1)When came to be many,
the world once again was filled with .
At last God called to God told him that if he would GO to a land that God told him about, that God would give that land to Abram and his children and that his children would number more than the stars in the sky.
So Abram obeyed by taking his wife, Sarai, and all his cattle and all his servants and WENT. His brother’s son, and all his family went, also.
They lived in
Finally Abram came to a beautiful land and God told him that that land would belong to him someday and his children. But Abram had no children; and he and Sarai were very old.
Abram built altars to the Lord and this is the first that we read of anyone ‘calling’ on the name of the Lord.
1 Kings 21 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Jezebel Has Naboth Killed
Naboth owned a vineyard in Jezreel near King Ahab’s palace.
One day, Ahab said, “Naboth, your vineyard is near my palace. Give it to me so I can turn it into a vegetable garden. I’ll give you a better vineyard or pay whatever you want for yours.”
Naboth answered, “This vineyard has always been in my family. I won’t let you have it.”
So Ahab went home, angry and depressed because of what Naboth had told him. He lay on his bed, just staring at the wall and refusing to eat a thing.
Jezebel his wife came in and asked, “What’s wrong? Why won’t you eat?”
“I asked Naboth to sell me his vineyard or to let me give him a better one,” Ahab replied. “And he told me I couldn’t have it.”
“Aren’t you the king of Israel?” Jezebel asked. “Get out of bed and eat something! Don’t worry, I’ll get Naboth’s vineyard for you.”
Jezebel wrote a letter to each of the leaders of the town where Naboth lived. In the letters she said:
She signed Ahab’s name to the letters and sealed them with his seal. Then she sent them to the town leaders.
After receiving her letters, they did exactly what she had asked. They told the people that it was a day to go without eating, and when they all came together, they seated Naboth at the front. The two liars came in and sat across from Naboth. Then they accused him of cursing God and the king, so the people dragged Naboth outside and stoned him to death.
The leaders of Jezreel sent a message back to Jezebel that said, “Naboth is dead.”
As soon as Jezebel got their message, she told Ahab, “Now you can have the vineyard Naboth refused to sell. He’s dead.” Ahab got up and went to take over the vineyard.
Elijah Condemns Ahab
The LORD said to Elijah the prophet,
“King Ahab of Israel is in Naboth’s vineyard right now, taking it over. Go tell him that I say, ‘Ahab, you murdered Naboth and took his property. And so, in the very spot where dogs licked up Naboth’s blood, they will lick up your blood.’”
When Elijah found him, Ahab said, “So, my enemy, you found me at last.”
When Ahab heard this, he tore his clothes and wore sackcloth day and night. He was depressed and refused to eat.
Some time later, the LORD said, “Elijah, do you see how sorry Ahab is for what he did? I won’t punish his family while he is still alive. I’ll wait until his son is king.”
No one was more determined than Ahab to disobey the LORD. And Jezebel encouraged him. Worst of all, he had worshiped idols, just as the Amorites had done before the
LORD forced them out of the land and gave it to Israel.
