Word of the Day: Jehu

Since receiving a Word A Day Calendar, I’ve decided to write a short something including my new word each day.

jehu

noun je·hu ˈjē-(ˌ)hyü, -(ˌ)hü

  1. 1 capitalized :  a king of Israel in the ninth century b.c. who according to the account in II Kings had Jezebel killed in accordance with Elijah’s prophecy

  2. 2 :  a driver of a coach or cab

Tom from Downton Abbey used to drive the Crowley’s jehu, but he moved on up by marrying the bosses daughter.
