An Israelite at Jezreel, who declined selling his ancestral vineyard to Ahab, Leviticus 25:23,24; and was in consequence murdered, on a false charge of blasphemy contrived by Jezebel the queen. Ahab took immediate possession of the coveted vineyardperhaps as being legally for forfeited to the government, construing blasphemy as treason; or it may be, that the heirs were deterred from asserting their claim by a dread of the unscrupulous arts of Jezebel. Elijah, however, did not fear to denounce against the king and queen the vengeance of One "higher than they," 1 Kings 21:1-29 2 Kings 9:24-26,36 Ecclesiastes 5:8 .
