August 25, 1 Kings 22:29-40 Death of Ahab
There's a certain level of humor and stupidity in this story. First Ahab decides that since God has prophecied his eath, he'll disquise himself. That's stupid, you can't hide from God. The humor is in how Ahab dresses as a comon soldier yet Jehoshaphat dresses as king. I wonder why Jehoshaphat agreed to this, perhaps he was certain as the prophet did not foretell his death. The text reads that an archer simpy drew back a bow and this chance arrow found just the right place to split Ahab's armor, right! So ahab dies and they take his chariot back to Samaria to wash it. The text reads strange in one point, that prostitutes washed in his blood. Some translate this as Ahab having idols of prostitutes on his chariot, others that prostitutes were washing in the same pool where the blood was washed from the chariot. Although not specifically stated here, some Hebrew histories state that this was the same place where Naboth was stoned.
