portion of Jezreel
2 Kings 9:10
9:10 portion of Jezreel. Elijah had prophesied that dogs would lick the blood of King Ahab in the vineyard of Naboth, which Ahab had acquired by murdering Naboth (I Kings 21:19), and that dogs would eat Queen Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel (I Kings 21:23). The first prophecy was partly fulfilled at the death of Ahab, when dogs licked the blood spilled from his chariot and his armor (I Kings 22:38). It was completely fulfilled in the days of his son Joram, having been postponed by Ahab’s slight repentance (I Kings 21:29; II Kings 9:25-26). The prophecy against Jezebel was also literally fulfilled (II Kings 9:35-37).
