2 And Ahab spake vnto Naboth, saying, Giue me thy vineyard, that I may haue it for a garden of herbes, because it is neere vnto my house, and I will giue thee for it a better vineyard then it: or if it seeme good to thee, I will giue thee the worth of it in money.
4 And Ahab came into his house, heauie, and displeased, because of the word which Naboth the Iezreelite had spoken to him: for he had saide, I will not giue thee the inheritance of my fathers: and he laid him downe vpon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eate no bread.
6 And he said vnto her, Because I spake vnto Naboth the Iezreelite, and said vnto him, Giue mee thy vineyard for money, or else if it please thee, I will giue thee another vineyard for it: And he answered, I wil not giue thee my vineyard.
11 And the men of his citie, euen the Elders and the Nobles who were the inhabitants in his citie, did as Iezebel had sent vnto them, and as it was written in the letters which she had sent vnto them.
13 And there came in two men, children of Belial, and sate before him: and the men of Belial witnessed against him, euen against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king. Then they caried him foorth out of the citie, and stoned him with stones, that hee died.
15 ¶ And it came to passe when Iezebel heard that Naboth was stoned and was dead, that Iezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the Uineyard of Naboth the Iezreelite, which hee refused to giue thee for money: for Naboth is not aliue, but dead.
19 And thou shalt speake vnto him, saying, Thus saith the Lord, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speake vnto him, saying, Thus saith the Lord; In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, shall dogges licke thy blood, euen thine.
22 And will make thine house like the house of Ieroboam the sonne of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the sonne of Ahiiah, for the prouocation wherewith thou hast prouoked mee to anger, and made Israel to sinne.

Greetings in the Sovereign Name of the Lord Jesus Christ! I believe the Lord God shows that His heart is SO MOVED by ANY show of humility when man does wrong, that He's willing to deal with the LEAST of sincere reaction on our part! (I say least because King Ahab's reaction to the prophecy of doom was a sincere reaction of fear, yet pathetic in the REPENTANCE dept.; far from what Proverbs 28:13 & 1 John 1:7-10 calls for!) If God softened the sentence because of Ahab's feeble reaction, think of what He does for people that TRULY TAKE HIS WORD SERIOUSLY AND SUBMIT TO JESUS CHRIST FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO REALLY CHANGE THEM! Note: the GUILT is removed, but not the earthly consequences and heartfelt remorse!

If unbelievers could fast in order do evil and wickedness, how wonderful it will be when believers fast and pray according the word of GOD. The GOD of all creation will hear our prayers and answer us speedily.

Ahab was not a man after God's heart, but David was.
True David lusted after, and took another man's wife yet he repented in Psalm 51 he prayed create in me a clean heart, and restore a steadfast spirit in me. Ahab never did repent of the wicked sin he committed, and as the prophet told him the dogs would lick his, and his wife's blood in that vineyard. Be not deceived God is not mocked, whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap Gal.6:7
This should teach all of us to be careful what we sow, because it will come back to us. We should sow to the spirit, and we will reap eternal life.

I CAN NOT HELP BUT TO THINK OF DAVID, WHEN I READ THIS CHAPTER. AS DAVID DID TO OBTAIN ANOTHER MAN'S WIFE, AHAB HAS DONE FOR A VINEYARD.
WE SOMETIMES SELL OURSELVES FOR POSSESSIONS, IN THE SIGHT OF GOD. GOD'S WORD IS CLEAR, ON SEEKING HIM FIRST AND ALL THINGS WILL BE ADDED. BUT IN THIS DAY AND TIME, OUR PATIENCE AND EGO'S GET IN THE WAY. AND JUST LIKE DAVID AND AHAB, THERE IS A PRICE TO PAY FOR DISOBEYING GOD'S WORD.
