“Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the
LORD more than all who were before him. It came
 about, as though it had been a trivial thing for
him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat,
 that he married Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal
king of the Sidonians, and went to serve Baal and
worshiped him. So he erected an altar for Baal
 in the house of Baal which he built in Samaria.
”(1 Kings 16:30-32)
“Elijah came near to all the people and said,
"How long will you hesitate between two opinions?
If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow
 him."  (1 Kings 18:21)
