Ben Hadad takes 32 kings from other places and sends a letter to Achav saying give us all you money, gold, silver and wives and children are mine unless you want a war. Achav said ok until Ben Hadad decided to to add his most precious idem(torah) and anything else his men want. For that Achav said no because the torah isn't only his it is all the jews. Before Achav said no he asked the zekeinim what he should do and the Zekeinim said don't give anything, so achav didn't.
This VS This
Ben Hadad told achav it is pointless to try and fight us because we have way more people you have no chance. And achav said back don't be as if you won before you fight.(A navi named מיכיהו told achav that achav is going win the war because hashem is going to help him. מיכיהו told him that the sons of the heads of other countries (that became jewish) and the 7000 jews that serve hashem would be the ones fighting.
When achav asked who would led them into war מיכיהו said that he(achav) would (in the end he didn't because he was too scared).ben hadad's servants told him that they saw some men leaving the shomron, he told them to capture them alive. THe 232 sons of heads of other countries were in the front and the 7000 were behind them the jews won!!! when Achav heard they were winning he went to the war scene to get some credit and killed a lot of people
When he got back מיכיהו told him to get ready because they were going to start another war. Ben hadad decided that the next war would not be in the mountains because the jew's g-d is there so they did it on dry land instead. the jews win again and מיכיהו tells achav to kill ben hadad and his people so that they don't keep bothering the jews.
ben hadad's servants said lets go to the jews i heard that they are nice and forgiving, when they went to achav he treated them nicely. ben hadad and achav made a treaty that ben hadad would give achav city's back and that achav would be able to sell his stuff in ben hadad's land,
and what ben hadad got out of this was his life and his land. מיכיהו covered his face so that achav wouldn't know it was him and then he told achav story that fit what achav did and asked him what was his reasoning was and then showed achav who he was. מיכיהו told achav that since he didn't kill ben hadad and his people like he was supposed to instead he and his people would die. achav goes home very angry.
