1 Kings 21:13

And there came in two men, children of Belial, and sat before
him
Which position showed that they were his accusers, and had a charge against him; it being usual for the accusers and accused to be set face to face, as it was the manner of the Romans in later times, (Acts 25:16) . Josephus says F4 there were "three" men to accuse him; but the Targum, and all the ancient versions, have only "two":

and the men of Belial witnessed against him, [even] against Naboth, in
the presence of the people;
both before the judges of the court, and before all the people that filled it, who came to hear the trial; so bold and impudent were they:

saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king;
or "bless", an euphemism; the phrase of cursing God being shocking to the ear, and therefore such a word is used to express it, see (Job 1:5) (2:9) ,

then they carried him forth out of the city;
without any further process of examining witnesses, and of hearing what the accused had to say in his defence; but immediately they carried him out of court, and out of the city, to put him to death, malefactors being executed always without the city:

and stoned him with stones, that he died;
which was the death blasphemers were put to, (Leviticus 24:14,23) , of the manner of which, (See Gill on 7:58), it seems from (2 Kings 9:26) , that his sons were stoned with him.
