As for the other events of Ahab’s reign, including all he did, the palace he built and adorned with ivory, and the cities he fortified, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel?
Now the rest of the acts of Ahab, and all that he did, and
the ivory house which he made
Which, being a very curious and extraordinary thing, is
particularly mentioned; though perhaps it might not be made
wholly of ivory, but inlaid with it; we read of ivory houses in (
Amos 3:15 ) ,
and all the cities that he built, are they not written in
the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
in which the acts of his predecessors were recorded, see (
14:19 ) ( 15:31 ) (
16:27 ) not the Scripture book of Chronicles, for there none
of these things are related.
