I think most everyone is familiar with King Ahab, and all the evil he did while King over Israel. King Ahab had 70 sons, and because they were royalty, even after he was no longer King, they were highly respected, and lived well. After all, they were royalty. 2 Kings 10:6 says of them, "...Now the king's sons, being seventy persons, were with the great men of the city, which brought them up." Little did they know that judgement would come upon them suddenly. God was about to bring payback on the house of Ahab for all the evils that he and his wife Jezebel had done, and God's prophet had anointed someone as King that was not of Ahab's household. That man gave a challenge to the city where Ahab's sons dwelt and told the men of the city that they had a choice. They could make one of Ahab's sons King in his stead and fight for him, or kill all of them, and serve him. The people of the city feared, so rather than fight for the house of Ahab, they gave into the demands.
And there came a messenger, and told him, saying, They have brought the heads of the king's sons. And he said, Lay ye them in two heaps at the entering in of the gate until the morning. 2 Kings 10:8
Imagine this picture. You are of the seed royal, living in luxury, among the most respected men in your city, feeling perfectly safe, and then sudden destruction comes. There is no reason to envy the wicked when they seem to be prospering, for their time will come.
