Or, if it seems good to you, I will give you its worth in money."

1 Kings 21:1-7 3 But Naboth said to Ahab, "The Lord forbid that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you!"4 So Ahab went into his house sullen and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him; for he had said, "I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers." And he lay down on his bed, and turned away his face, and

would eat no food. 1 Kings 21:1-7 5 But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said to him, "Why is your spirit so sullen that you eat no food?"6 He said to her, "Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite, and said to him, ' Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if it pleases you, I will give you another vineyard for it. ' And he answered, 'I will not

give you my vineyard. '" 1 Kings 21:1-7 7 Then Jezebel his wife said to him, "You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite." AHAB &

1 Kings 21:5-6 His Wicked Wife 7 Then Jezebel his wife said to him, You now exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite. 1 Kings 21:7

His Wicked Wife 8 And she wrote letters in Ahabs name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. 9 She wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; 10 and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, You have blasphemed

God and the king. Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die. 1 Kings 21:8-10 His Wicked Wife 11 So the men of his city, the elders and nobles who were inhabitants of his city, did as Jezebel had sent to them, as it was written in the letters which she had sent to them. 12 They proclaimed a fast, and seated Naboth with high honor among the

people. His Wicked Wife 13 And two men, scoundrels, came in and sat before him; and the scoundrels witnessed against him, against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth has blasphemed God and the king! Then they took him outside the city and stoned him with stones, so that he

died. 1 Kings 21:11-13 His Wicked Wife 14 Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, Naboth has been stoned and is dead. 15 And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the

Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead. 16 So it was, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab got up and went down to take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite. 1 Kings 21:1416 God sees & knows all things 17 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 18 Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who

lives in Samaria. There he is, in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone down to take possession of it. 1 Kings 21:17-18 God sees & knows all things 19 You shall speak to him, saying, Thus says the Lord: Have you murdered and also taken possession? And you shall speak to him, saying, Thus says the Lord:

In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, dogs shall lick your blood, even yours. 1 Kings 21:19 God sees & knows all things So Ahab said to Elijah, Have you found me, O my enemy? 1 Kings 21:20a

God sees & knows all things And he answered, I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do evil in the sight of the Lord: 21 Behold, I will bring calamity on you. I will take away your posterity, and will cut off from Ahab every male in Israel, both bond and free. 22 I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, because

of the provocation with which you have provoked Me to anger, and made Israel sin. God sees & knows all things 23 And concerning Jezebel the Lord also spoke, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall[a] of Jezreel. 24 The dogs shall eat whoever belongs to Ahab and dies in the city, and the birds of the air shall eat whoever dies in the field.

1 Kings 21:20b-24 God sees & knows all things 25 But there was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do wickedness in the sight of the Lord, because Jezebel his wife stirred him up. 26 And he behaved very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amorites had done, whom the Lord had cast out before the children of

Israel. 1 Kings 21:25-26 God sees & knows all things 27 So it was, when Ahab heard those words, that he tore his clothes and put sackcloth on his body, and fasted and lay in sackcloth, and went about mourning. 28 And the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,

God sees & knows all things 29 See how Ahab has humbled himself before Me? Because he has humbled himself before Me, I will not bring the calamity in his days. In the days of his son I will bring the calamity on his house. 1 Kings 21:27-29

of sin, but God exposes them all. 2. God ruins the plans of evil, as He brings them to light. The humbled sinner will repent, while the proud will perish. Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished; But the posterity of the righteous will be delivered. Proverbs
