Near him lived a man by the name of Naboth, who had a vineyard.
Men say they envy your inheritance And look upon your vineyards with fierce eyes As Ahab looked on Naboth's goodly field.
In a famous homily from this period, St Ambrose of Milan, reflecting on the Old Testament story of Naboth's vineyard, decries elites for making "every effort to drive the poor person out from his little plot and turn the needy out from the boundaries of his ancestral fields." Likewise, the French social historian Marc Ferro has demonstrated that many urban Russians were driven to the Bolsheviks in 1917 not out of ideological zeal, but because the old regime and the new constitutional parties had proved incapable of providing food and housing.
Some of the residents who spoke told newsmen that they have been forced to stay without food because they no longer have farmlands to cultivate their crops as narrated by Ladi Naboth who lamented bitterly as she spoke with newsmen that: 'we are in the village and not the city and they know our major occupation is farming, we cannot eat if we don't farm our food.'
(4.) It reports that the first recorded condemnation action occurred in 871 BC, when a condemnor, King Ahab, attempted to acquire Naboth's vineyard.
There are phony allegations against Munhamo's husband and his family in the same manner that through Jezebel's influence a false indictment is brought against Naboth. Both Shizha and all men of his family as well as the biblical Naboth are exterminated for Munhamo, and Naboth for his vineyard.
The pope's homily focused on the day's first reading in which Jezebel succeeds in her a plot to help her husband, King Ahab, take possession of their neighbor's land; the neighbor, Naboth, refused to sell what had belonged to his family for generations.
Highlighting a report by Israeli NGO Kerem Navot (Naboth's Vineyard), al-Quds said that a former chief Israeli military prosecutor lives in an unlicensed home built on privately-owned Palestinian land in the West Bank.
