The king of Israel said to his servants, “You know that Ramoth Gilead is ours, and we are still, and do not take it out of the hand of the king of Syria?” Bible

“Ramoth Gilead is ours.” Ramoth Gilead was technically given back to Israel in the treaty of 1 Kings 20:34, but the Syrians never actually returned it. Now Ahab would have to fight for it, and was killed in the battle.
