Naboth (nâ'bŏth), fruits. An Israelite of Jezreel who owned a vineyard adjoining the palace of king Ahab. 1 Kings 21:1. Anxious to secure this spot to use it for a garden, the king proposed to buy it; but Naboth declined to sell. So Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, made a wicked plan to have Naboth condemned to death on a fake charge of blasphemy, and thus allow the king to seize upon the vineyard. The murder was avenged by the doom immediately passed upon Ahab and Jezebel, the royal murderers. 1 Kings 21:19.
