2 Kings 5:7
When the king of Israel read the letter, he ripped his clothes and cried out, "Am I God? Can I kill and give life? Is this man sending me a request to heal a man's leprosy? Let's think about this he's looking for a reason to start a fight with me!"

But as for these enemies of mine who didn't want me to be their king bring them here and slaughter them in my presence!'"
God, if only you would execute the wicked, so that the men guilty of bloodshed would get away from me,
