But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the LORD God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

10:31 Jehu took no heed. Despite Jehu’s apparent zeal to carry out God’s commands against Ahab and Baal worship, it was more in self-interest than out of love for God. It is noteworthy that Shalmaneser III, a prominent king of Assyria, mentioned Jehu in his so-called “Black Obelisk.” This four-sided black limestone object contains a number of bas-relief panels, one of which depicts Jehu paying tribute to the Assyrian emperor. The obelisk is now in the British Museum.
