    King James Bible - 1 Kings 21:4

    And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.

    World English Bible

    Ahab came into his house sullen and angry because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him; for he had said, "I will not give you the inheritance of my fathers." He laid himself down on his
    bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.

    Douay-Rheims - 1 Kings 21:4

    And Achab came into his house angry and fretting, because of the word that Naboth the Jezrahelite had spoken to him, saying: I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And casting himself upon his
    bed, he turned away his face to the wall, and would eat no bread.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And Ahab came into his house
    heavy and displeased, because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid himself down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:4

    Y vino Acab a su casa triste y enojado, por la palabra que Nabot de Jezreel le había respondido, diciendo: No te daré la heredad de mis padres. Y se acostó en su cama, y volvió su rostro, y no comió pan.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 21:4

    Verse 4. He laid him down upon his
    bed] Poor soul! he was lord over ten-twelfths of the land, and became miserable because he could not get a poor man's vineyard added to all that he possessed! It is a true saying, "That soul in which God dwells not, has no happiness: and he who has God has a satisfying portion." Every privation and cross makes an unholy soul unhappy; and privations and crosses it must ever meet with, therefore:- "Where'er it goes is hell; itself is hell!"

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. And
    Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased , etc.] Just in the same humour he was after the prophet had delivered his message to him, ( 1 Kings 20:43), where the same words are used as here: because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him, for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers , neither by way of exchange nor of purchase: and such a denial he could not bear, since it looked like treating him with contempt, and taxing him with imprudence at least, if not with injustice, or both: and he laid him down upon his bed ; or couch, which might be not in his bedchamber, but in one of his halls, where his courtiers were: and turned away his face ; to the wall, not choosing to have conversation with any of his nobles: and would eat no bread ; the vexation took away his stomach, and he became melancholy, at least sullen. Ver. 5 . But Jezebel his wife came unto him, and said, why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread ?] She perceived he was low spirited, and supposed he had met with something that had ruffled him, and made him so uneasy that he could not eat his food; and she desired to know what it was, that she might relieve him if possible.

    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.
