Naboth had a vineyard that Ahab wanted and Ahab offered to buy the vineyard from Naboth but Naboth refused, so Jezebel devised a plan on how to get it by having Naboth stoned to death for supposedly going against God and the king. Ahab was about to go to battle with some other people but had a prophet first predict what would happen. The prophet predicted that the battle would be lost and just as had been prophesied Ahab was shot by an arrow and killed and all of his people returned to their own lands in flight. There was another good king named Jehosaphat, which was a novelty because good kings were rare and far between, and he sent ships to get him supplies. There was another bad king, who reigned for only two years, and that concludes 1 Kings, so I will continue with 2 Kings tomorrow.
