1 This is what happened next: Naboth of Jezreel had a vineyard close by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria,
1Kgs 18:45-46 2Chr 28:22 Judg 6:33 1Kgs 20:35-43 1Sam 29:1 Ezra 9:13-14 Hos 1:4-5
2 and Ahab said to Naboth, 'Give me your vineyard to be my vegetable garden, since it adjoins my palace; I will give you a better vineyard for it or, if you prefer, I will give you its value in money.'
1Sam 8:14 1Sam 8:6 1Sam 29:6 1Tim 6:9 2Kgs 9:27 Deut 5:21 Deut 11:10
3 Naboth, however, said to Ahab, 'Yahweh forbid that I should give you my ancestral heritage!'
Lev 25:23 Num 36:7 Ezek 46:18 1Chr 11:19 1Cor 6:15 1Sam 12:23 1Sam 24:6
4 Ahab went home gloomy and out of temper at the words of Naboth of Jezreel, 'I will not give you my heritage from my ancestors.' He lay down on his bed and turned his face away and refused to eat.
1Kgs 20:43 Jas 1:14 1Kgs 21:3 2Sam 13:2 2Sam 13:4 Eccl 6:9 Eccl 7:8-9
5 His wife Jezebel came to him. 'Why are you so dispirited,' she said, 'that you refuse to eat?'
1Kgs 16:31 1Kgs 18:4 1Kgs 19:2 1Kgs 21:25 2Sam 13:4 Esth 4:5 Gen 3:6
6 He said, 'I have been talking to Naboth of Jezreel. I said, "Give me your vineyard either for money or, if you prefer, for another vineyard in exchange." But he said, "I will not give you my vineyard." '
1Kgs 21:2-4 1Tim 6:9-10 Esth 5:9-14 Esth 6:12 Jas 4:2-7 Prov 14:30
7 Then his wife Jezebel said, 'Some king of Israel you make! Get up, eat and take heart; I myself shall get you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.'
1Kgs 21:15-16 1Sam 8:4 1Sam 8:14 2Sam 13:4 Dan 5:19-21 Eccl 4:1 Eccl 8:4
8 So she wrote a letter in Ahab's name and sealed it with his seal, sending the letter to the elders and notables of the city where Naboth lived.
1Kgs 20:7 1Kgs 21:1 2Chr 32:17 2Kgs 10:1-7 2Kgs 10:11 2Sam 11:14-15 Deut 16:18-19
9 In the letter, she wrote, 'Proclaim a fast, and put Naboth in a prominent place among the people.
Gen 34:13-17 Isa 58:4 John 18:28 Luke 20:47 Matt 2:8 Matt 23:13
10 There confront him with a couple of scoundrels who will accuse him as follows, "You have cursed God and the king." Then take him outside and stone him to death.'
Acts 6:11 Exod 22:28 Deut 13:13 Lev 24:15-16 Acts 6:13 Deut 19:15 John 10:33
11 The men of Naboth's city, the elders and notables living in his city, did what Jezebel ordered, as was written in the letter which she had sent him.
1Sam 22:17 1Sam 23:20 2Chr 24:21 2Kgs 10:6-7 Acts 4:19 Acts 5:29 Dan 3:18-25
12 They proclaimed a fast and put Naboth in a prominent place among the people.
Isa 58:4 1Kgs 21:8-10
13 The two scoundrels then came and confronted him, and the scoundrels then publicly accused Naboth as follows, 'Naboth has cursed God and the king.' He was then taken outside the city and stoned to death.
2Kgs 9:26 Acts 6:11 Acts 7:57-59 Acts 24:5 Amos 7:10 Deut 5:20 Deut 13:10
14 They then sent word to Jezebel, 'Naboth has been stoned to death.'
2Sam 11:14-24 Eccl 5:8 Eccl 8:14
15 When Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned to death, she said to Ahab, 'Get up! Take possession of the vineyard which Naboth of Jezreel refused to sell you, for Naboth is no longer alive, he is dead.'
1Kgs 21:7 Prov 1:10-16 Prov 4:17
16 When Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, he got up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth of Jezreel and take possession of it.
2Pet 2:15 2Sam 1:13-16 2Sam 4:9-12 2Sam 11:25-27 2Sam 23:15-17 Isa 33:15 Obad 1:12-14
17 Then the word of Yahweh came to Elijah the Tishbite,
Ps 9:12 2Kgs 1:15-16 2Kgs 5:26 Isa 26:21
18 'Up! Go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, in Samaria. You will find him in Naboth's vineyard; he has gone down to take possession of it.
1Kgs 13:32 2Chr 22:9
19 You are to say this to him, "Yahweh says this: You have committed murder and now you usurp as well. For this -- and Yahweh says this -- in the place where the dogs licked the blood of Naboth, the dogs will lick your blood too." '
1Kgs 22:38 2Sam 12:9 2Kgs 9:25-26 2Sam 12:11 Esth 7:10 Gen 3:11 Gen 4:9-10
20 Ahab said to Elijah, 'So you have caught me, O my enemy!' Elijah answered, 'I have caught you! For your double dealing, and since you have done what is displeasing to Yahweh,
1Kgs 18:17 1Kgs 21:25 2Kgs 17:17 Rom 7:14 1Kgs 16:30 1Kgs 22:8 2Chr 18:7
21 I shall now bring disaster down on you; I shall sweep away your descendants and wipe out every manjack of the House of Ahab, fettered or free in Israel.
1Kgs 14:10 1Sam 25:22 1Sam 25:34 2Kgs 9:7-9 2Kgs 10:1-7 2Kgs 10:11-14 2Kgs 10:17
22 I shall treat your House as I treated the house of Jeroboam son of Nebat and of Baasha son of Ahijah, for provoking my anger and leading Israel into sin.
1Kgs 16:3 1Kgs 14:16 1Kgs 16:11 1Kgs 12:30 1Kgs 15:29-30 1Kgs 15:34 1Kgs 16:26
23 (Against Jezebel too Yahweh spoke these words, "The dogs will eat Jezebel in the Field of Jezreel.")
2Kgs 9:10 2Kgs 9:30-37 1Kgs 21:25
24 Those of Ahab's family who die in the city, the dogs will eat; and those who die in the open country, the birds of the air will eat.'
1Kgs 14:11 1Kgs 16:4 Ezek 32:4-5 Ezek 39:18-20 Isa 14:19 Jer 15:3 Rev 19:18
25 And indeed there never was anyone like Ahab for double dealing and for doing what is displeasing to Yahweh, urged on by Jezebel his wife.
1Kgs 21:20 1Kgs 16:30-33 1Kgs 11:1-4 1Kgs 18:4 1Kgs 19:2 1Kgs 21:7 2Kgs 17:17
26 He behaved in the most abominable way, adhering to idols, just as the Amorites had, whom Yahweh had dispossessed for the Israelites.
2Kgs 21:11 Gen 15:16 Lev 18:25-30 1Kgs 15:12 1Pet 4:3 2Chr 15:8 2Chr 33:2
27 When Ahab heard these words, he tore his garments and put sackcloth next to his skin and fasted; he slept in the sackcloth; he walked with slow steps.
2Kgs 6:30 Gen 37:34 2Sam 3:31 2Kgs 18:37 2Sam 12:16-17 Isa 22:12 Isa 38:15
28 Then the word of Yahweh came to Elijah the Tishbite,
29 'Have you seen how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Since he has humbled himself before me, I shall not bring the disaster in his days; I shall bring the disaster down on his House in his son's days.'
2Kgs 9:25-26 2Pet 3:9 2Kgs 9:33-7 2Kgs 10:11 Exod 10:3 Ezek 33:10-11 Jer 7:17
