And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead,
&c.] Of which he was informed by Jezebel:
that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite,
to take possession of it;
if it was in Jezreel, that was sixteen miles from Samaria, and lay lower than that, in a valley, and therefore he is said to go down to it; and which he did very likely in great state and pomp, many of his nobles and captains accompanying him, as we read that Jehu and Bidkar did ride after him at this time, ( 2 Kings 9:25 ) .
