John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 9:7

I may avenge,&c. — That they were idolaters was bad enough: yet that is not mentioned here: the controversy God has with them, is for being persecutors. Nothing fills the measure of the iniquity of any prince so as this doth, nor brings a surer or sorer ruin.
