As this stage in the story of Ahab- we see a wicked king who was being manipulated by his wife- the famous Jezebel.
We saw the showdown where God used his prophet to bring judgment against Israel- and we see in Ahab somewhat of a broken man.
Yet- the enemies of Israel make a mistake.
Benhadad the king of Syria forms an ungodly alliance- he then comes against Ahab.
Ahab seems to concede- and give up. [Some sites see here https://corpusoutreach.weebly.com/most-recent-posts/kings-201148092 ]
Then the Syrian king makes a mistake- he figures Ahab gave in so easily- he would push the limits.
Then God does something- he uses the young men in Israel to route the enemy.
