And the dogs shall eat Jezebel in the portion of Jezreel, and there shall be none to bury her. And he opened the door, and fled.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

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).
