All of the lands you could acquire, all of the gold you could dig up could not even come close to the value of one of your children. That, is heritage.
I looked up the name "Naboth" and, from some of the definitions I found, it means "fruits".
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Surely Naboth knew that real estate is actually worthless. But Naboth fully appreciated that his parents had left that land to him and he in turn was going to leave it to his children. That is a heritage worth dying for.
