    10  And the _____ shall eat Jezebel in the territory of Jezreel, and none shall bury her.” Then he opened the door and fled. -2 Kings 9:10

    • A.

      Bears

    • B.

      Dogs

    • C.

      Lions

    Correct Answer
    B. Dogs
    Explanation
    In this passage from 2 Kings 9:10, the speaker is prophesying about what will happen to Jezebel. The speaker states that dogs will eat Jezebel in the territory of Jezreel and no one will bury her. This suggests that Jezebel will meet a gruesome and undignified end, as dogs are often associated with scavenging and devouring. The mention of dogs as the ones who will eat Jezebel implies that her death will not be honorable or respected.

    Explanation
    The passage from 2 Kings 9:35 describes a situation where a person's body was found partially decomposed, leaving only the skull, feet, and palms of her hands. The word "palms" refers to the inner part of the hands, where the fingers meet the wrist. This answer is supported by the context of the passage, which mentions body parts, and the specific mention of the hands.
