Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 13:11


13:11 A prophet - One to whom, and by whom God did sometimes impart hismind; as it is manifest from ver.#20|, 21, and one that had a respect tothe Lord's holy prophets, and gave credit to their predictions: but whetherhe was a good man, may be doubted, seeing we find him in a downright lie,ver.#18|. And altho' an holy prophet may possibly have continued in thekingdom of Israel, he would never have gone from his own habitation,to dwell at Beth - el, the chief seat of idolatry, unless with design topreach against it: which it is evident he did not; his sons seem to havebeen present at, and, and to have joined with others in that idolatrousworship.
