1 Kings 16:31-34 Expanded Bible (EXB)

31 He ·sinned in the same ways as [L walked in the ways/paths of] Jeroboam son of Nebat, ·but he did even worse things [L as though it were a light/trivial thing]. He married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal, the king of Sidon. Then Ahab began to serve Baal and worship him. 32 He built a ·temple [L house] in Samaria for worshiping Baal and put an altar there for Baal. 33 Ahab also ·made an idol for worshiping Asherah [set up an Asherah pole; 14:15]. He did more things to ·provoke [arouse] the Lord, the God of Israel, to anger than all the other kings before him.

34 During the time of Ahab, Hiel from Bethel rebuilt the city of Jericho. ·It cost Hiel the life of Abiram, his oldest son, to begin work on the city [L With Abiram, his firstborn, he laid its foundation], and ·it cost the life of Segub, his youngest son, to build [L with Segub, his youngest, he set up] the city gates. This happened ·just as the Lord, speaking [L according to the word of the Lord spoken] ·through [L by the hand of] Joshua son of Nun [Josh. 6:26].
