The Lord Condemns Ahab

17 1Then the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 18 "Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, who is in 2Samaria; behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone to take possession. 19 And you shall say to him, 'Thus says the LORD, "Have you killed and also taken possession?"' And you shall say to him, 'Thus says the LORD: 3"In the place where dogs licked up the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick your own blood."'" 20 Ahab said to Elijah, 4"Have you found me, O my enemy?" He answered, "I have found you, because 5you have sold yourself to do what is evil in the sight of the LORD. 21 Behold, I will bring disaster upon you. I will utterly burn you up, and 6will cut off from Ahab every male, bond or free, in Israel. 22 And I will make your house like 7the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like 8the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, for the anger to which you have provoked me, and because you 9have made Israel to sin. 23 And of Jezebel the LORD also said, 10'The dogs shall eat Jezebel within 11the walls of Jezreel.' 24 12Anyone belonging to Ahab who dies in the city the dogs shall eat, and anyone of his who dies in the open country the birds of the heavens shall eat."
