1 Kings 21:13-16

Context
21:13 The two villains arrived and sat opposite him. Then the villains testified against Naboth right before the people, saying, “Naboth cursed God and the king.” So they dragged him 1  outside the city and stoned him to death. 2  21:14 Then they reported to Jezebel, “Naboth has been stoned to death.” 3 

21:15 When Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned to death, she 4  said to Ahab, “Get up, take possession of the vineyard Naboth the Jezreelite refused to sell you for silver, for Naboth is no longer alive; he’s dead.” 21:16 When Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, 5  he got up and went down to take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.

1 tn Heb “led him.”

2 tn Heb “and they stoned him with stones and he died.”

3 tn Heb “Naboth was stoned and he died.” So also in v. 15.

4 tn Heb “Jezebel”; the proper name has been replaced by the pronoun (“she”) in the translation for stylistic reasons.

5 tc The Old Greek translation includes the following words here: “he tore his garments and put on sackcloth. After these things.”
