Ahab is known for being a wicked king. He was also the husband of the Bible's most wicked woman, Jezebel. In 1 Kings 21 he reveals his depravity by taking a poor man's life just so he can have the poor man's vinyard! He's the kind of man who God would never save, right? No. When Ahab repents before God, God responds to him in the same way He responds to you and I: He forgives him.
