1 Kings 21:27-29 New International Version (NIV)
27 When Ahab heard these words, he tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and fasted. He lay in sackcloth and went around meekly.
28 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite: 29 “Have you noticed how Ahab has humbled himself before me? Because he has humbled himself, I will not bring this disaster in his day, but I will bring it on his house in the days of his son.”
King Ahab responded in this way to the warning from God through the Prophet Elijah. God declared that he would kill Ahab and all his male descendents as punishment for the wickedness and rebellion of Ahab.
But King Ahab truly repented and humbled himself. So God forgave him.
Let us be humble and repent our sins.

1 WAFALME 21:27-29
27 Ikawa, Ahabu alipoyasikia maneno hayo, akayararua mavazi yake, akavaa magunia mwilini mwake, akafunga, akajilaza juu ya magunia, akaenda kwa upole.
28 Neno la Bwana likaja kwa Eliya Mtishbi, kusema,
29 Huoni jinsi Ahabu alivyojidhili mbele yangu? Basi kwa sababu amejidhili mbele yangu, sitayaleta yale mabaya katika siku zake; ila katika siku za mwanawe nitayaleta mabaya hayo juu ya nyumba yake.
Mfalme Ahabu alifanya hivi kwa sababu Mungu alimwonya kupitia Nabii Eliya. Mungu alitaka kumwangamiza Mfalme Ahabu na watoto wake wote. Ni kwa sababu ya uasi na uovu wa Ahabu. Lakini Ahabu alitubu kweli na kujishusha. Kwa sababu hii Mungu alimsamehe.
Tuwe tayari kujishusha na kutubu dhambi zetu.
