1 H310 And it came to pass after H1697 these things, H5022 that Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite H3754 had a vineyard, H3157 which was in Jezreel, H681 hard by H1964 the palace H256 of Ahab H4428 king H8111 of Samaria.
2 H256 And Ahab H1696 spoke H5022 unto Naboth, H559 saying, H5414 Give H3754 me your vineyard, H1588 that I may have it for a garden H3419 of herbs, H7138 because it is near H681 unto H1004 my house: H5414 and I will give H2896 you for it a better H3754 vineyard H2896 than it; or, if it seem good H5869 to you, H5414 I will give H4242 you the worth H3701 of it in money.
3 H5022 And Naboth H559 said H256 to Ahab, H3068 The Lord H2486 forbid H5414 it me, that I should give H5159 the inheritance H1 of my fathers unto you.
4 H256 And Ahab H935 came H1004 into his house H5620 heavy H2198 and displeased H1697 because of the word H5022 which Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite H1696 had spoken H559 to him: for he had said, H5414 I will not give H5159 you the inheritance H1 of my fathers. H7901 And he laid him down H4296 upon his bed, H5437 and turned away H6440 his face, H398 and would eat H3899 no bread.
5 H348 But Jezebel H802 his wife H935 came H1696 to him, and said H7307 unto him, Why is your spirit H5620 so sad, H398 that you eat H3899 no bread?
6 H1696 And he said H1696 unto her, Because I spoke H5022 unto Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite, H559 and said H5414 unto him, Give H3754 me your vineyard H3701 for money; H2655 or else, if it please H5414 you, I will give H3754 you another vineyard H559 for it: and he answered, H5414 I will not give H3754 you my vineyard.
7 H348 And Jezebel H802 his wife H559 said H6213 unto him, Do you now govern H4410 the kingdom H3478 of Israel? H6965 arise, H398 and eat H3899 bread, H3820 and let your heart H3190 be merry: H5414 I will give H3754 you the vineyard H5022 of Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite.
8 H3789 So she wrote H5612 letters H256 in Ahab's H8034 name, H2856 and sealed H2368 them with his seal, H7971 and sent H5612 the letters H2205 unto the elders H2715 and to the nobles H5892 that were in his city, H3427 living H5022 with Naboth.
9 H3789 And she wrote H5612 in the letters, H559 saying, H7121 Proclaim H6685 a fast, H3427 and set H5022 Naboth H7218 on high H5971 among the people:
10 H3427 And set H8147 two H582 men, H1121 sons H1100 of Belial, H5749 before him, to carry witness H559 against him, saying, H1288 You did blaspheme H430 God H4428 and the king. H3318 And then carry him out, H5619 and stone H4191 him, that he may die.
11 H582 And the men H5892 of his city, H2205 even the elders H2715 and the nobles H3427 who were the inhabitants H5892 in his city, H6213 did H348 as Jezebel H7971 had sent H3789 unto them, and as it was written H5612 in the letters H7971 which she had sent unto them.
12 H7121 They proclaimed H6685 a fast, H3427 and set H5022 Naboth H7218 on high H5971 among the people.
13 H935 And there came H8147 in two H582 men, H1121 sons H1100 of Belial, H3427 and sat H582 before him: and the men H1100 of Belial H5749 witnessed H5022 against him, even against Naboth, H5971 in the presence of the people, H559 saying, H5022 Naboth H1288 did blaspheme H430 God H4428 and the king. H3318 Then they carried him forth H2351 out H5892 of the city, H5619 and stoned H68 him with stones, H4191 that he died.
14 H7971 Then they sent H348 to Jezebel, H559 saying, H5022 Naboth H5619 is stoned, H4191 and is dead.
15 H348 And it came to pass, when Jezebel H8085 heard H5022 that Naboth H5619 was stoned, H4191 and was dead, H348 that Jezebel H559 said H256 to Ahab, H6965 Arise, H3423 take possession H3754 of the vineyard H5022 of Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite, H3985 which he refused H5414 to give H3701 you for money: H5022 for Naboth H2416 is not alive, H4191 but dead.
16 H256 And it came to pass, when Ahab H8085 heard H5022 that Naboth H4191 was dead, H256 that Ahab H6965 rose up H3381 to go down H3754 to the vineyard H5022 of Naboth H3158 the Jezreelite, H3423 to take possession of it.
18 H6965 Arise, H3381 go down H7125 to meet H256 Ahab H4428 king H3478 of Israel, H8111 which is in Samaria: H3754 behold, he is in the vineyard H5022 of Naboth, H3381 where he is gone down H3423 to possess it.
19 H1696 And you shall speak H559 unto him, saying, H559 Thus says H3068 the Lord, H7523 Have you killed, H3423 and also taken possession? H1696 And you shall speak H559 unto him, saying, H559 Thus says H3068 the Lord, H4725 In the place H3611 where dogs H3952 licked H1818 the blood H5022 of Naboth H3611 shall dogs H3952 lick H1818 your blood, even your.
20 H256 And Ahab H559 said H452 to Elijah, H4672 Have you found H341 me, O my enemy? H559 And he answered, H4672 I have found H4376 you: because you have sold H6213 yourself to work H7451 evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the Lord.
21 H935 Behold, I will bring H7451 evil H1197 upon you, and will take away H310 your posterity, H3772 and will cut off H256 from Ahab H8366 him that urinates H7023 against the wall, H6113 and him that is shut up H5800 and left H3478 in Israel,
22 H5414 And will make H1004 your house H1004 like the house H3379 of Jeroboam H1121 the son H5028 of Nebat, H1004 and like the house H1201 of Baasha H1121 the son H281 of Ahijah, H3708 for the provocation H3707 with which you have provoked me to anger, H3478 and made Israel H2398 to sin.
23 H348 And of Jezebel H1696 also spoke H3068 the Lord, H559 saying, H3611 The dogs H398 shall eat H348 Jezebel H2426 by the wall H3157 of Jezreel.
24 H4191 Him that dies H256 of Ahab H5892 in the city H3611 the dogs H398 shall eat; H4191 and him that dies H7704 in the field H5775 shall the birds H8064 of the air H398 eat.
25 H256 But there was none like unto Ahab, H4376 which did sell H6213 himself to work H7451 wickedness H5869 in the sight H3068 of the Lord, H348 whom Jezebel H802 his wife H5496 stirred up.
26 H3966 And he did very H8581 abominably H3212 in following H1544 idols, H6213 according to all things as did H567 the Amorites, H3068 whom the Lord H3423 cast out H6440 before H1121 the sons H3478 of Israel.
27 H256 And it came to pass, when Ahab H8085 heard H1697 those words, H7167 that he tore H899 his clothes, H7760 and put H8242 sackcloth H1320 upon his flesh, H6684 and fasted, H7901 and lay H8242 in sackcloth, H1980 and went H328 softly.
