Jezebel’s Greed – Deadly Sin #5

Deadly Sinner #5 : Jezebel (by proxy of her husband King Ahab)

In 1 Kings 21, Ahab asks Naboth to give him his vineyard to add to the palace grounds but Naboth refuses him. When Jezebel finds out, she falsely accuses Naboth of blasphemy so he can be sentenced to death. She then seizes his land to add to land that she and her husband already clearly have enough of hence the keys that she grabs in this image of her.

2 Kings 9:30-37 New King James Version

So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses; and he trampled her underfoot. 34 And when he had gone in, he ate and drank. Then he said, “Go now, see to this accursed woman, and bury her, for she was a king’s daughter.” 35 So they went to bury her, but they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands. 36 Therefore they came back and told him. And he said, “This is the word of the Lord, which He spoke by His servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, ‘On the plot of ground at Jezreel dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel;[a] 37 and the corpse of Jezebel shall be as refuse on the surface of the field, in the plot at Jezreel, so that they shall not say, “Here lies Jezebel.”’”
