    King James Bible - 1 Kings 16:31

    And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.

    World English Bible

    It happened, as if it had been a
    light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshiped him.

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Kings 16:31

    Nor was it enough for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nabat: but he also took to wife Jezabel daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians. And he went, and served Baal, and adored him.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And it came to pass, as if it had been a
    light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshiped him.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:31

    porque le fue ligera cosa andar en los pecados de Jeroboam hijo de Nabat, y tomó por mujer a Jezabel hija de Et-baal rey de los sidonios, y fue y sirvió a Baal, y lo adoró.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 16:31

    Verse 31. He took to
    wife Jezebel] This was the head and chief of his offending; he took to wife, not only a heathen, but one whose hostility to the true religion was well known, and carried to the utmost extent. 1. She was the idolatrous daughter of an idolatrous king; 2. She practiced it openly; 3. She not only countenanced it in others, but protected it, and gave its partisans honours and rewards; 4. She used every means to persecute the true religion; 5. She was hideously cruel, and put to death the prophets and priests of God; 6. And all this she did with the most zealous perseverance and relentless cruelty.

    Notwithstanding Ahab had built a temple, and made an altar for Baal, and set up the worship of Asherah, the Sidonian Venus, which we, ver. 33, have transformed into a grove; yet so well known was the hostility of Jezebel to all good, that his marrying her was esteemed the highest pitch of vice, and an act the most provoking to God, and destructive to the prosperity of the kingdom.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 31. And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sin of Jeroboam the son of Nebat , etc.] To worship the golden calves he set up: that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians ; who is called Ithobalus and Itobalus king of the Tyrians, by Heathen historians f356 ; and, by Theophilus of Antioch f357 , Juthobalus, priest of Astarte; for Tyre and Zidon were under one king. This woman was not only of another nation, and an idolater, but a very filthy woman, and is made the emblem of the whore of Rome, ( Revelation 2:20) and went and served Baal, and worshipped him that is, went to Zidon and Tyre, and worshipped his wife’s gods, which were either Jupiter Thalassius, the god of the Zidoaians, or Hercules, whom the Tyrians worshipped.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 29-34 -
    Ahab did evil above all that reigned before him, and did it with particular enmity both against Jehovah and Israel. He was not satisfie with breaking the second commandment by image-worship, he broke the first by worshipping other gods: making light of lesser sins makes wa for greater. Marriages with daring offenders also imbolden in wickedness, and hurry men on to the greatest excesses. One of Ahab' subjects, following the example of his presumption, ventured to buil Jericho. Like Achan, he meddled with the accursed thing; turned that to his own use, which was devoted to God's honour: he began to build, in defiance of the curse well devoted to God's honour: he began to build in defiance of the curse well known in Israel; but none ever hardene his heart against God, and prospered. Let the reading of this chapte cause us to mark the dreadful end of all the workers of iniquity. An what does the history of all ungodly men furnish, what ever rank of situation they move in, but sad examples of the same __________________________________________________________________
