1 Kings 21:9-14

21:9 This is what she wrote: 1  “Observe a time of fasting and seat Naboth in front of the people. 21:10 Also seat two villains opposite him and have them testify, ‘You cursed God and the king.’ Then take him out and stone him to death.”

21:11 The men of the 2  city, the leaders 3  and the nobles who lived there, 4  followed the written orders Jezebel had sent them. 5  21:12 They observed a time of fasting and put Naboth in front of the people. 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 6  outside the city and stoned him to death. 7  21:14 Then they reported to Jezebel, “Naboth has been stoned to death.” 8
