1Kgs 20:1-7

Ahab's Wars with the Arameans 1King Ben-hadad of Aram gathered all his army together; thirty-two kings were with him, along with horses and chariots. He marched against Samaria, laid siege to it, and attacked it.2Then he sent messengers into the city to King Ahab of Israel, and said to him: “Thus says Ben-hadad:3Your silver and gold are mine; your fairest wives and children also are mine.”4The king of Israel answered, “As you say, my lord, O king, I am yours, and all that I have.”5The messengers came again and said: “Thus says Ben-hadad: I sent to you, saying, ‘Deliver to me your silver and gold, your wives and children’;6nevertheless I will send my servants to you tomorrow about this time, and they shall search your house and the houses of your servants, and lay hands on whatever pleases them, and take it away.”7Then the king of Israel called all the elders of the land, and said, “Look now! See how this man is seeking trouble; for he sent to me for my wives, my children, my silver, and my gold; and I did not refuse him.”
