1 Kings 16:8 – 14

1. What might Zimri have against Elah? Is power hazardous to your health?

2. How is Zimri’s rise to power like Baasha’s ? Is Zimri part of Jehu’s prophecy (see chapter 16:3)? Why doesn’t Elah suspect Zimri? (verse 9)?

3. Why does Zimri execute the friends (as well as the family) of Baasha (verse 11)?

4. Have you ever been betrayed by a friend, or are you a good judge of character? How so?

5. Can you succeed by being nice in a “dog-eat-dog” world? Do you have to be violent to be safe? Explain.
