Ahab & Jezebel

“Two of the most wicked people who ever lived just happen to be married to each other — King Ahab of Israel, already described as the most evil king to rule Israel, and his wife, Jezebel, whose name even centuries later will be used to describe a treacherous woman.  Ahab, however, is now seen in one of his best lights, as Israel is attacked by the Syrians of Aram.  In an effort to get Ahab’s attention, God gives him the victory, only to rebuke him for what is an uncharacteristically merciful act on Ahab’s part.”
