Bible: 1 Kings 21:17-24

21:17 The Lord told Elijah the Tishbite: 1  21:18 Get up, go down and meet King Ahab of Israel who lives in Samaria. He is at the vineyard of Naboth; he has gone down there to take possession of it. 21:19 Say to him, ‘This is what the Lord says: “Haven’t you committed murder and taken possession of the property of the deceased?”’ Then say to him, ‘This is what the Lord says: “In the spot where dogs licked up Naboth’s blood they will also lick up your blood – yes, yours!”’

21:20 When Elijah arrived, Ahab said to him, 2 So, you have found me, my enemy!” Elijah 3  replied, “I have found you, because you are committed 4  to doing evil in the sight of 5  the Lord. 21:21 The Lord says, 6  ‘Look, I am ready to bring disaster 7  on you. I will destroy you 8  and cut off every last male belonging to Ahab in Israel, including even the weak and incapacitated. 9  21:22 I will make your dynasty 10  like those of Jeroboam son of Nebat and Baasha son of Ahijah because you angered me and made Israel sin.’ 11  21:23 The Lord says this about Jezebel, ‘Dogs will devour Jezebel by the outer wall 12  of Jezreel.’ 21:24 As for Ahab’s family, dogs will eat the ones 13  who die in the city, and the birds of the sky will eat the ones who die in the country.”
