1 Kings 21:19-26 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
19 Tell him, 'This is what the LORD asks: Have you murdered someone just to confiscate [a vineyard]?' Then tell him, 'This is what the LORD says: At the place where the dogs licked up Naboth's blood, the dogs will lick up your blood.'" 20 Ahab asked Elijah, "So you've found me, my enemy?" Elijah answered, "I found you. Because you sold yourself to do what the LORD considers evil. 21 So I am going to bring evil on you. I will destroy your descendants. I will destroy every male in Ahab's [house], whether slave or freeman in Israel. 22 I will make your family like the family of Jeroboam (Nebat's son) and like the house of Baasha, son of Ahijah, because you made me furious. You led Israel to sin." 23 Then the LORD also spoke [through Elijah] about Jezebel: "The dogs will eat Jezebel inside the walls of Jezreel. 24 If anyone from Ahab's [house] dies in the city, dogs will eat him. If anyone dies in the country, birds will eat him." 25 There was no one else like Ahab. At the urging of his wife, he sold himself to do what the LORD considered evil. 26 He did many disgusting things as a result of worshiping idols as the Amorites had done. (The LORD confiscated their land for Israel.)
