Not that I'm defending him, but you can see why Ahab wasn't that keen on Elijah, can't you?


i agree you know. do you think jesus was gangster? i do. mean like he can perform miracles i can't. can you? he died an rose again and then he just started floatin to heaven. can you float into the sky? cause i sure know that i can't.


i dont understand why Ahab would not punish elijah like he did to Naboth and i am not defending him either


God extended His mercy, maybe testing Ahab's repentance.
28 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite: 29 “Have you noticed how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has humbled himself, I will not bring this disaster in his day, but I will bring it on his house in the days of his son.”
