Wife of king Ahab, a woman daring and rash, she displayed such impiety and madness as even to establish a shrine of the god of the Tyrians and Sidonians. Ahab himself, too, surpassed his predecessors in folly and wickedness.[1]
The prophet Elijah was a contemporary of these people.
Greek Original:
Ἰεζάβελ, γυνὴ τοῦ Ἀχαὰβ βασιλέως, γύναιον δραστήριον καὶ τολμηρόν, εἰς τοσαύτην ἀσέβειαν καὶ μανίαν προέπεσεν ὥστε καὶ ναὸν τῷ Τυρίων καὶ Σιδωνίων θεῷ κατασκευάσαι. καὶ αὐτὸς δὲ ὁ Ἀχαὰβ ἀνοίᾳ καὶ πονηρίᾳ πάντας τοὺς πρὸ αὑτοῦ ὑπερβέβηκεν. ἐπὶ τούτων ἦν Ἠλίας ὁ προφήτης.
