Jezebel

See also Ahab

A wicked woman in the Old Testament from the land of Phoenicia. She was the wife of Ahab (1 Kgs. 16:30–31), a king of Israel who reigned while Elijah was prophet.

Jezebel’s marriage to Ahab, more than any other single event, caused the downfall of the northern kingdom of Israel; Jezebel introduced into Israel the worst forms of idol worship from her land in place of the worship of Jehovah (1 Kgs. 18:13, 19).
