Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

When the heads were brought, Jehu had them piled up in two heaps before the city-gate, and spoke the next morning to the assembled people in front of them: "Ye are righteous. Behold I have conspired against my lord, and have slain him, but who has slain all these?" Jehu did not tell the people that the king's sons had been slain by his command, but spake as if this had been done without his interfering by a higher decree, that he might thereby justify his conspiracy in the eyes of the people, and make them believe what he says still further in 2 Kings 10:10 : "See then that of the word of the Lord nothing falls to the ground (i.e., remains unfulfilled) which Jehovah has spoken concerning the house of Ahab; and Jehovah has done what He spake through His servant Elijah."

he took him
Jehu asked for the hand of Jehonadab not merely for the purpose of assisting him into the chariot, but that he might give him an assurance that he would assist him in the prosecution of his desires; for {giving the hand} is considered as a pledge of friendship and fidelity, or a form of entering into a contract, among all nations. Mr. Bruce relates, that when he entreated the protection of a sheik, the great people who were assembled came, `and after {joining hands}, repeated a kind of prayer, of about two minutes long; by which they declared themselves and their children accursed, if ever they lifted their hands against me in the {tell} (or field) in the desert, or on the river; or, in case that I, or mine, should fly to them to refuge, if they did not protect us at the risk of their lives, their families, and their fortunes, or, as they emphatically expressed it, to the death of the last male child among them.' Another striking instance occurs in Ockley's {History of the Saracens.} Telha, just before he died, asked one of Ali's men if he belonged to the emperor of the faithful; and being informed that he did, `Give me then,' said he, `your hand, that I may put mine in it, and by this action renew the oath of fidelity which I have already made to Ali.'

Acts 8:31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.
