Monologue/Reflection: Naboth’s vineyard and temptation

Tempting when we want something.
What the temptation is depends, I suppose, on what we’d like to get our hands on.
For Ahab a vineyard was enough to make him happy, sufficient to accept the spoils of murder.
Naboth dead, Jezebel gained more points on the scorecard for which she became notorious.
