- 5 But Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, "How is it that your spirit is so sullen that you are not eating food?" F485 6 So he said to her, "Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite and said to him, `Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if it pleases you, I will give you a vineyard in its place.' But he said, `I will not give you my vineyard.' " 7 Jezebel his wife said to him, "Do R794 you now reign F486 over Israel? Arise, eat bread, and let your heart be joyful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite." 8 So R795 she wrote letters in Ahab's name and sealed them with his seal, and sent letters to the R796 elders and to the nobles who were living with Naboth in his city. 9 Now she wrote in the letters, saying, "Proclaim a fast and seat Naboth at the head of the people; 10 and seat two worthless R797 men before him, and let them testify against him, saying, `You R798 cursed God and the king.' Then take him out and stone R799 him to F487 death." 11 So the men of his city, the elders and the nobles who lived in his city, did as Jezebel had sent word to them, just as it was written in the letters which she had sent them. 12 They proclaimed R800 a fast and seated Naboth at the head of the people. 13 Then the two worthless men came in and sat before him; and the worthless men testified against him, even against Naboth, before the people, saying, "Naboth cursed God and the king." So R801 they took him outside the city and stoned him to F488 death with stones. 14 Then they sent word to Jezebel, saying, "Naboth has been stoned and is dead." 15 When Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, Jezebel said to Ahab, "Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth, the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead." 16 When Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, Ahab arose to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.
