The details of the death of Jezebel as told in 2 Kgs 9: 30-37 stay in the mind long after the account has been read. In this reading I apply different interpretive frames in an attempt to understand the dynamics both within and behind the text, recognizing that Jezebel and the writer(s) can be seen in different lights depending on the viewing. A reading that highlights the "woman in the window" motif hints at a goddess dimension within the Jezebel frame, which resists the text's attempted erasure. An overlying psychoanalytical frame allows the text to be read as one of many textual grapplings with the M(Other) lingering within the body. The possibility of such an innate resistance provides an answer to the question whether such careful viewing of such a text matters.
