Hosea 1:5

1:5 valley of Jezreel. Jezreel (meaning “God scatters”) was of the tribe of Judah (I Chronicles 4:3). However, there was more than one region called Jezreel in Israel. This particular prophecy was fulfilled first when Jehu slew the sons of Ahab in Jezreel (II Kings 10:1-14), and then when Shallum slew Zachariah, the descendant of Jehu, eliminating the dynasty of Jehu after four generations (note II Kings 10:30; 15:10-12), thus finally “aveng[ing] the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu (Hosea 1:4).”
