And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.
And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jez'reelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.
And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jez'reelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.
And there came in two men, children of Be'li-al, and sat before him: and the men of Be'li-al witnessed against him, even against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king. Then they carried him forth out of the city, and stoned him with stones, that he died.
¶ And it came to pass, when Jez'ebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jez'ebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jez'reelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead.
And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.
and will make thine house like the house of Jerobo'am the son of Nebat, and like the house of Ba'asha the son of Ahi'jah, for the provocation wherewith thou hast provoked me to anger, and made Israel to sin.
