Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 18:42


18:42 The top of Carmel - Where he might pour out his prayers unto God;and whence he might look towards the sea. He had a large prospect of thesea from hence. The sailors at this day call it cape Carmel.Between his knees - That is, bowed his head so low, that it touched hisknees; thus abasing himself in the sense of his own meanness, now God hadthus honoured him.
