence sends
to Samaria for the heads of Ahab's children and posterity;
which are brought him by night, and shewed to the people in
the morning. Then he marches to Samaria, and, by the way,
slayeth forty-two of Ahab's kinsmen, and findeth Jehonadab,
the father of the Rechabites. Coming into Samaria, he maketh
search for Ahaziah: they find him hid, bring him to Jehu, and
he commands to carry him towards Gur, by Ibleam, and there to
slay him. They do so: smite him in his chariot, and his
charioteer driveth away to Megiddo before he dies." "2; Ki
9:27, at Megiddo, in the kingdom of Samaria."
