Tag Archive: Ahab

Read: 2 Kings 8:7-15, 8:23-24, 8:27, 8:29,  2 Chronicles 21:19-20, 2 Kings 9, 2 Kings 10:1-17, 2 Chronicles 22:1-9

It’s so funny how people think the Bible is a boring old book of rules when it’s a very interesting (and sometimes disgusting) book of people and situations just like us.

Ok, so some of the following situations I can safely say have never happened to me…but the Bible is chock full of what I would call crazy boy stories.  You know, the stories that are gross…the type boys would especially love to read and learn about.

EHUD  (Judges 3:12-30)


“Ehud stretched out his left hand, took the sword from his right thigh and thrust it into his belly. The handle also went in after the blade, and the fat closed over the blade, for he did not draw the sword out of his belly; and the refuse came out.”   Judges 3:21-22

JAEL  (Judges 4)


“But Jael, Heber’s wife, took a tent peg and seized a hammer in her hand, and went secretly to him and drove the peg into his temple, and it went through into the ground; for he was sound asleep and exhausted. So he died.”   Judges 4:21

ELISHA  (2 Kings 2:15-25)


Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, ‘Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!’ When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.”   2 Kings 2:23-24

And then, of course, from today’s reading…

JEHORAM  (2 Chronicles 21)


“After all this, the Lord afflicted Jehoram with an incurable disease of the bowels. In the course of time, at the end of the second year, his bowels came out because of the disease, and he died in great pain.”   2 Chronicles 21:18-19

JEZEBEL  (2 Kings 9:30-37)


“’Throw her down!’ Jehu said. So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered the wall and the horses as they trampled her underfoot. But when they went out to bury her, they found nothing except her skull, her feet and her hands.”   2 Kings 9:33 & 35

AHAB  (2 Kings 10:1-17)


“When the letter arrived, these men took the princes and slaughtered all seventy of them. They put their heads in baskets and sent them to Jehu in Jezreel. When the messenger arrived, he told Jehu, ‘They have brought the heads of the princes.’  Then Jehu ordered, ‘Put them in two piles at the entrance of the city gate until morning.’”   2 Kings 10:7-8

“King Jehoshaphat of Judah is also rebuked for joining in alliance with his northern brethren.  Apparently the lesson to be learned is that God demands strict obedience even when certain acts seem entirely appropriate — perhaps even righteous — according to human notions.  But God also shows his readiness to forgive a penitent King Ahab.”

Read:1 Kings 22:29-40, 22:48-49, 22:52-53, 2 Chronicles 18:28-34, 2 Chronicles 19, 2 Chronicles 20, 2 Kings 1, 2 Kings 3:1-3

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.”
