"When Jezebel heard the news, she said to Ahab, “You know the vineyard Naboth wouldn’t sell you? Well, you can have it now! He’s dead!” So Ahab immediately went down to the vineyard of Naboth to claim it." 1 Kings 21:15-16 (NLT)
Ahab was a man who didn't like doing things God's way. He married the wicked woman Jezebel which only made matters worse. She encouraged, supported and participated in his evil narcissistic lifestyle. He also made a point to listen to spiritual leaders who told him what he wanted to hear and encouraged him to do what he shouldn't do.
