Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 14:13


14:13 Shall mourn - For the loss of so worthy and hopeful a person, andfor the sad calamities which will follow his death, which possibly hismoderation, and wisdom, and virtue, might have prevented. So they shouldmourn, not simply for him, but for their own loss in him. Grave - Shallhave the honour of burial. Some good - Pious intentions of taking awaythe calves, and of permitting or obliging his people to go up toJerusalem to worship, if God gave him life and authority to do it, andof trusting God with his kingdom. In the house - Which is added for hisgreater commendation; he was good in the midst of so many temptations andwicked examples; a good branch of a bad flock.


Discussion for 1 Kings 14

    RALPH M. WATERS I believe all babies and Children are innocent, Jesus says to come to him as children. That tells me that Jesus wants us all to be as innocent as a child they don't know evil they are very forgiving, loving, humble, and honest. I believe an aborted, or abused child's souls go to heaven before they are abused or aborted. And We all have to answer to God in the end.
  • Irene123
    God does not 'take' anyone. He gave the human race FREE WILL - to chose Him or satan. Abortion is a free will choice of the mother, not God; the soul of the child goes to God - forever. We all have a time to die; only God knows when. That is why we must repent, be baptized in the NAME OF JESUS, and receive the Holy Ghost while it is yet 'day'; while GRACE reigns.
  • It was true when 1 Kings was written and it is true today and will be true forever It is God s word
  • RALPH M. WATERS
    THE ONE THINK THAT STRIKES ME IN THIS CHAPTER, IS VERSES 12 & 13. A FEW MONTHS BACK I SPOKE ON "ABORTION", SOME ASKED WHY WOULD GOD TAKE A CHILD, WHO DID NO GOOD OR EVIL. I EXPLAINED TO THEM HOW GOD KNOWS US FROM THE VERY WOMB, WHETHER WE WILL BE GOOD OR EVIL, WHETHER WE WILL BE RAISED IN THE LATTER DAYS TO GLORIFICATION OR DAMNATION. ACTUALLY, LIVING, IS JUST A PROCESS, GOD ALERADY, KNOWS WHO BELONG TO HIM.
