Naboth [Nā'bŏth]—prominence. A Jezreelite of the tribe of Issachar, whom Jezebel, wife of Ahab, caused to be put to death to obtain his vineyard adjoining the palace (1 Kings 21; 2 Kings 9:21-26). For this dastardly act doom was pronounced upon Ahab and his house by Elijah. “The murder of Naboth seems to have deeply impressed the popular mind,” comments W. F. Boyd, “and the deaths of Joram and Jezebel near the spot were regarded as Divine retribution on the act.”
