Ominous

"Prophesy nicely Micaiah, say something good"
said Ahab, king of Israel, for he well understood
that most of what came from the prophet's mouth
was doom.

"Go up to the battle for, yes, you'll succeed"
Micaiah said, but Ahab could read
the sarcasm.

"No, speak the truth" was the king's reply,
so Micaiah said that the king would die if he
went up against Aram.

"When did God's Spirit pass from me to you?"
the false prophet said, striking Micaiah who
uttered this ominous chide:

"You will see on that day
when you enter your room
to hide."
