From 1Kings chapter 22:
20 And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.
21 And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him.
22 And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.
34 And a certain man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: wherefore he said unto the driver of his chariot, Turn thine hand, and carry me out of the host; for I am wounded.
35 And the battle increased that day: and the king was stayed up in his chariot against the Syrians, and died at even: and the blood ran out of the wound into the midst of the chariot.
40 So Ahab slept with his fathers; and Ahaziah his son reigned in his stead.
I once wrote lyrics to a song titled 'Ahab' :
7th king of Israel, Lord told Micaiah you would fail
Micaiah came and told you so, but you never listened, Devil's drawn his bow
Satan's arrow has piereced you, now you're dead what can you do
You believed in a lie
You surely died
Don't believe in lie you'll die shot down by an arrow when you should have chose the narrow
Ahab a wicked king was you, you chose your own path and you never believed the truth
Ahab you wicked king, you surely felt the devil's sting
I never want to be like you, I want to live in light and truth
Arrow drawn in it's simplicity, what does it take to make you see?
Now for your enjoyment (or not!), the only video ever made of the song, Ahab, as performed by S.H.E.EP.
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Will you believe in a lie?
