Wesley's Notes for 2 Kings 1:1


1:1 Moab - This had been subdued by David, as Edom was; and upon the division of his kingdom, Moab was adjoined to that of Israel, and Edom to that of Judah, each to that kingdom upon which it bordered. But when the kingdoms of Israel and Judah were weak and forsaken by God, they took that opportunity to revolt from them; Moab here, and Edom a little after.

    Gloria 's 2 kings ch 1 comment . You can find a little more information if you search on Internet. It will lead you to certain pages, where you can learn a little more about Elijah

    It seems Elijah appears out of nowhere, while other prophets can be traced to their tribes and heritage. There is no clear indication of his background, and makes me wonder if some books of the Bible are missing. Is it just me thinking this?
