    So she wrote letters in Ahab's name and sealed them with his seal, and she sent the letters to the elders and the leaders who lived with Naboth in his city. And she wrote in the letters, “Proclaim a fast, and set Naboth at the head of the people. 10 And set two worthless men opposite him, and let them bring a charge against him, saying, ‘You have ___________.’ Then take him out and stone him to death.” -1 Kings 21:8-10

    • C.

      Been seen working on the Sabbath

    Correct Answer
    A. Cursed God and the king
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "cursed God and the king" because Queen Jezebel is plotting to have Naboth falsely accused and executed. By writing letters in Ahab's name and using his seal, she is manipulating the elders and leaders to proclaim a fast and set Naboth at the head of the people. Then, she instructs them to bring false charges against Naboth, accusing him of cursing God and the king, which would be a serious offense. This manipulation ultimately leads to Naboth's death.
