'I am going to bring disaster on you. I will consume your descendants and cut off from Ahab every last male1 in Israel--slave or free.222
I will make your house3 like that of Jeroboam son of Nebat and that of Baasha son of Ahijah, because you have provoked me to anger and have caused Israel to sin.'423
"And also concerning Jezebel the LORD says: 'Dogs5 will devour Jezebel by the wall ofa Jezreel.'
"Dogs6 will eat those belonging to Ahab who die in the city, and the birds of the air7 will feed on those who die in the country."
(There was never8 a man like Ahab, who sold himself to do evil in the eyes of the LORD, urged on by Jezebel his wife.
He behaved in the vilest manner by going after idols, like the Amorites9 the LORD drove out before Israel.)
When Ahab heard these words, he tore his clothes, put on sackcloth10 and fasted. He lay in sackcloth and went around meekly.1128
Then the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite:
"Have you noticed how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has humbled12 himself, I will not bring this disaster in his day,13 but I will bring it on his house in the days of his son."14
