    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Kings 10:11

    Jehu slew all - So it appears that the great men who had so obsequiously taken off the heads of Ahab's seventy sons, fell also a sacrifice to the ambition of this incomparably bad man.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Kings 10:11

    So Jehu slew - Rather, "And Jehu slew." The reference is to fresh executions (compare 2 Kings 10:17). He proceeded on his bloody course, not merely destroying the remainder of the kindred of Ahab, but further putting to death all the most powerful of Ahab's partisans.

    His priests - Not the Baal priests generally, whose persecution came afterward 2 Kings 10:19, but only such of them as were attached to the court.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Kings 10:11

    10:11 Left none - In that place and kingdom; for he did leave some of the royal seed of Judah.
