SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:7 Y su mujer Jezabel le dijo: Â¿Eres tú ahora rey sobre Israel? Levántate, y come pan, y alégrate; yo te daré la viña de Nabot de Jezreel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 21:7 Verse 7. Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel?] Naboth, not Ahab, is king. If he have authority to refuse, and thou have no power to take, he is the greater man of the two. This is the vital language of despotism and tyranny.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. And Jezebel his wife said unto him, dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel ? etc.] Art thou not king of Israel? canst thou not do as thou pleasest? hast thou not power to oblige a subject to obey thy commands, and especially in such a trifling matter as parting with a vineyard, and that upon the most reasonable terms? thou hast too much demeaned thyself as a king; thou oughtest to have exerted thy kingly power and authority, and demanded it from him; the Targum is, “thou now shalt prosper in thy kingdom over Israel;” thy reign now is prosperous, and like to continue so, having obtained two such victories over thine enemies, and therefore should not be dejected with such a trifling thing as this: arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry : the kingdom being in such a flourishing state; and let not this affair give thee any trouble or uneasiness; I will take care of that, leave it with me: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite : without paying any money, or giving another vineyard in exchange for it.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 5-16 - When, instead of a help meet, a man has an agent for Satan, in the for of an artful, unprincipled, yet beloved wife, fatal effects may be expected. Never were more wicked orders given by any prince, than thos Jezebel sent to the rulers of Jezreel. Naboth must be murdered unde colour of religion. There is no wickedness so vile, so horrid, but religion has sometimes been made a cover for it. Also, it must be don under colour of justice, and with the formalities of legal process. Le us, from this sad story, be amazed at the wickedness of the wicked, an the power of Satan in the children of disobedience. Let us commit the keeping of our lives and comforts to God, for innocence will not alway be our security; and let us rejoice in the knowledge that all will be set to rights in the great day.
