Biblical Example

1 Kings 21:1-6 (WEB)

This biblical example is referring to King Ahab's reign over Israel. King Ahab wanted Naboth's vineyard;  however Naboth did not want to sell or trade it because it was his family's inheritance. So King Ahab's wife, Jezebel, conspired against Naboth and had him put to death so her husband, King Ahab, could take the vineyard. After killing Naboth, YHWH cursed Jezebel with a gruesome death; and King Ahab's sons and all who were close to him were slaughtered according to the curse YHWH put on them through his prophet Elijah. King Ahab and his wife Jezebel did many evil works in the eyes of YHWH.
