SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:1 Â¶ Pasados estos negocios, aconteció que Nabot de Jezreel tenía en Jezreel una viña junto al palacio de Acab rey de Samaria.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 21:1 Verse 1. After these things] This and the twentieth chapter are transposed in the Septuagint; this preceding the account of the Syrian war with Ben-hadad. Josephus gives the history in the same order.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And it came to pass, after these things , etc.] After the two battles with the king of Syria, in which Ahab was victorious, and after he had let Benhadad, a blasphemer, and injurious to him, go free: [that] Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard, which was in Jezreel ; of which place (see Gill on “ Hosea 1:5”) or “who was in Jezreel”; that is Naboth, for the vineyard was in Samaria, ( 1 Kings 21:18) hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria ; that being the metropolis of the kingdom of Israel, is put for it, who, besides his palace in Samaria, had another in Jezreel; which, according to Bunting f443 , were sixteen miles distant from each other.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-4 - Naboth, perhaps, had been pleased that he had a vineyard situated s near the palace, but the situation proved fatal to him; many a man' possessions have been his snare, and his neighbourhood to greatness, or bad consequence. Discontent is a sin that is its own punishment, an makes men torment themselves. It is a sin that is its own parent; it arises not from the condition, but from the mind: as we find Pau contented in a prison, so Ahab was discontented in a palace. He had all the delights of Canaan, that pleasant land, at command; the wealth of kingdom, the pleasures of a court, and the honours and powers of throne; yet all avails him nothing without Naboth's vineyard. Wron desires expose men to continual vexations, and those that are dispose to fret, however well off, may always find something or other to fre at.
