Jezebel's Actions Costed Ahab

By Rev. Dr. Teresa Allissa Citro

“His wife Jezebel said to him,

'Aren’t you king of Israel? Get up, eat, and cheer up.

I’ll give you the vineyard belonging

to Naboth from Jezreel.”

1 Kings 21:7

“I will give you the vineyard.” What a statement. I wonder if Ahab knew his wife would bring disaster to him and his children? Talk about a horrible and evil wife, Jezebel takes first prize. There’s a saying, “Behind every great man, there’s a great woman.” For King Ahab this was not true. Jezebel contributed greatly to the disaster and downfall of her husband, her children, and ultimately, herself.
