Ahab disobeyed tod and failed to
tollow up his victory over iten-Iiadad
(ch. 20:31.34). Thertupon one of Iho
prophets resorted to a plan whereby
Ahab uais rebuked and also receivetd
a uessage that sent him "to his h0o1no
heavy and displeased" (v. 43). All of
this needs to be bortne in mind when

Ahab had been king for twenty years
(Il. C. 90t'). .1e;.trcel wats his summer
capital. about twventy miles northwest
of Samaria. The chief aetors in this
tragedy were N abot h, a well-to-do citi
Fen; Ahab, a pet tulant monarch to
whom Naiboth refuses to sell his vine
yard; .lezetiol. the I.dy Macbeth of
Ahab's court; elders and nobles of

tion; false witnesses. executioner, and
Eliah.h, the servant of God. who con
fronted the monarch in his newly
gained possession. Ahab was con
stantly in contlict with the purposes
of Glod and with his Word. Naboth
had no right to sell his vineyard (seo
Numbers 36-7; 1.ev. 2i:23; also FEzek.
46 16) and sturdily stood out for his
God-given rights. These land laws
were rigid, but at the same time wise
and beneficial. Instead of yielding to
God's law Ahab sulks like a petted
child tv. 41 and thus again runs coun
ter to God's Word (see tenth com
mandment). At this juncture Jezebel,
his wife, appeals to his pride and
power as the king (v. 71, and offers
to procure the coveted possession. The
nmethods of mankind whereby vast pos
sessions are accumulated do not al
ways bear investigation; murder and

11. The Sentence of God, vv. 17.20.
The dead Naboth was happier than his
neigLbors of Jezreel, the king and
queen or any of the other evil par
ticipa:tE. Ahab began by breaking
the frst commandment Il Kings 16:31;
Lbeut. 5:7i and thus laid the ground
wor k of the whole train of evil for
which he and his household and his
reign are fam~ous. The e~dors readily
obeyed the word of Jezebel and Ahab
prof>ad thereby, but now he was to
hear the Waord of Gc-.d and it was not

t he pleasure of posse'sring his ill-got

wor d of doom (chi. 20(:42; 23-J's). It
was a poor exchange Ahab made
