Now the rest of the acts of Jehu, and all that he did, and all his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

10:34 acts of Jehu. The name Jehu appears on the famous “black obelisk” of Shalmanezer III, found at Nimrud, near Nineveh, in the nineteenth century. It depicts one of the “acts of Jehu” not recorded in the Bible, showing him bowing and paying tribute to the Assyrian king, evidently during the days when “the Lord began to cut Israel short” (II Kings 10:32). The obelisk also mentions the name of Omri as the predecessor of Jehu (I Kings 16:23).
