1 Kings 21


1  And it came to pass1961 after310 these428 things,1697 that Naboth5022 the Jezreelite3158 had1961 a vineyard,3754 which834 was in Jezreel,3157 hard681 by the palace1964 of Ahab256 king4428 of Samaria.8111

2  And Ahab256 spoke1696 unto413 Naboth,5022 saying,559 Give5414 me 853 thy vineyard,3754 that I may have1961 it for a garden1588 of herbs,3419 because3588 it1931 is near unto7138 681 my house:1004 and I will give5414 thee for8478 it a better2896 vineyard3754 than4480 it; or, if518 it seem good to thee,2895 5869 I will give5414 thee the worth4242 of it2088 in money.3701

3  And Naboth5022 said559 to413 Ahab,256 The LORD4480 3068 forbid2486 it me, that I should give4480 5414 853 the inheritance5159 of my fathers1 unto thee.

4  And Ahab256 came935 into413 his house1004 heavy5620 and displeased2198 because5921 of the word1697 which834 Naboth5022 the Jezreelite3158 had spoken1696 to413 him: for he had said,559 I will not3808 give5414 thee 853 the inheritance5159 of my fathers.1 And he laid him down7901 upon5921 his bed,4296 and turned away5437 853 his face,6440 and would eat398 no3808 bread.3899

5  But Jezebel348 his wife802 came935 to413 him, and said1696 unto413 him, Why4100 2088 is thy spirit7307 so sad,5620 that thou eatest398 no369 bread?3899

6  And he said1696 unto413 her, Because3588 I spoke1696 unto413 Naboth5022 the Jezreelite,3158 and said559 unto him, Give5414 me 853 thy vineyard3754 for money;3701 or176 else, if518 it please2654 thee,859 I will give5414 thee another vineyard3754 for8478 it: and he answered,559 I will not3808 give5414 thee 853 my vineyard.3754

7  And Jezebel348 his wife802 said559 unto413 him, Dost thou859 now6258 govern6213 5921 the kingdom4410 of Israel?3478 arise,6965 and eat398 bread,3899 and let thine heart3820 be merry:3190 I589 will give5414 thee 853 the vineyard3754 of Naboth5022 the Jezreelite.3158

8  So she wrote3789 letters5612 in Ahab's256 name,8034 and sealed2856 them with his seal,2368 and sent7971 the letters5612 unto413 the elders2205 and to413 the nobles2715 that834 were in his city,5892 dwelling3427 with854 Naboth.5022

9  And she wrote3789 in the letters,5612 saying,559 Proclaim7121 a fast,6685 and set3427 853 Naboth5022 on high7218 among the people:5971

10  And set3427 two8147 men,376 sons1121 of Belial,1100 before5048 him, to bear witness against5749 him, saying,559 Thou didst blaspheme1288 God430 and the king.4428 And then carry him out,3318 and stone5619 him, that he may die.4191

11  And the men376 of his city,5892 even the elders2205 and the nobles2715 who834 were the inhabitants3427 in his city,5892 did6213 as834 Jezebel348 had sent7971 unto413 them, and as834 it was written3789 in the letters5612 which834 she had sent7971 unto413 them.

12  They proclaimed7121 a fast,6685 and set3427 853 Naboth5022 on high7218 among the people.5971

13  And there came in935 two8147 men,376 children1121 of Belial,1100 and sat3427 before5048 him: and the men376 of Belial1100 witnessed against5749 him, even against 853 Naboth,5022 in the presence5048 of the people,5971 saying,559 Naboth5022 did blaspheme1288 God430 and the king.4428 Then they carried him forth3318 out of4480 2351 the city,5892 and stoned5619 him with stones,68 that he died.4191

14  Then they sent7971 to413 Jezebel,348 saying,559 Naboth5022 is stoned,5619 and is dead.4191

15  And it came to pass,1961 when Jezebel348 heard8085 that3588 Naboth5022 was stoned,5619 and was dead,4191 that Jezebel348 said559 to413 Ahab,256 Arise,6965 take possession3423 of 853 the vineyard3754 of Naboth5022 the Jezreelite,3158 which834 he refused3985 to give5414 thee for money:3701 for3588 Naboth5022 is not369 alive,2416 but3588 dead.4191

16  And it came to pass,1961 when Ahab256 heard8085 that3588 Naboth5022 was dead,4191 that Ahab256 rose up6965 to go down3381 to413 the vineyard3754 of Naboth5022 the Jezreelite,3158 to take possession3423 of it.

17  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 Elijah452 the Tishbite,8664 saying,559

18  Arise,6965 go down3381 to meet7121 Ahab256 king4428 of Israel,3478 which834 is in Samaria:8111 behold,2009 he is in the vineyard3754 of Naboth,5022 whither834 8033 he is gone down3381 to possess3423 it.

19  And thou shalt speak1696 unto413 him, saying,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Hast thou killed,7523 and also1571 taken possession?3423 And thou shalt speak1696 unto413 him, saying,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 In the place4725 where834 dogs3611 licked3952 853 the blood1818 of Naboth5022 shall dogs3611 lick3952 853 thy blood,1818 even1571 thine.859

20  And Ahab256 said559 to413 Elijah,452 Hast thou found4672 me, O mine enemy?341 And he answered,559 I have found4672 thee: because3282 thou hast sold4376 thyself to work6213 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD.3068

21  Behold,2009 I will bring935 evil7451 upon413 thee, and will take away1197 thy posterity,310 and will cut off3772 from Ahab256 him that pisseth8366 against the wall,7023 and him that is shut up6113 and left5800 in Israel,3478

22  And will make5414 853 thine house1004 like the house1004 of Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 and like the house1004 of Baasha1201 the son1121 of Ahijah,281 for413 the provocation3708 wherewith834 thou hast provoked me to anger,3707 and made Israel to sin.2398 853 3478

23  And of Jezebel348 also1571 spoke1696 the LORD,3068 saying,559 The dogs3611 shall eat398 853 Jezebel348 by the wall2426 of Jezreel.3157

24  Him that dieth4191 of Ahab256 in the city5892 the dogs3611 shall eat;398 and him that dieth4191 in the field7704 shall the fowls5775 of the air8064 eat.398

25  But7535 there was1961 none3808 like unto Ahab,256 which834 did sell himself4376 to work6213 wickedness7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 whom834 853 Jezebel348 his wife802 stirred up.5496

26  And he did very3966 abominably8581 in following1980 310 idols,1544 according to all3605 things as834 did6213 the Amorites,567 whom834 the LORD3068 cast out3423 before4480 6440 the children1121 of Israel.3478

27  And it came to pass,1961 when Ahab256 heard8085 853 those428 words,1697 that he rent7167 his clothes,899 and put7760 sackcloth8242 upon5921 his flesh,1320 and fasted,6684 and lay7901 in sackcloth,8242 and went1980 softly.328

28  And the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 to413 Elijah452 the Tishbite,8664 saying,559

29  Seest7200 thou how3588 Ahab256 humbleth himself3665 before4480 6440 me? because3282 3588 he humbleth himself3665 before4480 6440 me, I will not3808 bring935 the evil7451 in his days:3117 but in his son's1121 days3117 will I bring935 the evil7451 upon5921 his house.1004


1 καὶ συνήθροισεν υἱὸς Αδερ πᾶσαν τὴν δύναμιν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀνέβη καὶ περιεκάθισεν ἐπὶ Σαμάρειαν καὶ τριάκοντα καὶ δύο βασιλεῖς μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶς ἵππος καὶ ἅρμα καὶ ἀνέβησαν καὶ περιεκάθισαν ἐπὶ Σαμάρειαν καὶ ἐπολέμησαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτήν

2 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς Αχααβ βασιλέα Ισραηλ εἰς τὴν πόλιν

3 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν τάδε λέγει υἱὸς Αδερ τὸ ἀργύριόν σου καὶ τὸ χρυσίον σου ἐμόν ἐστιν καὶ αἱ γυναῖκές σου καὶ τὰ τέκνα σου ἐμά ἐστιν

4 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν καθὼς ἐλάλησας κύριε βασιλεῦ σὸς ἐγώ εἰμι καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐμά

5 καὶ ἀνέστρεψαν οἱ ἄγγελοι καὶ εἶπον τάδε λέγει υἱὸς Αδερ ἐγὼ ἀπέσταλκα πρὸς σὲ λέγων τὸ ἀργύριόν σου καὶ τὸ χρυσίον σου καὶ τὰς γυναῖκάς σου καὶ τὰ τέκνα σου δώσεις ἐμοί

6 ὅτι ταύτην τὴν ὥραν αὔριον ἀποστελῶ τοὺς παῖδάς μου πρὸς σέ καὶ ἐρευνήσουσιν τὸν οἶκόν σου καὶ τοὺς οἴκους τῶν παίδων σου καὶ ἔσται τὰ ἐπιθυμήματα ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτῶν ἐφ᾽ ἃ ἂν ἐπιβάλωσι τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῶν καὶ λήμψονται

7 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πάντας τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους καὶ εἶπεν γνῶτε δὴ καὶ ἴδετε ὅτι κακίαν οὗτος ζητεῖ ὅτι ἀπέσταλκεν πρός με περὶ τῶν γυναικῶν μου καὶ περὶ τῶν υἱῶν μου καὶ περὶ τῶν θυγατέρων μου τὸ ἀργύριόν μου καὶ τὸ χρυσίον μου οὐκ ἀπεκώλυσα ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ

8 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαός μὴ ἀκούσῃς καὶ μὴ θελήσῃς

9 καὶ εἶπεν τοῖς ἀγγέλοις υἱοῦ Αδερ λέγετε τῷ κυρίῳ ὑμῶν πάντα ὅσα ἀπέσταλκας πρὸς τὸν δοῦλόν σου ἐν πρώτοις ποιήσω τὸ δὲ ῥῆμα τοῦτο οὐ δυνήσομαι ποιῆσαι καὶ ἀπῆραν οἱ ἄνδρες καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν αὐτῷ λόγον

10 καὶ ἀνταπέστειλεν πρὸς αὐτὸν υἱὸς Αδερ λέγων τάδε ποιήσαι μοι ὁ θεὸς καὶ τάδε προσθείη εἰ ἐκποιήσει ὁ χοῦς Σαμαρείας ταῖς ἀλώπεξιν παντὶ τῷ λαῷ τοῖς πεζοῖς μου

11 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν ἱκανούσθω μὴ καυχάσθω ὁ κυρτὸς ὡς ὁ ὀρθός

12 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε ἀπεκρίθη αὐτῷ τὸν λόγον τοῦτον πίνων ἦν αὐτὸς καὶ πάντες οἱ βασιλεῖς μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐν σκηναῖς καὶ εἶπεν τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ οἰκοδομήσατε χάρακα καὶ ἔθεντο χάρακα ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν

13 καὶ ἰδοὺ προφήτης εἷς προσῆλθεν τῷ βασιλεῖ Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν τάδε λέγει κύριος εἰ ἑόρακας πάντα τὸν ὄχλον τὸν μέγαν τοῦτον ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ δίδωμι αὐτὸν σήμερον εἰς χεῖρας σάς καὶ γνώσῃ ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος

14 καὶ εἶπεν Αχααβ ἐν τίνι καὶ εἶπεν τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐν τοῖς παιδαρίοις τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν χωρῶν καὶ εἶπεν Αχααβ τίς συνάψει τὸν πόλεμον καὶ εἶπεν σύ

15 καὶ ἐπεσκέψατο Αχααβ τὰ παιδάρια τῶν ἀρχόντων τῶν χωρῶν καὶ ἐγένοντο διακόσιοι καὶ τριάκοντα καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐπεσκέψατο τὸν λαόν πᾶν υἱὸν δυνάμεως ἑξήκοντα χιλιάδας

16 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν μεσημβρίας καὶ υἱὸς Αδερ πίνων μεθύων ἐν Σοκχωθ αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς τριάκοντα καὶ δύο βασιλεῖς συμβοηθοὶ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

17 καὶ ἐξῆλθον παιδάρια ἀρχόντων τῶν χωρῶν ἐν πρώτοις καὶ ἀποστέλλουσιν καὶ ἀπαγγέλλουσιν τῷ βασιλεῖ Συρίας λέγοντες ἄνδρες ἐξεληλύθασιν ἐκ Σαμαρείας

18 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς εἰ εἰς εἰρήνην οὗτοι ἐκπορεύονται συλλάβετε αὐτοὺς ζῶντας καὶ εἰ εἰς πόλεμον ζῶντας συλλάβετε αὐτούς

19 καὶ μὴ ἐξελθάτωσαν ἐκ τῆς πόλεως τὰ παιδάρια ἀρχόντων τῶν χωρῶν καὶ ἡ δύναμις ὀπίσω αὐτῶν

20 ἐπάταξεν ἕκαστος τὸν παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐδευτέρωσεν ἕκαστος τὸν παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔφυγεν Συρία καὶ κατεδίωξεν αὐτοὺς Ισραηλ καὶ σῴζεται υἱὸς Αδερ βασιλεὺς Συρίας ἐφ᾽ ἵππου ἱππέως

21 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ ἔλαβεν πάντας τοὺς ἵππους καὶ τὰ ἅρματα καὶ ἐπάταξεν πληγὴν μεγάλην ἐν Συρίᾳ

22 καὶ προσῆλθεν ὁ προφήτης πρὸς βασιλέα Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν κραταιοῦ καὶ γνῶθι καὶ ἰδὲ τί ποιήσεις ὅτι ἐπιστρέφοντος τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ υἱὸς Αδερ βασιλεὺς Συρίας ἀναβαίνει ἐπὶ σέ

23 καὶ οἱ παῖδες βασιλέως Συρίας εἶπον θεὸς ὀρέων θεὸς Ισραηλ καὶ οὐ θεὸς κοιλάδων διὰ τοῦτο ἐκραταίωσεν ὑπὲρ ἡμᾶς ἐὰν δὲ πολεμήσωμεν αὐτοὺς κατ᾽ εὐθύ εἰ μὴ κραταιώσομεν ὑπὲρ αὐτούς

24 καὶ τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ποίησον ἀπόστησον τοὺς βασιλεῖς ἕκαστον εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν καὶ θοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτῶν σατράπας

25 καὶ ἀλλάξομέν σοι δύναμιν κατὰ τὴν δύναμιν τὴν πεσοῦσαν ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἵππον κατὰ τὴν ἵππον καὶ ἅρματα κατὰ τὰ ἅρματα καὶ πολεμήσομεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς κατ᾽ εὐθὺ καὶ κραταιώσομεν ὑπὲρ αὐτούς καὶ ἤκουσεν τῆς φωνῆς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐποίησεν οὕτως

26 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐπιστρέψαντος τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ καὶ ἐπεσκέψατο υἱὸς Αδερ τὴν Συρίαν καὶ ἀνέβη εἰς Αφεκα εἰς πόλεμον ἐπὶ Ισραηλ

27 καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐπεσκέπησαν καὶ παρεγένοντο εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτῶν καὶ παρενέβαλεν Ισραηλ ἐξ ἐναντίας αὐτῶν ὡσεὶ δύο ποίμνια αἰγῶν καὶ Συρία ἔπλησεν τὴν γῆν

28 καὶ προσῆλθεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εἶπεν τῷ βασιλεῖ Ισραηλ τάδε λέγει κύριος ἀνθ᾽ ὧν εἶπεν Συρία θεὸς ὀρέων κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ καὶ οὐ θεὸς κοιλάδων αὐτός καὶ δώσω τὴν δύναμιν τὴν μεγάλην ταύτην εἰς χεῖρα σήν καὶ γνώσῃ ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος

29 καὶ παρεμβάλλουσιν οὗτοι ἀπέναντι τούτων ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ καὶ προσήγαγεν ὁ πόλεμος καὶ ἐπάταξεν Ισραηλ τὴν Συρίαν ἑκατὸν χιλιάδας πεζῶν μιᾷ ἡμέρᾳ

30 καὶ ἔφυγον οἱ κατάλοιποι εἰς Αφεκα εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ ἔπεσεν τὸ τεῖχος ἐπὶ εἴκοσι καὶ ἑπτὰ χιλιάδας ἀνδρῶν τῶν καταλοίπων καὶ υἱὸς Αδερ ἔφυγεν καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ κοιτῶνος εἰς τὸ ταμίειον

31 καὶ εἶπεν τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ οἶδα ὅτι βασιλεῖς Ισραηλ βασιλεῖς ἐλέους εἰσίν ἐπιθώμεθα δὴ σάκκους ἐπὶ τὰς ὀσφύας ἡμῶν καὶ σχοινία ἐπὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς ἡμῶν καὶ ἐξέλθωμεν πρὸς βασιλέα Ισραηλ εἴ πως ζωογονήσει τὰς ψυχὰς ἡμῶν

32 καὶ περιεζώσαντο σάκκους ἐπὶ τὰς ὀσφύας αὐτῶν καὶ ἔθεσαν σχοινία ἐπὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς αὐτῶν καὶ εἶπον τῷ βασιλεῖ Ισραηλ δοῦλός σου υἱὸς Αδερ λέγει ζησάτω δὴ ἡ ψυχή μου καὶ εἶπεν εἰ ἔτι ζῇ ἀδελφός μού ἐστιν

33 καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἰωνίσαντο καὶ ἔσπευσαν καὶ ἀνέλεξαν τὸν λόγον ἐκ τοῦ στόματος αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπον ἀδελφός σου υἱὸς Αδερ καὶ εἶπεν εἰσέλθατε καὶ λάβετε αὐτόν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτὸν υἱὸς Αδερ καὶ ἀναβιβάζουσιν αὐτὸν πρὸς αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὸ ἅρμα

34 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν τὰς πόλεις ἃς ἔλαβεν ὁ πατήρ μου παρὰ τοῦ πατρός σου ἀποδώσω σοι καὶ ἐξόδους θήσεις σαυτῷ ἐν Δαμασκῷ καθὼς ἔθετο ὁ πατήρ μου ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ καὶ ἐγὼ ἐν διαθήκῃ ἐξαποστελῶ σε καὶ διέθετο αὐτῷ διαθήκην καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν αὐτόν

35 καὶ ἄνθρωπος εἷς ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν τῶν προφητῶν εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἐν λόγῳ κυρίου πάταξον δή με καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος πατάξαι αὐτόν

36 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν ἀνθ᾽ ὧν οὐκ ἤκουσας τῆς φωνῆς κυρίου ἰδοὺ σὺ ἀποτρέχεις ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ πατάξει σε λέων καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ εὑρίσκει αὐτὸν λέων καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτόν

37 καὶ εὑρίσκει ἄνθρωπον ἄλλον καὶ εἶπεν πάταξόν με δή καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν ὁ ἄνθρωπος πατάξας καὶ συνέτριψεν

38 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὁ προφήτης καὶ ἔστη τῷ βασιλεῖ Ισραηλ ἐπὶ τῆς ὁδοῦ καὶ κατεδήσατο τελαμῶνι τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ

39 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ὁ βασιλεὺς παρεπορεύετο καὶ οὗτος ἐβόα πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα καὶ εἶπεν ὁ δοῦλός σου ἐξῆλθεν ἐπὶ τὴν στρατιὰν τοῦ πολέμου καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ εἰσήγαγεν πρός με ἄνδρα καὶ εἶπεν πρός με φύλαξον τοῦτον τὸν ἄνδρα ἐὰν δὲ ἐκπηδῶν ἐκπηδήσῃ καὶ ἔσται ἡ ψυχή σου ἀντὶ τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ ἢ τάλαντον ἀργυρίου στήσεις

40 καὶ ἐγενήθη περιεβλέψατο ὁ δοῦλός σου ὧδε καὶ ὧδε καὶ οὗτος οὐκ ἦν καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ἰδοὺ καὶ τὰ ἔνεδρα παρ᾽ ἐμοὶ ἐφόνευσας

41 καὶ ἔσπευσεν καὶ ἀφεῖλεν τὸν τελαμῶνα ἀπὸ τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέγνω αὐτὸν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ὅτι ἐκ τῶν προφητῶν οὗτος

42 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν τάδε λέγει κύριος διότι ἐξήνεγκας σὺ ἄνδρα ὀλέθριον ἐκ χειρός σου καὶ ἔσται ἡ ψυχή σου ἀντὶ τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ λαός σου ἀντὶ τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ

43 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ συγκεχυμένος καὶ ἐκλελυμένος καὶ ἔρχεται εἰς Σαμάρειαν

1 Post verba autem hæc, tempore illo vinea erat Naboth Jezrahelitæ, quæ erat in Jezrahel, juxta palatium Achab regis Samariæ.

2 Locutus est ergo Achab ad Naboth, dicens: Da mihi vineam tuam, ut faciam mihi hortum olerum, quia vicina est, et prope domum meam: daboque tibi pro ea vineam meliorem, aut si commodius tibi putas, argenti pretium, quanto digna est.

3 Cui respondit Naboth: Propitius sit mihi Dominus, ne dem hæreditatem patrum meorum tibi.

4 Venit ergo Achab in domum suam indignans, et frendens super verbo quod locutus fuerat ad eum Naboth Jezrahelites, dicens: Non dabo tibi hæreditatem patrum meorum. Et projiciens se in lectulum suum, avertit faciem suam ad parietem, et non comedit panem.

5 Ingressa est autem ad eum Jezabel uxor sua, dixitque ei: Quid est hoc, unde anima tua contristata est? et quare non comedis panem?

6 Qui respondit ei: Locutus sum Naboth Jezrahelitæ, et dixi ei: Da mihi vineam tuam, accepta pecunia: aut, si tibi placet, dabo tibi vineam meliorem pro ea. Et ille ait: Non dabo tibi vineam meam.

7 Dixit ergo ad eum Jezabel uxor ejus: Grandis auctoritatis es, et bene regis regnum Israël. Surge, et comede panem, et æquo animo esto: ego dabo tibi vineam Naboth Jezrahelitæ.

8 Scripsit itaque litteras ex nomine Achab, et signavit eas annulo ejus, et misit ad majores natu, et optimates, qui erant in civitate ejus, et habitabant cum Naboth.

9 Litterarum autem hæc erat sententia: Prædicate jejunium, et sedere facite Naboth inter primos populi:

10 et submittite duos viros filios Belial contra eum, et falsum testimonium dicant: Benedixit Deum et regem: et educite eum, et lapidate, sicque moriatur.

11 Fecerunt ergo cives ejus majores natu et optimates, qui habitabant cum eo in urbe, sicut præceperat eis Jezabel, et sicut scriptum erat in litteris quas miserat ad eos:

12 prædicaverunt jejunium, et sedere fecerunt Naboth inter primos populi.

13 Et adductis duobus viris filiis diaboli, fecerunt eos sedere contra eum: at illi, scilicet ut viri diabolici, dixerunt contra eum testimonium coram multitudine: Benedixit Naboth Deum et regem: quam ob rem eduxerunt eum extra civitatem, et lapidibus interfecerunt.

14 Miseruntque ad Jezabel, dicentes: Lapidatus est Naboth, et mortuus est.

15 Factum est autem, cum audisset Jezabel lapidatum Naboth et mortuum, locuta est ad Achab: Surge, et posside vineam Naboth Jezrahelitæ, qui noluit tibi acquiescere, et dare eam accepta pecunia: non enim vivit Naboth, sed mortuus est.

16 Quod cum audisset Achab, mortuum videlicet Naboth, surrexit, et descendebat in vineam Naboth Jezrahelitæ, ut possideret eam.

17 Factum est igitur sermo Domini ad Eliam Thesbiten, dicens:

18 Surge, et descende in occursum Achab regis Israël, qui est in Samaria: ecce ad vineam Naboth descendit, ut possideat eam.

19 Et loqueris ad eum, dicens: Hæc dicit Dominus: Occidisti, insuper et possedisti. Et post hæc addes: Hæc dicit Dominus: In loco hoc, in quo linxerunt canes sanguinem Naboth, lambent quoque sanguinem tuum.

20 Et ait Achab ad Eliam: Num invenisti me inimicum tibi? Qui dixit: Inveni, eo quod venundatus sis, ut faceres malum in conspectu Domini.

21 Ecce ego inducam super te malum, et demetam posteriora tua, et interficiam de Achab mingentem ad parietem, et clausum et ultimum in Israël.

22 Et dabo domum tuam sicut domum Jeroboam filii Nabat, et sicut domum Baasa filii Ahia: quia egisti ut me ad iracundiam provocares, et peccare fecisti Israël.

23 Sed et de Jezabel locutus est Dominus, dicens: Canes comedent Jezabel in agro Jezrahel.

24 Si mortuus fuerit Achab in civitate, comedent eum canes: si autem mortuus fuerit in agro, comedent eum volucres cæli.

25 Igitur non fuit alter talis sicut Achab, qui venundatus est ut faceret malum in conspectu Domini: concitavit enim eum Jezabel uxor sua,

26 et abominabilis factus est, in tantum ut sequeretur idola quæ fecerant Amorrhæi, quos consumpsit Dominus a facie filiorum Israël.

27 Itaque cum audisset Achab sermones istos, scidit vestimenta sua, et operuit cilicio carnem suam, jejunavitque et dormivit in sacco, et ambulavit demisso capite.

28 Et factus est sermo Domini ad Eliam Thesbiten, dicens:

29 Nonne vidisti humiliatum Achab coram me? quia igitur humiliatus est mei causa, non inducam malum in diebus ejus, sed in diebus filii sui inferam malum domui ejus.
