Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 18:46


18:46 The hand, &c. - God gave him more than natural strength, wherebyhe was enabled to outrun Ahab's chariot, for so many miles together.He girded, &c. - That his garments, which were long, might not hinder him.Ran before Ahab - To shew how ready he was to honour and serve the king,that by this humble and self - denying carriage, it might appear, what hehad done was not from envy or passion, but only from a just zeal for God'sglory: that by his presence with the king and his courtiers, he mightanimate and oblige them to proceed in the reformation of religion: and, todemonstrate, that he was neither ashamed of, nor afraid for what he haddone, but durst venture himself in the midst of his enemies.
