1 Kings 21:1-16

And it came to pass after
<0310>
these things
<01697>_,
[that] Naboth
<05022>
the Jezreelite
<03158>
had a vineyard
<03754>_,
which [was] in Jezreel
<03157>_,
hard by
<0681>
the palace
<01964>
of Ahab
<0256>
king
<04428>
of Samaria
<08111>_.
And Ahab
<0256>
spake
<01696> (8762)
unto Naboth
<05022>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Give
<05414> (8798)
me thy vineyard
<03754>_,
that I may have it for a garden
<01588>
of herbs
<03419>_,
because it [is] near
<07138>
unto
<0681>
my house
<01004>_:
and I will give
<05414> (8799)
thee for it a better
<02896>
vineyard
<03754>
than it; [or], if it seem good
<02896>
to thee
<05869>_,
I will give
<05414> (8799)
thee the worth
<04242>
of it in money
<03701>_.
{seem...: Heb. be good in thine eyes}
And Naboth
<05022>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Ahab
<0256>_,
The LORD
<03068>
forbid
<02486>
it me, that I should give
<05414> (8800)
the inheritance
<05159>
of my fathers
<01>
unto thee.
And Ahab
<0256>
came
<0935> (8799)
into his house
<01004>
heavy
<05620>
and displeased
<02198>
because of the word
<01697>
which Naboth
<05022>
the Jezreelite
<03158>
had spoken
<01696> (8765)
to him: for he had said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not give
<05414> (8799)
thee the inheritance
<05159>
of my fathers
<01>_.
And he laid him down
<07901> (8799)
upon his bed
<04296>_,
and turned away
<05437> (8686)
his face
<06440>_,
and would eat
<0398> (8804)
no bread
<03899>_.
But Jezebel
<0348>
his wife
<0802>
came
<0935> (8799)
to him, and said
<01696> (8762)
unto him, Why is thy spirit
<07307>
so sad
<05620>_,
that thou eatest
<0398> (8802)
no bread
<03899>_?
And he said
<01696> (8762)
unto her, Because I spake
<01696> (8762)
unto Naboth
<05022>
the Jezreelite
<03158>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Give
<05414> (8798)
me thy vineyard
<03754>
for money
<03701>_;
or else, if it please
<02655>
thee, I will give
<05414> (8799)
thee [another] vineyard
<03754>
for it: and he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not give
<05414> (8799)
thee my vineyard
<03754>_.
And Jezebel
<0348>
his wife
<0802>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Dost thou now govern
<06213> (8799)
the kingdom
<04410>
of Israel
<03478>_?
arise
<06965> (8798)_,
[and] eat
<0398> (8798)
bread
<03899>_,
and let thine heart
<03820>
be merry
<03190> (8799)_:
I will give
<05414> (8799)
thee the vineyard
<03754>
of Naboth
<05022>
the Jezreelite
<03158>_.
So she wrote
<03789> (8799)
letters
<05612>
in Ahab's
<0256>
name
<08034>_,
and sealed
<02856> (8799)
[them] with his seal
<02368>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
the letters
<05612>
unto the elders
<02205>
and to the nobles
<02715>
that [were] in his city
<05892>_,
dwelling
<03427> (8802)
with Naboth
<05022>_.
And she wrote
<03789> (8799)
in the letters
<05612>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Proclaim
<07121> (8798)
a fast
<06685>_,
and set
<03427> (8685)
Naboth
<05022>
on high
<07218>
among the people
<05971>_:
{on high...: Heb. in the top of the people}
And set
<03427> (8685)
two
<08147>
men
<0582>_,
sons
<01121>
of Belial
<01100>_,
before him, to bear witness
<05749> (8686)
against him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thou didst blaspheme
<01288> (8765)
God
<0430>
and the king
<04428>_.
And [then] carry him out
<03318> (8689)_,
and stone
<05619> (8798)
him, that he may die
<04191> (8799)_.
And the men
<0582>
of his city
<05892>_,
[even] the elders
<02205>
and the nobles
<02715>
who were the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
in his city
<05892>_,
did
<06213> (8799)
as Jezebel
<0348>
had sent
<07971> (8804)
unto them, [and] as it [was] written
<03789> (8803)
in the letters
<05612>
which she had sent
<07971> (8804)
unto them.
They proclaimed
<07121> (8804)
a fast
<06685>_,
and set
<03427> (8689)
Naboth
<05022>
on high
<07218>
among the people
<05971>_.
And there came
<0935> (8799)
in two
<08147>
men
<0582>_,
children
<01121>
of Belial
<01100>_,
and sat
<03427> (8799)
before him: and the men
<0582>
of Belial
<01100>
witnessed
<05749> (8686)
against him, [even] against Naboth
<05022>_,
in the presence of the people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Naboth
<05022>
did blaspheme
<01288> (8765)
God
<0430>
and the king
<04428>_.
Then they carried him forth
<03318> (8686)
out
<02351>
of the city
<05892>_,
and stoned
<05619> (8799)
him with stones
<068>_,
that he died
<04191> (8799)_.
Then they sent
<07971> (8799)
to Jezebel
<0348>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Naboth
<05022>
is stoned
<05619> (8795)_,
and is dead
<04191> (8799)_.
And it came to pass, when Jezebel
<0348>
heard
<08085> (8800)
that Naboth
<05022>
was stoned
<05619> (8795)_,
and was dead
<04191> (8799)_,
that Jezebel
<0348>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Ahab
<0256>_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
take possession
<03423> (8798)
of the vineyard
<03754>
of Naboth
<05022>
the Jezreelite
<03158>_,
which he refused
<03985> (8765)
to give
<05414> (8800)
thee for money
<03701>_:
for Naboth
<05022>
is not alive
<02416>_,
but dead
<04191> (8804)_.
And it came to pass, when Ahab
<0256>
heard
<08085> (8800)
that Naboth
<05022>
was dead
<04191> (8804)_,
that Ahab
<0256>
rose up
<06965> (8799)
to go down
<03381> (8800)
to the vineyard
<03754>
of Naboth
<05022>
the Jezreelite
<03158>_,
to take possession
<03423> (8800)
of it.
