Stealing Land

Isaiah says woe to those who steal the land of others. The number points at the classic story of this behavior in First Kings.

Isaiah 5:8-10

Woe 1|6 8Woe to those who trespass the boundaries between houses, who remove the landmarks between the fields to steal the land that they may live alone in the middle of the land. Isaiah 5:89In my ears, said the Master of hosts: of a truth it has been heard that many houses will be desolate, because there will not be anyone to live in them. 10For 10 acres of vineyard will yield but 1 bath and a homer of seed will yield but an ephah. Isaiah 5:9-10 (Isaiah 5:8-10 BRB)

First Kings

1It came to pass after these things that Naboth L Jeremiah 1:5 the Jezreelite had a vineyard in Jezreel on the side of the temple of Ahab king of Samaria. A 1 Corinthians 9:7 2Ahab spoke to Naboth saying, Give me your vineyard that I may have it for an herb garden, because it is near to my house, and I will give you for it a better vineyard than it, or if it seems good to you, I will give you its worth in silver. 1 Kings 21:1-23Naboth said to Ahab, The Master forbids that I should give you the inheritance of my fathers. A Hebrews 12:16 1 Kings 21:34Ahab went to his house sad and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him FE for he had said, I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers. He laid down on his bed and turned his face away and would not eat food. 1 Kings 21:45Jezebel his wife came to him and said to him, Why is your spirit so sad that you refuse to eat food? 1 Kings 21:56He said to her, Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite and said to him, Give me your vineyard for silver or else if it please you I will give you another vineyard for it better than it, but he answered, I will not give you my vineyard. 1 Kings 21:67Jezebel his wife FE said to him, Are you really king over Israel? Arise and eat bread and let your heart be merry. I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite. 1 Kings 21:78She wrote a letter in the name of Ahab and sealed it with his ring and sent the letter to the elders and nobles who lived in the city with Naboth. I Isaiah 10:1-2 9She wrote in the letter saying: 1 Kings 21:8-9Proclaim a fast and set Naboth on high among the people. 10Bring 2 wicked men and set them opposite him and let them testify against him saying, Naboth has reviled god and the king. Q Exodus 22:28 Then take him out and stone him that he may die. Q Leviticus 24:16 1 Kings 21:9-1011The men of his city, the elders and nobles who lived in the city with Naboth, did as Jezebel had sent to them and as it was written in the letter which she had sent to them. 12They proclaimed a fast and set Naboth on high among the people. 13They brought 2 wicked men and seated them opposite him and the wicked men witnessed against Naboth saying, Naboth reviled god and the king. Then they took him outside the city and stoned him so that he died. M Acts 6:11 A Jacob 5:6 1 Kings 21:11-1314They sent to Jezebel saying, Naboth has been stoned and is dead. 1 Kings 21:14FE 15When Jezebel heard that Naboth was dead Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, inherit the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite which he refused to give you for silver, for Naboth is not alive but dead. A Micah 4:4 16When Ahab heard that Naboth was dead Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite to inherit it. 1 Kings 21:15-1617The word of the Master was on Elijah who was from Tishbe saying, 18Arise. Go down to meet Ahab king of Israel in Samaria. He is in the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, for he has gone there to inherit it. 19You will say to him, The Master says, You have killed and you have also inherited. A Jeremiah 2:34 A Matthew 21:38 A Mark 12:7 A Luke 20:14 The Master says, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth dogs will also lick your blood. H 1 Kings 22:38 1 Kings 21:17-19FE 20Ahab said to Elijah, Have you found me my enemy? 1 Kings 21:20He answered, I have found you because you have exalted yourself to do evil before the Master. 21I will bring evil on you and will pluck your posterity and will cut off from Ahab every male child and everyone who has authority in governing Israel. 22I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam son of Nebat and like the house of Baasha son of Ahijah for the provocation with which you have provoked me to anger and made Israel to sin. 1 Kings 21:20-2223Of Jezebel the Master also spoke saying, The dogs will eat Jezebel by the wall which is in Jezreel. Q 2 Kings 9:36 1 Kings 21:23FE 24Anyone belonging to Ahab who dies in the city the dogs will eat and anyone who dies in the field the birds of the air will eat. 1 Kings 21:24 (1 Kings 21:1-24 BRB)
