Any of them who fail to appear will lose their lives." But Jehu was tricking them so he could destroy the servants of Baal. 20 Then Jehu ordered, "Make arrangements for a celebration for Baal." So they announced it. 21 Jehu sent invitations throughout Israel, and all the servants of Baal came; not one was absent. They arrived at the temple of Baal and filled it up from end to end.
