"1 Kings 21 shows us the depths that Northern Israel had fallen to. Unlike their sister nation of Judah, Northern Israel did not remain loyal to one dynasty or family of kings, they experienced a lot of war and usurper kings. With the stories that we’re told of Israel’s inner workings, it’s really no wonder. Ahab, the current king of Israel, in 1 Kings 21, was acting like a spoiled child. Interested in a vineyard next to the palace, Ahab tried to compel the owner of the land to give it to him. Ahab even offered Naboth a better vineyard or full payment for its worth, but Naboth would not budge. The land belonged to him through the inheritance of his fathers, and he wanted to keep it in the family. With his offers rejected, Ahab went to his room, laid on his bed and refused to eat! When his wife Queen Jezebel saw his emotional state, she took care of the Naboth problem herself.
